Service here is incredible. Well-staffed, experienced, attentive-- the highlight of the stay. Setting is Scottish suburban and visited in the off-season so didn't get a sense of the grounds. Food and beverage had a formality that were worth the trip.

6/10 Good

5 star? Hardly
We were given one key - placed in a slot to keep electrics on: Fine, until one of us wanted to leave and return to the room. The room was lovely and the bathroom spacious. However, it was cold and the heater inoperative. I slept with socks on too. The towel rail was nice and hot. The ceiling light at the door didn't work and bedside lights shaded and so far from bed that reading not at all easy. In the morning the room was cold and the towel rail also. Neither was operable by me. There was a small amount of black mould behind the bath taps. Altogether not great. Shame really cos it could be fabulous .

Will be back! And not one time
Amazing. Quality with everything is outstanding. Food is top notch. Only small note is the dog friendly. Yes, you can bring a dog but only to the one room type (which was nice enough), and dogs are not allowed in the bar, only in the lobby. That was a bit of a disappointment but the whole overall stay was brilliant

Not 5 star
Hotel was nice but room not 5 star been in better rooms at 4 star hotels spa was fully booked and unable to order tea and cake in bar in afternoon as they did not offer that as not on the menu? Private party in suite next to my room which was very noisy I did complain but nothing done apart from offer to take 2 drinks off the bill when checking out. Food was ok but again not 5 star I won’t be rushing back to this hotel anytime soon

Lovely stay
Room very comfortable and had everything we needed. Excellent breakfast served in the morning. We had dinner one of the evenings as well and it was delicious. Highly recommend the marcliffe. Gym small but adequate. Cleanliness can be improved but also challenging in a big hotel.
