    Superb

    Relaxing in the beautiful lounge, with views to the Firth of Forth, is a must! Our room was very spacious and excellent value for money.

    I was surprised that there was no free WiFi access.

    Superb

    I very much enjyed using the thermal suite, also found all the staff most polite and helpful.

    Although the room I had was comfortable, the bathroom area was a little cramped.

    Very good

    We enjoyed our short stay. The restaurant staff were very well trained and helpful. The food we had in the restaurant was excellent - fine perforamnce from Chef. Staff in the Spa were also polite and very helpful.

    1. The bed in room 101 is too small. Should be minimum King Size. 2. Service in the bar was very slow on Friday night. After 12 minutes we left and went straight to the Dining Room for dinner

    The spacious ground floor lounge area sets out what should be a good hotel with wonderful views of the Firth of Forth and the Fife coast. Unfortuneately that is the only good part of our visit to this Hotel.

    The standard of the room allocated to my wife and I is well below the standard this Hotel should be offering. Poor storage for clothes, tea and coffee making had to be placed on the floor, TV at 90 degree wiewing from the bed position. The room was one of the lowest standards we have experienced in years. The shower my wife described accurately as a poor leak of water. McDonald hotel you represent very poor value for money, you have much competition if you don't improve you will not survive. I would love to speak with the Hotel Manager our details are known to him.

    Fabulous

    The location is great - next to the seaside golf course. I like the elegent looks of the hotel building and the high ceiling of rooms. The food was really nice & unusal but a little pricy, perhaps for fantastic the sea view? £131 for a twin room bed only is not cheap for the experience in this charming seaside town, North Bewick, is priceless.....

    The building is old but kept up to date almost except the carpet is little dated and the window frames are old and hard to open.

    The nice architecture and location of the of the building being close to the beach inspired me to book there.

    The bed was very creeky and the pillows were flat. The Hotel did exchange the pillows on request, however.

    Fabulous

    The Spa and The views from the lounge.

    The window in our bedroom needed replaced or at least painted! And the bathroom sink had large crack and needs replaced.

    A clean, modern, spacious version of an old-fashioned hotel, with wonderful views.

    The room was a little small - not easy for both of us to enjoy the view at the same time.
