  1. The Famous Grouse Hotel

    * 1/2

    stayed 3 days end june 2016. restaurant and staff were good, accommodation was not. no noise insulation and when they changed kegs for 35 mins at 11pm it was like they were doing it in the bathroom. band on sat night till 1.15am then kegs again. complained to manager and was told he didn't care. two members of our group ( we had all the rooms booked out) left the hotel and stayed in a local motel. for a 5 yr old hotel, it was drab and dated. Poor lighting in rooms, king bed was two singles pushed together with ridge in middle. breakfast had to be taken in room as restaurant did open till 8am. not good for group bookings it is just a booze barn and should close the accommodation

    Business response

    We are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We all enjoyed having your group to stay and don't recall anyone leaving to stay at the local motel, everyone's rooms remained occupied for the whole stay. We received many compliments from your group but unfortunately none from yourself, quite the opposite. Our breakfast menu is available from 7am so we're not sure where you got your information from. Our hotel is only 5 years old and definitely not dated, maybe you would have enjoyed your time at the motel instead?

    Overall the experience was nice, the staff weren't great but they weren't bad. Our orders were taken very promptly, we had the samosas and spring roll starter, they were just the from the box type. I had the apricot filo and my partner had the steak, they were both lovely and he really enjoyed being able to pick his sides and sauce. I think that the restaurant section needs to be separated from the pub as there were 2 rugby teams in the pub who were quite loud. I would definitely go back, just in more casual clothes.

    I must completely disagree with the previous review as i think the food and service we recieved was fabulous. My wife and i went in for dinner and was greeted by a warm and friendly waitress who not only made sure our order was taken promtly but we also never had to ask for a drink as they were always on hand to assist. My wife ordered the fish of the day and i had the steak which were both cooked to perfection and as for the desert we both struggled to choose from the great choice but ended up deciding on the cheesecake which was great, oh and i also forgot to mention that the starters we recieved were a great start to a great evening out. The only other thing i wish to add is that i found the whole experience fantastic and my wife and i will definatley be dining there again soon because the atmosphere in the pub was very warm and welcoming.
