Lots to do here, go see a film in the cinema or go for a meal at a variety of places, the fun station is a good place to go before a film. I haven't tried the laser place yet. Starbucks I go quite a bit the staff are friendly and helpful.
Popped in on Friday with my husband and teenage daughter. The museum was great with excellent displays about Scottish history. My mum's maiden name is Stuart and there the Stuart's of Bute are our ancestors so the information relating to them was great. Particularly loved the taxidermy. Was able to see a wolf, eagle, puma and Scottish wildcat. Worth a visit. Slight niggle.. There was no aircon which it badly needed on Friday as the heat was ridiculous in there.
This place is exceptional! Live music not too loud, fantastic food, kind and helpful stuff! Amazing Cabernet chauvignon from Chile and beers!!! I'm a vegetarian and I had great options of what to order!
I enjoyed my stay very much at the Boath House. A beautiful building surrounded by exquisite gardens which were in perfect spring bloom. The rooms were comfortable and had everything I needed.
The food was good and the service was very friendly. My only criticism would be that I prefer a buffet style breakfast where a variety of cereals etc are on offer rather than having to choose from a menu. I would definitely stay there again if I was in that part of the world.
Stayed in the hotel for a weekend and ate breakfast and dinner here. Food was fantastic and good value for money compared to where we live. Couldnt really say it has a great view unless you are an ardent Kille fan as it overlooks the stadium and car park. But as I said I would heartly recommend the food.
This mid-town hotel has the prestige trimmings of a hotel twice the price, from a very comfortable bed and high-end furnishings to complimentary gin and sherry. The spa, bar and conference facilities are impressive and staff are welcoming and polite. My only gripe is the night-long chorus from hotel's resident rooftop collection of gulls and pigeons. So despite the prestige and comfort, I had very little sleep and a morning headache. Something needs to be done about that as it definitely ruins the stay. This issue may only affect the rooftop facing rooms though.
We spent one night, sadly only 1 night, at the River Hotel in Oxford. It is a quaint place with great breakfast. Wonderful location for a river walk in the morning and just down the hill form Oxford proper. Very helpful staff that sent us to The Punter pub for dinner. Terrific.
Eight of us met here after work before heading to a local eating place. Had never visited The Dog House before and have to say a very interesting and quirky pub. There is certainly a lot going on with music playing, an old film on the large TV, plenty on the walls to read and a dog wandering around the bar. Looking around the bar there was a mixed crowd from after workers to trendy twenty somethings. I enjoyed meeting here for a drink before going on somewhere else but not sure it is somewhere I personally would go out my way to visit. It does fit the young and student vibe of Clerk St and the surrounding area. If you are in the area is worth visiting and forming your own opinion as I think it will appeal to some and not to others. They serve a very good pint of Caledonian Rare Red Ale.
Everything from the ‘meet & greet’ to the restaurant and rooftop bar was a delight. The staff are incredibly attentive and personable. The room was comfortable and elegant if a little compact. But this is such a perfectly placed boutique hotel. We’ve already told lots of our friends that is is a place not to be missed!
Stopped here for supper last night, nice menu plenty of seating, friendly greeting. We ordered starters and mains, nice food prepared fresh great pizzas. Drinks a bit expensive just ordering a glass of wine each, that said everything served with a smile.
I was wary as I had seen quite a few bad reviews online, but I loved the theme so I wanted to go for the experience. When we arrived, I was really impressed by both the church exterior and the atmospheric interior. A lot of work has gone into giving it a spooky laboratory feel. I wanted to try one of the themed cocktails, but as a non-drinker, I was fully prepared for having to settle for a plain soft drink. To my delight, one of the bar staff made a non-alcoholic version of the Bloody Mary Shelley cocktail for me and adjusted the price too. We also had starters and main courses which were very filling. The burgers were dripping with slightly too much grease and the food was slightly cooler than hot, but otherwise, it was enjoyable. I was concerned we weren't going to be there long enough to see the monster show, but it actually started around fifteen minutes earlier than scheduled, which was lucky for us, but something to be wary of if you are going out of your way to be there for it. The show itself was amazing. It only lasts for a couple of minutes or so but I could feel myself sitting there, burger in hand, grinning up at the display in amazement. Worth a visit!
This is a great day out as there is so much to see. Having a nice sunshiny day helps but not essential. The house is undergoing a lot of renovation but do not be put off, there is lots to see in the house. The house is rather impressive with some amazing rooms. Do also visit the other places in the grounds like the kitchen gardens, Orangery and shop as well as the cafes on site. The gardens are really impressive too, do walk around these. A fabulous day out.
