“Above average”


'I have stayed at the hotel numerous times over the years with work and I can’t fault the price or cleanliness of the rooms.

Shower is efficient and plenty of towels.

TV on the small side but adequate.

Nice comfy beds.

The only problem is how warm the room gets and that’s with the windows open, I am roasting throughout the night and hence the drop in rating.

The receptionist is polite, attentive and is a positive for the hotel.

Car park is lacking before 6pm when the council opens up their carpark for use of hotel guests.'


Our wedding service caters for celebrations varying in size from an intimate wedding for close family and friends to a large celebration for up to two hundred guests. The Great Room and Pipers function room, both within the Best Western Grand Hotel, were fully refurbished in February 2008 and now offers a dramatic and historic location with all of the facilities you would expect of a modern wedding venue.
