Really good impressive hotel, with very good, able staff, who looked after us well
Overpriced pretty ordinary food
Staff were very efficient even though it was very busy. Food was delicious and atmosphere was really good with soothing music in background at right level to still allow us to chat.
Booked Blairs for our daughter’s graduation meal as it states on website a gluten free menu, 3 of our party of 9 are Coeliac. When seated for dinner we asked for gluten free menu to be told they do not have one but could advise us, bit disappointed but went ahead. Starters were delicious. My daughter’s main course arrived , beef cheeks, she noticed item and questioned if it was GF, oh no, it was taken away and replaced.We were told all of this was GF.Dessert menu arrived only GF option was a brownie , ice cream or sorbet. For a restaurant of this calibre I would have expected better, we can have a GF brownie in any cafe. In the end there were no brownies left and daughter very disappointed did not want ice-cream. This was a special occasion and at time of booking dietary requirements were noted. On a positive note service provided by Elena was exceptional .
Most of the meal was good however I got the rack of lamb and I was unable to even cut it with my knife i mentioned this to the waitress and she apologised but nothing else was done about. Also to ask someone if they want water and charge £5 for it is appalling!
Service was excellent and we were made to feel welcome from arrival to departure. The staff were delightful! The afternoon tea was lovely but I cannot comment on the price as I used a voucher. The cost of nearly £12 for 3 additional coffees was a little higher than I expected therefore less than 5 stars on price.
We were very well taken care of and the food was lovely will definitely be coming back again
Brilliant food, friendly staff and fantastic experience. Very highly recommended.
Food was delicious and service was very good.
Fantastic restaurant. Great staff. Great food. Definitely recommend this place.
Had an excellent time. Cannot fault anything. Loved every minute. Will definitely be back again.
Lovely decor and good srvice😀
Had a lovely meal, food and service both excellent, would recommend the chef's signature lamb dish and the haggis fritters for anyone to try
It's the 2nd afternoon tea I have had there is 2 months and both were fantastic. The staff are lovely and helpful. Price is competitive. Only improvement is that putting a gluten free afternoon tea on the same tray as the gluten food could spell disaster.
Amazing food and lovely staff, chatty but not intrusive. The only negative through dining experience was the request for a soft drink that had to be repeated and when it did arrive we had to pour out the melted ice water before pouring the drink. Nothing to do with the food at all - it truly was delicious!!
Very attentive service. Amazing food. Definitely would recommend.
Excellent evening and spa use. Food very good and the staff friendly and helpful.
We both enjoyed our stay, excellent service, fine food, relaxed atmosphere and comfortable room. Thank you for making our anniversary well remembered and an enjoyable experience.
Our afternoon tea was amazing. The food was beautiful to look at and tasted even better. The atmosphere was lovely sitting in front of an open fire looking out over the snow covered grounds.
It was a complimentary tea due to cancellation of my daughters birthday spa treatments but it was nice anyway. We enjoyed and will be back for our treatments soon.
We were so looking forward to our meal at Blair’s, however, I consider over an hour wait between finishing our starter course to receiving our luke warm mains, completely apalling. We actually watched numerous diners, who arrived much later than us, finish their 3 courses and then leave before we had our main course. We had to ask our waiter what the hold up was and were told ‘the restaurant was very busy this evening’, by which time most other diners had left. I am a type 1 diabetic that requires insulin injections before every meal. Having this unacceptable delay between courses is dangerous and completely unacceptable. The meal was an utter disappointment for me. I told the waiter that it was not warm and his reponse was that it had come straight from the kitchen. Needless to say, we didn’t stay for desert and I would definitely NOT recommend Blair’s to anyone.
Lovely overnight stay in a Privelage room with breakfast and complimentary wine. Made use of the pool facilities both days. My highlight of the stay was the delicious 3 course evening meal.
We were very happy with our experience at Blair’s restaurant and would highly recommend the restaurant.
Beautiful meal in a beautiful setting. Service was impeccable, friendly & efficient. Highly recommend the food.
