We had a great night. The food was very good, entertainment excellent. It was very good value for the money paid. If I had known about the package which included overnight stay at the hotel, we would have booked that.

Service was very slow despite the restaurant being very quiet. Part of the main course was served but I had to wait approximately 10 minutes for the rest. We’ve been before and never seemed to have this problem. Will think twice about booking again.

Having dined at each of the four simpsinns on many occasions and celebrated our 61st wedding anniversary with a 3 night break at The Gailes 2years ago I would have no hesitation in recommending the Gailes Hotel as first class. At each of the other simpsinns you will get a great service and excellent dining experience.

The staff were awesome especially the woman who took our booking, she really looked after us on the night, ensuring that my fiance could see the champions league final. I really liked the atmosphere in the new sports bar and will probably be back there again since we live nearby.

We had afternoon tea with Prosecco. The sandwiches were lovely with lots of filling. The cakes however were very disappointing. We asked for plain scones rather than fruit and we're told "We only buy in fruit" ! What happened to home made scones?? The rest of the cakes were also bought in and they were not very nice. The mini doughnuts were solid as was the mini eclair and carrot cake. The other mini tray bake pieces were sloppy as we're obviously frozen and defrosted quickly. For me afternoon tea is all about the home baking, cakes, scones and meringues. The setting and service were first class as were the kids meals, Mac & cheese and chicken strips.

Sorry to hear the feedback regarding the cakes. I will take this issue up with the kitchen team as not our usual high standard.
