2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The bedroom was very poor, it was identified as a classic room but it was very poor. The decoration was totally uninspiring, no pictures on the walls, poorly painted, the curtain were faded, and looked like they were from 1970s or 1980s. Old shabby furniture, and bedside lamps. Bathroom was no better, although the shower was good. Bathroom had a skylight which had not been cleaned for years. One of the bedroom windows was screwed shut and therefore the room was very warm and stuffy. We asked for another room, but we're told there were no other rooms available and it was only a classic room!!! Dinner was good. Staff worked hard, but it was clear they were inexperienced. Breakfast sounded good, but in reality was ok. For those who did not want a cooked breakfast it was simply cold ham, cheddar cheese and tomato, no croissants, rolls or pastries, all a bit disappointing!!

3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service
The very young staff were trying their best. But require training that I was advised was planned. The food my wife and friends wife had was deplorable so much so that we were compensated. We would rather have had the meal.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We had a wonderful stay at Fernhill. Everywhere was scrupulously clean and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The Covid measures in place worked well and we felt very 'safe'. In the dining room there were quite a lot of very young, presumably seasonal, staff who lacked experience and training, but they had an abundance of youthful charm and in no way detracted from our experience - if anything they added to it. The dinner menu was not very seasonal, meat options being accompanied by the likes of mashed turnip, cabbage, haggis bon-bons and (?)mustard mash. These seemed very wintery and stodgy on a hot, sunny day in mid-July. However on both nights we were there the fish options were excellent in every way and overall the food was wonderful. We look forward to returning.
