Stayed at the Burnside hotel this weekend, on arrival it didn't look very welcoming from the outside but when we went inside it was amazing. Hotel staff were very friendly and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them and I will definitely be back.

We booked this room for our anniversary at £275 a night. This is an honest review of the good and not so good points. I should point out that I spend my working life in hotels so I'm probably a bit picky! The good: the room is split over three levels and works well. On entry, which is actually room...
