Stayed here as a stop over while we were on our way home. Was conveniently located to the main motorway. Lady on check in was nice and all other staff member we met were also really nice and polite. Breakfast was nice in the morning and plenty of things close by to keep kids occupied.

Booked the Hogmanay Ball at the Alona Hotel - 5 course meal was excellent and well served by the staff - a ceilidh band, pipers, country dancers made it a great night. The DJ played a good variety of music to suit everyone at the ball - especially during the breaks taken by the band! We were there with relatives...

We came to the Alona for Christmas dinner this year and we were really pleasantly surprised. Plenty of parking available, staff were super friendly and polite and the room decorated beautifully. There were 11 of us ( including a toddler) and I noticed they had wisely tried to put families with young children around the outside of the room which...

Stopped over on night on way up to Inverness and was really pleased with all aspects of the visit. The room was a real bargain, including breakfast. Evening meal was lovely and the availability of gluten free bread added to the experience.

We were very pleased with the welcome we received upon arriving at the hotel, we were offered a wake up call and a free newspaper for the following morning all with a smile. We had pre-paid for the breakfast the next day which was made to order after ordering from the menu. The food that arrived looked a little lack...

I was up there for business. The hotel is in a lovely location in the Strathclyde Country Park. Although there is a leisure park next to it this was not open while I was at the hotel so it had no visitors and created no noise nuisance. The hotel has plenty of parking, the reception staff were very nice and...
