Was a very nice hotel. Staff were helpful. Food was extortionate paid 19.00 for bangers and mash with no veg. When I booked on line breakfast was 12.00 if you wanted. Realised I had not booked it later so when I arrived for breakfast in the morning willing to pay was told it would be 16.95 each. So went to spoons.

Lovely bed which was large and comfortable. Walk in shower, rather than the more alkward over bath type. Very clean and nice fluffy towels. Excellent position close to Motorway. Getting in is a slight problem if coming from south as you have to pass hotel turn into side road and come back to the hotel as direct access is blocked across double white line on main road. Only other negative was a fairly limited selection on the Resturant menu.

Thank you for your amazing review of your stay at the Macdonald Tickled Trout Hotel. It's so lovely to hear you enjoyed your Executive Double Room, complete with walk in shower and huge super king sized bed! To access us from the M6 South, just take the 2nd exit off the roundabout - and you're here! If you have any trouble getting to us, do please call our Reception team who's extensive knowledge of the area will certainly come in handy! Our Scottish Steakhouse Menu is available online for our guests to pursue prior to their stay - if you have any special request our Restaurant team will be more than happy to do their best to accommodate these. Thank you again
