Paul Pope says:From an original booking for sixteen people, to a final eleven, with a number of name changes, nothing was too much trouble. The accomodation was first class, the Hotel was clean, tidy, and well maintained. My wife especially, was extremely impressed with the dining area, the breakfast was fantastic, the waitress' do a wonderful job. And when we came in one night with a "chinese" Doug even laid up a table for us. We will be going back again next year (but we will beat Blackpool F.C. then)!! and will be looking forward to staying at the Canasta again.
Many thanks to Doug and his family, and all the staff.
Paul Pope.
Our Reply:Hi Paul (and the gang)
Many thanks for your comments - shame it was such a long way to come just for one point (smirk...)
It was our pleasure and we hope to see you again next year

You have a very comfortable hotel - the breakfast is good too!
Hope you enjoyed your stay in Edinburgh, the sun shone nicely for us all, didn't it!
It was nice to see your cheery wave on the motorway.
Until next time, Kind regards, Barbara Rivington

Yes - we had a GREAT time in Edinburgh but didn't get any golf in because it was a bit damp
Hope to see you again

good luck in the future to Canasta, its a lovely bright and clean hotel and we will definitely recommend our friends and family to stay with you.thanks again.!!!

Thanks for your kind comments
Yes...I am aware that the rooms right at the top can be chilly - I think the central heating pump is ready for changing BUT you really shouldn't have put up with it - we have loads of free standing radiators for just such an event - if you'd mentioned it to me I'd have made sure the room was nice and warm
Thanks again and hope to see you all again soon

Dave, Helen & kids (plus nanny & grandad) says:Brilliant time had by all...the boys especially enjoyed the pancakes! Thanks for that idea Doug, and also for the encouragement. Dave loved the tour round your kitchen. Hope we can match your standards in the future. Long may you prosper at North Shore. Once we've spruced up South Shore we may well be up your way. However...we would welcome the competition to maintain standards!!

Colleen Kneen says:Dear Dougie and Mandy - Thanks for a brilliant week end. The refurbishments are fantastic. And all the little touches you have put have made it your own.The girls at breakfast couldn't do enough to please.The room was lovely especially the suprise of a four poster bed plus wine and balloons.You both made us feel special. We enjoyed it when we came a year ago but since you've bought next door it's fantastic.Can't wait to come back in March - we'll never be away now.
Thank you once again - I would advise anyone to book early as you will find it hard to get a room.
Love Colleen and Phil
