We went on a Turkey and Tinsel tour with Highland Heritage which was tremendous value and great fun. As others have said, there are a couple of downsides, doors are locked at 11.45 and there’s no wifi in the bedrooms, but apart from that, we really enjoyed our trip (and weren’t up at 11.45 to get locked out!) Our room,... More

The hotel has a great view across the water. The coach driver was foreign so it took a few days to get the gist of what he was saying. Nevertheless he was a good driver, helpful, friendly and obliging. Unfortunately the coach did not have a toilet and the holidaymakers were mainly senior citizens. The hotel could do with an...

We stayed in this hotel as part of a coach trip holiday but rooms are also available for other guests. The Hotel itself was spacious and clean and well laid out.

The hotel is in a stunning location. However the hotel itself is dated. We were on a Highland Heritage holiday and after spending 11 hours travelling were not in a position to complain. We were treated as though on a school trip, we had to line up outside the dining room to use hand sanitiser before being let in to... More

stayed at the Alexandra Hotel with my sister on a Highland Heritage coach tour. We asked for a superior twin room and this proved to be excellent with seating in a bay window and a sea view.
