I've stayed in hotels all over the UK and what a gem this was! Looking to stay in Campbeltown for one night, I checked with Tripadvisor and found this at the top of the pile - always a good sign!
Probably a good job I did, as I would have easily passed this 'town center' hotel by, going on 'outward' appearance. But as the title suggests, dont judge a book by its cover.
The recption staff were friendly and polite.
The 'standard' room we had was huge, in good decor and clean. (Room 16) In fact the bathroom alone was probably bigger than the smallest hotel room Ive ever stayed in! .
The bed really was 'King Size' - bigger I think!...and very comfortable.
The Shower cubicle was stand alone ...and the shower worked with some good pressure.
The bar down stairs was clearly well used by locals and the bar staff were a friendly lot.
The Grille restaurant evening meal food was superb...as was the breakfast the following day.
In all, as good a hotel as Ive stayed in and at a very competitive cost.
Highly recommended and defintely on my 'to go back to' list next time in that part of the world.
