Travelling home from the north of Scotland, this was meant to be a special stop over. At nearly£100 for B and B this place is not cheap. We read the reviews and were much encouraged. I had asked for a room with a nice view and our thanks to the hotel for giving us a room with a spectacular view over the boats in the marina and the Islands beyond.
The room was well furnished and had some quality to it. this was spoiled in the morning when the shower tray filled with horrible looking water when the drain did not work. It was a simple job for someone to clean it. Its strange how you remember that rather than the general high quality of the room. By the way the access to the room was up some very narrow stairs. You need to be able to carry your luggage up.
The evening meal was good and staff were professional.
Breakfast was not good. the fruit consisted of a choice of tinned grapefruit, tinned mandarins or tinned prunes. There were small packets of cereal. At £100, very disappointing. Toast was delivered as we sat down. By the time we came to want to eat it was cold. I saw the waiter making coffee in a pot from a large tin of nescafe! I challenged this and pointed to the Italian coffee machine just behind him. Why not a proper coffee from there. "Because its easier and quicker to make nescafe." I said that I would prefer a real cup. Which he said was OK but he would have to charge me for it.! Disappointing.
The cooked breakfast arrived and was OK, but a bit greasy.
So very disappointing. This place could and should be first class. It was just pretending on our visit.
