We decided to treat ourselves and stay at Fodors first choice for lodging for 2 nights. I am sorry we did. Our room was smaller than an average hotel room in the states. The bathroom was elegant and very upscale, but for about $370 a night, it was definetly not worth it. You had to pay for internet access and there was no coffee or hot water pot in the room. I guess they believe that if you can afford those prices, you can order room service! During our 14 day stay in Scotland we had stayed at much better places for the value of our money. This stay was our only mistake of our trip.
