I stayed in the Struan building which is separate from the main hotel for 1st and 2nd April. Had a first floor room, unfortunately not river side, but still a really nice room with a sledge type bed.
Room was clean and spacious with ensuite shower room, all good. Wifi is available, although it is a bit weak, but I have never yet stayed anywhere with a good strong signal, so forget trying to get any work done and take a wander past the castle into town.
Parking is free round the back of the hotel, and you exit with a code which caused me as few problems as I couldn't reach the panel , so for anyone 5ft 4 or less or with short arms, may I recommend a pencil!
It is centrally located, a short walk to shops and pubs, although Nico's Bar is within the hotel , a lovely bar with lots of character and a wood burner fire, nice and cosy and there is some entertainment some evenings e.g. Tuesday is Jazz night. The restaurant offers a variety of food, like moules marinières, steak, burgers and a couple of vegetarian options . I had a massive portion of fish n chips one night and Gnocci the second, with a lovely tart tartin for pud (with a cheeky Pedro Ximines dessert wine - yummy) and a vanilla crème brulee the second. My only criticism is that there isn't much available if you don't want a full meal e.g sandwiches , so come with a good appetite.
Breakfast was great; a continental spread ( fairly limited options) with fruit juice, cereal, pastries, dried fruit, porridge on request, yoghurt and toast, and you get a choice of a hot meal, cooked breakfast, vegetarian cooked breakfast, American pancakes and choice of eggs. I had scrambled eggs one day which arrived before I could make my toast and beautifully cooked poached eggs the following morning (didn't fall into the toast trap the second day). You can also read a complimentary local paper while chomping down.
At all times my stay was facilitated by the extremely attentive team of waiting staff and Celia at reception; I had a really nice chat with a young lady from Gairloch, who obviously enjoys her work, life working in a hotel must be hard, there early in the morning, and back for evening shift, and she had a lovely disposition and I would like to thank her for taking the time to converse with me ( I wish I could remember her name).
All in all I would return in a flash. Its not the usual type of hotel with lots of different accommodation options, something that will suit all.
Thanks again for a lovely stay
