We have just returned from an overnight stay at this hotel, where we had paid just over £109 for a deluxe room on a B & B board basis.
First of all I would say that the location of this hotel was the main draw for us, and this did not disappoint. Walking into town only takes a couple of minutes, yet the street that the hotel is situated on is lovely and peaceful with beautiful views of the River Ness.
Our room was located in the main building and had splendid views of the River from the bay window. The room was a great size, but when I opened the bathroom door for a quick look I was extremely disappointed as it was old, tired and in dire need of updating. The bathroom is painted a horrible dark brown colour and the suite needs to be ripped out and replaced. There is no window in the bathroom (I know is not unusual) and no extractor fan, therefore ventilating the bathroom is impossible and the only solution for this is to leave the bathroom door open, with the bedroom resulting in becoming damp. The shower itself was pretty hopeless with next to no power, thereby not leaving us feeling very refreshed.
The bedroom appeared to have been recently 'decorated'. By this, it would appear to have had a quick lick of paint and new carpet. It is such a shame that the bed was not replaced at the same time. It was an old four poster bed that looked and felt like it was going to collapse the minute you touched it. Just breathing while in bed seem to cause noise which consequently meant that we had a very poor nights sleep.
The main bedroom is in dire need of a good clean. The first thing we noticed was the significant amount of cobwebs on the window frame, which looked like they had been there for some considerable time. There were stains on the chairs which is rather off-putting and the amount of dust on what appeared to be a new mirror was just inexcusable to note a few points.
The breakfast we experienced at the hotel was adequate. I had the kippers and my husband pipped for the Highlander breakfast. We were both happy with what we received and the service was both friendly and efficient.
All things considered we probably won't be returning to the Glen Mhor as we feel that we did not get value for money, and there is plenty other choice in this area of town which seem to fair better in the ratings.
