......and that isn't an ironic term of endearment. We had to stay here for work purposes, so that isn't so bad, it's not like we actually picked it or paid for it! Small mercies really.
As many have said, this hotel is tired. Don't think for a second that this is the kind of tired that gives it a quaint charm, it's more like it nodded off in 1970 and slipped into a coma. The walls bubble where damp is having a field day, the smell of mildew is exquisite and the room temperature - Arctic.
Breakfast was bizarre. More servers than guests but possibly the slowest service ever. Our favourite part was the travelling ketchup pot. God forbid you don't take enough ketchup as it sojourns briefly on your table as quickly as it arrives it's whisked off to the next, then the next.
At a rate of well over £80 a night on corporate rates you'd think we could have our own mini pot, or even a bottle, we're not fussy.
The best bit of our stay was waving to the lovely Highland cow as we left.
