My friend and I had a lovely two night stay at the Moorings Hotel. We chose the Whisky Package: two nights B&B with one dinner, a room upgrade and a whisky tasting - a great deal! The hotel is very well maintained and the staff friendly and helpful. Our room looked on to the canal and the Nevis range, and the beds were very comfortable. Minor gripes were the eratic wifi signal, the very low and uncomfortable sofa in the room, and the fact that there was nowhere obvious to plug in the kettle (we had to put it on the floor!); but none of these were a big deal, really.
Contrary to some reviews, we thought the food was excellent! Service *was* a little disorganised at breakfast (we still hadn't received tea and coffee one morning or been asked for our order, yet a couple who came in after us had both) but the food was very good throughout our stay (including our packed lunch!).
I've stayed in a few hotels in this area over the years, and The Moorings could certainly teach some of the others a lesson or two. Keep up the good work!
