Stop off for the night to break a longish journey on an night when the weather was very wild. We have used the MacDonald chain of hotels before for both business and pleasure trips. We had a warm welcome from the reception desk staff and were informed of an upgrade to one of the feature rooms in the original part of the hotel. Lovely room, very comfortable even though it was blowing a hooly outside. Had evening meal in the restaurant which was spot on - though the dining room was a wee bit cold for the other-half. Food was great, service was fine - overall meal was lovely. I had chicken and backpudding terine to start, a very very good steak for main and a delightful creme brulle to finish. Good food, and I think pretty good value.
Watch out for the post code navigation if you use sat-nav to get to the hotel - we ended up at both a local golf club and a local carvery restaurant (who kindly gave us good directions on how to find the hotel).
Breakfast following morning was good but with a degree of chaos - busy time, perhaps not quite enough staff for a fast start to the day, but I was lucky to have a relaxed start. The MacDonald chain use Sornoway blackpudding for breakfast (and with the chicken terine I had the previous night) - spot on in my books, if I could only find a local supplier!
The feature rooms have character and are very comfortable, I don't know how they compare to the more modern rooms, but I'd have a feature one again.
As seems to be standard with MacDonald hotels - all the staff were great, attentive and friendy - even when (as at breakfast) pretty busy.
We will use this hotel again, even if it is slightly off the beaten track when it comes to leaving/joining the M74 motorway.
