The situation - I couldn't fault. The view when I got up of the sun rising over the bay was absolutely stunning.
The staff - well, it took reception quite a while to notice they had a person standing at the desk who'd like to check in, please, but otherwise they weren't bad.
The restaurant? Nice enough but not as special as it sounded, or as well made as I'd have hoped for. I wasn't very fond of their Now That's What I Call Scotland!-style CD that serenaded my meal with folk songs and bagpipes throughout.
The hotel and the room? Felt like they'd last been fitted out a very long time ago. Everything was dated and basic. My room was frankly cold when I arrived, the TV had a tiny selection of channels. The WiFi - reception only, it didn't even reach the dining room, which is far from ideal when dining alone.
Give the place a good going over so I'm not transported back to the 1980s quite so often. Give the kitchen a refresher course and a new CD. Buy an actual hotel WiFi system. And you've got a lovely building in a stunning location which I wouldn't hesistate to return to. Right now? It's just not good enough.More
