I have to agree with the comments written by Revanti. If you want 5 star hotels stay away.
Defo in need of a good overhaul but it is not a total disaster. This is an extremely old building
so dont expect too much.
My room was clean and comfortable, the staff were extremely pleasent, dinner was excellent,
chicken liver pate, poached salmon fillet, fresh seasonal veg and new potaotes, dessert and coffee. Following morning we had breakfast in the very pleasent dining room, fruit juice, cereal and full scottish breakfast, toast tea and coffee. Paid £60.00 on a groupon deal. What do people really expect for that price. It would cost you as much to pitch a tent in a field and eat out for a three course evening meal and then eat our a full buffet breakfast.
Look past the decor and expect to get what you pay for. I stayed in room 15, massive bathroom with a shower cubicle and a bath, yes in need of some TLC for sure, out of the five light fittings in the room only one worked but so what! Comfy bed, clean room, a pleasent bar area, serving good food and a great nights sleep after a long trek.
