“Poor expensive food”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We stopped here just by chance on our way back from John O'Groats. As soon as we walked in I knew we had made a mistake. But we thought we would chance it. My daughter and I had the haddock and chips, which turned out to be very deep fried, with a thick awful batter. My wife had the salmon which smelled off. We left the food pretty much uneaten, but that didn't seem to raise an eyebrow, so I guess that must be used to food being left. Being polite brits we paid and left. I'd avoid and keep driving.

“Price increase!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Very disappointed with our last visit (and it will be our last!)
We were given a menu, so we picked our food, while half way through our main course we were told by a waitress that there had been a price increase, so we would have to pay more for our meal than the price on the menu, not wanting to cause a scene we paid and left.
That was my third visit in less than a month, I have gone from recommending the hotel to my friends, family and work colleagues to warning them all not to go due to the price increase between ordering and paying.

Plus a light in the male toilets wouldn't go amiss.
