Just came back today from a lovely weekend at the Mackays hotel in Strathpeffer. from reading previous reviews I think I new what to expect from the decor and they were not wrong. It has not seen an uphosterer or an interior decorator for a very long time. Still not put off we headed over for dinner. The first meal was ok, very basic but ok. This became progressively worse over the weekend. Do not eat the porridge as it was not porridge as I know it. When I was given my cheese and biscuits I could only look in shock at the stale dried up cheese that still had the grated end on it as if the cook had grated a bit and gave me what was left, the grapes on the plate were filthy. Breakfast , there was plenty tea, coffee and toast though along with a small fry up just set us up for the day. Don't let the food put you off though as there is a nice coffe shop across the road that does a nice bite to eat. there is also a grocery store right across the road for wine, nibbles and newspapers. We then went off for a lovely excursion to Tane , Dornoch and the Falls of Shin. This was a lovely day out with some amazing views. The Falls of Shin / Harrods in the Highlands was a nice pit stop. We did not take the Sunday excursion to Ullapool as we chose to spend the day in the spa. This was a lovely surprise. The pool was not big but just enough for a refreshing dip, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were all clean and modern. I relaxed by the pool reading my book, with the occassional dip in the jacuzzi. This was more like it. The gym was well equipped, not that modern but there was a treadmill, cross traner, bike and a multi gym for your weights. Every thing you need for a workout. Enterainment was a bit hit and miss, the DJ on the Saturday night was good with a good mix of music. This was helped of course by the £1 drinks which where all good brands which was a nice surprise. Overall we had a really nice weekend, and we will definately go back with family and friends.
