I have just returned home after a four night stay at this hotel with a coach party. Our luggage was taken from the coach to our room and back on the return journey. There are no lifts in this hotel so this was a great help. Our room was pretty clean (bit dusty in places) and comfortable and decorated quite nicely. An extra power point would have been handy for charging my phone but this was not a huge problem.
Breakfast on the whole was good but the choice was limited on days 2 and 3, with no fresh fruit or yogurt available and no cheese or ham. However the hot breakfast was excellent and cooked to order with a choice of how you would like your eggs cooked. The waiting staff were all pleasant and nothing was too much trouble even though they were rushed off their feet at times.
The evening meals were excellent. There was plenty of choice with 4 starters, 4 mains (2 meat, one fish and one veggie meal) and 3 puddings or cheese and biscuits. Portions were generous! With our package we also had wine and water included with the meal and free drinks between 7:30 and 10:30 pm. There was entertainment every evening which, I have to admit, was not to our taste, but there were many guests who seemed to enjoy it. However there was plenty of room at the bar area where there were comfy seats where you could sit and chat by a log fire.
There was wi-fi available but we did not discover this until the morning of our departure as it wasn't made that obvious; there again perhaps we should have just asked! All the staff were welcoming, pleasant and courteous.
All in all if you are looking for a pleasant stay in a traditional Scottish country hotel you will find it here.
