I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip in April 2014. From the outside the building oozes Victorian character and conjures up images of Queen Vic, John Brown and haggis hunts in the heather; just what many people come to Scotland for, as it's generally not to get a sun tan. The warm open fire inside the reception area is a great start to the interior and reception area and the leather seats make a great spot to use the Wifi in comfort. It is obvious there have been many periods of renovations throughout the history of the building, but many look completely out of place with the Victorian building.
Some of the carpets in the heavy-traffic areas, stairs and corridors, do look pretty threadbare and could do with being replaced. Likewise, some of the paint in the public areas could do with a refresh. The room I was in was clean and comfortable, although the tv looked to be from the 1980's and I couldn't get it to work. The shower blasted out lots of hot water at high pressure and was a delight to use after a long day.
At breakfast, after a bit of a wait for any waiting staff to appear, I had asked for French toast. Not a complicated thing to make or requiring any more ingredients that would be available to anyone cooking the first meal of the day in a hotel. I was told, after some time waiting for a reply, which the chef wasn't prepared to make this. Had the dining area been thronging with starving people from every room the hotel, I would have appreciated the breakfast staff may have been a bit stretched and so I wouldn't have asked, but, as there were precisely 8 people in the room, including myself, I had hoped the hotel was a little less stuck in the attitudes of Scottish hotel of yesteryear. Apparently not. On the plus side, the orange juice was pretty palatable. The second morning I didn't even bother going in for breakfast as I had bough my own oranje juice.
