Nice place. Our room was above the outdoor bar area, and a little noisy until mid-evening in fine weather.

This is our favourite hotel each time we visit Scotland from Australia. Always comfortable and clean. This time however we had our toilet leaking and the vanity sink blocking up. We did report this. This would not change our opinion of the hotel or stop us visiting again or recommending it to everyone. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Dark room

There are no room lights in these very convenient and comfortable rooms. Only bedside lamps. As it got dark at 4pm this is an issue for usability of the room.
