They lost our booking

Pros: Charming village, delightful rustic building, nice garden friendly staff.
Cons: Their admin.
Location: It was 20 minutes drive from Edinburgh which was terrific as it was Fringe Festival time. There was a handy bus stop across the road.
Lovely staff on duty were mortified when they discovered they had no knowledge of our booking or Wotif. They rang their manager who also claimed to know nothing, but who was apparently the one to does the computery things. It would seem he hadn't let his staff know about our booking which had been confirmed with the hotel by Wotif. The staff on duty did give us the name of an alternative hotel a few miles away which we ended up staying at for twice the cost of our original accommodation. Basically it was a disaster and lucky it was not late at night, we had a car so we could get to another place and the hotel was not isolated. Had any of those things been the case we would have been a real difficulties. We loved the look of the hotel and when we arrived we were absolutely delighted, so we were dreadfully disappointed when it emerged that our reservation had been overlooked. Wotif refunded the full amount we had paid for the room within 24 hours, and appear to have done everything correctly from their end. I did not see the room so I can't really comment on cleanliness or comfort. The public areas of the hotel itself was clean however.

Clean, comfortable, nice restaurant downstairs

Comfortable to, quick and easy check in and friendly staff. Only downside was my booking was charged at a higher rate and the host said the booking provider had got the rate wrong, he gave me the difference but didn't want to!
