The Highlander was clean, comfy, and warm. I arrived after hours but had no difficulty in accessing the room. The internet worked great and the room was way nicer than what I paid for.

Fantastic shower. Clean room with mini kitchen and basic crockery and cutlery- all that you need. People in neighboring room started talking loudly at 6am and noise came through the wall. Otherwise a great stay.

We booked a motel room and were upgraded, which was nice. Unfortunately the upgrade was to an apartment which was not serviced during our two night stay. If I’d been aware the room would not be serviced then I would have refused the upgrade.
