Good 6.0
Room was far too small as were the sink and toilet facilities. The stairs were very steep (no lift).
Graham, gb4 night trip
Poor 2.0
Poor value for money small room in comparision same priced hotels in the area. One cannot get changed in bathroom converted cupboard as to small would not recommend for more than one night as no space for lugguage and few coat hangers as no hanging space for clothes. Staff were friendly enough and was a clean room although overall left dissapointed and would not recommend to others.

Great stay at the Whisky Vaults
Our stay at the Whisky Vaults was fantastic Shame we only had the one night The owners were very friendly from carrying our bag up to our room to making recommendations for meals locally They had made a lot of effort with the room from the extra large towels to the fully stocked coffee tea plus hot chocolate & a selection of biscuits Breakfast was buffett but a large variety of food A very high standard overall for a very reasonable price definitely stay there again & would recommend it to friends

Lovely hotel with excellent staff. The local area is limited for things to do, but a good stepping stone for exploring the surrounding areas.
