    nice hotel

    Stayed 1 night as a rest stop on our way to Scottish highlands and found this place to be very comfortable. Very nice modern decor, good quality comfy bed, good shower pressure and able to adjust thermostat yourself to desired room temp. Breakfast was a grab and go system because of Covid but plenty of choice which we ate in our room. There is a large shopping centre opposite should you require and honestly could not fault this place
