Very good 8.0
Staff excellent rooms good but generally the hotel needs updating and decorating as the public areas are tired and worn. Food at breakfast good but if you get there at the busy times the food and plates tend to be cold.

Overall very nice but some minor niggles
Overall this is a lovely hotel and I booked it as I had stayed here before. Fabulously comfy bed, great duvet and slept like a log. Food in Corries bar is well recommended, good quality, portion sizes and good value for money. However the downsides are trivial. I booked a superior room. With, as advertised premium TV channels. I got 7 channels. Even though in the bar there was Sky TV. This seems like misinformation. And same problem as last time I was here. Kids running riot in the bar with staff walking around with drinks and hot plates. Control your kids parents. This isnt a playground.

Good hotel, bad restaurant
No issues with the hotel, but service in the restaurant was awful. Waited 45mins to have order taken. And when the food did come it wasn’t great.
