  • 6.0.Good

    The room was certainly not as pictured. It was small, dark and souless but the bed was comfortable. The biggest disappointment was breakfast which due to Covud was served on a pre prepared tray and consisted of packaged cornflakes, and a dry croissant. The tray did not even provide drinks, we had to use the packets of tea, coffee and milk already in the room. Very poor.

    A friendly welcome and no problem to store our mountain bikes Hotel was good but the breakfast was not up to standard Only choice of cereal was cornflakes or porridge,a very small orange or apple juice and a blueberry muffin or a small croissant Would advise not booking the breakfast and just going out locally where you are getting much better value for money

    Comfortable stay.

    Well equipped room and comfortable bed. Continental breakfast was pre-ordered and brought to our room in the morning. Hotel is only a few minutes from the Main Street where there are lots of places to eat. Would recommend booking a restaurant as lots were busy when we were there. Only a few minutes drive to the ferry terminal to catch to ferry to Mull.

    Very small room and tight bathroom. No lift either and we were on third floor. Not good value for money

    Decent Short Stay Hotel

    As some restrictions due to COVID were in place during our stay there were aspects of the hotels hospitality we didn’t experience. Out with this we found our room clean and comfortable and suitable for a short stay. Staff were helpful although we only had need to interact with them at check in/out and to take delivery of our breakfast in our room (no restaurant or bar at this time). Overall a nice, if basic, hotel suitable for a one or two night stay at most. I’d use it again in such circumstances.
