6/10 Good

Beds too small, not a double!
Hotel was initially impressive, standing overlooking the harbour. Warm welcome, and a small, compact room. However, when we looked more closely at the bed realised that it was tiny, certainly not a ‘double’ as we would know it. Hotel later confirmed it’s a ‘European’ double. No other rooms available so no upgrade. Not happy with description on website. Also, at 5am the night porter was out at the coal pile with a shovel getting supplies in for the day. At 5am!! Told receptionist, who promised to deal with it, but the same thing happened the following morning. Not on our 3rd morning, but apparently it was a different night porter. Maybe one with a brain? Would we stay again? Probably not, as the size of the bed was a real issue.

8/10 Very good

Hotel is in a great location, staff friendly and helpful but could do with more than one member of staff on the bar on a Friday night as it was busy. But that is only a small issue, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Highland escape
Beautiful hotel is a lovely little village, stunning beach to have a walk on & a perfect base for exploring. Staff were very friendly & welcoming & nothing was too much for them. Food was excellent quality and beautifully presented. Rooms were very nicely decorated & comfortable. Would recommend a visit as great value.
