    Fair 4.0
    The rooms were not ready when we arrived at 3pm. No tea or milk in the room. Cold water stopped working in the middle of my shower. All in all not a good experience.

    A welcome respite when walking the highlands
    The Buchanan was a welcome respite while walking along the Ways; there seemed to be a goodly number of similar travelers. Good accomdations and good service in the bar.

    Poor 2.0
    Hotel lacks personal customer service no interaction or friendliness with guests. Wouldn’t recommend our room up in the gods needs a complete overhaul . Door has a big space carpet disgusting bathroom ceiling needs painted needsoverhauled & made homely I know it was booked through but I didn’t expect the worst rooms up in the attic. Was freezing asked for an extra duvet or blanket giving sheets??? Staff didn’t tell you anything about leisure facilities, breakfast times etc asked if I wanted to book dinner said no then pointed to stairs follow signs no personal service at all. Chairs in lounge need renewed or recovered. Not enough parking for guests. No personal service in dining room no explanation at breakfast that you can order stuff eg fried eggs . Cleaning up Lady in dining room was the only person that spoke & was lovely . Went to pay asked for bill. No service took £ & never asked how was your stay. Definitely needs training on customers service , interaction with guests & the so called entertainment when we got on at night was dreadful . Leisure facilities looked good didn’t get to try thank god I was only needing the place for a bed that night & not a relaxing wkend stay . Hotel could be public rooms lovely just needs that extra customer friendliness touches

    Good 6.0
    Great facilities
    The staff were great and very friendly throughout the hotel. The hotel itself was great with a sizeable pool, hot tub and steam room. The sauna wasn’t working but that didn’t affect the stay at all. The room itself was a little tired and in need of some decorating. The TV was very small but there were tea making facilities and good wardrobe space. Breakfast was ok but not the best I’ve experienced. Didn’t eat at the restaurant.
