Great location in Northern Scotland
We stayed here before our next day trip to the Orkney Islands. Great location with an excellent friendly staff.

Not the best, not the worst.
Overall, not the worst night ever. Room was old, smelly and only could really get a certain level of clean. Price was right for the one night we needed to stay. Breakfast was fine, but busy and impersonal. A few of the hallways smelled so bad (maybe a spill on the old rugs that was never cleaned properly?) that we had to hold our breath walking through them. The staff was very friendly however, and the location was great in town. Limited parking spaces out back, but we were able to find one. Wifi worked alright. TV worked.

just lovely
A truly good night's rest with very helpful front desk. En suite was lovely with a full size tub which was great for a long hot soak. Internet speed really good. Bar food quite cheap tasting but adequate. Rosalind was very helpful in arranging transportation and suggestions of things to do in walking distance.

Should have stayed somewhere else
This hotel may have been royal once but it is ghetto now. No wifi in our room. Finding our room was literally like being a rat in a maze. When we finally did find our room, after winding hallways, down stairs, up stairs, thru squeaky doors and tight corners, we discovered a small, cramped, dirty, musty room with windows looking into the garbage bins! The sheets on the beds were stained as well! I pray they were stains and not the previous guests smudge marks! We will NOT be staying here again!
