Excellent Service
Staff was amazing. Everyone we meet went above and beyond from the moment we checked in. Only issues we had were with the WiFi in our room and power. Also the restaurant dinner menu is a bizarre Scottish fusion that seriously needs some rethinking. Would stay again for the service and eat out.

Excellent hotel
My daughter and I took a trip to Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Ireland, and this was our first hotel. From the outside it's beautiful, and the service is great. Some of the interior looks a little dated, but it was still charming. Our room was very clean, though it was very warm even with the heat turned off. We ended up opening the window which was nice. The only warning I'd give on the whole place is that there's no elevator. If you need one, you'll be out of luck. It's right across from a beautiful park and a quarter mile from a gas station and not far from some good places to eat. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Overall we really liked this hotel. We highly recommend this hotel.
