A Royal upgrade in Tain
I believe I got an upgrade to a very large room with a four poster bed.

Ok but nothing more!
Pictures missing off wall but hook and dusk marks still there. Carpet very dirty. Small menu choice with some items expensive compared the rest of the local market.
Ken, gb1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Sad to leave such a poor review
On arrival the Hotel looked pleasant enough . A beautiful building . Architecturally pleasing and old worldly . But the rooms are very dated and tired . The bath panel cracked and loose and scruffy . One distinctly off putting sight of 2 clean water glasses sitting 6-8 inches off the floor on top of a tiled shelf of boxed in pipework just to the side of the hand basin was a no no for me . Hygiene issue screaming at me everywhere in there . The dressing / vanity table had the tv on top in front of the mirror rendering it useless with the kettle right next to it which seemed for me an unsafe location ( I mean there was literally 4/5 inches from tv to kettle jammed in the corner on a short lead which meant I pulled the tv out of the way to use the kettle , then pulled it back but in front of the kettle donthat we could see it from the bed ! The pillows on the bed were so flat with age that you could fold them in half like a towel and when I respectfully stripped the bed in the morning the continental quilt was dirty and old too . It was disappointing as it looked lovey online . It certainly lacks a little bit of love and attention. The staff were very pleasant and the food was surprisingly good when we went for our meal . Breakfast was equally as good . I wouldn’t stay again ,

Needs some TLC
The staff were good the breakfast was good but the hotel needs a massive refurbishment. We were in room 24 the bath panel was broken, there was mould on the wall of the bathroom. The curtains to the windows do not fit, and the pillows for the bed were the worst quality pillows we have ever had. The entrance to the hotel was full of cigarette ends and the door and entrance need some repair. There is no lift in the hotel we were on the third floor.
Robert, gb2 night trip
Fair 4.0
Poor conditions
The carpet was extremely stained. The mattress on the bed was missing springs and therefore uncomfortable. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was good. The cleanliness of the room was again poor.
