Apart from being in a fairly isolated location and having no lounge to relax in, Gailes does have some positive features. Unfortunately these are all cancelled out by the hotel's failure to meet the basic function of any hotel: the provision of a good night's sleep. I was unlucky enough to have been allocated room 23.

Attended a friends wedding and from start to finish it was excellent. All the staff were happy friendly and eager to help. The Lagavalin suite was ideal and the standard of food was great. Can't thank the staff enough for making it such an amazing day.

Very large room with huge comfortable bed and bathroom with bath and shower over. Always very clean, and surprisingly quiet, even when a function on. Best part, the really friendly staff who could not be more pleasant and helpful, makes it a superb home away from home. Dinner in the hotel, the food was excellent with a varied menu with... More

Stayed overnight at a wedding function. The function suite facilities were well appointed and modern. The meal was good and the bar well staffed. The accommodation was nice and comfortable but the stand out feature was the friendly staff who were really pleasant and helpful.
