We stayed one night, in single rooms of varying quality. While the room was basic, the staff were very helpful and breakfast was good. It is a great stopover hotel as it is close to the ferry but the prospect of a longer stay in those rooms would not be good. The hotel could do with some TLC to bring... More

We only stayed for one night which was on a dinner bed and breakfast rate - this was a little over £100 for a twin room which seemed reasonable when booking. While the bedroom was ok the en-suite bathroom left a lot to be desired. The window curtains were covered in mildew because they got soaked when you used the... More

This wasn't our first choice, but every other Hotel was booked. This is a tour bus hotel. It's basic, but clean. It's fine if you are on a budget, otherwise I wouldn't recommend it. It is close to the ferry.

Having just returned from a coach tour staying at this hotel for the over 55's, I was given a room on the ground floor and a fellow pax who was disabled was given a room on the third floor, the hotel should have been more organised as they would have been notified via the tour company about his requirements due...

We initially booked two nights in this hotel but, before arrival, changed the booking to one night. Very glad we did. The room was itself was satisfactory but not very clean. We found a previous guest's dirty t-shirt in the wardrobe with the spare blanket and the bathroom needed a good scrub, especially the sticky shower. Upon arrival at breakfast... More

Stayed at this hotel overnight on a tour of Scotland. Staff friendly and welcoming. Hotel tired and looking its age. Cater for coach parties. Cant comment on food as didnt eat, but the menu was not inspiring. Wifi only available downstairs. Its tired. OK for an overnight stay as it had a bed and bathroom, all you need really. Would...

Staff helpful on reception. Perfect location but in desperate need of major TLC. No lift and had to help a couple older than us with bags to third floor. All floor boards creaked. Expensive for 2 nights. Internet only available in Public area which was not helpful. Since we last stayed five years ago Hotel has not improved.

We booked into the Caledonian Hotel for one night after arriving back on the ferry from the islands. One night was plenty. The reception staff were very friendly and were the best part of our stay at this hotel. The hotel is huge and whoever owns it obviously cannot afford or won't make the effort to maintain it which is... More
