The room was big, comfortable and warm. Plenty room for Dogs travel kennel. Looked like bathroom recently refurbished. Dinner and breakfast was very tasty. Its like a 80's style Motel but had a...

The Hotel is vast with good ground and surrounding area. The rooms are also very nice and large But the bathrooms played spoilsport. The basin was inconvenient and so was the shower.Definitely no thought given to tall and heavier people.A good scope to injure oneself in the limited space. Vegetarians are in for trouble as not many or "only one'... More

We had a two night stay at the end of November, through an 'Itison' deal and we were pleasantly surprised, we were not expecting five star luxury and yes the Highlander hotel does look a little tired and dated, but this was more than made up by the staff, which were all very friendly and helpful.

We're just back from a 2-night stay (Sat-Mon) at the Highlander. It was a 5pm Big Deal (£99 total bill) & weren't sure what to expect. Firstly, we would wholeheartedly agree with the other reviewers about the warm welcome & excellent customer service. Every single interaction with every staff member was friendly & polite; we could not fault them. It's... More

Stayed for two nights in a generous clean, comfortable room, with a cosy kingsized bed and a lovely hot shower. Meals were excellent and easily adapted to my mostly vegan diet. The most impressive part of our stay, however , was the helpful, friendly and attentive staff, who's attention to detail and welcoming manor will ensure a return visit. Thank... More
