a very nice hotel if not the most modern.it was about 20 miles from inverness with no shops etc so you were stuck there untill bus took you on the trips but want a problem with any one there at same time as me .everyone else on trip were friendly and people soon paired up for entertainment nights all mixed in with each other and shared tables etc happily and made some lasting friendships swapping adresses /numbers etc at end of trip. it was clean and beds and showers were as good as any other hotel i have been in.maybe a slight bit of a paintjob was needed in room but i was not bothered as david urquart tour prices are very good value and worth a try.food was good and plenty to eat with a nice choice all served by very pleasent staff and quickly seen to if you had a problem with meal or wanted more coffee /toast etc.entertainment was more geared to older people but i enjoyed the scotish night greatly and was let down by sixties /seventies night by a person who seemed drunk sang only 2 1970 s songs and spent more time playing shadows music which he said were his favourite.kept popping into kitchen area for no good reason and when he did his stupid puppet act was quite rude to people who didnt want to give their name and was almost shouting via the puppet.the people got up and moved further back the room away from him..some one also said they were sure he drove away from hotel after show and as he looked drunk it was a bit of a worry.
last night was a dreary sounding comedian with old jokes but again older people loved him and sang and danced along with him when he did his acordian music.i could face comedian and first night singer alan roy who was excelent but would stay in other lounge while haggis the puppet was there with someone who looked like he couldnt give a dam if you were entertained or not.trips were good though our full day in inverness was cut short by a trip first to a woollen mill /gift shop place and then we were back in hotel very early that day and i would have preffered the full day as promised in holiday advert.driver was pleasent enough and pointed out some bits of intrest etc. i would recomend you do not use toilet on bus as it stank badly even though he said it had a airfreshner in it.i was ill and still managed to note the foul smell in there.al in all a good value for money trip and i would recomend it and in fact i am going away with david urquart again in november to dunnoon trip and cant wait
