My wife and mother-in-law and I stayed here for one night as part of our driving holiday around Scotland. We chose this hotel because of (a) its location and (b) the price. It's pretty much what you would expect from a Holiday Inn. The rooms are clean and well decorated but bland. The bathrooms are also clean but basic. Breakfast is a continental self-service, with plenty of choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and juice. Staff are friendly and reasonably efficient.
The hotel's location is very good, just a few minutes walk away from the Ocean Terminal and an excellent bus service into the city centre. Parking is good, and free!
All in all, it offers good value for money and clean spacious rooms.
