The title probably sounds like a contradiction and it kind of is because this place is called a hotel but looks more like a bed and breakfast. As I do before booking anything I like to read customers reviews and I have to say that the descriptions and experiences where quite accurate, I am referring to all the positive ones of course.
This hotel is owned by an Asian family whom are very nice and accommodating. I only make mention of this because it is in Scotland where you do not see many foreigners owning businesses. They even offered to make us sandwiches and snacks to take on our train ride back to London; that was the nicest gesture I have ever experienced in all my years of traveling.
The rooms where spacious and that is a rarity in most places in UK or Europe, of course unless you have the money to pay for larger rooms. The beds where so comfortable and the showers where nice and clean. It is not located right in the center of town and the nearest train station was closed for renovations at the time but it was fine because taxi's are always available and everything is so close that it is inexpensive to take one.
I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again in the future; I felt right at home.
