We initially stayed here reluctantly as we could not find other stop-gap accommodation for a single night while awaiting entry to our holiday cottage. The hotel itself is pretty dated, the decor is worn and it appears uninspiring; however the welcome from the staff could not have been better. The room, while underwhelming in appearance, and looking out through french windows onto a wire dog run, complete with 4 collies and a sizable number of hens, boasted not only the usual tea and coffee, but a fridge and a toaster, a spacious, separate, seating area, 2 televisions, a DVD player and an interesting lockable double door giving access to the next door room where our children were. Following a rough ferry crossing the previous night, we slept late the next morning but we found nothing but helpfulness from the staff, who waited for us and cooked breakfast for all five of us after official breakfast closing time cheerfully and without complaint. Maybe not luxurious or externally impressive, but very adequate for our emergency stop-over, and completely redeemed by the helpful and friendly staff.
