We stayed 4 nights in the hotel. It was far our most expensive hotel.
Good was the very big and quiet room to the back, also with a nice seaview. Newly renovated everything is well in shape with
very nice bathroom and very large and comfortable beds too.
The bar was very well equipped with the finest scotsh whiskies and with coffee speciallities.
A lot of improvement needs the breakfast and the traininglevel of some staff in the restaurant. For a hotel of this price category we expecteted much more quality in service. The breakfast was without any fresh fruits and we saw the typical scottish breakfast in a much better qualty in far more simple B&Bs.
All in all it was not really worth that amount of money for us.
