Stayed here for 2 nights in October and had a really wonderful break. Our room was perfect - easily the best room I have stayed in and we were in the gold suite (the platinum suite must be exceptional!). Filter coffee in the room was a nice extra as I hate instant!
The breakfast was absolutely gorgeous, again, one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had. I also had the scallop starter one night, which was also really delicious. Walking distance to distilleries (important for us non drivers) and it was also easy to get to on the bus. Really great bar, with an ridiculously large choice of malts! My only criticism was the whisky seemed expensive compared to Edinburgh pubs - but I guess Island life adds an expense.
All in all we felt totally spoiled by our break, and the voucher was really excellent value - thanks!
