Just returned from a 2 night break at this Hotel. First impressions, very nice indeed. In fact, Thought about booking up for Hogmany/New Year. But have re-thought that one. Love the place, love the area, which is the main attraction, but found the biggest draw-back is lack of television. If you cannot retire to you room later in the evening to at least watch the news, you have no choice but to sit in the bar & drink. After having a drink - or 2, & I mean only 2, you dare not drink & drive, even in the Highlands. So, like it or not, you are somewhat of a prisoner. Whilst it's a nice place to be a prisoner, it turns out to be a very expensive cell. A very nice cell mind, but alas, no TV. Good bar meals, reasonably priced, but main restaraunt charges 40 pounds for a 3 course meal plus drinks, so can turn out quite expensive.
Don't think we will re-visit, which is a shame, but being cut-off from the rest of the world doesn't appeal to me.
