Good location right on the harbour. Swimming pool was enjoyable but hot tub not too hot and hard to enter for short person. Room dreary but was comfortable. Staff was very nice and gave me good advice on a walk away from the town. Breakfast was good and the view overlooking the water lovely. Easy walk either to town or... More

Quite simply the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Extremely poor value for the amount charged. You enter through a dingy reception area that looks like it came out of the 1970s, the furniture in the rooms needs ripped out replaced from scratch. For maybe half the price paid it would be acceptable, for one night, at a push, but... More

This hotel is a bit run down. The TV only has BBC 1 available with interference on sound. Very old fashioned furnishings. It really could do with a bit of investment. Good location and great views but the rooms badly needs modernised.

Most of the staff are wonderful and helpful and can easily multi task. There is however one lady, about 50, dark hair and works evenings who gets so stressed and makes you feel a burden by giving her one task. Owners please tell her to calm down and be helpful.

(TV, Coffee etc, shower) This is not a Luxury Hotel but it has a lovely pool (most welcome for us) and it is situated overlooking... More

A lovely location, but how they justify £81 is beyond me. It was horrible! Dirty sticky carpets, the stuffing was coming out of the chairs in the lounge. Seriously run down and in need of a revamp. On the plus side the staff were friendly.

Right on the seafront with wonderful views from the breakfast room, the lounge and some of the bedrooms. We had a room without a view which I regret. Very welcoming reception staff and very pleasant breakfast staff serving a well-cooked full Scottish breakfast. They all loved our dog. (not allowed in the breakfast room). Great views of the bay with... More
