The hotel obviously caters mainly for oil workers. I went with the family over the bank holiday weekend and there were still predominantly single men there, for some reason.
The hotel has a leisure pool which isn't particularly useful for swimming in but fine if you've got young kids. Strangely, they have some rooms which look directly on to the pool. The pool area also has a Jacuzzi and there's also a small gym and sauna.
The breakfast was great. It's buffet, but they have the full spread, toast, butteries, cereal, sausages, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, fruit juice, coffee/tea, cakes, muffins etc.
We ate in the bar, and the food wasn't great and was expensive for what it was. The beer was reasonably priced, however.
They have free wifi in the public areas nowadays, although this should be offered for a much cheaper price in the room.
Our room was large with 2 double beds and plenty of space. It was very comfortable with air con/heating which was fine. Room was slightly dated but still in pretty good condition. Room had free coffee/tea and biscuits, a safe and a tv with plenty of channels. Walls were thin as noted by other reviewers.
Staff were friendly. Seemed to be predominantly Scandanavian rather than Scottish for some reason.
