If I had to write this review after the first 10 minutes at the Waverley Castle I would have been telling it very differently. The woman on reception was grumpy and obviously didn't want to be there. The room that we were allocated was cold and had a damp patch on the wall. When we plucked up the courage to go back to see the reception lady we were told immediately that there were no other rooms available. However when my wife explained that I have lung cancer and can't tolerate the damp she did somehow manage to find one. This is when our stay changed. The second room was much warmer and dry. We didn't see the grumpy woman again and all the members of the staff that we encountered after that were very pleasant. The dining room was pleasant and the food was ok with a decent choice of meals. The location is good. To sum up, After the first half hour we had a pleasant stay and decent value for the price we payed.
