Like something out of 'fawlty towers'; old fashioned, tired, dusty, run down and dodgy electrics. We booked the family room for 4 family members. At 200 pounds a night this is not a room I would like to have small kids stay at with the open junction electricity box. No hot water first thing, although when I complained it was sorted, just meant I had to wait till after breakfast to shower. Ran out of fresh coffee at breakfast and as it was approaching 9 am, they were not prepared to place a new pot on, instead I was offered an instant sachet and hot water. This had a 3 star Scottish tourist rating advertised on the wall, when was this awarded? Has anyone looked lately? Vastly overpriced. There was Germans, English and Spanish customers in the hotel, I cringe at what their thoughts must have been especially if this was there first time in Scotland. Only advantage was the free parking outside the hotel, so we could jump on the bus outside to reach the city.
