Wow those are a lot of patterns in one room. Our first thought as we entered the warm and welcoming 1st floor lounge... but you know what. It worked (but it may have been the lovely bottle of scotch we all sat around enjoying.
I start with this comment because the comfort level felt a bit like home (not so much the patterns :) ). The greeting was very pleasant and casual, the 'residence lounge' was comfortable, the staff answered YES to all questions (not often found).
Then we entered our room, and were we ever surprised. The room was massive, the beds were uber-comfortable and despite it being in the front of the building over the street (where a regular bus goes by) it was quiet.
The bathroom was large with a tub and a separate shower.
The whole room was clean, well maintained and bright.
The breakfast is served for only one hour in the morning (so plan your night accordingly) and is made to order. Including gluten free options (if you pre-warn them).
It is an easy walk to good restaurants, pubs and attractions (including the R & A golf course).
The bus either stops or slows to minimal as when it was time for bed, the traffic wasn't a bother.
A winning combination when staying in this special town.
