We recently booked a one night stay at this establishment for ourselves and our 10 year old son. Prior to arriving, we were advised that he would be sleeping on a sofa bed in our room which was absolutely fine. I appreciated being warned about this in advance. Upon arrival, the welcome was very warm and friendly and the room spotlessly clean as was the en-suite. All fine so far. However, the room was far too small for us because by setting up the sofa bed, we could not walk around our own bed. This made the use of the wardrobe redundant as it was on the other side of the room and also meant that we had to climb over the bed either to get in or out of bed or worse, climb over one another to get to the bathroom during the night. Neither of which we found acceptable. Also, we were only given one pillow each when we believed there should have been two or at least, there should have been additional pillows available in the room if we needed them. The room was located on the second (attic) floor and as such, you had to bend over to reach the tea/coffee and more than once, we banged our heads. At breakfast, the hostess was very friendly and again, everything was spotlessly clean but the breakfast was less than filling. As I don't eat beans, my cooked breakfast consisted of only one sausage, one piece of bacon, one egg and a triangle of tattie scone. Nothing more. In fairness, there was fresh yoghurt to eat as well as bananas and apples on offer plus cereal AND we were offered more coffee or toast. However, with neither tomatoes, mushrooms or black pudding on the plate, I believe the breakfast should have been much more substantial with at least two sausages and two rashers of bacon plus the egg and beans or tattie scone we were given. It was by far, the smallest cooked breakfast we have ever had and as such, will not be returning unless they reconsider the portions and the size of the 'family' room. The room cost £105 for one night which on reflection, was far too much for the squashed surroundings and disappointment we experienced at breakfast time. We cannot however, fault the quality of cleanlieness or the hostess's warm welcome.
