“better than expected!”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

After reading some terrible reviews about this hotel i was pleasantly suprised. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the room was clean and comfortable. The eveing meal was delicious and the staff didn't seem to mind too much that our party came into the restaurant nearly 30 mins late. I would have liked a hair dryer in the room but one was available from reception if i had needed one. Although i'm a toast and cereal girl, there looked to be a good selection of breakfast items at the serve yourself buffet. Would stay again.

My father and mother have been staying at this hotel for 20 - 25yrs, visiting with Royal Marine veterens to attend the annual Rememberence weekend. For the last three years, I have accompanied my dad, along with my wife, Brother and sister in law. The hotel is ideally situated for touring the Nevis region. We have always found the staff very welcoming, and willing to accomodate our requests. The breakfast is first class..all you can eat breakfast, consisting of diverse choice. Continental through to traditional colesteral busting Full Scottish. Tea and coffee and toast. The evening meals have always been first class.
The bedrooms (I have stayed in) are a little tired, in need of a makeover, but are comfortable, with ensuite facilities. Tea and coffee making in all rooms.
Overall the hotel would benifit from a make over, but is clean, comfortable with welcoming staff and good service throughout. The lunch bar to the rear provides excellent lunch time meals, but when busy, it's best to book to guarantee a table.

Room Tip: Hobsons choice. All rooms I've stayed in were adaquate, but in need of some TLC, as you may expe...

As we'd booked a very cheap late deal we didn't Know what to expect however the accommodation was of an excellent standard which seems to be the norm, the breakfast was buffet style was lots on offer the evening meal was freshly cooked to order and surpassed our expectations. All the staff were very friendly and couldn't be more helpful please clone them and place them in every hotel in Scotland many thanks for a wonderful stay and we hope to return sometime soon.

Room Tip: we were in room 126 which overlooks the quiet grassy seating area away from the main road

Just returned from another great stay. Very well looked after, staff pleasant and obliging.
Food is very good at both breakfast and evening meal. The half board tariff is good value, we book directly with the hotel, it is quick and easy.
Prime location, right in the town, ample parking. A comfortable relaxed atmosphere throughout the hotel . Already looking forward to our next visit!

Thouroughly enjoyed our 3 day break here. O.k. so some parts of the hotel need a little refurbishment but overall good. Superb eat all you like breakfast with everything you can imagine. Nice big rooms and nice big beds.

Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room.

Second visit to this hotel in 4 months. Here on business and found hotel staff to be friendly and helpful. I arrived early and reception went out of way moving rooms around to allocate room early for me. Also I left before Breakfast and they organised me a lovely packed lunch. Location is perfect, less than 5 minutes walk to the Bus and Train Station. Meals were very nice and good choice. Wifi was advertised as available in all public rooms but I found I had a reasonable connection on the second floor. Bedroom was very nicely set out and a good size. Bottles of water in the room were a nice touch. I booked direct with the Hotel on this occasion and got a good rate for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast.
