Very welcoming atmosphere from the Manager David Duncan and all his staff.
Slightly disapointed that our upgraded room was very small and a tiny bathroom with energy saving bulbs that took ages to warm up to see to get a shave! Think it was 'an upgrade' because it was at the front overlooking The Square where all the festivities are held at midnight, though we were in the street partying.
The food was excellent the only niggle being the vegetarian option at the Hogmanay dinner, basically just the vegetables for everyone else with a bit of puff pastry on top, other days the vegetarian options were good.
For a Bar that is slap bang in the middle of The Spey Whisky area I really do think that some decent whisky tumblers could be provided instead of the very cheap utilitarian thick glass ones that were used. I did manage to see an Glenfiddich branded glass on a bottom shelf and persuaded the barman to use it.
