It is difficult for me to give this hotel only four stars. We know the place for 15 years and we stayed here three times in the past. Even more we enjoyed the restaurant which is one of the best on the West Coast.
The place is still excellent. It is full of character, the people are very friendly. Clean, nicely scented, warm and, of cause, perfectly located for one day trips either to Skye, Applecross, Eilean Donan or just excellent nature right around Plockton. The views from the rooms and the promenade in front of the hotel are one of the jewels of Scotland.
Why we give it a 'four' is because this time we felt some tension in people which we could not explain but which endangers homely atmosphere which made this place so SPECIAL. This is probably the other side of success - it has become a bit too crowded, bit too busy, there is less personal attention and some 'rituals' we enjoyed so much, like daily update of the menu blackboard, are dropped.
