My partner and I stayed at this hotel one night before getting the ferry back to the mainland the next morning. We just happened upon the place on the high street, and thought we'd have a look. My first impression of the place upon walking on to reception was 'This is posh - its going to cost a fortune' - and what with being of vaguely limited means, thought it might be too much. It wasn't - £85 for a double room.
Reception were very helpful and pleasant, although a bit more of a direction to the car park would have been helpful. May I suggest a little map to show how to get to it?
The room itself was MASSIVE! We could have lived in it! Comfy bed, nice comfy chairs and an OK view. One thing however, the room was clean but maybe a little detail attention could be drawn to the decoration a little. A few scratches and bangs here and there were evident. Not a major concern, but it would make it a 5 out of 5 from me.
Breakfast was nice, served well - and with a vast time window to have it in.
I would recommend this hotel as a good place to stay, and if I'm over that way again - I'll be back!
One more thing, I was told the wifi would only work in a couple of areas of the hotel downstairs. It doesn't ONLY work there - I managed to get it in my room, :-)
