We had a great stay in May. I booked it for my husband's 30th and we were welcomed with some sparkling wine in the room. The room was great, clean and modern.
When our taxi didn't arrive to take us to Lagavulin the manager drove us...such a nice thing to do. we were so grateful.
The only disappointing thing was dinner on the Sunday night. Fresh food but lacked imagination. plus the service was awful. 3 hours to have dinner. Shame as it made us go to Bowmore for dinner the second night.
