we booked this hotel for somewhere to stay for my brothers wedding for 3 nights,not having ever been up that end of the woods we had to trust the website,after travelling 280 miles we arrived in the lovely but very quiet village,our pub/hotel overlooking the harbour looked run down and desperate in need of some work,not the bright white pristine exterior it shows on website,we checked in and were given our keys and were left to drag our cases up narrow staircase and corridors to room 23,we walked in and my stomach turned,tiny,shabby,dirty,ancient,wallpaper missing round the door,creaky floor etc,i opened the 1960s curtains to look at the view and found we overlooked a side street,i then went into the bathroom,oh my god! pink pre 1960 cracked sink and shower,dirty mouldy mastic and tiles and an electric shower which was absolutely useless,but they had installed a fairly recent toilet but you could see where the old systern had been as they hadnt bothered decorating,infact they hadnt bothered anywhere for 50 yrs,my partner said i cant stay here its disgusting for 60 pound a night so we asked for a harbour view,the woman on reception said they had one but they wanted 100 pound a night,i said no way!!! the breakfast is ok and breakfast staff are friendly but i would avoid it at all costs,my sister stayed in a b and b down road called the dunnivaig and said it was lovely and clean,ive seen the pics and it is.also there is a new hotel 50 yds down road which is being built at the moment and it look superb. anyway rant over,youve been warned,it wants shutting down!!!!
