Stayed at The Glen Hotel recently in Newtonmore a small but rather delightful village. Our room (no. 9) was pretty standard pub type accommodation - basic furniture but comfortable beds and chairs. The worst aspect was that the room stank of smoke. (It may be a non smoking establishment now, but if it wasn't in the past there'll be a tonne of fumes trapped in the carpet and furnishings which won't disappear with open windows and a gallon of air freshener). Also, our bathroom, pink, (very 1970s) only had an ancient hose type shower unit from the bath taps making it impossible to get and then maintain the right water temperature. Fortunately we were able to tip toe along to our son's room to use his moderately modern shower, otherwise we'd have been forced to 'paddle' in the bidet! Loo was very reluctant to flush! Ate in the pub in the evening which was fine. Suspect owner is working is way round the rooms doing them up in which case please give priority to bathroom in Room 9 - the lino alone is enough to give anyone a migraine!
