I have to say that the hotel and location look different on the internet. Location-wise the hotel seemed on a remote hill outside Dingwall while it was situated next to ordinary houses in an ordinary neighborhood of Dingwall. On our way in things started feeling better as the reception gives the feeling of an old castle (which presumably it is) and the staff were really nice and welcoming. However, our double bedroom was over-priced at €120/night compared to a castle hotel of the same Oxford chain of hotels (Stonefield Castle) where we stayed for €80/night and had a much much better experience (both 3-star hotels). Needless to say that in Edinburgh we stayed at a boutique 5-star hotel for €108 per night. Moreover, the pillow cases were worn out and the blanket was a disgusting rug that we took off when we saw it (when told the hotel staff replied that these are their standard blankets - changed it with a much better duvet). We also had issues with flushing the toilet as it took over 5 minutes to fill up after each use (we were told that this is because the hotel is old - been to other old hotels and this was not the case!!). Again, in comparison with other hotels we stayed at throughout our Scotland road trip the room only had one little shampoo for two people, one little bath gel and one little soap! Also, when I walked in the bathroom the first time there was hair from the previous person on the tiles in the bathtub. As for breakfast, for €120/night very poor...just Scottish cooked breakfast, cerial, jams and a couple of juices. That's all...Oh, and charged €10/day for internet access (free everywhere else we went to). All in all, NOT recommended.
