When we saw all of these unbelievable comments we had to stay there! We must be odd balls as we rated the place at best very ordinary.(sorry)
We had booked three nights in the tartan room, on arrival we were given the "welcome" chat for an hour! we were then told we would be upgraded to the red room free of charge for the next two nights, we thought that was odd,( but I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth.) Our wonderful hosts showed us around the red room as the guest in there had gone out, (we felt a bit uneasy about that.)
The Tartan room was very nice, but had a couple of faults, first thing was the bathroom was built into a cupboard, it was very narrow, when you bent over the sink your posterior touched the double door, the toilet was very noisy and because my wife has limited mobility she could not get into the shower as the door would not open wide enough. The room temp. was very hot, we turned the radiators off, but it was still unbelievably hot, we had to force open a window and were not able to sleep because of it. The T.V. was difficult to watch from the bed as it was in a recess and facing the far wall, the gentleman staying in the red room returned, and we could hear him walking around, we could hear him coughing he sounded as if he was in our room, we turned the T.V. off and spoke in whispers, otherwise no problems, and we are not complaining as we are being upgraded!!
The next night we were in the fab "Red Room" it looked great, a very seductive area, there was a large flat screen T.V. loads of DVD's full unscrambled sky package, including the "Adult" channel. It seemed perfect, but there were a few minor problems, the first one was the sloping walls and ceiling are painted red, which results in you constantly bumping your head, as you loose your perception of depth. I see no one else mentioned this as a problem, so it must just be us.
There was a very ornate bed with decorative ropes hanging down on each side, A small room to the left of the bed contained a fridge with complimentary water, there was also some sort of automatic video recording equipment, probably something to do with the CCTV I would imagine.
There was a very nice double bath, sauna and shower. We too were advised not to go out and eat, but to stay in and enjoy an intimate evening with a takeaway Our wonderful hosts even gave us a free bottle of wine. Sounded very sexy and tempting but we declined. Even though there was no one staying in the room next to us we could hear movement and noises coming from there. The Red room too was extremely hot.
The breakfast menu was one of the best I've ever seen, the actual breakfast was very nice but very ordinary. We were extremely lucky at breakfast, as everyone normally sits around a large kitchen table - forcing small talk amongst total strangers - but there were no other guests, great.
If you are a very sociable person, and don't mind being overheard, like it very warm, and want the bed and breakfast experience this is the place for you. We left early, its not for us.
