Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The facilities were very good. However there were two large functions in the fully booked hotel and only one member of staff on reception. She did a Stirling job but really needed some assistance. Also there was no signage to our function room.

Pleasant hotel close to local facilities. We had a room on the top floor where there is only stairs access. Not a problem for me but could be a struggle for those “less able” and would need assistance carrying bags or cases. I’m sure the hotel staff would oblige.
