2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The guest house is close to the town centre. However the member of staff on reception looked bored and beyond giving us a key and directions to the room did not say much else. The room and bathroom was clean. One of the bedsheets had want looked like a few dribbles of coffee on it from a previous occupant. It might have been stain-even so not good. There is no parking you have to use on street parking. Worse of all we were told the hotel provided a free breakfast when booking. This was a reason for choosing this one over another one. I received an email a few days before travelling advising that due to COVID restrictions there would be no breakfast. I find this difficult to believe they hotel management was not aware of this prior to me booking. I had booked a few weeks before travelling and COVID restrictions are in fact lessening at present not increasing. Overall a very disappointing hotel.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Pathetic, met by locked door when they eventually answered their phone was advised hotel was closed and had been for weeks but could get room in other hotel on other side of Dingwall. When I eventually found it room had absolutely no heating nor had corridors left hotel at 4am and slept in car as it was warmer. Total disgrace that they were still selling rooms on website is there no quality control or audit on properties advertised. Won’t be using again and will actively encourage others not to either.

Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
It is hard to judge as we are in the middle of Scotlands tough covid restrictions. Staff were helpful and friendly but not around often id guess due to covid. Clean, handy, well positioned and on a high street full of services and restaurants!
