2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Cold clinical room but not so clean
We had to ring the bell 3 times before entry and the whole hotel was in need of an upgrade the wooden toilet seat was split the curtains hanging from rail. The tv was in front of the dresser mirror instead of hung on the wall.the room was cold in evening as no heating on I went and knocked door but no reply . Though there was heating in hallway. I personally think it needs a woman’s touch as no pictures in room or anything to give it warmth, also one of the decorative cushion was split all down one side. We had to leave after one night, we were sent a voucher to go back but never would. Very disappointed ☹️

We loved our stay at Fraoch House. Matthew was the perfect host he contacted me prior to our stay to everything would be perfect for our arrival. The room was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The location was ideal and the breakfast was outstanding. We'd definitely stay again.

Brilliant stay at Fraoch House
Greeted by Matthew with offer of tea or coffee on arrival. All staff were really helpful & friendly. The room (standard double) was spacious & clean, bed & pillows very comfortable, shower hot & reliable. Breakfast was great, cereal, yogurts, fruit cruets, croissants & a choice of hot meals including full Scottish, all very tasty. Will be back again!
