    I liked the subtle revamp/modernisation of this spectacular, traditional, very old building. The last time I stayed here it was known as the Caledonian Hotel, although there were still the occasional cold, draughty spots to remind me of that. The heating bills must be huge! The staff at check-in, in the function room and the Caley Bar were very welcoming, and all good at their jobs. The location is superb too.
