2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The location was excellent overlooking Neptune’s Steps and with beautiful weather we were able to sit on the deck with a view of Ben Nevis. We were disappointed with the contactless check-in, it was a faceless experience which then spread throughout our stay. Although the staff we encountered were on the whole very friendly and helpful there was a distinct lack of leadership and an obvious shortage of staff. We understand that because of the pandemic there have to be changes to the usual practices but that doesn’t really explain why we had to ask for extra toilet rolls (one for a four day stay was never going to be enough). We also had to ask for clean towels and empty our own bin because the rooms weren’t made up daily - which we would expect for a so-called 4 star hotel. Again, the pandemic may be an excuse but surely cleanliness can be maintained with careful planning. When we asked staff why our towels hadn’t been changed they said that we should have been made aware at check-in that rooms weren’t going to be made up but of course it was contactless so we weren’t told. When we complained to a member of staff about how ridiculous it was that we had to ask for toilet roll she was very apologetic. She explained that the hotel had changed hands a couple of years ago and the property was now run by a management company - which may explain why it felt lacking in atmosphere and warmth.

We stayed at this hotel twice on our trip round Scotland. The 2nd time was better than the 1st, mainly because the room better dodgy water pressure 1st time round. Staff were pretty good, food was fine. Bit pricey and I'm not really sure how it can be a 4 star hotel. Suited our needs you get a good view of Ben Nevis on a clear day.

Excellent location, very good staff specialty young lady Prachi. Plenty of parking. Very good Bistro. Good room size and baths. Quick response to any requests. To go to some rooms, you may have to pass through staircases and a series of corridors that are not situated at same level. That to us was a minor issue.
