  • Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Isle of skye

We felt like we were ignored , compared to other guests. Maybe this was because we had a young baby? Room was comfy but no view. The only special mention was to the lady on reception who was brunette with glasses (sorry didn’t know her name) and nothing was too much trouble and really friendly

Stayed 2 nights in Oct 2019


  • Disliked: Staff & service
Rude bar man . !!!!

Staff were generally friendly and welcoming, however the man in the bar was rude and unfriendly- not one smile all evening and no certainly no conversation ! The girl on reception seemed “too busy “ to listen to residents requests etc,.. the girl in the bar on our 2nd nights stay was lovely ! Fun, attentive , smiling and great people skills ! Overall , we had a reasonable stay, but would not return. Windows would not open and paintwork was peeling . Needs some TLC.

    • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
    Ok stay, would not choose again

    We chose this hotel based on price and what seemed like a good location. We were disappointed in how far we actually were from any attractions or good restaurant options. The service here was not stellar either. We were not with a tour group and felt like all of the hotel resources were dedicated to catering to the tour groups there. The rooms are old and need some updating.
