Disliked: Amenities
This hotel Braeval did not seem to exist. It is now called the Bandstand restaurant. The room I booked was a double, when I got there I was given 2 singles. The room was very small and the bathroom had a sewerage smell about it. I ordered breakfast with I said eggs and toast. I got 1 egg and a small piece of toast. Later in the day I checked my credit card and they have charged me twice so I phoned up and the reply was the manager is too busy to speak. Please avoid this hotel. I stay in hotels on average 3 times a week this has got to be among the worst
