Beautiful Hotel
Beautiful hotel right next to the water, friendly staff who could not do enough to make your stay pleasant. My only critisism would be the amount of stairs we had to lug our suitcases up

Awful experience. Despite being advertised and booked with parking for our 3 rooms there is only 2 accessible spaces and 2 EV spaces. The receptionist was unapologetic. We had to park in the public car park a 5 min walk away. When we asked to book dinner after checking in (and walking back from the car park) we were advised the restaurant was full that evening. Tried to book breakfast for the following morning but only limited late availability so couldn’t. We wanted to use the sauna and spa but as it was only available if booked and the weekend we were there was fully booked we weren’t able to. Not to mention the tiny room and ridiculously low water pressures, it was a truly appalling stay. At over £200 per room per night that is totally unacceptable.

Amazing hotel!
We booked the hotel to finish off a camping tour of Scotland with a bit of luxury and we were not disappointed! The place looks amazing and location wise is perfect, you get a great view of the bay and with the weather we’ve had the sunset was amazing. We booked the Spa day as well which was really good, the hot tub facilities were amazing and again overlooked the bay. Most importantly I have to say a massive thank you to Dana who was majorly helpful in a bit of a secret mission I had to get a certain ring from a jewellers in Leeds up to the hotel last minute which lets just say made my future wife extremely happy later on! Thank you!
