This was a nice hotel. Received a very nice friendly welcome from the young man who showed us our room. We were supposed to get 2 rooms together, but our son was in a room a the far end of the hall from us, which made it difficult sharing electrical hookups. Also he had no trouble with getting hot water or with noisy plumbing. But we were startled when flushing the toilet in our room to hear a cannon like boom! Also when running water into the sink or bath. It kept booming. I actually jumped up from the desk when I first heard it, and looked out the window thinking someone was shooting outside or there was an explosion of some kind! Tried not to use the bathroom during the night for fear of disturbing anyone. Also, we didn't get hot water in our room until just before we checked out the next morning, and then it was too late to take a shower or bath. The older man behind the bar in the morning when we checked out said it is an older hotel and takes a long time for water to get to our room, and he explained about the noise when flushing or running water.. We had a very good dinner in the hotel restaurant. Also, the Scottish breakfast in the morning was amazing, as were the friendly lady who served us and the cook when we complimented the breakfast. It is a charming hotel, convenient location, and free parking in a lot across the street, lovely flowers outside. I would book there again, though would ask for the room our son had so we could get hot water.
