Cheap'n'Cheerful - Don't Expect The Ritz !!
Posted Jul 27, 2015
Firstly, this hotel is advertised as being in High Street, Dingwall - it is not !! It is in fact in High Street, Conon Bridge some 5 miles away from Dingwall. When we were there there was a school reunion for ex pupils of the local High School circa 1984, which was highly appropriate as 1984 appears to be around the last time the hotel saw any care and maintenance. A whole host of issues regarding the fabric of the place, none of which would be hard to put right but I doubt they ever will. On the plus side the staff were friendly and helpful, the exception being the rather bemusing chef, whose input only served to us utilising the nearby chinese takeaway (recommended). Breakfast is strictly 0830-0930, if you have any dithering teenagers in your group please make sure they don't appear at 0935 'cos they ain't getting fed !!! The breakfast cook ups and leaves at 0930 promt. Despite everything I still felt relaxed (probably because I've actually stayed in much worse), and the bar prices were reasonable.
