Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had a terrible time at this property! We got in late and the hotel had messed up our reservation. We had requested two queen beds since we had our teenage son with us and they gave us one King and one roll away bed. The plumbing was not working in the bathroom so we requested someone to fix it. They said since it was late, there was nothing that could be done. After much deliberation, we were moved to a room with two twin beds and a roll away. This was obviously a downgrade on our reservation for which we were not compensated. After another discussion with the manager on duty in the morning, they added complimentary breakfast. Due to all the commotion, we missed our planned tour to the Highlands that we were really looking forward to. When we got back in the evening, the hotel staff had moved our stuff without our consent! At least, the room was finally what we had originally paid for!! When we got to our new room, we realized our chargers were missing. We tried to talk to the hotel staff about this but the staff was dismissive and rude. We ended up having to threaten the staff for them to go check with lost and found to determine where our stuff was. All in all, it was a terrible experience. Some of the staff was trying to be helpful but without much success. I am never going back to this hotel ever.

Excellent staff especially in the bar! Breakfast room was lovely and the food very good. The King bed did not fit the room and therefore made for a cramped space.
