    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

    The location of the property was good for our Celtic Colours venues and is right next door to the Highlands Historical Village. However, the staff were not super friendly or particularly helpful. It was almost as if the summer tourist rush was over and they were done with being nice until next year.
