Not a very accessible hotel with many stairs before even reaching the elevator. Staff very accommodating and helpful but it is obvious that there was a shortage of help with staff trying to do their best with an overwhelming influx of guests.

Overall the hotel is comfortable, well maintained and has the spa services as a bonus. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They managed to sort out an issue with my original room quickly. Food in the restaurant was very good. Nice touches in the room were some local Scottish treats - Tunnock's tea cakes. They're obviously having issues with housekeeping as room cleaning was either late in the day and awkwardly came when I was back in the room changing or too early while I was still in bed. The room service tray from a previous night was not cleared away at all. And the second room I was in had no tea, milk cups etc, but did have a great pod coffee machine so I ended up making coffee in a glass. I had to request cups the next day even after housekeeping had been in. I'd have liked an option not to have the towels replaced every day, to save resources but there was no way to say that. Great stay, let down by some small issues.

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.
