    We were very happy with the room, comfortable, warm, clean, plenty of towels all with the added bonus of pool and sauna. Breakfast was good, service was quick and the hotel is well situated for Fort William, Aviemore and Inverness.

    The staff tried very hard considering after our booking 10 days earlier the hotel had been taken over.

    Ilmainen parkkipaikka tien toisella puolella, ravintola, huone oli lämmin ja lämmitys toimi. Nettiyhteys ei toiminut huoneessa, piti mennä aulaan. Sauna on päällä klo 8-20, tosin ovi oli rikki eikä saunaa harmiksemme lämmitetty lainkaan.Relatively friendly staff, warm room, heating was good free parking.

    Breakfast was not good as it was said on the website and there were "internals problems" that prevented cooked breakfast. It seems to me that it is hotel's policy to save money since others have previously noticed the same. There was an akward smell in the lobby. We booked this one to be able to go to sauna, but the door was broken and we couldn't go there. Internet in the lobby only. It was said that sauna is free but it would have cost 5 £/ person.
