swimming pool and sauna were very welcome. close to tourist attractions.
service slow in restaurant and food mediocre.
The food was good drinks were reasonably priced
mattresses were too thin. My partner has bad back and mattresses made it worse
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.
This hotel offers you very good value for money. The hotel is spotless and warm, (apart from the pool). Try it you will not be dissappointed.
Food. Temperature of pool water. Temperature of poolside showers.
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.
friendly and helpful staff.Good location.An interesting little town with the historical village nearby.Good value for money
The breakfast was meagre because they were waiting for groceries
The Staff were excellent very helpful,the room was ideal for any one who is there for the outdoors,very nice breakfast with choices,a good location next to bus stops[if required],The swimming pool is a bit small but has a sauna which is ideal to unwind or wake you up.
Thestaff were very attentive.
That you told us there was no parking or WI-FI-they have both
Nice and warm all the time. Good brakfast in the mornings. The pool and sauna were great.
A bit of work needs doing to bring the hotel up to standard
Nice walks around the kettle hole watching the ducks and the heron. Nice countryside and the pool and sauna was a great treat at the end of the day.
The hotel is a bit tired looking and very outdated
No perferations in the toilet roll!!!!! No scissors either.Costs £5 to use the pool & sauna.Floors really creaky, don`t get a ground floor room.
Room nice and warm and swimming pool
dinner menu and prices
