Once there, the hotel was good.....as I'd already read on TA it was run like a ship! The staff do a great job, and it seems lots of different ones...

This is a hotel for coach trips run by the highland heritage. It's a great holiday visiting lots of places. The other reviewers are correct in all they say. BUT this is not what's said The whole place needs updating The carpets the bed linen the desks even the curtains. The dining room felt like a relic from the 70s....
