when you just used to turn up or see a hotel and stop and get booked in, paid £100 for 2 rooms, was very quiet and up for sale, was a real old fashioned place, dated and money needed to just tidy the edges, but this was fine for me, i like this type of small hotel, i dont mind it being dated as long as its clean and it was, room was ok, 1 room had bath mine had shower which was ok, breakfast was nice, in this internet dominated trade it was a nice change to see somewhere, stop haggle a bit on price and just get a reasonable nights sleep, the couple who owned it were reasonable people, though the guy did snap a bit at me, when i asked if it was quiet due to off the beaten track, he said it was on the busy road to ulapool !!, after a long drive up from north cumbria via glasgow, fort william and loch ness , it was just what was needed,
i guess small hotels like these are on the decline due to the bigger chains offering special internet rates, so was a welcome change to find a reasonable , small hotel with a bit of personality just like the owners.
