Great location but needs an upgrade

Only two things needed to enhance our stay and encourage us back....a working lift to our room and air conditioning for our oven of a room (or at least a fan as a stop gap). Easy walking distance to town.

value for money

We really enjoyed our stay here. The facilities for the children were brilliant. A new centre recently opened with a recording studio! The staff were great. The rooms are tired but we didnt plan on staying in the room all day!

Disappointing Family stay

I booked 2 rooms, 1 for my teenage son and I and the other for my elderly parents. On arrival, the disabled access request had not been passed on to the hotel and my parents had to be accommodated in a different hotel (Highland Hotel) from us which was very disappointing. The room my parents had was stunning and had free note pads/pens/fruit teabags/shortbread and face cloths which our shabby room did not. Our room was very basic in comparison and had a tiny shower head over the bath that required a correct mix of both hot and cold taps to work compared to the 7jet power shower in my parents' room.
