Very historic hotel

Pros: Very calming and relaxing. The fireplace in the library is a beautiful place to relax by after the spa or dinner.
Cons: Although food is very good, the only option is a 2 or 3 course meal. Otherwise its a sandwich. Would like to have just a main course.
Location: Easy to find. Not sure whats nearby.
Very relaxing and clean. Perfect for a relaxing getaway. Very little Scottish staff but otherwise a very Scottish experience in a true castle. The staff are extremely helpful and polite to the highest of standards. I will be back.

Das Hotel ist wunderschön im Stiel eines schottischen Schlosses gehalten. Unsere Suit verfügte über ein riesiges Himmelbett im Mittelalterlichenstiel, eine geräumiges Wohnzimmer und ein Essbereich in einem Turmerker. Auf Anfrage haben wir auch ein Babybett erhalten, für dieses mussten wir aber £15.- zusätzlich bezahlen was ich einwenig frech finde. Das Service Personal war freundlich jedoch nicht sehr professionell. Wir mussten rund 15 Minuten auf Brot für die Vorspeise warten.
