Great wee hotel
Great food at the bar while watching the football...very comfotable sleep and breakfast ready promptly at 7.30am....let's do it again...great value
Started out good but ended badly
Arrived and everything seemed okay, checked in fine, asked what time I wanted breakfast and had reasonable quality meal.
When came down in the morning however, the hotel wasi in darkness and no staff or anyone else around. Had to leave key in reception, no one to settle my bill and leave via a fire escape as front door locked. Will not recommend because of this and not stay there again. Lone female left stranded in hotel alone at night, is apalling. Laterooms.com, this is not a good recommendation for your booking site either.
