Nice classic hotel
Spent a couple of nights here as a base while traveling to the isles. Very convenient location for the train and ferries, friendly and helpful staff, nice breakfast. There are a few signs of wear as you'd expect with an older building but it was kept nice and clean.

4/10 Fair

Room and bathroom very small, but the main issue I had was the very poor sound insulation, could hear every word in the neighbouring room, which was going late to the night

Obama best.
Really felt welcome here and will be staying here next year. All the staff I spoke with were very polite and helpful. Buffet breakfast was well presented and tasty. Great location for all the towns amenities and the ferry port to the islands.
