Very comfortable room with fantastic views of the castle. Staff very attentive, accommodating and welcoming. Felt very well looked after During our stay. Location also fantastic.
The bed was very comfortable but also rather creaky, turning over at night made some noise which some people could find a bit of an annoyance.

Great location, staff were so friendly and helpful. Fantastic location for all tourist attractions, and great places to eat just a short walk away.
The pillows were a little soft for my liking, but aside from that everything was perfect.

Caley bar, especially staff. Manager with board needs to lighten up a bit. Nice, comfortable room. Great room service food.
Spa was too far away and small pool full of kids.

Everything about our stay was great. The room was excellent and the hotel staff were very friendly and gave great service.
We had dinner at the Graze restaurant. Whilst the food was excellent, the service was slow, especially when it came to our drink orders. We had to order our drinks several times at points in order to actually get our drinks. Little things like we needed to ask for steak knives as well. Nothing major but wasn’t expected given the overall apparent standard of the hotel and restaurant along with the price.
