Great will be back
Staff were fabulous especially the lady thy looked after us in the dining room. She was so good with us and our wee girl. View from the room was spectacular. The only thing that was a negative was a noise in room during the severe wind. It was coming from the bathroom Vent. But I don’t think that’s the hotels fault for how windy it was.
