friendliness off staff, accommodation price, cafe prices and ex service
Location, close to the blue bridge ferry!
close to train station, the bar downstair is good.
since it was very windy, at night it was really loud, i think the building itself is very old.
The main point for me is the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. I love the way the hotel and accommodation has continued to be upgraded while still providing good value for money.

Bed comfy. Shower good. Nice and clean. Good to have an opening window
Bar didn’t open so no drinks at all. Central heating was too hot and can’t turn it down
