Lovely
Super! The staff were wonderful. The Caledonian Suite was a little tired, but still perfectly comfortable, fairly luxurious and the beds and linen were lovely. Enjoyed our dining experience in grazing. Overall, the staff made the stay!

Room for improvement in Breakfast service
It was amazing. However the breakfast service was weak. Even though the staff is kind and friendly they assume I can eat a whole plate in 5 mins. That is, once you order two plates (starter and then the main) they provide you the main dish just after the starter.. uups wait a minute what is going on? So it ruined our day as my mother (65 yo) could not eat her cold over cooked bacons and have to eat lunch just after her breakfast.😞😞😞
