Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The Spa is not connected to the hotel and did not have changing facility which meant crossing the forecort in bath robe and swinsuit not good in Scotland in December. The jacuzzi was out of order and the outdoor hot tub was not hot enough for a long secession. The in room tea/ coffee required you to call reception for milk. This took 20mins and two phone calls. The room faced the main A9 about 150yds away, windows were only single glazed which caused us to be woken up by heavy lorries thundering past at 5.30am. On returning from breakfast there was a strong smell of sewage in the bathroom which did clear quickly after about 10mins. All in all not what was expected.
