    I stayed here for 2 nights prior to getting the ferry to the isle of Coll for a wedding and then stayed again for 2 nights when i got back from Coll and i had an excellent stay! Rooms seemed recently decorated, my room had a little kitchen area with a fridge and microwave, kettle etc which was really handy! Great location, within walking distance to the town centre and directly across the road from the train station and ferry terminal! Really couldnt fault the place. 100% would recommend and would stay again.

    Have just stayed here and can’t say just how nice of a stay I had. I was in room 19 and had such a fantastic room, lovely, spacious and spotlessly clean with its own kitchen unit and breakfast table. Bed was lovely and comfortable and I also had an issue with my ferry which meant I had to stay at short notice for a couple of extra days but this was no problem for Sheena and her staff. Met the family dog as well who is lovely and friendly. Only slight problem was the shower pressure isn’t as good as it could be but I found if you turn it to the eco setting and turn it three quarters round I ended up with a pretty decent shower so nothing too much too worry about. For what you pay to stay at a sterile premier inn I would 100% recommend here instead. Better value for money and just a really all round nice experience

    Excellent room. COVID means no food available but plenty of restaurants near by. Very close to ferries, trains,buses and shops.
