The Highlander Hotel was lovely, the staff could not do enough for us. The food was excellent with a varied choice on both the dinner and breakfast menu to suit everyone. I read a review of the hotel before we went and was a wee bit concerned but to be honest I think that particular reviewer must have been staying at a different hotel!!. The bedroom was excellent - we brought our dog and sometimes when you include a dog in your booking you can tend to be given a room not quite so nice - but ours was perfect. We will certainly be back - already planning a wee trip with a three of my friends in September.
Reason we chose Highlander was we were going to the the open golf at castle stewart,could not get a hotel any nearer.this apart could not have had a more friendly hotel,all staff are to be complimented,room was clean and comforuble food very good,everyone most helpful
First thing i like about Highlander hotel is its location. Its beautifull place aroung the hotel. Room size and color is really good. I feel like i am in my bedroom..Really enjoy...Breakfast is really testy...
The flexability of the staff< for an early breakfast to be up the hill for a ski race on time
shower, very basic and hot water took forever to come through
all the staff were very friendly, room was spotless, we phoned ahead to say we would be arriving in an hours time at 8pm staff had put the heating on in the room which was great on a cold nite. breakfast was good plenty of cereal to chose from loads of toast fry up was great just what we needed
room needs upgrading, but not that bad
Although we were the only guests at this period, and were preparing for a family funeral, I can offer only praise the the staff on duty, for there help and attention.
Whilst we were the only guests at this time, the staff were very attentive, and could not have been any more helpful
I find it hard to fault hotel on this occasion
The Highlander Hotel represents great value for money and was friendly and comfortable. My only negative comment would be that the decor is very outdated and could do with a bit of an overhaul, especially in the main areas of the hotel. It was ideal for families and offered great accomadation - overall I would not hesitate to recommend it, but please lose some of the floral carpets, curtains sofas !!!!!!!!!!!!
Good location ,quiet,with ample parking.
Limited restaurant menue best described as bar meals.
Could do with a bit of light local music in the bar/breakfast area. When we had breakfast it was very quiet and not awkward but a bit of mellow music would have been perfect
The staff were excellant and very friendly, the breakfast was good. The room was a bit dated and a little cold as it had one electric fire under a draughty window. Very clean throughout. It was a shame that the main hotel including the bar closed early felt a little unwelcoming as we spent the evening just sitting in the hotel room.
room was comfortable, enjoyed having dog staying with us in the room.
shower was a bit small in our room.
Needs new beds very uncomfortable beds springs on matresses
A comfortable hotel with good food, friendly staff and pleasant surroundings.
Condition of the car park - holes filled with water.
The Hotel was welcoming and so was the staff. They gave me lots of information of things to visit around the area.
