From check in to check out this place ticked all the boxes! Lovely clean, warm and well equipped comfortable rooms. The staff were superb and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent as was the wifi. Thank you to the manager and his staff for making our very short stay so pleasant, comfortable and indeed memorable ! 👌👍

Initially, we called in for coffee on our way to Hillswick. Although the exterior of the building is not particularly exciting, the entrance lobby/reception is a very cosy place to sit and drink coffee - so much so, that we did on four different days. We also chose to eat here on two evenings instead of the hotel we were...

Two colleagues and me stayed at this hotel for two days. It is a good clean hotel with a few quirks in that it looks modern in some areas but also a 80's through back in others. Overall okay for business but if you were paying for it yourself you would want more for the money. Breakfast was okay too.

Only place we were able to book in the area. Prices clearly aimed at oil companies. Fairly modern place (1980s?). It was fairly empty when we were there - the (few) better places around were fully booked. We didn't have dinner; breakfast was OK. We were cycling so had little choice without too many extra miles, but if in a...

Good clean rooms cosy, the food is excellent and the variations / selection good, the seafood choices are tremendous as the should be as everything's fresh and extremely tasty. The staff are very friendly and nothing's ever a bother to them. The adjacent...
