Myself and my partner booked to stay here for a last minute 2 night stay. I booked it through a well known 3rd party website under the option of 'book now pay at the hotel'. 4 nights before our stay I have the £120 taken from my account, although this was not what I agreed it was there to be...

Without a single shadow of a doubt, this is the worst hotel experience I have ever had. The whole place-especially the room we stayed in-looked like it had not been decorated or cleaned in years. The rooms were filthy, dusty, mouldy, full of limescale, damp and smelled utterly horrific. The shower door was broken and the inside of the shower...

Wishing I had read some of the reviews before booking this , but it was outwith my control and a bit last minute. No wonder we were able to get booked. Truly aweful , possibly one of the worst places I have stayed. The rooms are really tired and need a right overhaul, especially the bathrooms. Think the place had...

I would not recommend anyone to go there to stay. The family room was terrible the decoration looks to have been done either by a visually impaired person or a drunk. The bathroom was terrible shower door away from wall dripping stopcock making both rooms smell damp. Towels never changed in three days and there was four of us. Room...

Having visited this area many times previously and thought the hotel looked good, thought it would be worth a try. Biggest mistake ever! Family room was very dark with 2 bunkbeds (which made so much noise, neighbours would also have failed to sleep). Curtains falling off the wall hid the draft coming in the window and lack of any heating...

We had just come down from the mountain and booked into the Mackenzie's and to what a delight. Very friendly staff , lovely little pub and good wholesome food that was priced right. We had a room upstairs with a view of the mountains which had the biggest bed I have ever slept in. There was coffee and biscuit's at...

Do not stay here - it is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Dirty, badly decorated, disinterested staff. Cannot believe they are allowed to remain open in this day and age. Not even cheap - I was 75 quid to stay. Double bed was 2 singles pushed together which were are different heights and there was a ridge...

I wish I'd read the reviews for this hotel prior to booking. I honestly didn't think that a place with such low standards would be tolerated in this day and age. This is a dirty, smelly, dump of an excuse for a hotel. I have never came across anything like it in the UK. It is an embarrassment to Scotland...

The price was good value but the room could have done with a bit of TLC and the bathroom was a bit grotty. They could also do with a good litter pick around the grounds outside. The breakfast however was their redeeming factor, well cooked and a good size to set you up for the day.

We were shocked on arrival. Hardly any room to move the pram in the corridor to the family room. No cot despite our booking stating we had a baby. Had to go to bar for room key and find our own way. The room was dark red, the beds squeaked beyond belief and the carpet was in a state that...
