Hi Tara, I'll be glad to answer your question, and btw, Tara is my daughter's name also. If you don't mind climbing many, narrow, stairs with your luggage because there's no elevator, without doubt the best room is the William Wallace Room. I took a group of 3 couples, we all stayed on the top floor, and the William Wallace Room was breathtaking. It was spacious, small balcony, PLUS, it's one of the most haunted rooms in Scotland ~S~. Feel free to contact me more about Scotland and Ireland. I live in Virginia.

Hi there! Yes, there were bathrobes in the room where we stayed that I believe you could purchase, but I was unclear as to whether wearing them meant an automatic purchase. They had slippers as well. However we stayed in the honeymoon suite so I don't know if that's something available in every room or just the suites.

"Spoil yourself and get a 4 poster room you won't be disappointed"
"Themed 4-poster was fantastic, but Room 14 did not have great WiFi signal"
"Every room is unique. Contact the staff in advance and they will help put you in a room that’s best for you."
"Be specific about which room you choose when booking"
"Keep in mind, there's no lift, but if you want wonderful views, be willing to carry luggage up narrow stairs."
