Some friends of mine have just returned from this place, and I was puzzled that I'd never heard of it or seen any comments about it on TA.
They were not very complimentary, and so I looked at their website (above).
On the home page - 3 glowing references from TA or TA members,
To read the reviews it could be the best hotel in Scotland.
But on closer checking, most of the 65 glowing reports come from "one post members", and almost every single review has a management response.! Has anyone every seen such a level of interest in what TA peoiple think?
Again, on their home page - it claims "65 TA people say its excellent".
COME ON TA !!!! - it must be obvious that this place is using the TA name to promote itself.
It is clearly inviting guests to write reviews which the manager responds to within minutes. It then uses the TA name to say how wonderful it is.
IF THIS CONTINUES, IT MAKES THE REVIEWS A WASTE OF TIME, AND TA COMPLICIT IN PROMOTING THIS 'IFFY' HOTEL.
