Good: The room was large, the bed comfortable and the bathroom large, modern and well appointed. But those are qualifiers to be in the hotel game at all, not really differentiators.
Average: Breakfast of reconstituted scrambled eggs. How hard would it be to get fresh eggs, really? Cereals in a box, jam in single serve packs. You know the drill.
Awful: No laundry service! At all. I was visiting relatives, so out late each of the three evenings I was there. On the first night I was locked out of the hotel because the night porter was nowhere to be seen. After about 45 minutes of knocking increasingly loudly, a very nice guest from Chicago let me in. The next morning the nice young woman who served me at breakfast thought "the porter must have been out the back", but he most definitely was not. You can knock on a lot of windows in 45 minutes. On the two following nights the front door was left unlocked and I helped myself to my room key.
Kirkhouse Inn has all the makings of a good little hotel, but none of the spirit. The only reason I am giving it "average" is because hotels in the UK are generally expensive and of a poor standard. In Chile, where I am heading next, a place like Kirkhouse Inn would already be out of business. Shame, as it has potential.
