10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location to the Stenaline ferry was close enough to walk but considering we had four bags and it was a very busy thoroughfare, we chose to keep our rental car and drive in. The alternative was to call a taxi. Maggie was terrific in every way - knowledgeable, funny, bagged breakfast for the early start, extremely comfortable king-sized bed, large room. She made change for our night's stay and included a lovely note that we discovered in our bagged breakfast. The BnB next door served food and drinks and she coordinated our dinner time for us.

5.4 Okay
Pros: Food and drinks good. Welcomed by really nice guy and found I booked the wrong date. The room was basic, seemed ok but there’s no en-suite. Shared bathroom was grim and shower filthy. The noise from the bar was awful. Wouldn’t go back. Shame cause staff really nice. There was a cigarette stuck in our sink.
Cons: Everything except for the dinner and staff.
