It wasn't the charming Scotish arcitecture of eld that was lacking at this 4 star Best Western Inn, in Obane Scotland.
This U.S. Highway brand hotel is unable to shake of the public pit stop mentality even tin the U.K.
1) I was ensured-room Internet. I opted for one of the 6 to 8 ,not partial, but sea side views. Never was I informed that the internet for these rooms was non existent. I queried about issues with the Internet in my suite. I was told that it works best in the back rooms, without having no view or in the lobby.
2. Lack of general service for 130 pounds a night. Unable to call down stairs and receive prompt replies, about Internet over the ph, selection of pillows advertised in the hotel guide. Our suite had no refrigeration, so we were forced to hang a Christmas bag out the window. This prompted a response from management asking us to remove the bag. Gladly. So we we requested common accessory to a hotel room, rich or poor, an ice bucket.
3) Third and finally. I had been recovering from malaria from recent time spent in Africa. I ordered my wife Haddock at the downstairs restaurant, I ordered King prawns that looked as if the had come off the Costco, Walmart, etc. menu I'd had proper prawns the previous evening, and did not feel inclined to save my finger stink as I would a 15 year old juvenile as proof after an encounter with Mrs. Robison. Sure enough. 5 minutes after sending them back the resturant manager was agreeing with his cooks, smelling my finger nod trying to agree to disagree with me.
