Liked: The location and price was excellent, upon arrival I liked the old shabby character and atmosphere of the hotel. All other hotels are all too modern now, ossains was unique. After walking 96 miles of the Wesr highland way this was perfect.

Disliked: The carpet and uneven floor in room.

12 August 2015 Derek would recommend this property

Liked: It's a scruffy old hotel which has seen better days but must've been very nice in the 1970's. There's no catering but the location is great for places to eat, You do get free breakfast cereal and coffee in the morning and there's a small bar for residents. The staff are friendly, the rooms are basic but comfortable. Ideal for people who are happy in low budget or hostelling type accomodation. Great value, good hillwalking base, I'll be back.

Disliked: Some people might find thingsa bit threadbare and run down, I didn't mind, if you do, don't go, lots of other people will be happy there.

Liked: Good location although not well signposted and difficult to find.

Disliked: Poor car parking, had to park on double yellow lines and be shown a 'space' between a van and a cherry picker which had a sign for ossians hidden behind the van. My partner was unable to get out of the passenger side of the car as the space was so small. Shower water was warm at best and only cold water from both sink taps.

Liked: Ossians is an easy walk from the bus station/train station, even with a large suitcase. It is right on the High Street so easy access to everything. Basic breakfast items available if required but there are plenty of eateries out in the town so you won't starve. My room was advertised as a basic/small single and it was certainly that. And it had its own bathroom. Overall it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The reception is a couple of flights of stairs up from the street and no lift that I could find. There was a lift from the reception floor to the rooms above, but it was a bit of a maze to find it and it ended up being easier to drag the suitcase up the stairs. If you're travelling light then no worries. Carpet in the bathroom was a bit odd. Also the bathroom contained the only wardrobe and was the only place to put the suitcase. Free wifi only available in public areas so no privacy for Skype etc. but ok for emails and the like.

Liked: Price

Disliked: We stayed here Friday night before starting the 3 peaks challenge on the Saturday. Worst mistake ever. There is no possibility of getting any sleep before 2am because of the loud bar and music blaring out. Avoid at all costs.
