Macdonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa has been attracting lots of enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor:
‘Excellent quality hotel for a short break. My wife and I visited the hotel for a short break at the end of November and were really impressed by the quality of room, food and staff which we experienced.
‘The room was really comfortable with everything available that we needed. The bar and restaurant were well designed and had lots of atmosphere – very welcoming. However the real bonus was the quality of staff that worked there and made our stay very comfortable…’
‘Top class hotel. The Inchyra Hotel has got it right. Spotless, wonderful staff, especially Euan. Steaks cooked to perfection, breakfast spot on. Wheelchair friendly which is a great help. If you a looking for a quiet relaxing break, to be looked after by all the staff, to chill out in the fantastic spa area and enjoy wonderful food, then try this hotel. I will be back soon.’
