I stayed in the hotel for almost 2 months and I'd have stayed more: The Managers are so funny and easy going but also very down to earth: they were very patient with me and I learned a lot. It's located in a calm town with plenty of options to do if you like outdoor activities. They lend me a bike to ride whenever I wanted and this area has bike friendly routes and astonishing coastal paths, but if I wanted a wee of hustle and bustle, Edinburgh was only 20 minutes by train. I had a room of my own, I was at home. I felt in love with Scotland and I would definitely come back. Thank you, guys!

thank you for your feedback Simon

Tras 2 meses y medio trabajando aquí, puedo recomendar la experiencia. El sitio es generalmente muy tranquilo y el trabajo a realizar, por tanto, lo es también. El hotel no es un lujo, pero tienes tu propio cuarto con baño y puedes usar la cocina, el comedor y el bar para estudiar, estar con el ordenador... El pueblo es muy tranquilo y tiene un paseo costero muy agradable. Los tres trabajadores del hotel son muy majos y te enseñarán tus quehaceres con paciencia. Por tanto, si buscas un lugar tranquilo para trabajar y estudiar o simplemente pasar unas semanas relajadas te lo recomiendo.

No, no recomendaría a nadie la experiencia en este sitio. Me trataron fatal, y me echaron sin motivo, culpándome a mí encima de todo.
Pedí explicaciones y no me las dieron. Las que me dieron eran poco concretas. Precisamente buscaba defenderme, pero no se me dio la oportunidad de ello. Entre otras cosas se me trató como si fuera gilipollas, me intentaron colar que me levantara a las 4 de la mañana a poner el agua caliente, (a lo que por supuesto me negué) , me pidieron que desviara a mi teléfono el del sitio, siendo yo una simple voluntaria. Un horror. Y encima no me dejaban despedirme.

Muy recomendable experiencia especialmente si estas estudiando o con otro trabajo al mismo tiempo. Las tareas son livianas y la comodidad del hotel es inmejorable (habitacion y baño privado para todos los voluntarios) y ademas que el equipo es amigable. Si quieres ir a recorrer Edinmburgo (depende de tu presupuesto) pero solo lo recomiendo en tus dias libres.
