10/10 Exceptional

The room was clean and spacious considering it was over a pub. Water, biscuits, coffee, tea, and cocoa all readily available. The shower was amazing. Check in and out were super simple and the pub had great food.

Above average stay
Great stay and fun room. Very easy check in and check out. Seemed to have more of a restaurant with a Bnb/hotel added on than a Bnb/hotel with a restaurant. But even with that we had everything we needed

Nice and clean stay
Nice pub with new and clean rooms. Good location near sites in Inverness. Staff were very sweet and helpful. Breakfast was meh but cheap so that makes it fine. Room was pretty hot so maybe a bigger fan would help.
