Fantastic hotel and great find.
Thia hotel is a real gem. Friendly staff, lovely room which was spacious and clean. We had evening meal which was delicious and great choice. Superb choice of whiskies which we indulged in. Breakfast in the morning was lovely. I opted for full Scottish. The whole hotel has a really good feel and we all had a fantastic stay. Cannot praise this hotel enough.

6/10 Good

Staff were very friendly, food was very good. The hotel is a little grubby with a smell of damp throughout. Both toilets (men and women) were closed in the communal area, meaning a trip to your room if toilet was needed. This would have been very uncomfortable for non residents.

10/10 Exceptional

An absolute gem of a hotel. It was the only one available in the area and my hopes weren’t high from the photos. What a lovely surprise! The hotel has a lovely boutique feel. Beautifully and tastefully decorated. Large room with huge bathroom. Bed was very comfy and I slept brilliantly. Staff were friendly although being a small hotel we had to wait, but hat was fine. Pizzas are out of this world - huge and handmade. There was even gluten free pizza and bread for breakfast. I felt totally comfortable with having children there. Only negative is the toilets downstairs were out of order but the rooms are so close it was fine. Would highly recommend and would love to return. I don’t usually leave reviews but I read all reviews before booking and it was those that convinced me. So ignore the photos, the rooms are great, and the view is fab too.
