Was looking forward to our stay. Looks great from outside and person in the bar was very friendly. Once in the room it is very worn and could do with a lick of paint. And it was very dusty. The bathroom needed a deep clean and even a lick of paint. The bed I could feel every spring and did...

Went on a 3night stay with my partner on our holiday October break. On arrival hotel was closed to 4 o'clock so don't make your way any earlier!!! Got checked in and we got a ground floor room 6!!!!. As soon as you opened the door you could smell the dampness. The room was all painted in a dark red...

Thirty of us booked lunch for 2pm on Saturday 8th October 2016. When we arrived at 1.45pm we were told they'd only expected us for drinks, but took our orders anyway. Six meals were provided at 2.40pm. The rest arrived about 3'10pm. The staff were rude. I ordered fish and chips with mushy peas and tartar sauce. There was no...

This review is for the restaurant only. The bar and waiting staff were really friendly and helpful. We ordered food from both the menu and the specials board, and it was served hot and tasty, albeit it was a bit of a long wait - in fact it meant more time for another round of draught beers. I would eat...

We arrived at the property at 3:30 pm and there was no one there and two other couples waiting. We went and ate next door (lovely) and then returned at approx 5:30. We had to pay first (mistake) and then we were given the keys. We went to the rooms and they were very poorly decorated with terrible bathrooms. Filthy...

The outside of MacKenzie’s Highland Inn looks smart, eye catching and inviting. Unfortunately, we’d booked three nights here. We walked in, expecting good things having seen the outside, and were greeted with a demand for the cost of the stay upfront, which amounted to £200. There was no receipt provided. There was no offer to show us the rooms first,...

When we checked in at the bar the welcome was fantastic, the barman could not have been nicer. The room was very basic, small in size but had everything we needed. The bathroom was very poor, not so clean and the shampoo etc was in a sachet. Hot water tap did not work and it had an awful smell when...

We planned on booking this for our wedding reception and everything was going great until we tried the food. The kids meals were fine except for a bit of lumpy mash, but the steak pie with red wine and mushrooms was vile. Soggy barley below the pastry made it look less than appetising, but the veg looked good. Sadly, a...

Nice welcome by barman not so good in morning at breakfast. Pretty dour waitress. Food was good and breakfast well cooked and plentiful. Rooms were very dark and overcrowded with large, outdated furniture (front fell off the drawers). Rooms and beds were clean but hole in mattress. Good hotel for a stop over if heading north but wouldn't want to...
