Our room was clean and comfortable. The owner was pleasant and friendly, and yet left you alone to do your own thing which was very much appreciated. Breakfast was good, and the place was full of fab wacky taxidermy as a good Highland house should be. Parking was great, and the location very central, close to some good restaurants for... More

This b&b is within easy walking distance from the city centre>our room was large, cleanliness was good and the ensuite was adequate, if small. Breakfast portions were small and the owners a bit distant. Decor was dated, but it's an old house and I didn't think it was out of character.

The positive about this was that it was very close to the city centre, so ideal if you did not have a car with you. The owners were not overly friendly, the decor was very tired and badly needed updating. Room was not cleaned properly. Ensuite consisted of a private bathroom down the hall. You had to choose your breakfast... More

Nice home but the furnishings were odd and tired. Had a stuffed polecat on display in the dining room. Clean rooms but had a broken floorboard under the carpet & squeaked every time you stood on it. Bathroom & shower was extremely small but plenty of hot water. The walls were a thin & you could hear other guests. Claire... More

As a 18th century property it was full of character, but the decor is a little tired. Having to choose your breakfast the previous evening is not ideal. As I wanted a light breakfast only - I chose a poached egg. Which arrived all alone on a big plate - presentation/imagination was lacking

The outside appears to be a charming but looks can be deceiving. You can tell this was once a nice well taken care of place but now it is showing its age with no maintenance. Mold, wall paper peeling, old beds, absolutely NO water pressure, old linens. Our bathroom was down the hall and was to be used only by... More

My first reaction was it looked a lovely old house. We were shown to our room and then our host disappeared very quickly without asking if it was okay. The room was very dated with worn carpet and dark wallpaper. Tiles near the sink were coming off and the furniture was cheap flat pack. The mirror had no sockets near,... More

This house provides the travellers with the basics of a place to stay : cleaned and comfortable rooms, free parking, staff welcoming, close access to the city center. Some of the rooms do not have their bathroom included, you'll have to go out in the corridor to access your private bathroom, which can be a little bit annoying. Breakfast was... More
