My family with young children had a delightful visit. Breakfasts were great and the rooms are beautiful and spacious. The staff were so kind and helpful, like when we needed a car. Can't wait to return.

Really nice place, with a play area for kids outside. Not too far from the Highland Park Distillery. Rooms are nice and clean and spacious. Little bit of a walk to the town centre, but taxis available. Friendly staff.
