From the moment you arrived , you get treated like royalty. The hotel has character and charm and the staff go above and beyond to make your stay as fabulous as possible. The food is to die for the choose is eminence even the royals would approve. It is impossible for any normal person to find fault with this hotel.

We ate here one evening during a short break in the Cairngorms. Food was very good and excellently presented. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. Menu had a decidedly local feel about it which was nice.
