Lovely rooms, great big bed, quality bedding and nice decor. Hotel is comfortable, staff attentive, local produce and drinks and good food. The hotel gas a couple of areas with open fires and comfy seats which are perfect for an after dinner G and T - Scottish gin of course! What more can you ask for of a small hotel.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights in October. The welcome was friendly and the staff were very helpful. My room was fantastic - big and comfortable with great views of the bay and Holy Isle. I ate in the restaurant both nights - the food was superb. I'll definitely be back!
