Thanks so much for taking time to write such a great review for us. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. Great to meet you and I hope your long journey home went well

Just a one night stay en route to the North Isles, but long enough to appreciate the compact but comfortable bedroom and delicious breakfast of local fish and eggs. The proprietor proved to be very knowledgeable on all things trout-related. Would certainly stay again.

Nice enough people but this hotel is confused and felt unfortable. On top of that the room was tiny. Very questionable decoration - a dated mix of Scottish with heavy African feel. I don't mind heads of animals on the walls - but they have...More

Its unfortunate that you had booked a single room on what is always the busiest two nights of the week and therefore we could not upgrade you to a double. So sorry that you don't like our décor, at the same time thank you for...More
