We stayed here on our 2nd to last night of our Highlands of Scotland motorbike tour. Great central location, plenty of parking in public square opposite but our bikes were welcomed onto their private gated driveway which gave us additional security (not that you need it up here!).
A lovely historic building, furnished very comfortably and in really nice colours. Darroch room, with super king bed, is supposedly the smallest room but it was very large and plenty big enough for 2 biker plus bulky bike panniers! We didn't see the other rooms but they must have been enormous if ours was the smallest double. A very good sleep.
Breakfast was disappointing, despite the wonderful views. We booked for 8.30am and were on time, but the breakfast wasn't hot. The sausages, bacon and haggis were lukewarm, the (hard) poached egg slightly warmer but still not as if it had just been cooked. I ate the egg (and bacon as that was cooked OK) but asked for the rest to be zapped in the microwave as the sausage was very pale looking and the underside of the haggis was virtually uncooked. This was done for us both with no issue (but no apology either). I've no idea why this happened as all other reviews appear to rave about the breakfast! Still, the rest of the stay was fantastic so it wouldn't put us off recommending to others, nor put us off a return visit.
