We booked a three night break here last week. After reading some of the reviews l was a bit apprehensive but they were not needed we were greeted by the owner and her two dogs,our room was huge four poster bed and two singles a huge 40" tv and a very large shower room the heating wasn't on but l turned the radiator on and soon the room was warm
We ate in the restaurant every night food was good freshly cooked, breakfast was good also
Yes some of the rooms are a bit dated but after talking to the owner she said they had only been in 3 years and it is a work in progress as a sign told you
We will definitely return and Grace who looked after us was a gem and we wish her well for her forthcoming wedding

Stayed here for 2 nights at end of a weeks break in Scotland was going to cancel to be honest due to previous reviews but glad we didn't the owners made us very welcome as did their delightful two dogs nothing is too much trouble for them along with the fantastic waitress. Yes it is work in progress and still needs a lot of tlc in certain places but our room was cleaned and towels changed daily. The breakfast was good and cooked to order. This is a pet friendly hotel and guests also bring their dogs but no way was it smelly as suggested by some reviewers and I suggest if you dislike animals that much you don't stay here.

stayed just one night. Enormous room with chairs and table. Owners great and were good enough to put football on for me in the bar. Good choice for evening meal with average prices. Cooked breakfast was breakfast piping hot and a good variety.
