We have stayed at the Crown and Castle on many occasions and it is always wonderful. Lovely food, great service, comfortable rooms. We hesitate to praise it too highly in case everyone goes and we cant get a room anymore!

Beautiful rural setting, comfortable rooms, fantastic food. What makes this place special is the friendly, welcoming staff that make you feel entirely at home and bend over backwards to make your stay a happy and comfortable one. A lesson in how a hotel shoul be run.

Arrive at 2. Boots on and start walking the sea wall. Sun low, clear view of the Ness and a keen northerly seeking out any bare skin. Back via the castle, hose down Toby and dry him off with the towel provided. They do love their dogs here. Check in at 3.30. Well thought out garden room has the makings... More

stayed on one of the excellent value weekend DB&B breaks. Lovely room, great people - friendly, efficient and accommodating - and good food. Room was excellent - view over the castle - well appointed with a lot of nice touches. They exceeded our expectations!

We and our dog have stayed many times at The Crown & Castle, but as we were having an 8 day break, rented a cottage in this delightful village. However, as the food is so superb, we ate at the Crown every day. Some of our meals included a Xmas lunch that was amazing, steak cooked perfectly and had so... More

We have stayed at the Crown & Castle on many occasions and our latest visit was just as good as ever. Lovely room; great ambience; staff helpful and friendly and, of course, excellent food. We would highly recommend the Crown & Castle to anyone wanting a relaxing and refreshing break (short or long).

Recently visited this hotel for a weekend - the Hotel, room and staff is lovely - we were very happy with this - But what let it down was the food - which was quite tasteless (lovely to look at) but the taste of it was so disappointing - almost as if no seasoning was added - the coffee also...

Obviously we are glad you enjoyed your stay vis a vis... More

We recently celebrated my wife's birthday, and were only able to stay for the one night. We have previously stayed on numerous occasions, including Christmas. We both love everything about the hotel and have always experienced a very friendly and attentive service. The food is excellent. Our two miniature dachshunds also have a high opinion ,being similarly very well looked... More

Have been on a good number of occasions over a period of years. Ideal for the short break at any time of year. Owners/partners very approachable, friendly and receptive to comment. Management is spot on and unobtrusive, but nothing is missed. The staff are relaxed, seem to enjoy their jobs, and their performance and attitude is exemplary in our view.... More
