Stayed in the dog friendly lodge, which was just perfect. The location is ideal for the surrounding walks etc. It was a pleasure to be able to do the Fairfield Horshoe, walking out from the accommodation. Little pricey but comparable to similar accommodation in the area. Rooms toasty and warm and the bubble bath was fantastic as it was snowing... More

We were travelling with our 10 year old daughter and found this guest house by shear luck. Firstly although this is classed as a guest house it was better than a lot of hotels we stayed at while travelling in the UK. The rooms were massive and the room we stayed in had a private entrance. The owner Trevor could... More

We stayed here for a short walking holiday. The owner met us, showed us to our room, and explained everything. All very well organised, breakfasts particularly good for a B&B. Clean and well kept up. Only one very small problem – the Wifi in our room (at the very top of the house) was temperamental – you had to sit... More

Attentive, friendly owners and staff who kept things cleared and topped up. Direct line to staff (for emergencies) outside reception hours. Clean, fresh, bright decor.

We stayed here on our way to London from Elgin, and were so pleased to have a comfortable bed to sleep in to break the journey.
