Im glad you enjoyed your stay but I am sorry that you felt a bit done by taking the B/fast for £5 per Person and I don't think you will find Many B&Bs with a Swimming Pool or Fitness Centre.. All The Best Ben More

We stayed for one night and the room was clean and comfortable. The bedrooms are in an annexe so no noise from the pub. There was some traffic noise from the nearby road in the morning. The landlady and landlord were friendly. The room information stated that they didn't mind people bringing in takeaways and a microwave, plates and cutlery... More

We recently stayed 1 night at the Zoar Guest House. We booked ahead, and on arrival were a little worried about the noise from busy Brechin Road. Our worry proved unfounded as the noisy traffic stopped after peak hour. Our room was very clean and a reasonable size, the bed was very comfortable, somewhat unusual in the UK in our... More

First of all, we felt less than welcome by the hosts. Maybe we caught her/them on a bad day, but if it hadn't been so late in the day, we would have left. The room was clean, the bathroom was adequate. But both had such strong Air Wick scents, I asked them to be removed. I could hardly breathe! Thankfully... More
