It didn't take long for starters and mains to arrive but forget about dessert was waiting 20 minutes as staff were only interested in new arrivals so no dessert. Had to leave as had appointments...

On entering the room we were disgusted to notice that the room was not ready for us... The bed remained "slept in" from its previous occupants with stains... More

Very nice traditional Scottish hotel makes you feel really in Scotland! Very clean overall, comfortable room, great breakfast and dinner! The hotel has also a nice bar! At walking distance you can find also a complex with a bar, a restaurant and a supermarket!
