The floors were filthy and i felt instantly unclean as soon as we walked in. The landlord needs to sack the cleaner or... More

Having visited this hotel for a few drinks whilst visiting family i must say i was disgusted. This place is a disgrace i am very surprised it has not been shut down by environmental health and that was just the toilets and restaurant/bar area never mind the rooms i dread to think what they are like!

When we arrived to check in on Saturday it appeared that the room hadn't been cleaned since the day I had booked... More

Thumbs up!!! really had a great time... The owners have been exceptional hosts... very welcoming and you just feel at home immediately. Breakfast was a touch of Scotland and was served to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble and the best of all is that they shared many secrets no travel guide will tell you. We followed their advise along... More
