Very cosy, comfortable and friendly guest house with hospitable owners. The rooms are perfect, well equipped with everything you need, and the breakfast is wonderful. You may choose between English, Scotish or Continental breakfast or taste the porridge of the housewife.

We managed to get a room at 8pm on a monday night for 2 nights. We were really impressed with the warm welcome we had received, room was a lovely and comfortable double room. Breakfasts were tasty and set us up for a day of walking. Thank you for looking after us. Becki and Marc.

The 3 of us ( including 24 year old daughter) stayed here for 3 nights on a recent visit to Scotland. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the family room we stayed in was a good size for 3 adults with a fair amount of luggage. The breakfasts were good with a 'Special' being on offer each of the mornings... More

We only stayed here one night. We were in a ground floor room which was very stuffy and we couldn't open the window as it was near a noisy road. The people in the room above us constantly made noises till late in the evening. Breakfast was okay but we felt we were just a number. In and out and... More

Peter and I are sorry you felt this way about our home. Perhaps if you had told us of your concerns we could have tried to resolve them . Although our house is near the main road the room you were in was at the back of the house 35 metres away from the main road. After 10.30 pm traffic... More

More like a mini hotel, not so much like a home. But clean room, although small, and decent bath. Nice breakfast room and delicious breakfast with a daily special. We did not drive to dinner as it was pouring rain, and our restaurant was at the opposite end of town, but it seemed it was very close to the main... More

One of a number of B&Bs all in a row going up Grampian Road we booked this one on the basis of recommendation and were not disappointed. Arriving off the sleeper at 7.30 we were provided with breakfast and a very early check in arranged. The atmosphere was friendly and informal, the room excellent and the breakfast first class. The...

We spent one night here recently and were given a warm welcome by Rosemary. Our room was very comfortable and bathroom spotlessly clean too. Plenty of towels. Rosemary reccomended several places to eat which was very helpful. Breakfast next morning was excellent and although very busy we were well looked after.. Would like to return when next in the area

The breakfast was definitely the highlight of the stay, being both very high quality and with lots of choice. The family room was clean and comfortable and the smaller members of the family found the shower very exciting. Cake on arrival was a bonus too. The staff were very friendly but it did feel more like a hotel than a... More

It seemed nice when we arrived the lady was friendly and our cake was nice! The lounge for guests looked cosy but other people were in there so we didn't use it.

Glad you enjoyed all our facilities including our little extras we provide. The rooms are definitely part of our lovely guest house. I feel perhaps you need to find a small B@B to enjoy the company of the the owners and their family. Sometimes it can be difficult to get the right balance of being friendly and accommodating but yet... More
