Stayed 4 nights. Great room and felt at home with access to comfortable lounge and lots of local information. Breakfasts good but could have benefitted from more choice - e.g. fresh fruit or beans on toast. Steve and Angela very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful stay. Very friendly owners. Parking was tight but you were able to walk all around village. Across the street from bank. Clean and comfortable. Great breakfast. WIFI was so-so but we discovered same all over on our trip. My husband wishes the fan in the bathroom had a separate switch because it stayed on after light was off. Would... More

Thank-you for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay. I will explain the 2 points you raised. Parking is tight this month, as you will have noticed we are having work done to the rear of the house and have temporarily lost 1 parking space. Our fans work automatically with the bathroom light as all guests may not use the... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights here mid-June and would have been happy to stay longer. The breakfasts were always good and our room was large, light and luxuriously appointed. Loved the towels! There is a guest lounge available with a comfy sofa and lots of local information and other books to borrow. Free wi-fi with a good consistent... More

We loved staying here. Angela and Steven were the consummate hosts. It's the little things that can make a difference, eg having bags carried up (and down) the stairs, toffees for guests on the entrance table, free wi-fi, and a top sheet under the doona! Great breakfasts to get you on your way and the central location mean I would... More

A friend and I stayed here on a leg of a round Scotland trip. Angela was warmth and hospitality personified. The room was bright, spacious and comfortable. She recommended a restaurant for dinner that was spot on.Breakfast was excellent (best kipper of the trip), and it was an added bonus that she provides parking. I recommend Murray House very highly.

My wife and I stayed at Murray House last night. We called in around 5pm to ask if there were any vacancies and the landlady showed us to room 5 on the top floor. It's a beautiful big family room, there was only the two of us but the landlady (I never did ask her name, but she was great!)... More
