Have stayed here on and off over the last month or so, as working in the area. I like the place as the owners and staff are friendly, the rooms are adequate, the restaurant is handy and the food is really good. I reviewed the restaurant previously when staying at another hotel in the area. The car park is small... More

Other reviewers have commented adversely on the size of the single room(s); my view is that the room I occupied for one night was more than adequate. I raised one concern with the co-owner and was assured that this concern would be addressed immediately. The food in the restaurant (both dinner and breakfast) was excellent - but beware the huge...

Booked this hotel for 3 nights for Hogmanay. The owners are lovely and the rooms are well cleaned. Overall the decor is a little dated and needs some work but to be honest an awful lot of hotels I have stayed at lack this kind of investment. The prices were reasonable and the breakfasts good but we spent a lot... More

We were travelling down from John O Groats on our Road Trip and looking for a simple B&B for wife and I and 13 year old son. A family room at this place cost me £100 and as it was getting late at night I reluctantly accepted this rate. Room OK but foosty smell and in need of a clean... More

Stayed here for 1 night on a business trip. Friendly people, decent food, very reasonable priced and a good room, not huge, but big enough for a single and for the price I paid. The hotel is centrally located, everything at walking distance.

I had tried to cancel my booking here 2 days before my arrival, but because I had missed the cutoff time they refused to accept anything less then the full price. The exterior and ground floor were pretty scruffy, but the room itself was clean enough although tiny - it would be ideally suited to someone who enjoys sleeping in... More

It was our 25th wedding anniversary had passed this place heaps of times and thought we would try it. So glad we did. The service and food was fantastic. Needs a wee bit of a facelift but then don't we all. Do not pass this by the food was very authentic and good value too. Will be back in September... More

Stayed several years ago and still very reasonably priced on 2013 and good value for the area it is in. Good location for touring the surrounding area including castles and Culloden - also if touring to the western mountains,.
