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

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

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,.

We stayed for two nights during August 2013. The owners, a husband and wife team were very helpful, especially when we had an issue logging on to the free wi-fi (our fault, not theirs). The room we had was very comfortable and we slept soundly both nights. The breakfasts were excellent and we also ate there both evenings due to... More
