My single room was small but perfectly formed. Evidently it had been recently been renovated, as it was almost clinically clean, with fresh white walls and stainless steel fittings. I had dinner in the hotel and it was a good choice, as everything was clearly home cooked. Some of my fellow diners appeared to be non-residents - including a mature... More

Friendly greeting on our arrival, excellent first impression. The decor in our room was a bit mismatched but everything was very clean and bed comfortable, unfortunately the curtains did let in way too much light, meaning an early wake up. The shower was good and powerful. Breakfast was really tasty with good quality produce. The small bar was cosy and... More

We were greeted by the friendly owner who showed us to our room, which was clean and tidy.The only slight niggle was the pillows were rather flat nice plump ones would have looked more inviting. Breakfast was served with a friendly good morning smile from... More

We bought an 'it is on' voucher for here last month which essentially got us 50% off normal prices. I can honestly say the food was absolutely fantastic! I had their home made beef curry which was so tasty I want to have it again now! The ambience and service was very relaxed and attentive. Given this 5 stars as... More

Stayed here for one night after a hectic day up and down the A9. We had a lovely meal with family to celebrate our 45th! wedding anniversary. It would have been more relaxing if littlest member of the group had not fallen and put his tooth through his lip. However Euan and staff helped out with some ice and he... More

I stayed in a fairly basic single room which was okay for the money. Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to eat in the restaurant due to work commitments. However, what for me at least transformed my experience from average to good was the lady in charge who served me breakfast. She was a lovely friendly person. I hope she... More

My boyfriend and I went to MacDonald Arms Hotel for a wee get away and it was awesome. Euan was extremely helpful, welcoming and informative. The room was clean and just what we needed. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again. Thank you Kirsten, but especially Euan.
