My wife and I have just returned from an overnight in the Berkeley. From the start the welcome was superb. What a difference it makes to have that personal touch: Megan and the dogs made us feel very welcome. Modern decor and spotlessly clean throughout. The icing in the cake was a full breakfast being delivered to our room this... More

No wonder Scottish Tourism gets a bad name. Had booked into the sister B&B the Corner House and when we got there we could not get in. Went up to the Berkeley which also looked closed but eventually got hold of a man named Michael who was the least helpful person I've ever met. Said the Corner House had closed... More

We've just come back from an overnight stay and can't fault it. Megan and the dogs made us feel extremely welcome and we will definitely be going back in the summer. Lovely little hotel! Decor was excellent.
