Great place. The Owners were very friendly and the breakfast was superb and even had home made bread for us at 8 in the morning. The location was lovely, a short way out of town but easy to get to. The bedroom was very well equipped and the bed comfortable. The views from the bedroom window were superb looking out... More

The room we stayed in was very spacious and bright. It had two large windows; the one over the bed had a fascinating view over the loch Leven. Huge private and modern bathroom with a shower and a bathtub. Delicious home made breakfast.

The owners were fantastic - nothing was too much trouble for them, they were very helpful and friendly. The room was great - it has everything you need and a view that you cannot buy. Overall our weekend stay was outstanding and we have booked for next year.
