Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hotel set in lovely grounds with very friendly owners. Very clean. Relaxing atmosphere. Food and service were excellent. Will definitely consider a return visit for more than one night stay this time.

Relaxing atmosphere with friendly and professional staff that look after you well. Really glad we stayed here rather than some bland 'chain' hotel. Great selection of malts in the bar! Large garden that is great for a stroll around before dinner.

We found the accommodations were comfortable and clean, and we enjoyed eating dinner in the restaurant. The old buildings were charming, and the grounds were well kept. My only complaint is that you can hear very clearly through the walls and ceiling, which made falling asleep a little difficult. Overall it was a nice place to stay and the staff... More

We loved the location and the historic building and lovely garden atop a small hill with very old stone walls. The room we had was modest in size, but with some very nice touches including in-room coffee/tea service and plenty of pillows. Everything was very clean and there was plenty of storage space. The hosts were very kind and accommodating,... More

Found this Hotel on the internet and was not disappointed. Old buildings comfortably equipped with excellent hospitality and staff. Breakfast excellent and dinner very good with good selection of dishes. Beautiful garden, but weather not warm enough to enjoy. Perfect location for exploring such a beautiful area.

I much enjoyed my week of leisure in August 2014. The owners and all the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They were all very helpful and accommodating. The location of the hotel is fantastic, a little elevated, very quiet and surrounded by trees but still only a few steps away from the High Street. There was a nice choice... More

Stayed at the Columba house and were greeted by the South African couple who bought over this hotel a year ago. In my opinion their personal involvement with the guests, and the hospitality is the big reason to go there. The guy has been a head chef and it's evident in the food that gets served. Had dinner in the... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights mid August 2014, during a road trip from London (which included Snowdonia, then Kingussie, then the Orkneys, back to Loch Lomond, then Yokshire then finally back to London) so we were able to compare various similarly priced hotels in a short period of time. We both got a very warm welcome... More

My wife and I stayed in the penthouse on Friday 8th August. Mark greeted us at the reception and showed us the downstairs public rooms, interesting in the conversation he meitioned that "everyone these days is an hotel inspector or a chef". Were shown to the upstairs room, spacious, clean and well appointed, but then at £135 for the night... More
