We had a great night on our way north. The food is truly amazing and certainly worth choosing the tasting menu! From the amuse bouche to the Lobster, the soup to the two delicious desserts ( soufflé was divine!), from the scallop cooked to perfection to the variety of homemade rolls, we were treated to a top quality dinner.

Stayed here en route to a holiday in the Highlands. The choice was determined by the prospect of some good food and a pleasant place to stay, we were not disappointed. Tried the tasting menu, faultless, the wine choices were sublime and the whole evening memorable. Stayed over in one of the rooms really comfortable and were made to feel... More

With a little trepidation and some concern that we would leave the table hungry, we stayed here one night en route for home in June 2014. The room was clean and fresh-looking. I had requested the riverside room as I wanted to hear the sound of the water - I loved that. The hotel is convenient for the town but... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, lovely ambiance. Nice open bright feel to the place and lovely views outside to the river and lots of greenery. The owners are very friendly and helpful - provided us with sandwiches in our room early afternoon although not on the menu. The restaurant is spacious, open and bright with lovely paintings on the walls.... More

Looking for a late break a month ago. Very good room - with the balcony. The tasting menu with the wines was superb, good range of whisky for afterwards. Excellent breakfast the following morning. Looking forward to the next time

My husband and I spent one night in the room with the balcony which was very nice . The restaurant was very cold and sad I felt with a fitted kitchen as a bar . The food was fantastic until the main course when the food became very fussy and tasteless . The cheese selection was poor for the price... More

We spent the last night of a Highlands and Islands jaunt here and it made a memorable finale. The spacious room, with a small balcony, over looking the pleasantly burbling burn, was delightful and had the most comfortable bed of the fortnight. The floor show by the burn from the resident grey wagtails and dippers was most welcome, as was... More

A converted tweed mill in Kingussie, a short drive from outdoor action in Cairngorms. A truly impressive restaurant which would please the most discerning urbanite food connoisseur. The tasting menu with the chosen wines was wonderful.

This restaurant with rooms is a former tweed mill just a few minutes walk from the main street and about 15 minutes from the station. I stayed three nights having dinner on two of them. If dinner was the standout, everything else was also of the highest quality, and I look forward to returning.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights. We wanted to get away from city life for a while and just relax. Well I could not have found a better place. Nestled in a small glen next to a river it gives the impression you are miles from anything. And yet you are only a 10 min walk from... More
