The hotel itself is located in one of the most stunning areas of the highlands you could wish for. The receptionist on our arrival was most pleasing and helpful, as we had arrived early she made us tea and coffee as we had tae wait for our rooms but not too long. The décor of the hotel and general appearance... More

We have just returned from an 8 day holiday with Shearings and it was everything we expected. The hotel is a bit tired in places but for what you pay this holiday is excellent value. This was our third visit and it will certainly not be our last. Having read the previous reports Shearings had changed the driver at short... More

Through no fault of the hotel we arrived very much later than we should have. This was not our fault either and by way of compensation the under manager at the hotel had placed a bowl of fruit and a box of chocolates in our room. This was very thoughtful of him and greatly appreciated by us. Although it was... More

When we arrived at this hotel we were very impressed, however I was disappointed with the appearance of the foyer, the carpets were very dangerous, they had large creases, very dangerous, I am surprised that no one has fallen over them. We paid for a double sea view room but when we saw it, the view was obscured by a... More

Standard room, that had a side sea view, was basic but clean and had comfortable beds. It was more than adequate for our needs. Food was generally good but sometimes the breakfast Cumberland sausages were replaced with... More
