First reviewed 18 July 2012 An awfully long trek to get there, but well worth it. Spectacular views during the last couple of hours on the coach & then on the trips. The extra cost of the optional trip is well worth the money as Colin the local driver really does know his subject. The hotel is the usual Shearings... More

The staff were very friendly, the meals were good. Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the following, The window frame in our room was filthy, The crumbs under our dining table stayed with us for the duration of our stay, the main entrance was the smoking area with the sand bucket, so when entering or exiting the hotel you walked...

Stayed at this hotel last weekend with a large group of friends. The hotel staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Karen deserves a mention as she was very, very helpful and worked really hard to ensure we enjoyed our stay. She was really busy at all times but always had a smile on her face. The hotel was dated, however... More

The building and the setting could not be more magnificently set. To wake up, draw the curtains and see dolphins in the loch has to be one of the nicest ways to start ones day. As a single traveller I was offered a single room but the bed was so small I had to ask for an upgrade to a... More

Sorry to see you didn't enjoy youre stay as much as we would have liked but glad to see you enjoyed the scenery, your observation of us catering primarily for coach parties is correct, without which the hotel would be unsustainable . However your impression , other guests were an inconvenience ,, could not be wider of the mark as... More

Just back home after spending two nights here. Weather was awful but that's not the hotels fault. The hotel is a little tired and would benefit from a make over.
