Looking at pictures and the outside of hotel 1st impression certainly does not do justice. The room was clean and had superb views over the rolling countryside. The breakfast was delicious.We had an evening meal which was really nice and good portions though a bit expensive. The WiFi in the room was erratic.

In my opinion IGNORE all the bad reviews for this place. The people who've bad mouthed this place are obviously living in dream world where they think their S@#T don't stink and are used to silver service while 'Henry' pours them drinks and put mints on their pillows!! Get a grip. This place is fantastic. Food is excellent. Staff extremely... More

Friendly and welcoming staff, relaxed atmosphere, large and comfortable bedroom with lovely bathroom, great food and pet friendly. Our kind of place. Whilst our first night was peaceful, as we had expected from our last stay, there was a wedding reception on the second night, with loud music, and our room was directly above it. The owner was more than... More

Stayed here on business, room was of good size, and had a beautiful view to wake up to. The food and service was OK. Tartan everywhere. Parking, and a good location for a nice stroll to the river nearby.

Stayed here for two nights on our way home from top end of Scotland. Lovely welcome on arrival, spacious room at the back of the hotel with glorious views of the countryside. Comfy bed with the best pillows I've ever had in any hotel. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Didn't have dinner in the hotel but was told by other... More

I stayed at the Bruce Hotel for three nights to allow me to attend a friend's wedding. The rooms were well sized and very comfortable. The hotel was kept very clean. A very good menu with extensive choice. Breakfasts were fantastic with plenty on the plate. The real credit to the Bruce Hotel was its staff - all of them... More

We were visiting the Dark Skies Park and needed a place to stay that would allow dogs...this seemed to be the only one in the area! The hotel is small, rather dated, but friendly, reasonably clean and comfortable. The breakfast was second to none though! Cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast, full Scottish with haggis! Excellent and set us up for the... More
