Room small and cramped, in need of complete refurbishment, Room and bathroom NOT clean. Noisy late at night due to kitchen staff below. Breakfast very poor quality, we are not fussy eaters but both of us left most of our cooked breakfast, scrambled eggs were horrible, cold and rubbery. Waited nearly 2 hours for our evening meal from ordering, staff... More

We stayed overnight at this hotel 11th July 2014. The view from our en-suite room that cost £110.00 was stunning. Our room overlooked the car park to the rear and beyond that the ground fell away to reveal one of the many sea lochs in Scotland. On the far side of the Loch the ground rose steeply to form mountainous... More

We booked this for my mums 80th birthday lunch. It was excellent, very friendly service and stunning food and one of the best views from a restaurant you can find in Scotland. (but do check - the restaurant isn't always open for lunch, in which case you'll be fed in the cosy bar without the view).

after driving though the Highlands we decided to stop for lunch here and was greeted by warm and friendly staff and good food. Views are magnificent and will be staying here one day. Nothing was trouble to them and we enjoyed our sojourn and would recommend it highly.

We have stayed here many times. The rooms are not spacious but most have fab views of Ben Loyal. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfy. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a good lounge area and a public bar. The food is excellent. We will come back again!

It's an authentic hotel at the very North part of Scotland, where we stayed a couple of nights. The room was in the main building and facing the old Castle. Even if they were rustic, our rooms were well equipped, quiet & comfortable. Convenient Pub within the hotel & a nice lounge to relax and enjoy an evening whisky !... More

Very friendly country hotel. The view from our room was fantastic, overlooking the fields, loch and castle Barraich. At dusk and dawn red deer were roaming in the fields below. Excellent food and very friendly staff. There is a seperate lounge for guests if you prefer not to be in the bar/pub side. In the morning we suffered from a... More

We were a mixed party of seven, two older couples, one single and young couple with baby. Our room was very nice with lovely view, although the bathroom was a bit dated it was spotlessly clean with nice toiletries. Good tea tray. Unfortunately the village had a power cut on our first morning and therefore kitchen unable to cook breakfasts,... More
