No idea what to expect but what a treat. The hotel was lovely as was the food (we had lunch, dinner and breakfast). The staff were really friendly and helpful and the room was warm and comfortable. Ideal place for a wee break and to explore the area.

We ate in the restaurant and the food was lovely, staff friendly and helpful and all in all had no complaints.The area is attractive and great for walking.. We had a "woucher" deal and... More

Food wasn't great and my sweet was completely different to what was advertised! Breakfast was ok apart from the mushrooms being cold! I am glad I didn't pay... More
