Visit Goblin Ha again last night. Food as usual very tasty. Calamari. Crispy and not greasy. BBQ Burger had great flavours along with accompaniments. Homemade coleslaw fantastic. Great choose of food for adults and kids alike. Waiter was so friendly to the children who loved popping outside to the 'secret garden ' after courses.

The decoration of the room was very tired and the light-pull above the bed was loose from the ceiling. The only socket for use with the kettle (and hair-drier) was at skirting board height and the cable... More

Let me start by saying I know that the majority of the hotel is an old building which has it's charm. However my gripe is with the modern extension. I've seen sooo many reviews here where people bring up very valid points about the place being unclean or dated only to have their views shot down by the managers go... More

We had a great time here. We were in that neck of the woods for a meeting and to take in the Royal Highland show (the show was excellent if your thinking of going next year - only 25 mins away). Very friendly and helpful staff, nothing to much trouble, food was excellent, we ate on two nights, both meals... More

We enjoyed our stay at Goblin Ha' - it was picked originally for location. I would pick it again for it's quality and friendliness. Staff were excellent and the food was good quality. The Director "Ozzie" went out of his way to make sure we were happy with everything. Our room was on the small side but as we were... More

Hello Dahling! Really chuffed that you enjoyed your trip to the countryside! You clearly know what you are talking about and are of course right - our team take immense pride in what we do and how we do it. Service and atmosphere are at least as important as freshly prepared food at the Goblin Ha' but we pride ourselves... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Goblin a few times now and I have never been one for writing reviews but I feel I must make an exception this time. When we arrived the bar and restaurant were very busy, but we were immediately made to feel welcome. After we had settled in to our room we decided... More
