We enjoyed our stay at the Gordon Arms so much that we decided to stay longer. There was a very pleasant and comforting ambience throughout the whole experience. All of the staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms were very comfortable and well maintained and had all the facilities that anyone would need. The food was outstanding and this was... More

This hotel is much bigger on the inside than it appears from outside and from discussions with our travelling companions the rooms may vary in standard from one area to another. Our room was dated and seemed to be for a 1970s business man - large with wood panelling and plenty of desk space to work on. It also had... More

We stayed there for a "wedding workshops" with my future husband and with our dog. We chose that place because it was pet friendly. Inside is a bit dated, bathroom very noisy but as long as You're not fussy too much about inside You should be happy. Very friendly service, was able to advice about walks, and things to see...

Surprised to see so many negative reviews regarding the restaurant ,we stopped in for dinner on the way back from Aberdeen and I have no complaints, it is what it is, a small village hotel relying on mainly passing and tourist trade, if anything its slightly dated but perfectly acceptable. We both had soup to start and the Cullin skink... More

We took my parents out for a meal here. It used to be a regular haunt of mine but I'm afraid the hey-day seems to have passed. The service was erratic to say the least & it didn't seem to be that busy. Sadly, the meal experience didn't make up for it as the food was just ok. Even at... More
