After reading some reviews we didn't have high hopes, but we were pleasantly surprised by the room. You have your own acces from the back so you don't need to go through the pub if you don't want to. The fitting in the room all appeared to be new, and very warm and comfortable. I would definitely go back. Staff... More

Stayed here one night whilst on Speyside Way. Agree with all said before. Ideal location for us. No complaints about the room. Spacious and clean. Entry and exit through the public bar was a bit intimidating. Breakfast OK but breakfast room in need of TLC.

The entrance through the public bar was pretty off putting, we were led through the back, past the kitchen and outside to another building. Our room was large and was clean. The en suite shower was good but there was mould climbing up the wall! The Breakfast... More

We've stayed in some shabby pubs & this was a wonderful change! From the pub entrance it did not look like anything special, but the rooms were in a separate wing behind the pub - spotlessly clean & very comfy. No noise. The pub does not do food but they recommended a nearby restaurant which was great. Breakfast was in... More
