We booked here through a third party booking site and were very excited about out Highlands adventure. We had booked a family room and it was well over a hundred pounds.

It's located in a lovely area close to many things but far enough away from the city so you can have a beautifully relaxing vacation. Great service, good price, very tasty breakfast, and nice rooms. The rooms are a but dated but... More

After 12 hours of travelling arived at this unique hotel in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Rooms are clean and comfortable, friendly staff, brilliant food. And could end a long day in the bar with a few beers and a good whisky and a warm fire. Perfect stay!

I must admit, after reading some reports on tripadvisor we were a little apprehensive about our stay here, but this dissipated almost as soon as we had walked in the door. The receptionist was delightful, we were greeted with a lovely warm welcome. The open fire in the lounge/library area was a nice touch too. The room we got for... More

I really wish I had paid a little more and stayed down the road. The visit was for business and pleasure. When we arrived... More

Quaint & charming only go so far when heated by a space heater,,that shuts off every 2 hours. Imagine our surprise when we found our freezing room could only be heated by getting up in the middle of the night FOUR times to restart the heater ? Absurd!
