Where to begin....arrived at my suite with wallpaper literally peeling off the wall. Lovely view of the dumpster at the back of the hotel, but seemed clean and was in our budget. Hit the lightswitch, and took out not only the power in our room, but at least part of a couple of others. We were moved to a small... More

I stayed in the White Hart for three nights last week and it was my first stay since the hotel was last renovated around fifteen years ago. I booked with trepidation following some of the TA reviews but found my room as I remembered it all those years ago, including the weird plumbing system. Granted the carpet had seen better... More

I can't even begin to explain how awful our experience was here. We entered for dinner, asked for a table.. When we confirmed we had not booked we could here mutterings about us being an inconvenience and how the chef was not happy .. There was about 6/7 people around however I got the impression what they wanted was to... More

We have stayed at the White Hart during Feis week for the last 6 years. We love staying here. The staff are the best - really friendly, helpful and hardworking. The breakfasts are amazing (and just what you need before a day of distillery visiting!). The island is jam packed with tourists for Feis week, but the hotel still manages... More

So this review is for the restaurant only. We decided to go there after viewing the menu online. Talk about a bait and switch - the menus presented to us were more bar menus - I asked about the lamb that was on the online menu and was just told they don't have it The starters arrived - one of...

Faulty Towers but without the comedy. lower any expectations you might have for this hotel it will lessen the disappointment when you get there. looks like it's been run by teenagers who have never heard of the concept of customer service. breakfast unpleasant experience. plastic pillows yes you read right plastic which you will get stick to your face in...

The hotel was ok for the one night. Room was clean and comfy if a little tatty.,the view from the room was beautiful so that made up for the dated decor. The hotel wants a lot of money spending on it. However the staff were very helpful and friendly and the dinner was good. Breakfast was great, lovely poached eggs!... More

I have only given this hotel 1 star because I can't go any lower. We stayed here for one night and that was more than enough. I can't think of anything good to say. The hotel is very dowdy and dark, some of the carpets were filthy. The staff were very poor and didn't seem to care a jot. The... More

I thought shared toilet and bathrooms were a forgotten chapter in Scotland, but am sorry to say that I got into a surprise here:-( Single room, only £60 a night, but that was in fact a stiff price.. The room had a wall-to-wall carpet with a large stain of "something" in the middle. Trying to fall asleep in the evening... More

Good points: Great breakfast, even if the milk is plonked down in its original carton. Warm bedrooms, clean towels, hot water. Evening meal hot, but not hugely imaginative. Nice enough lounge bar but a bit cold and too close to the gents' toilets. Pleasant bar staff. Good position on main street. Bad points: stood at reception waiting to check in... More
