Fabulous location, lovely garden and family friendly with a few toys for the kids to play with and great interconnecting rooms, such a shame the rooms are so outdated. Single glazed windows which didn't close properly so little bugs coming in and a few cobwebs around the ceiling just let it down so much. The staff were really lovely and... More

Nicely fitted rooms and bathrooms, all however on the small side. Friendly welcome and helpful staff. Located in a quiet and scenic area just off the main road and some distance from a town. Excellent breakfast.

we stayed two nights in the hotel . reasonably priced considering expensive Scotland. the restaurant was good. the hotel owner took personal care to get our breakfast ready and packed to go for our early morning departure. it was very kind of him. the other hotel staff were also very kind and helpful.

Spent a few nights here travelling with Canadian friends. Although there are aspects of the Brander Lodge which prevent it from being a five star stop over, these (jaded corridors, patchy Wifi) are minor structural flaws and cannot undermine the plentiful qualities of the hotel. The owners & staff are without doubt the hardest working bunch of people I've seen... More

We stayed here for only one night and would have loved to have stayed longer. We had our labrador with us and the glorious weather meant we could sit in the garden and enjoy the lovely setting. If weather had been bad we could have sat in the lounge area overlooking the garden. But I have to say the food... More
