The menu had excellent specials with the use of local ingredients and also a good light bites/lunch snacks menu. The beer was good and they were both child and... More

Fantastic night at the Kames Hotel - staff were excellent, couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Dinner and breakfast were both top notch. Room had magnificent view and was terrific value for money. Only disappointment was we were only there for one night but will definitely be back.

Stayed at the Kames between Christmas and New Year and had a lovely time. Owners and staff were very helpful and went out of there way to make our stay an enjoyable one. We visit this area often and have stayed in the kames before and we will hopefully stay again in the near future.

Stayed here over New Years, had a fantastic time, great mix of locals and visitors. The hotel put on a lovely display of fireworks and a piper for the bells. We have stayed here a number of times and the owners and staff could not be more accommodating, they will go out their way to make sure you have a... More

My favourite place to stay. Warm welcome as always, perfect location, good food and drink. If you want to get away from it all .... This is the place to go. Thanks again Pat, Shelly and everyone at Kames.
