I had an overnight stay at Rickwood House Hotel and it was a truly memorable experience. All other hotels should take note - this is how it should be done! Upon arrival I was given a warm welcome by the owners, Fred and Maggie - it's always re-assuring when things get off to a good start - and I was... More

Stayed for 3 nights, Comfortable and cosy spacious room. Just what you need to have a relaxing break in a Scottish harbour village. 3 minutes walk from the harbour up the hill but well worth the walk. Fred and Maggie are fantastic hosts and have all the local knowledge to make your stay more enjoyable. Really nice breakfast with extras.... More

Excellent bathroom space and meticulously clean. The dining room is light and airy and if you are lucky enough to get the window table, can... More
