This hotel is badly run, poor cleanliness, expensive to eat and drink in and outdated décor. The owner doesn't seam to like complaints but I guess she gets loads of them

When in Scotland you have to try a whiskey!! The bar in this place had a shelf full of every whiskey you can think of. Plenty of TV to watch the sport(the welsh cheered when Italy scored)(soon silenced!!!)

A surprisingly quiet hotel- given it's location on the main road. Food was good but not brilliant., very adequate breakfast but average + bar meals. I believe that this hotel caters for bus... More

The HOTEL IS VERY WELL RUN. IT IS A FAMILY BUSINESS., the owners. Are a remarkable people, so friendly, they cannot do enough for you. The rooms are nice, the bed was comfortable. It is lovely for an one -3 days. Why not give it a try. I am still puzzling out how the toast machine work!!!!!!!!!!
