Based on the web site I would suggest that good is a fair rating for this B & B. No sign of Richard but Celia was always about and seemed to do everything. Perhaps this was why her initial greeting was a little abrupt.Our inability to find out how to lock the bedroom door and our initiative to lock the outside door and take the key for a couple of hours did not savour favour either as it turned out the neighbouring room's occupants could not get in. A little explanation about the doors and dodgy locks would have resolved this issue. (Later even found out the key and lock issue is in the hotel guide!)
Rooms were lovely and clean, fresh and pleasant. The Creole Room does not as it says have a bathroom. It has a shower room which is very small. Food was lovely (perhaps the starter was a little meagre) and feeding the 12 guests with the same fare for 3 courses should have delivered the meal for a little less than £28 a head. No waste and very local produce should mean better vfm. No complaints about the wine and bar prices. All pretty reasonable and nice range of whiskies. The lounge/drawing room was comfortable too and ideal for coffee. Staff were first class. Breakfast, ordered after the main meal the night before, was excellent although the staff struggled to get them out quickly to eat together. No waste there either other than the food that was left by some who could not eat the full Scottish. Loads of tea and toast on demand and the fruit juice and cereals and fruit were varied and tasty. Celia was more relaxed on our departure and appeared to have got over the key issue! She's actually a charming hostess who would appear to have far too much to do! Would we return. Probably just to soak up more of the estate and try some shooting and fishing..
