I booked this place for a number of reasons, I had some family business in the area, it was my wife's birthday and it had excellent reviews. Whilst I must confess to being somwhat sceptical of some trip advisor reviews whether they be bad or excellent preferring to believe the middle ground, this guest house is exceptional! From the moment of arrival with a pleasant welcome, a tour of the facilities and concise explanation of how everything worked. We stayed in the suite, seperate sitting room with reclining chairs, plentiful tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen TV with satellite receiver and excellent picture and stunning views across the estuary.
The bedroom was lovely with king-size bed and immaculately prepared with in addition, lovely fluffy towelling robes, watch out Hilton Hotels and we have stayed in a few of those on our travels.
I would struggle to find anything bad to say about this guest house. Sometimes proprietors advertise things on their web site that they cannot deliver, such as pictures of red squirrels, but here at Rosemount guess what!? On the afternoon we arrived and the next morning, there they were on cue feeding in the garden.
Breakfast was superb, plenty of it, all local produce and beautifully cooked.
As a local boy now living in Staffs I am often asked to recommend places to stay in Scotland. Having been away over thirty years I sometimes struggle, not anymore I would have no hesitation in recommending this little diamond, It really is superb.
