“Fantastic place... We'll be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stayed here for two nights Whist up to run the River Ness 10k run... Upon arrival we were met first by Joe the Dog & then by Heather who got us settled in quickly. Joe is a great dog, as lomg as you're throwing the ball for him!

The twin room was very nice and had everything needed to for a comfortable stay.

We had dinner both evenings & I must say the food was excellent, especially the Steak Pie on Sunday! Just what we needed after the running. Breakfast both days was also very good with the choice of cereals and full scottish breakfast.

The bar was ideal and rhe locals very freindly. Overall an excellent stay and we look forward to coming back.

I stayed here for three nights with my father while we were salmon fishing on the fairburn estate, We was greeted by Heather the owner and what a lovely lady she is, we were shown to our room and left to settle in, our room was of a good size with a modern decor, we had a twin room with a view out of the front of the building, we went down and had a drink in the bar where it didn't take long to strike up some good conversation with some friendly local gents, we ate for two of the nights here and the food was lovely with roast pork one night and haggis the next. Breakfast is ace and a wide choice to be had all rounded of with lashings of hot tea and toast. From what I could gather the place was very run down when Heather took it on and boy has she put a lot of money and time into this with good results. Would I stay here again......... Yes without a doubt.well done and keep up the good work.
