We've been using this hotel, both as guests and diners for over ten years now, during which time it's seen a few changes of both ownership and fortunes.
Last time we stayed, we found the room rather cold, this was four years ago, but we only paid £10 a night for the room anyway! Since then, the owners are working hard to refurbish the rather dated accommodation, but funds are rather limited, so they're doing it properly, one room at a time. In the meantime they're accommodating guests at their sister hotel, the Ship Inn at the other end of the High Street.
We stayed a few years ago for the Hogmanay Ceilidh - quite simply the best party we've ever been to, bar none!
What is consistently good at the Murray Arms is the food, it is absolutely fantastic! We have never had a bad meal, whether it be breakfast (when staying), lunch or dinner. A very varied menu, including the staple haggis, neeps and tatties. Our last meal was dinner on 29th Sept, we had the restaurant to ourselves, but the food and service were excellent.
What this hotel lacks in glitz is more than made up for by its quirky character, which it has in spades, and wonderful, friendly staff for whom nothing is too much trouble.
As I said in the heading, don't knock it, getting the Murray Arms back to its former glory is a huge job, and they're working extremely hard at it.
