1 word: Fantastic.
The service, the quality, the dining experience are brilliant. The "Wee Double" room we stayed in was a bit small, especially the bathroom due to the roof. I'm 5' 10" and had to tilt my head at quite an angle to use the toilet, which means anyone taller would've had to sit. But this did not detract from an overall amazing experience. The lounge became our place of preference to relax after a day's visiting around the sea lochs. The staff were knowledgeable about single malt whiskeys and friendly, efficient with their service. Beth McLeod added a real touch of class to our stay with her genuine hospitality and has a real wealth of knowledge on the "local" area not contained in the pamphlets available - her recommendations of restaurants were spot on.
Overall, great and well worth the price tag. Rosie and Molly (the 2 Scottish Border Collies) were an added, unexpected bonus - we ran them ragged at least twice while we were there and they picked up on this so we were greeted with much aplomb whenever we came down from our rooms.
