Stayed here in July and can only presume the other reviewers were here in a warmer season - it was defo parky and the hot air machine was labouring - unsuccessfully - to get the place warm. Lovely big garden shed type structure - must be nice in the summer - but the high ceilings maybe make it difficult to heat in the winter.
The hut was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Kitchen had everything we required, TV worked and the shower blasted out hot water so no complaints there. Books and games were available to while away the long winter nights.
The place is off the main road and quiet enough. Dark access at night so bring a torch and watch out for that slippy top step - whoo-hoo! how we laughed...
The hotel at the top of the street has a bar where apparently Murchison's only evening entertainment - the pool table - is kept. I let slip to the (surly) barmaid that it was very decent of them that the table was giving free games which turned out to be a surprise to her - she immediately shut that down! So if any of the locals had been keeping that little perk a secret, sorry!
