We stayed in a double on the top floor, on the smaller side but it was perfectly adequate for a weekend with a good shower and wash basin and a toilet just down the... More

Recently stayed for two nights with my husband. It was everything we wanted. We stayed in room 1, with a full en suite, at the front of the house. Spotlessly clean, spacious, really comfy king size bed, lovely furnishings and lamps which made it feel nice and cosy, plenty of storage area. We could hear the traffic but it wasn't... More

We were welcomed by a lovely, friendly host called Kevin who couldn't do more to help and make us feel welcome! We stayed in the 'Double room with a shower'. The room was comfortable and a good size, with everything you... More

Friendly welcome form Kevin who gave us ideas where to eat this side and told us some good pubs to frequent. The room wasnt ultra modern but it was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Breakfast excellent,... More

A late booking to break up the drive from Aberdeen we were lucky enough to grab the last available room - lacking an en-suite bathroom but with a very effective shower squeezed into the corner the room was fine and the bed very comfortable. The toilet was only just down the hall and we were the only people using it.... More
