Stayed for 7 nights on a highland bus tour. Being from South Africa and used to quite upmarket hotels, this particular hotel is rather tired and in great need of a bit of tlc especially the rooms and bedding. Perhaps the owner too comfortable with his constant stream of bus tours he has forgotten to keep up with the times.... More

We went to this hotel because of the trips that were offered, not realising how long it would take on the journey up. The trip that I had gone for was to go to Iona but unfortunately this was cancelled on the Saturday due to boat problems. Some of our group went on the Sunday which was officially our rest... More

This was our second Highland Heritage trip and although the first visit was less than good in some ways we decided to go again. This may sound contradictory but the location of the hotel is very convenient and the views across the bay, if you pay for a sea view, are really good. In addition the lengthy coach trip is... More

The hotel is 20 metres from the bay, beautiful views, hotel is not the modern style more the traditional Scottish decor. The staff were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The food was all local and fresh. There is entertainment on an evening. Or if like us you can sit in the quiet areas and chill. Heritage hotels... More
