We had to recently spend 7 days at the "Ferintosh", following our house having major repairs. Our hosts- Emma and Robertson catered to our every need- nothing was too much trouble to them. For what they charge, the 'extras' such as dressing gowns, toiletries, sweets and biscuits, make a stay here excellent value. Extremely dog-friendly. Can recommend a stay here... More

Stopped by chance, hosts had great knowledge of places to eat and drink, enjoyed a peacefull stay and reasonable rates for the night, breakfast cooked well. Emma & Robertson are good hosts who made us feel more than welcome, good location for the town.

We were allowed to check in early which was nice. Hosts were very welcoming. Room was very clean and quiet (back of the house). Bed was OK. Nice to have coffee, tea, treats in our room. Generous breakfast with plenty of choices. Good location, easy to walk to town centre.
