The earl david has reopened today after years of neglect and poor owners, the couple who now run have put 8 months of time and effort to get this bar open again and almost ready to serve meals and hotel rooms are also being gutted and transformed best of luck to them

(And that is when I stopped looking behind the furniture). The desk was sticky. The carpet had dodgy stains.The soap tray in the shower had not been cleaned for ages. On... More

While visiting family in the village, we decided to nip in for a quick pint. What greeted us inside can only be described as howling. The bar was poorly lit and the air smelled damp and stale. The floors were filthy and i felt instantly unclean as soon as we walked in. The landlord needs to sack the cleaner or... More

Having visited this hotel for a few drinks whilst visiting family i must say i was disgusted. This place is a disgrace i am very surprised it has not been shut down by environmental health and that was just the toilets and restaurant/bar area never mind the rooms i dread to think what they are like!

Lovely, friendly hosts but sadly they are not in the right business. The building and room was not only dirty but literally falling apart in places. Our non-smoking room smelt of smoke and the door did not latch properly so we slept with a chair wedged against the back of the door. Could not see out of windows they were... More

I had booked this hotel for a family member to stay when visiting us, I had seen the room prior to booking and although it was in need of new decor and furniture it was at least clean. When we arrived to check in on Saturday it appeared that the room hadn't been cleaned since the day I had booked... More

Thumbs up!!! really had a great time... The owners have been exceptional hosts... very welcoming and you just feel at home immediately. Breakfast was a touch of Scotland and was served to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble and the best of all is that they shared many secrets no travel guide will tell you. We followed their advise along... More
