Stayed here for a night with a friend. Super friendly staff, and although small, the twin room was spotless, as was the en-suite shower room. Plenty of towels and pillows, the only slight - very very slight - issue was that there were double sized duvets on single beds which made them a bit heavy and moving about in bed... More

We have returned here for 3 years now. We make it our stop on our driving holiday. It always feels like coming home. This time there was a huge coach group for dinner, but they worked beautifully to accommodate us, without us feeling crowded. Wonderful, warm hotel. Thank you again for the fun!

A great menu to cover most tastes . Recommend the haggis as a starter or as part of the "highland" steak. The house wines are excellent and reasonable. Open fires great winter visitors but the hosts give a warmer welcome all year round. Great friendly service.

The rooms attached to the pub are of varying ages, some quite modern others less so but closer to the bar and restaurant. My double room which I had as a single would have been very cramped for 2 people but the twin next door was larger. The Scottish breakfast was standard and the menu for dinner would satisfy most....

We had an evening meal here, on a Monday night in May 2016. We had beef stroganoff and macaroni, both were delicious and tasty. The dining area was lovely and clean and well maintained. The hosts were so friendly and it made for a great night out.
