We spent one night during our travel around Scotland. Good location for visiting Speyside. Breakfast is good - there is a nice choice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is good hotel although a bit of refurbishment would be good.

We only stayed for one night while walking the Speyside Way. We enjoyed our stay here, good location, and the staff was very friendly and serviceminded. It´s a littlebit dated, but good enough, even though we would have enjoyed better beds and pillows.

Had a meal in the restaurant with a few friends. The food was good with a varied menu and the Staff were very pleasant. The entrance to the hotel could put people off going in as it is a bit dated although the bar was busy serving meals so it obviously does not deter the majority.

Lovely staff Lorna and Maureen made our stay pleasurable and nothing was too much trouble. They are the true gems here and management really needs a big wake up call. Please buy new beds and get rid of the appalling saniflo loos which whizz & whine all night long. Updates for the very tired menu:- 1) tinned grapefruit and prunes... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in June, While it is not a fancy hotel by any means, it is very quaint and "local". One cannot expect a 5 star resort in a little town in Scotland. The room was clean and that is the most important factor for me. It is clear that the hotel was built prior to indoor... More

This hotel's beds (at least in my room) are the worst I have ever tried to sleep in. They are just a bunch of wire coils covered in a thin layer of material and placed on top of a rickety, squeaky frame. Bathrooms were nice enough, but everything else is likely from the early 1980s. Breakfast was good, but for... More

Firstly this is 100% genuine. I have stayed here in the last few weeks with colleagues. The hotel is quite frankly run down and needs a major update from top to bottom. The staff were lovely and to be commended.Meals were very good in the restaurant although we didnt like seeing the chefs sitting out the back of the hotel... More

Stayed for 2 nights whilst touring the area. The bedroom was very adequate and clean and had a super shower with big towels to use. The evening meals and breakfasts were nicely cooked and good value. The staff in the hotel were friendly and polite and a credit to the management

Stayed here for one night whilst on business. We travelled with our two dogs. We were welcomed by very friendly staff who fussed the dogs and my partner. Room was spacious and spotless. We opted to eat in the bar as we could take the dogs. Food was home cooked and plenty to choose from. I must said the barmaid... More

Stopped here for one night whilst walking the Speyside Way with my husband and our dog. Staff were nice, room very comfortable and they allowed our dog into the Ghillies bar which was a nice touch. Breakfast good in the morning for setting you up for the day. Could do with some updating in the rooms but was more than... More
