Just got back from a return visit to this very special place. There's always a concern that returning won't match up to the first visit but not a bit of it. We stayed 2 nights and found it even better than before. Not only are the rooms extremely comfortable and beautifully appointed but the staff are so professional and yet... More

We took one of the suites which was absolutely delightful...with some very nice individual touches. The view from the rooms were stunning. The staff were immaculate, very professional but friendly...

Found this hotel quite by accident when we were looking for somewhere to stay for one night en route from Glasgow to the Isle of Skye and what a gem it is!!

Pros: Welcoming and friendly staff. Comfortable but not pretentious rooms. Lounges and bar relaxing . Restaurant with great views whatever the weather. Good breakfast with table service. Excellent evening dining. Cons: Very poor internet (hence only 4 stars) and no mobile signal - great if that is what you are looking for, otherwise quite stressful!

I am aware of the Hotel and Restaurant's fine reputation and our Dinner did not disappoint. Professional service serving a fine Dinner.

The pictures on the website do not show that the road is just at the front of the hotel with the garden the other side of the road, however after 2 minutes you realise that the hotel chairs and tables are there because the road is extremely quiet and it doesn't cause any deterioration in the enjoyment of this hotel....
