We just dropped in without a reservation as I was tired of driving. We got a really spacious room in which everything worked and which had a fine view of Loch Alsh. The receptionist insisted that we looked at the room before we checked in.
We ate some really fine fish in the bar, well cooked and great value. Breakfast contained everything you could think of to put on a plate and loads of it, agan really well cooked.
The staff were pleasant and efficient throughout.
And finally, because we had not booked I fully expected to pay the full rack rate and additional charge for breakfast displayed on the reception desk. The hotel came up with a significantly cheaper rate of its own accord. As in, they could have taken advantage of us but didn't. Bravo!
