I spent a night here on my way back to my home in Worcestershire after visiting my daughter in Kintyre, Argyll. I remembered it with pleasure from a previous stay 5 years ago. The room was spacious and comfortable, bathroom well-equipped and convenient, and there was a seemingly new and excellent TV. I had a good dinner in the Thornhill Inn, nearby. For breakfast, always willing to try something new, I chose the 'Gillbank Special', which was herring with onion and hard-boiled egg. Delicious! The Danish owners are most welcoming and friendly.
