Owners John and Ursula were very friendly - we repaired to the lounge each day after sightseeing, and they were interested to hear what we had done that day, and provided us with interesting history and tidbits on the places we had been to that gave us some context on the day's events.
We spent 3 days here after having walked for 2 weeks together (me, my sister and her husband) on the West Highland Way and the Great Glen Way. We were sharing a room, and called 2 days before our arrival to see if they had another - we were worried about sharing such close quarters after having been together so much for 2 weeks. They had no more rooms, but to our surprise, when we were welcomed by John on our arrival (by name - he came outside to greet us as we disembarked from our cab), he told us they had switched us into a family room, which turned out to be at no extra cost.
It was a great room - ceilings twice as high as me, at least, and 3 beds, so I could sleep across the room from the couple, not beside them.
The location was wonderful - we were able to walk pretty much everywhere, and only took cabs when it was raining.
Breakfasts were good too - after 2 weeks at B&Bs we were tired of the full Scottish breakfast, so after the first morning switched to the continental, or whatever they call it - fruit, yogurt, cereal, cheese and croissant - just delightful after all those eggs and sausages. And the portions were very generous.
I recommend this hotel very highly - would love to stay there again.
