“nice hotel”
Reviewed March 8, 2011

this inn is ideally located on the main street heading for inverness, there is adequate parking. you do have to book in, in the main bar. our room was nicely decorated and the lovely elephant shaped towels on the beds was a nice touch!
the en suite bathroom was fine, apart from the shower....very poor pressure and warm water meant a poor shower!
the walls are very thin, and even with the window shut, we could still here traffic quite loud (and we had a room to the rear of the property!)
we didnt eat our main meal at the pub, but there seemed a good selection of food!
we did have breakfast in the morning, there didnt seem much choice....you were offered a cooked breakfast......(which was quite greasy)........and as commented by others the toast was white, and thick cut)
we never met the owners wife, but we did chat to the land lord and he seemed very nice!
just minor comments made, but it is these small details that customers notice!
i would stay again tho.......as long as the shower issues were rectified!!

Unfortunately we choose to stay here for one night, a BIG MISTAKE..After booking at the Bar, we made our way up the filthy stairway,looked like the stairs had never seen a Hoover in months, and the carpet was torn and well worn, We then went to the room which was'nt too bad at first until a fould smell appeared to come from the toilet area, which was also a bit grubby looking, the smell got so bad we decided to eat out in a restaraunt in the town, we came back too the same FOUL SMELL..it was so bad my wife kept wakening up during the night and did get much sleep, We went downstairs and had Breakfast which was ok,and served by friendly staff..we complained about the smell, but the person did'nt seem to interested.After Breakfast we went the dingy stairway to our room, packed and got out of that hole, certainly the worst of all the Hotels we stayed in during our tour of the North.

If you are on a tight budget, this place will do. Registering for a room at the pub is a little tacky and unnerving for a woman. Room was clean but no water pressure. A little like a university dorm room.

Plus points- white fluffy towels, good breakfast
Room 1 the purple one- wasnt very clean - required a good going over. All very tired and sad- I havent seen as bad a (very small) bathroom for a long time- no mirror- not easy to shave, no where to hang a towel or put a toothbrush down -wash hand basin minescule-toilet bowl needed a scrub and toilet seat cover wouldnt stay up- try it! shower awful -hot or cold no in between , trickle or a bit more.... window wouldnt close properly. could write your name in the dust on the tv stand nor had the mirrors in the bedroom been polished for a while and covered with hand prints and dust - taxi driver said "new owners" well they have a lot of work to do

We stopped for an overnight stay on our tour of Scotland. The staff were very friendly and the food was very good. Had an evening meal and breakfast. No complaints at all. Guy the owner looked after us very well. We found the place clean and tidy and very reasonably priced. Would go back again if we go back to Scotland again.
