“Excellent hotel is clean, comfortable, good food and friendly staff”
Reviewed May 22, 2010

Have just returned from 5 nights in the Star Hotel. Enjoyed it so much have booked a return visit for next month. Found it in the Sunday paper, was a bit wary because it seemed very cheap but checked it out on Trip Advisor and found lots of good reviews. Old fashioned type hotel which is exactly what you want in a small highland village. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. Good plain fare with choices for every course and plenty of it. Have to diet for the next 2 weeks. A little gem in a beautiful part of Scotland very central for touring around.

Have been at the Star four times, and have had to go on a diet on returning home.
How they are able to keep the prices so reasonable is fantastic.
The Hotel is dog friendly which is good for us.
Highly recommend a visit, while maybe old fashioned more than makes up with good hospitality.

The Hotel was old with no lifts sits on a street corner with traffic lights so is noisy at night.
The staff were friendly and helpful, wee had dogs they were welcome.
the food was not so good the meat was tough the roast potatoes were days old and rock hard. if you want a cheap hotel and don't mind the food it`s the place to stay

Hotel was old fashioned but lovely, rooms very clean.
Child friendly and the banquet was fantastic. Ive never ate so much in my life. The piped in haggis was an experience in its self. Also entertainment provided therefore no need to go elsewhere after dinner. Well worth a visit.
