I stayed here for 6 nights. Granted, I'm not very picky: a hotel for me is not a destination per se, rather its where I pass out at the end of the day, but I had no complaints about this hotel. Yes, it's "quirky" and not static like a chain hotel, but it's got character and is neat and well kept. It's a short (15-20) minute walk from the village center. I never saw a staff person who did not smile and greet me. Even when I ran into them "downtown" they smiled and said "Hello!" There are several walks you can take if you have a few minutes, and the woods behind the hotel are a nice quiet scenic hike with a small brook. There's not much traffic passing, so it's pretty quiet even in the loch view rooms facing the road. I regret to say I did not eat in the restaurant (I eat at odd hours) but the food smelled delicious! My only other regret is that I did not take advantage of the outdoor activities offered by the hotel. (I had my own agenda to attend to this trip) but when I return in the future, I will be sure to take advantage of this service. It's a good place to use as "base camp" to explore the highlands as there are many attractions with a driveable range. For a first trip to Scotland, I was not let down or disappointed.
