“An unexpected stay at the Achilty hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Finding myself unexpectedly stranded in Cotin one night last December
I was welcomed to the lovely friendly hotel of Ethel Slater and her husband
Although closed for the winter they kindly welcomed me and provided me with a lovely meal, lots of kindness and a nice bed and breakfast
I highly recommend this hotel to all
And take this opportunity to thank them both most sincerely
Jenny Stewart

We had a lovely clean and light room, lots of space and very comfortable bed. We think this B&B is a little gem! it has one of the best breakfasts in the Highlands and the hosts are really friendly too.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the Hotel will be quieter as we were on the front and next to the main road. No...

Once again the review is not what one calls exact.
My Wife was not rude to this person .
Why did the Gentleman not request a change of room at the time?
We have same sex couples staying all the time in double rooms.
Ours is not to reason why!!!!!!!!!!!
I have said on many occassions that anonymous reviews are rather unfair

While driving up to this B&B, the weathered sign had fallen down and been set on the ground, making me a bit worried about what I was in for. However, the stay turned out to be lovely and just what I would expect from a B&B. The decor is more than a bit dated, and the layout of the building is a bit strange, but everything was clean and otherwise well-presented.

We were visiting for a wedding about a mile up the road, and the proprietor of the B&B even gave us a ride to where the reception was being held. The staff was overall very friendly and accommodating. It's a reasonable place to stay.

We stayed for five nights. It is only a B&B. the owner's partner died and the couple, the Slaters, could not cope with a restuarant as well. However Mr Slater, with40 years in the hotel business, produces an excellent breakfast and the rooms are well equipped - What a change to find a shower of good pressure, good heat and space to move. Bedrooms a good size. Good Value overall.

He is a bit of a control freak - but in the nicest way. Recommended

This accommodation is not a hotel, and from the information on 'google' etc this is not clear. It is definitely a B&B, although it used to be a hotel. I arrived expecting to be able to have a drink from the bar etc, and perhaps a snack, and so was disappointed. As a B&B it was fine. I had a friendly welcome, and the room, although a bit dated, was fine and very adequate. There was some noise from the main road outside. The breakfast was good, and had an unexpectedly good choice. The value was average. Some of the notices in the room etc were a bit officious and not very friendly. The place is up for sale, and I guess the present owners are running it as a B&B until they can find a buyer. However, I found nothing wrong with the accommodation, and if I was looking fro a B&B would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: If they have rooms which are not to the front of the building, then go for one of these to avoid the...
