“We was deceptioned. A swindle”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2008

In spite of the fact that in their website have three stars of the scottish tourist board, the truth is that it is a SWINDLE (you can send a email to visitscotland and you can to verify).
This b&b is dirty, old, smell to Dampness......HORRIBLE! dont let to be deceptive.

I would like to apologise for any confusion caused by our website. We recently took over the business and with that inherited the website. Following your response I have ensured that the Visit Scotland logo and rating have been removed. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay but feel your overall assesment is very harsh. Yes, the building is old (about 200 years) and with this come some challenges which we have addressed. The B&B is not and definitely was not dirty in any way. We are working hard to improve the standards since we took over and each year we progress further with our refurbishment. We receive a lot of positive feedback and returning guests which is a sure sign that things cannot be as dire as you suggest!
