Stayed here on a voucher offer, I expected the usual older highland hotel and that was what we got, creaky floorboards rooms a bit tired round the edges but all in keeping with the age of the hotel. The welcome we received was good and were given an upgraded room on the first floor as requested, not the best view but the room was of a good size and clean and welcoming, the bathroom was large with a roll top bath and separate shower all very clean and really quite smart, we slept very well in the comfortable bed. The Bistro bar and lounge were very comfortable to sit in (bar prices a bit high-on par with city hotels) but the service was great from very pleasant staff and decided to dine there instead of going through to restaurant. We enjoyed the food especially the 'curry night special'. The breakfast choice was great, I had the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon mmm, my husband had the full Scottish one morning then the smoked haddock with poached egg the next , both were excellent, great service again from the staff. We enjoyed our stay here and also had a trip on the steam railway, great stuff.
