Lovely older style hotel. It was roomy and well equipped with modern conveniences. The sleeping area was large enough for sofa, chair and table with two chairs where breakfast was served, if requested. Large updated bathroom. Well cared for property. We’d stay there again!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Beautiful accommodation
Beautiful rooms and public areas. Shame not to hear any Scottish voices amongst the staff, some of whom had limited English. Breakfast shown misleading. Our bathroom was dated and tired and had obviously had repairs badly finished. A fair walk for town and restaurants - I add at least 50% to Google maps time allowances for pedestrians.
