            • Family with children

              Attractive front room and tavern area. Lovely dinning facility. Buffet breakfast option was nice. Our room was nothing special compared with others we stayed in across Scotland.

              I didn't like the atmosphere of the hotel portrayed by staff members. It was not a welcome hello after exploring the countryside and art treasures of Scotland all day long. Our presence felt like an interruption to the staff's routine, rather than a welcome opportunity to provide service. We spent three weeks touring Scotland and truly this was our only unfriendly experience. It was a beautiful front sitting area and dinning room, but not comfortable for a family traveling with a 17 year old to stay at. Perhaps only couples should be booked in?

              Hotel staff were warm and welcoming and the atmosphere was relaxed. We were attending a funtion nearby and only stayed the one night; but due to the lateness of our celebrations, failed to make breakfast the following morning. Unforutnately, I did not notice the offer to serve continental breakfast in your room until it was too late, but that would have been a nice touch. However, the dinner menu looked exquisite and I would definately like to try it out sometime soon. I would love to stay here again and would strongly recommend it to others!

              Nice Lodge with a great deck out back and a BBQ. Well equiped kitchen and comfortable lounge.

              Could have had something on site for the kids - a swing set or a climbing frame would have been great.

              The space in the house. Didn't expect it to be that big. We've only payed 100€ a night, which was a very fair price. Shower was realy nice.

              Television didn't work. The batteries of the remotes had run out. After the first night, we asked to replace them, but they didn'T.

              We were given a double room instead of a twin but we were quite happy with the double

              All hotels in this area are expensive. Full Breakfast at £12.50 is not out of line, but far too much for simple breakfast.
