4/10 Fair

Very disappointed with room.
Requested an early check in due to attending a wedding-the room had not been cleaned, the shower curtain was vile, black with mould, paint pealing off the radiator & walls, the decor dated and shabby.

8/10 Very good

Kind of eclectic quiet hotel
It is a good quirky hotel overall. Comfortable room in a quiet little town.

6/10 Good

Clean,but tired room, great staff, awful breakfast
Decent value room but needed maintenance and upgrading- scuffed walls, dated and thin, cheap curtains. Breakfast food quality was poor and presentation was appalling ( hot items were stone cold and badly cooked e.g. Potato scones I couldn't cut and certainly could not eat). Staff were very good both at reception and in the restaurant

Lovely stay and very helpful friendly staff. Village is worth a visit. A bit off the beaten track but is one of Scotland’s hidden gems.

2/10 Poor

This is now a Coach Party Hotel. As an independent full priced guest you are simply an inconvenience to them and their business model. I could not get an evening meal as the facility was entirely set out for the Coach Parties. I couldn't get breakfast at 7am because breakfast did not start until 7.30am when the restaurant would doubtless be set up for.......guess who?
