5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family, Travelled with pets, Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Comfortable, clean and quiet. And most importantly, dog friendly. super freidnly and helpful staff. Breakfasts were tasty and good portions and choice. We had dinner one of the nights we stayed and it was delicious, especially the Apple Meltdown dessert! Finding a parking space was trying though - this was not the fault of the hotel though, but inconsiderte guests taking up two spaces to protect their precious 4x4's or campervans (thought the idea was to stayin the camper, not a hotel).

Another faultless stay
Visit twice a year, now for over 10 yrs, if room available wouldn't pass this Hotel by, room spotless, excellent Covid precautions, b/fast 10/10, staff friendly, excellent idea, no room cleaning, due to Covid precautions, but if anything required, toiletries, towels etc, phone reception, and new supplies brought to your room, obviously cuts down contact, from cleaning staff going from room to room, dining room tables well separated. Hotel bar closed to locals. Extremely busy when we stayed. Lovely quiet area, cheaper than Aviemore which is 12 mls away. Will we be back, you bet, Thanks to Cynthia, Manageress, and her team.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This place is stuck in a time warp. So dated that even I felt old!! Room was ok but paper cups and wooden stirrers fir your tea, Really!! The bar was a sad place to sit although the old guy behind the bar did his best. Food very average at best. Won’t be back!!
