Amazing and friendly staff. Great food and a comfy bed! Their hot chocolate was delicious! They checked us in early as our flight landed very early! Family owned and operated! I would stay again!

Exceptional 10.0
We stayed here on our last night in Scotland. I can't remember the girl who helped us when we checked in (think she might be a manager) but she was absolutely fantastic. Welcoming and so helpful. We had the room called Bowmore, very comfortable bed, nicely decorated and modern bathroom with rain shower. Went downstairs for dinner and was helped by the same lady, and when we explained we would be leaving very early next day to the airport offered to leave us a small continental breakfast outside our room door. Would definitely recommend & would stay again.
