James and Nelly were the perfect hosts. They couldn't do enough for us and were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We would definitely stay again. The hotel is by a main road but we didn't really notice the noise. The food was excellent particularly their fabulous haggis burger and a hearty breakfast sustained us as we climbed Ben Nevis! Any stargazers should check this place out too because on a clear night the view of the night sky is breathtaking!
We booked this as a convenient stop-over when travelling from the far North of Scotland down to the Midlands. The hotel was easy to find and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. There was plenty of car parking.
The breakfast was Ok and the evening meal reasonably priced and OK.
The Hotel is old and partly r re-fitted. The corridors are creaky and the lift - maybe Edwardian, has a job to take 2 people and a case. Its a lift with two concertina doors and is maybe not suitable for disabled people. The room was small and cramped. The bed had seen better days and I think new mattresses are needed. The bathroom was Ok for size but had only one functioning light bulb and was therefore dark. The shower cubical was very small although the shower worked fine with plenty of hot water. The shower etc. was clean.
The best aspects of this hotel are its convenient location, ample parking and the friendliness of the staff. We didn't pay a great deal so I suppose we got what we paid for.

Unfortunately we were unable to make use of the spa, which seemed very inviting. The room was lovely and spacious. The hotel was within walking distance with many sights to see and explore. Excellent for a weekend away.
Once again another great night at this hotel. Warm welcome from staff when arrived. Great food both at dinner and breakfast. Room was clean and comfy. Warm friendly evening sitting in bar with regulars that make you feel very welcome. Love this hotel great value can't fault it.
