Stunning gem of a place.
Booked as a stop-over en route to the Highlands, and we were blown away by The Black Bull Hotel. We had a lovely room with probably the most comfortable hotel bed we’ve slept in, and a beautiful, large en-suite. The food in the restaurant, for both dinner and breakfast, was fabulous. The entire place has been decorated and furnished superbly. Well worth the trip from Kent alone! Thank you Paul and the team. Brilliant work.
