    Very friendly and comfortable

    We decided, on the spur of the moment to drive to Scotland during our stay in the mid-lands. Initially I was focused on finding a place in Edinburgh but this place popped up as an option (it's south by about 40 min). It seemed like a good alternative given the location and price and reviews. Indeed, we were very glad to have chosen the place - so comfortable and the managers (owners?) were super nice even though we were a late check in and hadn't communicated our arrival time because I didn't see their e-mail until after the fact. The room was old-school (though with a modern bathroom) but really, really comfortable. Breakfast was a big plus as well. If you are looking for a traditional place but without the downsides that often exist with very old properties this is it. Would certainly stay here again.

    Outstanding!

    Staff are amazing, rooms are all refurbished, modern and just lovely to be in, Towels are all soft and have that home smell and not like a hotel where they can be scratchy etc. Food is also of great quality. Brand new quality beds with amazingly soft pillows, duvet etc I had a magnificent nights sleep!. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there albeit on business i would and will definitely stay again!. Keep up the great work guys you have a lovely place there xx,
