Well I have only been here one night so far out of two but I feel this place is absolutely brilliant. The warmth of welcome is typical Scottish welcome (best in the world). The bed is perfect, nice and soft and warm. En-suite has everything you need even the little things you tend to forget. Breakfast is a pleasurable experience....

We stayed there on May 14th for two nights; even changing our holiday route to get the same room as last year. The hosts were again very hospitable and offered a welcome cup of tea on arrival. The room was clean and tidy with comfy beds and en-suite bathroom. Enough space to store your luggage and belongings. The breakfast was...

We booked one night based on reviews we had read on Trip Advisor and other websites. Whilst the hosts were very welcoming and accommodating we did not think the accommodation warranted 4 stars. We were in the upstairs room which was up a steep narrow staircase.Whilst the room had a pretty view of the river, the room was OK but...

We had a fantastic time while at Ghillies Lodge. It was a little unfortunate that there was construction right by the very tight driveway but overall highly recommended. Thank you!!

We only booked in here by chance, based on price and what Expedia.com.au had on offer at time. Wow, were we lucky. It really is "the best" and ideally located. Just don't take a big car!

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at Ghillies Lodge, and I must say that it was a wonderful experience. Our room was very spacious and well equipped with the most fantastic view of the river and one of the islands. Cleanliness was unquestionable and comfort was second to none. Breakfasts consisted of a selection of fresh fruit,...

Room was well sized, with a big ensuite. Breakfast was lovely, and eating it looking out over the river made it taste even better!

The hosts were pleasant and offered great advice, the breakfast was delicious, easy walk following the river to downtown, quaint cottage-like feel, beautiful location along the river, large rooms, very comfortable beds. Probably the best sleep we had on our entire trip! Would have loved to stay longer!

Although first impressions of Ghillies Lodge are not great (garden/porch a little scruffy, parking tight, room- floral print, faded/stained furniture and doilies!) I actually loved my one night stay here. The room has a very large window overlooking the river, easy walk into town, very cosy room, lovely little en suite, big fluffy towels, freeveiw, tea and coffee in room......
