What can I say about this place other than it’s AMAZING. Our ferry was cancelled due to covid so we had to find Accommodation at short notice. What an absolute gem of a place, the decor, level of comfort and welcome we received was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble, even providing breakfast at a time that suited us. A very restful nights sleep was had. The bathroom had shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided. The room was beautifully decorated and modern. Comfy beds! My son also forgot his iPad which they emailed us about straight away and have arranged for it’s safe return. At a time were the hospitality industry has really suffered i urge you to spend your hard earned money here! Fantastic surprise stop over and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this wonderful place!!! Thank you for making a stressful situation so enjoyable.

If you are staying more than one night and have any luggage at all, do not accept room 4. There is not one single hanger or hook for coats, clothes, towels etc, no floorspace to store luggage. But there is a king-size bed! which could be downsized to a double to at least leave a little bit of room. Please please please get some hooks in that room for your next customers and spare further embarrassment for your staff who have to apologise but can do no more.

Booked ages ago and had to be delayed due to several lockdowns. By the time we visited we weren't sure what to expect looking at reviews. We asked for a loch view room and it was absolutely fine. The decor is dark but the room was well appointed, clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. the bar and restaurant are great! Food excellent, wonderfully fresh seafood each evening. Our breakfasts were just right - the smoked salmon and eggs option just lovely. Staff were very helpful, and friendly and were keen to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. Thanks to all there - and the whisky advice was spot on!! Big thanks to you and we will be back for sure. Only one wee thing - no hooks in bathroom for towels, and that was all I could find to mention as an improvement in future. It would encourage not asking for fresh towels each day if they had a chance to dry out hanging up.

Pros: Friendly staff Views Restaurant ok Cons: Staff occasionally useless Rooms small, dark Breakfast ordinary. No, you can't have a cappucino It's ok, but don't even think about spending the money for a room without a sea view.
