The travel lodge is a converted cinema with compact rooms which, together with the ensuite bathrooms are spotlessly clean. We got a warm welcome, including scones, and were served a delicious breakfast in the morning. It offers excellent value for money.

Great place to stay, quiet, spotless and comfortable rooms,pleanty of hot water and a great choice of breakfast The owners Jim and Ellie are very attentive and friendly, we can recomend Empire Lodge to everyone requiring a good bed and breakfast at a very reasonable price Not sure about the internet only because we didn't require it.

Family room was clean and just what we needed - double bed and two full-size singles in a decent space. The breakfast was good and the hosts were excellent. Limited private off-road parking. No communal lounge, but books and DVDs available to take to room.

Great service, engaged hosts and good enough to give up a trip to Islay in order to stay another day. Rooms are clean an well maintained, friendly engaged owners, and a fine breakfast! You will be missing an opportunity if you drive by think there is a better spot down the road.

I've used this accommodation many years ago, the new owners couldn't be more helpful. The rooms are large and bright, the breakfast ingredients were of a good quality. I've paid twice as much elsewhere for lower quality accommodation. Excellent value.

I stayed for two nights for business in Oct 2016. I stayed in room 7. Overall I agree with the vast majority of reviews here and I feel this place is excellent value for money. 'Travel Lodge' is an excellent name - it is more the quality of a Travellodge chain hotel or Premier Inn than a B&B. Rooms are...

Good value for a double room and breakfast. Had everything we could have needed (e.g. iron and ironing board, hairdryer, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits!) Quiet location and very pleasant stay.

I have to say I really enjoyed my time here, mainly due to the hosts and the amazing breakfasts. But, I can't allow my heart to rule my head when it comes to this review and I feel I have to highlight some flaws. My room had a horrible smell of damp and it was evident the moment I walked...
