I ended up in this 'neck of the woods' late evening hours and it was getting dark at the time, so therefore I really felt relieved, when the Hotel "popped up" out of nowhere and I simply stopped! I didn't actually see HOW filthy the room and the shower was, all I cared at that minute when I was shown...

She did arrive late evening, this rubbish about my rooms being dirty surprises me as she spent a good hour in the room before coming down stairs and reading a book in the bar, you would think might have mentioned then all she asked for was the wifi code which she could not get to work. Then in stead of...

I agree with some of the other reviewers, this place has the potential to be lovely. Brilliant location, lovely building but it needs a bit of modernising- not to the point it loses its charm but just to make it bit more comfortable. It has a lovely bar with a cosy fire but the bedrooms are all a bit worn...

Well this was a little gem found in the cold. Our host was friendly and accomodating to our needs. Fed us well that night with a delicious stew. The trick that we always rely on is that we are in their home so we are flexible and it was in low trade time so it was quiet. We found the...

Run-down place, depressing very small rooms where you can hear every move your neighbour makes, no place to sit quietly reading a book, the noise from the pub comes right up to the rooms, breakfast not before 09.00 o'clock which is very late considering that you are in the middle of the mountains and need hours to get anywhere by...

Myself and 4 mates stayed at the Allargue Arms in February and from start to finish it was an absolute blast! Whether it be from having a drink and a game of pool, to having breakfast, to organising our days out Euan (the owner) was more than happy to help out. The rooms are basic but cleaned every day, there's...

Well, it's been eight months and I've been avoiding writing this review ever since my stay. Why? I've been trying hard to think of a phrase which doesn't use the Americanism 'conflicted', and I can't , because that's exactly how I feel. I arrived on Bonfire night. The girl who took my booking advised me that rooms weren't available that...

If you ever fancy visiting this neck of the woods you won't come across much better hospitality. I came across it inadvertantly as I (unsuccessfully) tried to make my way to Inverness. Inside it might look basic, but Euan is a brilliant host and a superb cook. Highly recommended.

This is a traditional Scottish Pub/Hotel providing excellent value for money and great food. Portions are generous to say the least, and simply prepared from high quality local materials, and there's a great choice on the menu. The Monkfish Tails and Rib-Eye Steak were excellent indeed, and the traditional Scottish breakfast should set you up for the rest of the...

Stayed here for 1 night this month. Previous reviewer is right about the stink as you go up the stairs, like old damp carpet. Bedroom small and luckily at the back so avoided noisy bar full of young local lads. Food was good but same barmaid was waitress and breakfast host and seemingly chef next morning. But bedroom only had...
