This hotel does need work on it, it is shabby and dated. It needs a better selection of beer and food also. Having said that we ate there twice and couldn't complain, the food was good and inexpensive. The staff were very good an along with the locals made us fell very welcome.

This hotel is a typical "don't judge a book by its cover" hotel. From the outside it might look a bit dated, but the room we stayed in was fantastic. Very spacious with a large bed and also a spacious bathroom with bath and separate shower. It was all very clean too. The diner room was also a bit dated,...

There doesnt seem to be a maintenance man but the...

Nice wee place for a meal if you're camping nearby. Its not a fancy place by any means, but would certainly recommend the food. Fairly big portions. We tried scampi and steak pie and both were delicious.

Only advice is keep driving or go to a local b & b. Rooms are dirty with wallpaper hanging off the walls and badly stained bath and grubby showers. In desperate need off a total renovation. Such a shame for a lovely little village that the only bar is in such a state.

Went in with the aim of having a few drinks. The dining room that we sat in was filthy and we sat and listened to the only other person in the room eating their dinner the only sound was the clink of the cutlery. The carpet made you feel sick full of stains and sticky patches. Ladies toilet pipes were...

Myself and 9 friends stayed here for a night on a motorcycling trip. Yes a few things could do with repairing etc but it's not £200 a night so stop moaning. The people here were very friendly and made you feel very welcome. Even the locals took time out to come over and chat to us . Breakfast was amazing...

Dinner served from 6pm on. Staff friendly and help full. I had home made mushroom soup and a roll and home made steak pie. Both excellent. Wife had sirloin steak and trimmings, just. A wee bit too much. Soup £3, pie £7+, steak £13.

Very willing and helpful staff gave us a memorable experience. Food excellent for the price simply cooked using local ingredients. Rooms comfortable but decor a little tired and in need of some maintenance but this was made up for by the friendly staff giving helping us have a wonderful evening.
