          We had both lunch and afternoon tea at this nice, traditional hotel. The food was really tasty and good value. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. A good place to take a break while visiting this beautiful part of Scotland.

          My husband and I are staying at this hotel next month and are concerned (based on the review so far) about this being the best choice for our family with two young children. What are the best rooms for a family that are quiet, clean, & spacious? It sounds like the hotel is really run down and dirty (smells like ciggy smoke, and noisy all hours of the night?!). Thank you for any help you can provide!
