David, owner and manager went above and beyond to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Each day he helped us find our way around the best scenic routes, giving us a hand written tour guide, telling us about the shortcuts and best views. Andie, Katie and all the staff were friendly, efficient and well trained and provided great service. An excellent location to base yourself for a tour around the highlands. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

Date of stay: September 2019

This is a great place! Owned by a New Zealander and together with his family have created a magic spot. Take a stroll down to the river. Friendly and accommodating staff all round. Food was brilliant. We recommend the beef and ale pie and the chicken balmoral! We hadn’t booked but they found room for us.

We stayed for one night but were made very welcome by Dave (the owner) and his staff. Our room was first rate very spacious with an enormous bed. We had dinner in the restaurant, which was excellent and excellent value for money, followed by drinks in the cosy bar. Good breakfast too. Well worth a visit.

I’ll keep this short. This is a really friendly hotel, great hosts, great food and great location. They have a well stocked bar, the owner is a really nice chap from NZ and the staff are warm and friendly. We booked last minute instead of camping as the rain was heavy. They managed to fit 5 of us in with no fuss and even offered to dry our wet clothes. Great breakfast in the morning set us up for the day! Thanks.
