Welcoming Hotel with all you need for a "rest". Breakfast is very good but sometimes is hot buffet style. This is a compromise from a cooked to order breakfast that stands head and shoulders above the buffet. Rooms are comfortable and Wi Fi is OK. Lots of information for the birdwatching and wildlife crowd. Fabulous scenery, great location.

Our third stay here. We had Room 104 which is a very nice large 'superior' room on the first floor corner of the hotel with two aspects and a turret window, plus a spacious bathroom with a large bath and a very efficient shower. The absence of a heated towel rail was a notable omission but the bathroom was particularly...

This place was refreshing after B&B's and the breakfast and meals in the hotel were splendid.. Okay, you want to try a real English hotel that reminds you of those you have seen on BBC movies and Alfred Hitchcock. This is it. It's an all in one spot with a restaurant, a pub and it is the wildlife hotel of...

On business in the area and the Grant Arms Hotel was a central location to meet some close family. What a find! It has excellent rooms, great food and lovely service. The location is ideal also. We'll be back.

Called in here, after a long hike through the local woods, and along the river. We have a Goldie so finding somewhere far a bit of R&R can often be a challenge. The Cafe/bar here looked closed (4.30pm) but in vain hope, I called in to Reception to ask if they could find us a spot for a refreshing cuppa,...

I recently had the opportunity to stay at this hotel with a group of people traveling on a tour. The hotel is fantastic, the food wonderful, and the staff friendly and accommodating. It is located in a central location in the beautiful countryside of Scotland.

This is a very nice hotel with good, friendly service. The food as well is generally very good. The fish is excellent; the vegetarian selections are as well. The meat is a different story and tends to be overcooked and dry. I had pork medallions one night and the flavor was, in a word, terrible. Kitchen tries to please and...

I have reviewed the Grant Arms several times before and keep coming back! Although there have been some changes in staff since our last visit, the same high standard of care and flexibility has been maintained. Some rooms only have a shower and as my wife likes a long relaxing bath after a day out, I rang to request, sure...

This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. You get a warm welcome on arrival and all the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The bird song soundtrack background is very subtle and not at all intrusive, indeed if you are not bird watchers you will hardly notice it but if you are it...

Had a great 3 day stay at the hotel, the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful!
