So the only positive here is the staff are lovely and really want to help. The slight contradiction to this is that I had to wait 15 minutes for anybody at the desk to check me in when I arrived at 7pm. The rooms are not great and whilst they're clean, they are are in dire need of paining and...

Friendly staff. Kind enough to offer to make a hot toddy for me as I have a heavy cold. Husband had lunch & I just had soup. Well presented & tasty. Decoration a bit dated but the staff & service made up for that.

For £70 / night, it's over valued and I feel entitled to a warm shower at that price. Was shown to my room and after they got the lights to work, the room was dimly lit. Shower luke warm and staff just said it was something that needed attention. Have stayed in better places in Inverness & Oban for £70...

Stayed for one night as we wanted a break away. Cant grumble with anything about the hotel. Bridget, the manager was very nice, friendly and helpful, When we went to our room we had one slight small problem. The lights in the room were not working above the bed, so I had to go down and ask Bridget about this....

I rarely leave poor reviews but this pub was very run down. On arrival the reception desk would have benefited from some hot soapy water and a scrub, the pub is in need of a refurbishment and the decor is poor. I was in two minds about staying. Only for the four hour round trip for work the next day...
