The bar here is a must for whisky lovers with over 1000 to chose from. Recently refurbished, the rooms are good although we had a shower producing only tepid water. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very good.

Our bar 360 is certainly worth a visit and has probably the largest collection of Malts in any hotel in Scotland. Glad you enjoyed the comfort of your accommodation and also its good to read that you had our usual quality breakfast before departure. Kind Regards, Martin mcIlrath General Manager More

Non-cramped table seating, well appointed seating and tables, high cleanliness. Staff excel in service. As an ex-Head Chef, I can be sceptical on food production. The Head Chef and his team were beyond critisism. From poached eggs, to Steaks, to Steak Pie or Belly of Pork, excellant quality and superb cooking. I ordered Salmon, a difficult fish to get perfectly... More

We're offered mulled wine or sparkling non alcoholic juice. Water was also brought to the table. We'd chosen to have the festive lunch menu, limited choice but excellent value. The smoked onion...
