Loved the feather pillows and duvet, slept as well as at home. Breakfast was variable, but on the whole a very nice place to stay and good...

This small hotel is a perfect location if you are doing the southern coast of Scotland. It's right off the main road. The staff was great. Breakfast was delicious. Our room was great, with a nice shower and comfortable beds. Good value for the money.
