We booked this Inn online because of it's locality. We like the peace and tranquility of either the seaside or a rural spot such as this.

Stayed at the Bien Inn for 3 days from 6th November 2016. The rooms were very comfortable and warm. The food and hospitality was excellent and nothing was too much trouble the staff were very helpful.

We have just stayed for 1 night at the Famous Bein Inn and it was excellent! The greeting we got from the lovely lady behind reception was warm and friendly, just what you need after having driven from Blackpool to Aberdeen and then back down to Perth! The lady showed us to our room and we were very pleasantly surprised....

Bed valances were dirty; skirtings were dirty; room smelled like a well used dog bed; stain on the bedroom carpet was covered with a door mat; bathroom smelled equally bad; hair and debris in the bath plughole; drip stains around the toilet pedestal; pipes knocking all night kept us awake. The inclusive breakfast was to be served from 8am, but...

Went with a mate, and were surprised how empty the car park was at 1pm on a Sunday. Bar and restaurant were empty but the service was friendly and food was produced promptly. Decent choice of cask/real ales. Disappointingly the baileys cheesecake was extremely bland, vanilla and although I was assured the chef had been given 50ml of baileys there...

Excellent, attentive, friendly staff. Lots of chat with our two year old daughter. (Brought her crayons and paper) Old style setting - nice and clean. We chose from main menu and specials on board and were not disappointed with anything we chose - in fact we loved it. Not the cheapest for bar meal, but worth it and had a...
