Stayed here two nights; the hosts were so friendly and welcoming, the room (single room) was spotlessly clean, comfortable and cosy, and the breakfasts were delicious. It's a small B&B so feels very homely; I would definitely recommend staying here!

Stayed at the Holt inn whilst cycling the scotland coast to coast, we could not fault the level of service Phil and Claire provided, they seem to know when to leave you in peace and when to interact which can be rare in B&Bs. Phil is very knowledgable of the area so we where able to find places to visit...

Had a two night solitary stay to help recharge my batteries as part of my recovery from serious disease. What a perfect choice!

Just stayed one night, in May, 2016, but it was a memorable one. Adult daughter had the downstairs single and I shared the upstairs room with hubby, but no other guests, so we had the whole place to ourselves. Phil and Claire could not have been kinder, better hosts! Nicely appointed rooms and bathrooms, and that breakfast room is just...

We stayed here while walking the Great Glen Way in May. Cost was 65 pounds. Check-in wasn't until 4 pm but we arrived at 2 pm and saw Claire in the front yard weeding and she graciously let us check-in. It was great to be able to shower and change before we went out to explore the town. The room...
