    Service not very friendly. Not the best value for money could be better. For the price it could be more exciting - found it to be very basic! Also, not a great deal on offer! Expected better for a hotel of this class!

    Great place to stay if you are visiting the distilleries nearby. Well decorated and comfortable room, though slightly on the small side for overseas visitors with large suitcases. They have a very well stocked whisky bar. Also had an excellent dinner at their restaurant.
