Always a great large choice of meal available to be cooked on demand! Been here several times over the last couple of years and always been a tasty fresh meal with good service and comfortable surroundings.

Heard there was live music on Sundays and, as we were staying at the local campsite, thought we'd check it out. Expected traditional Scots stuff but instead found a four piece guitar band warming up! Not a problem, we're partial to all sorts of live music so we got a pint and considered getting some food. Staff were nice and... More

Friendly staff and owner Ralf. Can be a bit noisy if your room is above the restaurant. Food is a hit or miss! Can be great one night then OK the next. Rooms were clean & comfortable. Handy for the Invergordon area.

Well, I didn't even get the chance to sample the food or indeed the Gin because they allow dogs in the bar, and you can eat in the bar, so good so far, but wait, you can only take dogs in the bar after 9pm, oh, well, you can eat late, oh, no, wrong again, the kitchen closes at 9pm,... More
