Positive Reviews

Hospitable and informative host

Most guests speak well of the highly accommodating and hospitable assistance of the owners. They were very welcoming, informative, and made sure all the guests were having a great time. Furthermore, they made time to engage in conversations with guest, helped resolve any issues, and provided useful information for all travellers.

Adequate parking space

Guests were extremely overwhelmed with the secured and sufficient parking space provided on-site. There was plenty of free on-site and off street parking which were readily available for guests so they did not have to wait for long just to get a good parking spot.

Excellent made-to-order breakfast!

The freshly cooked and well-prepared Scottish breakfast was very satisfying according to most guests. The high quality food which includes cereals, toasts, freshly brewed coffee, yoghurts, fruits, and tasty croissants were delicious and more than enough to start their day.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are unexpectedly small!

Guests had some issues with the unexpected size of the hotel rooms. Both the single and family rooms were quite small and some guests especially those who were tall had difficulty moving around. The private bathroom seemed to be a little bigger than the size of the actual rooms.

Small and uncomfortable beds

Aside from the dirty sheets, most guests had issues with the actual size of the beds provided. The king size bed was only double beds that were combined, and the quality of the mattress was very uncomfortable. Moreover, guests noted that they could feel the springs which was quite painful for their backs.

No lift provided

Due to the lack of lift, guests especially those who were placed at the upper floor and who have mobility issues, had some difficulty taking the stairs. This issue was also inconvenient for those who carry a lot of luggage.
