Positive Reviews

Filling breakfast

The first meal of the day is taken very seriously at this inn where a full Scottish breakfast will see you through to dinner time. Guests say that it is delicious and that all of the items are cooked to perfection.

Lovely staff

The people that work here really can't do enough for you. They are polite and helpful in the extreme and will quite literally bend over backwards for you. From helping you out with ferry times to recommending places to see, they are willing to help in any way they can.

Superb restaurant upstairs

The Upper Deck has some of the freshest fish you'll ever eat, and the chef takes pride in making sure that all of the meals are top notch. Some guests have been so impressed by the steak that they claim it's the best they ever ate.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms

If you like big airy rooms then this may not be the place for you. There are a few guests that feel that the rooms are far too small for the price that you are paying. It's not terrible but best not to bring a lot of luggage in there.

No further issues reported

So far, there has been no further negative opinion expressed about this hotel.
