Good Hotel Guide Review

John Bochel and Rachel Philipsen’s ‘good-value’ small hotel is a short walk from the beach. Overlooking the green and the promenade, its glass-fronted lounge faces ‘the panorama of the sea’. On a fine day, spend the afternoon in the suntrap hedged garden, surrounded by flowerbeds. Well-equipped bedrooms are traditionally decorated in ‘light, cheerful’ colours; four have views over the Moray Firth. At dinner, John Bochel’s ‘homely, competently prepared’ Scottish dishes have a European twist; a ‘good choice of wine’ and more than 100 malt whiskies provide liquid accompaniment. Good variety at breakfast. Lounge, dining room (‘easy listening’ background music). Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). ½-acre garden, terrace. Parking. Children welcomed (cot). 8 bedrooms (1 suitable for disabled). Per room B&B £80–£170. Dinner £35. Closed Nov–mid-Feb.

Guest comments

'We were warmly greeted by Rachel who has taken charge of this family-run hotel with her husband John Bochel. Our room was the Master Sea View Double on the front of the house, looking across the green to the Moray Firth. It was spacious and decorated in cheerful colours. Free Wi-Fi. We enjoyed dinner: I found the food homely and competently prepared. There was a very good choice of wine. Breakfast: a wide choice from the buffet table followed by a choice of usual cooked breakfast items. ' - John Holland - July, 2014
