Good Hotel Guide Review

Regular guests speak with fondness of Cherry and Gordon Gunn’s ‘delightful’ B&B, in an extended 17th-century farmhouse. Cherry Gunn is a ‘welcoming, vivacious’ hostess who is ‘meticulous in everything she does’; the couple run their enterprise with ‘commitment and passion’. Take tea with ‘delicious’ home-baked shortbread biscuits in the lounge on arrival, then relax in ‘spotlessly clean’ bedrooms decorated in a traditional style ‘in keeping with the rest of the hotel’. ‘Cherry remembered the room we’d liked on a previous visit,’ say returning guests this year. ‘The largest of their bedrooms, Larch, has a comfortable double bed, a large wardrobe with proper wooden hangers, a selection of books; a lovely Highland view from the dormer window. The faux-medieval decor will divide opinion.’ ‘Generous portions’ of the host’s ‘excellent’ Scottish-inflected French menu are served in the ‘imposing’ dining room. Come morning, ‘very good’ breakfasts (with Gordon Gunn’s ‘creamy’ scrambled eggs and ‘lovely’ bacon) can be a leisurely affair; afterwards, join red squirrels and ‘prolific birdlife’ along a ‘pleasant’ woodland path to an ‘idyllic’ seating spot. (RS, Alan and Edwina Williams)

Guest comments

'We had visited this hotel once before, 17 years ago. It was instantly familiar, and really nothing seemed to have changed, from the medieval style throughout the building to the excellent food prepared by Gordon. We had one of the larger rooms and it was excellent, a king-size double with a large bath and lots of storage. The furniture and décor was very traditional but all coordinated and absolutely in keeping with the rest of the hotel. In the very imposing main dining room, the venison and steaks were perfectly cooked, as were the accompanying vegetables which varied each night. Outside, birdlife was prolific, and red squirrels came in the mornings. T ' - Alan & Edwina Williams - March, 2016
'A lovely place to stay with superb attentive service from Cherry and excellent cooking by Gordon. It is ideal for us to stay for a night en route to Oban to catch the Isle of Mull ferry ' - William Wood
