Good Hotel Guide Review

Built in the early 1800s, this handsome B&B, a former surgeon’s house, stands at the gateway to the Highlands. Andrea and Martin Anderson, its ‘warmly welcoming’, hands-on owners, are ‘very knowledgeable’ about nearby dining, with ‘great advice’ on interesting local sights. Uncluttered rooms, two of them refurbished in 2018, are scattered across the main house and converted stables, each dressed with contemporary pops of colour and equipped with a generous hospitality tray, fluffy towels, quality toiletries, an umbrella for rainy days. Some rooms have a sloping ceiling, a skylight, mountain views; some are nearer the road than others (‘although we weren’t disturbed by traffic noise’). ‘Our comfortable spotlessly clean courtyard suite had a light, bright separate sitting area.’ Mornings are greeted in the ‘delightful’ cedar-and-glass extension with a cosy central wood-burner and views over ‘beautifully kept’ gardens. It hosts a ‘divine’ breakfast: Arnold Bennett omelette, pick-your-own-adventure porridge (summer berry compote, made from fruits from the garden; whisky, cream and sugar; Perthshire honey); apple pancakes with grilled bacon. ‘Simply superb.’ More reports, please.

Guest comments

'Martin welcomed us warmly, showed us to our suite in the courtyard,and gave us great advice about where we might have dinner. The room was delightful, spotlessly clean. Its lounge area was furnished with two extremely comfortable chairs and matching foot stools, and was light and bright. The bathroom and bedroom were similarly well appointed. Although the room is nearest to the road we were not disturbed by any traffic noise at all. We enjoyed the two best breakfasts of our thirteen-day tour of Scotland. Service was excellent and the Arnold Bennett omelette divine! The dining room in the double height extension is delightful, overlooking the beautifully kept gardens. ' - Deborah Connell - June, 2015
'We can do no better than concur with the entry in the 2013 Guide. As a B&B it could hardly be bettered, and the breakfast was top-class. ' - John Saul - April, 2013
