Good Hotel Guide Review
Once the local doctor’s house, close to the town centre, this ‘well-appointed’ stone-built Victorian villa is now a modern guest house, enwrapped by ‘a pretty, surprisingly large garden’. Graham and Karen Smith are new owners. In the ‘sizeable’ lounges, there are maps and guides to borrow: everything required to plan a day out. Contemporary bedrooms, light and airy, come in different sizes. The single has a brass and iron bed, the most lavish an emperor-size four-poster and a fireplace. ‘Our suite had a pleasant sitting room with a sofa, two comfortable chairs, plenty of DVDs, books and magazines. The spacious bathroom has a spa bath.’
Ordered in advance, dinner is served in the modern and comfortable conservatory which overlooks the large garden. Typical dishes include: hot smoked salmon with mango salsa, rack of lamb with sweet potato, rosemary and garlic mash. Award-winning breakfasts include ‘The Scottish’, eggs benedict & french toast. Vegetarian/vegan & special diets can all be catered for. (John and Elspeth Gibbon)
