Clean nice rooms, friendly staff but the breakfast isn't great. The price we paid, £33 p/p b & b was really good. Good facilities and very clean room and a very good location, just off the main road near all the shops, bars and restaurants.

Nice place, good location. Fairly comfortable. Cheap. Parking is available but not great. The wifi works. Not a lot more to say, didn't try the restaurant or bar. But for a convenient decent place to stay, it worked for me.

Small room, small double bed, TV on wall high up so strained neck watching. Staff very friendly. Limited parking. No haggis or black pudding for breakfast, poor choice of selection for breakfast (glad it was included in room rate)

Stayed recently for 1 night. Was a clean, comfortable and affordable hotel with a good restaurant onsite. The downside was that was no hot water in the morning to have a shower and upon reporting this to reception they said that it is due to the low water pressure. Other guests were complaining about the same issue and the lady... More

Recently stayed here. Older building but well restored. Our room was comfortable but had to drag suitcases up flight of stairs, no elevator to our room. Limited parking. Short walk to pedestrian shopping strip which is being renovated. Breakfast room was light and bright.
