The Crown Hotel is very much a pub with pub grub located overlooking the harbour and the open sea in this attractive small port. The service is friendly and efficient. There were two guests ales offered on our two visits. The beer was good. We also had lunch and an evening meal here. The food is hearty, you won't leave... More

Stayed for a weekend recently and the hotel cannot be faulted. We had a large room with harbour view, which was spectacular. The hotel has friendly and attentive staff, great food and on the Saturday night traditional Scottish music of the highest quality. Cannot think there is a better place to stay in this picturesque Scottish village

Ate at the Crown Hotel after checking out the various eateries along the harbour front.............we made a good choice. Sat outside and enjoyed the wonderful weather and the beautiful setting. Tables are circular 'all in one' attached type seating, can be slightly awkward sitting in these types of... More

Met up with some colleagues here recently. The food was excellent and came in large portions. The beer was also very nice and well conditioned. Only downside was the staff - while they were definitely very efficient, they seemed really grumpy and a bit surly on the night I was there. This clearly doesn't match most other people's experiences so... More

Our room was large with a comfortable bed and we had a great night in the downstairs pub listening to a local band. Unfortunately we decided to break our rule about staying in a pub (note to self, people don't like going home quietly after closing time!).
