"Fantastic"
Four nights, working locally on the grouse moors. Very friendly welcome, a packed lunch was provided for me as I would leave before breakfast every morning. All the staff were professional, polite and accommodating. I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area for any reason. Looking forward to next year! Maybe with a passport! Read less
