Enjoyed our stay very much wish and we could have stayed longer. Room was cozy and quiet. Beds were comfy and the spotless bathroom had a great tub. Breakfast was delicious. Hostess was an amazing source of local knowledge too.

Our 3 day stay at Alltavona was the best of our Scottish vacation. We were part of a Mclean Whisky Tour. Check in was smooth. Some waited in the front parlor and sipped the complimentary whisky and sherry while each member of the group filled out their paperwork. Nice! Others

Thank you for your comments and pleased you enjoyed staying with us. I note your comments about the bed in room 3 and take your comments on board but this bed has a new memory mattress . The other guest's staying in this room were very happy with the bed and slept really well. The memory mattress is different to the more firmer mattress and if you are not used to it I can see why you commented . We buy good quality mattresses but can appreciate all guest's require different types of bed. Please next time ask to try the different options available. Carol & Paul
