5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2009

The resonance was perfect for a young at heart person like myself. Camper van couple in the car park opposite, sassy hostess, nice food, and charming maitre d'. The meander through the local countryside was a nice change to my normal pace of life and I will save a few airmiles by not going abroad this year to some lookalike capital city. The local retail population seems to have raised its game too and so I am poorer but certainly happier .......

As a place to visit the stones around Kilmartin, this hotel is in a good place, and has a small bar and beer garden. As a solo traveller I was put up in a non- ensuite room which they explained was "cheap and cheerful" and indeed it was the former.

It was at the top of the building and there was a very strong smell which I couldn't decide, in the end, was rodent pee or the air-freshener; I fear it was the former. The room was small and not especially comfortable. I didn't have an evening meal, but it was friendly enough, just about suited me at the time, but isn't somewhere I'd stay again given the choice.

  • Liked — close to Kilmartin stones
  • Disliked — that smell

A typical old country hotel in Scotland. Room OK - not modern with basic fittings typical of these type of places. Had 2 nights single occupancy of double en suite with bath but no shower. Cost £40 per night B&B. Walls a bit thin. Room clean enough.

Place apparently closed during the day in winter & when I came in at about 5.00pm each night the room was pretty cold & I had to ask for them to switch the central heating on - which they did straight away - but not what you're wanting really.

Breakfast OK & they left out juice & cereal for me on second morning when l left early. Pleasant staff. Dinner in bar good & good value as well. Car parking.

  • Liked — Meals good.
  • Disliked — Had to ask to put heating on!
  • Stayed November 2006, travelled on business
