Looking for rooms for the night after a long day I made the mistake of not asking the price beforehand. This is billed as a restaurant with rooms and has 2 forks in the Michelin Guide.We were expecting the dinner to be rather expensive but Dinner, with B&B cost £225-00 for two! The hosts were unwilling to break that down. Had they done so it might have made more sense
We calculated that for average rooms they should have cost no more than £70-00 for two [based on prices in Scotland in late October of the 6 places we stayed in, all at the top of the range], which made the Dinner £77-50 a head. It certainly was not worth anything like that, given that it was a perfectly straightforward meal – one of us had 2 courses the other 3 - and no gourmet fare though it was well cooked and presented. Wine was extra.
When the room warmed up [no CH] it was OK and was comfortable enough but not of a high standard. It was quiet.
They boasted of freshy squeezed orange juice for breakfast. Although it had ‘bits in’ it was not – both by the taste and we saw the packet as she was leaving the room. It had come from the supermarket! This was a very disappointing place to stay at a shockingly high price, and we definitely would not go back or recommend it. For a meal it might well be OK but ine should ask the price beforehand or risk a nasty shock.
