It's not often you leave a place and feel like you should have paid more but we felt that we got amazing value for money at The Ranald and cannot recommend the place enough.
Parking is 'on street' but it was no problem to ind a space right outside. The hotel has 17 rooms. It is really tastefully decorated - using tartan in a contemporary way, lovely lighting and some nice prints.
The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful from Evalina who checked us in, to the lovely South African guy who served us breakfast.
The bedroom was spacious and clean with, again, attractive contemporary decor. The bed was really comfy and the shower was excellent with good quality shower gel provided.
The bar and breakfast area is lovely. At night it's beautifully lit and a nice place to have a pre-dinner drink. We'd wandered to The Lorne pub just up the street but returned to he Ranald bar for a drink as it was far nicer!
The breakfast features a lovely selection of fruits, yoghurt s and The Ranald's signature dish - baked eggs; your choice of two eggs on top of ,haggis, smoked salmon etc then baked with some cheddar cheese grated over it.
Don't know how they can do all that for 70 pounds!
