This is a well-run pub/restaurant/hotel. We stayed 2 nights recently. The bar and restaurant are of a high standard - local beer, local food produce are a stand-out feature. Fish dishes are particularly good - even for breakfast!
Given the age and location of the building don't expect an entirely logical layout of the facilities. Bedrooms are comfy, though the windows being fairly ancient are not the easiest to open, and on a Friday or Saturday night don't expect an entirely quiet night as you're right in the centre of town.
Staff are generally friendly though when I said our TV picture had suddenly deteriorated there was an air of disbelief - our TVs always work properly! - another staff member later said "Oh it happens all the time here - the picture goes suddenly". If arriving by car - beware the very tight turning in to the small car park and take note of the Ross one-way system to get to the hotel. A less stressful way to get there is to take the bus to Ross as hotel quite near various bus stops.
If wanting dinner in the restaurant make sure you book a table well in advance as these get booked up quickly. And on a lighter note the covered over section of the car park has a mechanical bird-scarer that emits some interesting sounds!
