We stumbled on this place several years ago when looking for wedding venues in Scotland. We were too tired to look any further for a room, and they offered us a dinner booking in their otherwise packed (and fully booked) restaurant if we stayed. The common areas were a bit below standard, but the rooms are very nice, and the view of the castle from the corner room is stunning. The food at the restaurant is wonderful (I recommend the Highland Chicken) and after eating in several other places in town, we doubly appreciated it! The staff is very friendly and the breakfasts generous. We stayed here again for our actual wedding (room with the castle view, please) and then again just last week when we took our kids to Scotland for the first time. You can probably find "nicer" places but I like a bit of character...and my kids like the biscuits and hot chocolate in the rooms.
