Travelled as a family with a young child.
When we first arrived, I was not happy. We had been driving eight long hours, I was in desperate need of a toilet and a stretch out on a bed, but when we got there, there was no one home. We had to wait an hour before anybody turned up. Had no way to let anybody know, that we were there. The place looked worn down, not been decorated since the 40s, and to add to bad mood, we didn't have en-suite. We did have our own private bathroom but we had to leave the room to get to the bathroom (which was straight opposite to the bedroom).
After I had a chance to freshen up, Sarah, the owner came to introduce herself and straight away I felt more cheerful, she was very friendly and chatty. Made us feel right at home. We stayed for two nights and she was always as lovely, always had time to chat and recommend places to see that we would not have come across without her.
The breakfast was good. Had a good variety to choose from. We tried the fry up on the first morning, and it was good. I found mine too salty, but I don't eat cooked breakfasts usually, I just like to try them out when I am away. Loved the haggis! My partner and son loved their breakfasts, they were happy with theirs. So the saltiness was my issue alone:) The second morning I had smoked haddock with scrambled egg, one the best things I have ever tasted!! My partner had a cheese omelette and son had another cooked breakfast. Both loved theirs, again.
The B&B is located in the most beautiful spot, the views from the bedroom were breath-taking! The local village is a walking distance away. There is a kids park nearby as well, which my son loved. It was a chance for him to do something fun after a long day of walking. Sarah and Darren had kids as well, so they provided playful company in the evening as well, which was nice.
After my initial shock of the old décor, I learned never to judge by first impression. It was clean, bed was very comfortable and the décor made absolutely no difference to our enjoyment. I don't care if the place was orange overall, the owners are still lovely, food is yummy, slept really well.. No complaints at all! We are actually looking to go back as soon as. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast, and we would definitely visit Aslaich again! Next time, I will let them know what sort of time we will be arriving though..:)
