We stayed here during the whisky festival and really enjoyed it. Our room was one of the larger ones which was lovely, but there are some smaller ones without a shower (bath only). The building is old and doesn't have standard size rooms, which is part of its charm, but you should probably ask in advance for details of the room you are booking.
The food was expensive but excellent, and the view over the harbour from the restaurant is beautiful, especially during the long summer evenings!
