Our room and bathroom were really clean and everything well thought out. The whole place has the air of being regularly painted and cared for. We got the impression that the owners are very committed to making the place run well - they are really nice people and seem interested in their guests. The food was really good, all parts of our bistro meal seemed home made and really tasty. Breakfast equally good.

strayed just one night but it was an enjoyable stay. Spotlessly clean. Good size rooms. Had evening mean in Bistro which was really nice- ( BYOB). Staff all very friendly and helpful. Nice touch with a selections of DVD's and books available. Two minor points - bed a little lumpy, perhaps time for a mattress change and shower not very powerful. However, will definitely be back again at some point in the near future.

We are from Australia and this was the only accommodation that we found in Scotland that was akin to what we would call a Motel. The rooms were very comfortable and private and all the little extras (eg wine glasses in the room) were taken care of. We dinner here on the night we stayed and I have to say that it was definitely one of the best meals that we had whilst in Scotland - we had the steak and also the haloumi salad, which was superb. We also overheard a small boy telling his Dad that his chicken nuggets were the best he'd ever had! The bistro is BYO and there is no corkage charge so it is terrific value for such a nice meal. The hosts are excellent. We'd thoroughly recommend this travel lodge and bistro.

We only stayed one night but Jim & Ellie made us feel completely at home. We had an evening meal on the Thursday night and it was simply delicious. We did however find the bed a little on the hard side but we both had a good nights sleep so I guess it couldn't have been that bad. Room was spotless and functional. Would definately return.

Three of us stayed overnight on a touring holiday. We all found the rooms and facilities very comfortable with every thing you could need. Jim and Elie both very welcoming. We would highly recommend a meal in the bistro, delicious home cooking and breakfast just as good.
