Negative Reviews


The building and décor shows its age.

While charming to many reviewers, the Victorian-era townhouses do show their age. Some guests reported dated décor in the rooms and problems like low ceilings and narrow staircases. Some reviews also cited the limited number of power outlets in the rooms.


Restaurant menu options are limited.

Several reviewers stated that the restaurant menu was nothing to write home about. Owing to the hotel's relatively small size, guests should not expect too many choices. Some also commented that the breakfast was not to their liking, while others said that dinner was very good.


The rural location might be too remote for some.

Although the remote Scottish countryside location is a selling point for many, others may find it too remote for their liking. A few guests noted that cell phone reception was poor as was the internet connectivity, effectively cutting them off from the outside.
