Really friendly staff who were very accommodating. COVID restriction meant the kitchen was closed which was not ideal but understandable. Beautiful views on way to place also! Would stay again non Covid time

Clean rooms with comfy bunks and the best showers. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Food is pretty basic but fine for refuelling after long bike ride or walk. Didn't try any whiskies but the bar had a great selection plus some bottled beers and ciders. Great location up on the hill. Highly recommended.
