I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling the area, especially those from the US, like me. Located in the historic Crescent community, the hotel is a beautiful building situated in a beautiful, park like neighborhood. Our room was large, and private, with a great view and private bath. The award winning gardens on the property (the loving work of Barbara - with a hand from Douglas here and there, I'm sure) were full of life and aromas - very relaxing after a long day of site seeing. The view from the gardens overlook the firth - breathtaking. The Scottish breakfasts were fabulous and tea was available in the afternoon. Douglas and Barbara are hoteliers (for certain) and run a great Bed and Breakfast!Pros: The proprietors, Barbara and Douglas, and their staff are warm and welcoming, very knowledgeable of the area for shopping, golfing, and visiting attractions, very accommodating for taxis and breakfasts on the go.Cons: The hotel is very well kept, very clean, warm, inviting.
