hidden gem

This is great little hotel with character in abundance.

The location 20 odd miles out of Aberdeen is no problem considering the over pricing in hotels in the city. The room was spotless, well equipped and quiet even though I was on the main road. Some digital tv channels were not available and WiFi was not good.
