The Drovers Inn

The Drovers accommodation is, shall it be said, not based on your standard hotel bedroom. It reflects the tradition and history of the building and replicates the ambience of the downstairs areas but no two are in any other way similar. With a mix of styles, décor and facilities it is the Inn’s contention that staying in The Drovers’ should be as much of an “experience” as eating and drinking is!
There are a mix of standard rooms and en suite twin, double and family rooms. The juxtaposition of the Duke of Argyll’s original bed being next door to a Jacuzzi bath is both amusing and eccentric. But that’s the Drovers for you through and through. Expect the unexpected and you won’t be disappointed.
