As my room had a window onto the street, directly above the entrance door, I found the sound of voices coming up a little disturbing; people were going out for a smoke and talking loudly, and as the window was single-glazed, the sounds coming in were a bit intrusive.
However, a minor complaint only!
The Bruce is centrally located in a most beautiful village, with some fascinating old buildings nearby. The room I stayed in was a good size and the bed comfortable, with a window overlooking the street. The evening meal menu was surprisingly extensive, and turned out to be very well cooked.
All staff were very nice and made my one-night stay at the Bruce a pleasant experience.
