We stayed for two nights at the Loch Rannoch hotel in the latter part of July. Our experience was a mixed bag but not unenjoyable. Location itself was excellent. Our room looked over the Loch - what more could you ask. Access to the hotel, however, is a different matter. When we looked on the map before booking, it did... More

Nice room, tradiional style very comforyable. Beatiful nature with seaview. Restaurant OK but not exceptional The car trip to reach the hotel is an experience in it self. Lot of activities available in the surroundings. Hotel suitable for all types of vacation

The hotel is in a lovely location on a loch, but it is extremely remote. We found it exceptionally sad that the neighbouring town has pretty much died, except for a post office and a coffee shop, it seems like nothing else is open and everything is boarded up. The hotel is quaint. The rooms are adequate and a good... More

So, many people say that the hotel is a bit dated but to me, it is part of the charm. Having said this, improving some bathrooms, getting new curtains and quilts and getting some more TV channels is a good idea. But this shouldn't ruin your stay. Every year we are always a bit over zealous to start our outdoor... More

The hotel is decorated in traditional Scottish colours and patterns, lots of tartan. The hotel is easy to find, around 25 mins drive away from Aberfeldy. Lots of car parking, and situated right on the Loch. Our room (215) had a lovely view of the loch, was very big, with a large bathroom. Bed was comfy, no complaints at all... More

Didn't get off to the best start with these guys when booking the room, we used our Tesco vouchers as we have in the past, only to discover that an equivalent room would cost less had we paid cash. Not sure if this is Tesco's or MacDonald hotels problem, but it made us feel penalized for using our vouchers. Location... More

The location is superb, the hotel is beatific and the rooms superb. If the food and drink were more fairly priced I'd be happy to give a 4/5. However, nearly £5 a pint is extortionate. Haven't eaten here as put off by the prices but Aberfeldy has a lovely Persian restaurant I'd recommend.
