Excellent staff, food and service. The hotel is an 1890 country retreat that has been updated throughout the years and is not 'modern contemporary '. Rooms were clean, functional and quiet with good housekeeping standards. I ate in both the bar and restaurant and both meals were very good. The service throughout was excellent but the restaurant both at dinner... More

Dining experience excellent, all staff were friendly, polite and very professional. Hotel room was dated and unattractive. There was a chair in the room that served no purpose other than to make the room smaller. The wardrobe door almost fell off when we tried to hang our clothes.

Arrived for a couple of nights at the kinloch rannoch and was met with a friendly welcome. Room was nice with a beautiful view. Only issue with the room was the window - when we opened it, we couldn't close it properly - this was fixed when we spoke to the lady at the reception. We ate in the bar... More

This is our second night here. The hotel overlooks Loch Rannoch. We were warmly welcomed by the receptionist. Our room has a Loch view. The Ptarmigan Restaurant is well worth eating in. £25 for two courses, £30 for three courses. The food is excellent. The wine list is user friendly , and the wine selection has a sensible range, without... More

We took up an Amazon special offer immediately and have no regrets only great memories. Although the room could have been enhanced by updating the decor it was none the less roomy and spotless. The room overlooked the loch and the sight of a snow covered Shehallion at sunset and of a morning is breathtaking The staff were welcoming ,... More

Late decision due to lack of availability at previous choice and good offer for this hotel. Welcome at reception was very good. We booked an executive room with loch view and were pleased we had. It was spacious and comfortable with a beautiful view. We also liked the electric wall heater which gave us good control of the room temperature.... More

We stayed two nights for our friends wedding. The reception staff were very welcoming and the location is just stunning. Our room overlooked the loch but was a little cramped with bulky outdated furniture and a bed that was squishy and attached to a very squeaky built in headboard. The bathroom was tiny and tricky to get in and out... More

We had a great two night break at Loch Rannoch. A lovely spacious room, good quality toiletries, hospitality tray and shortbread. A hearty breakfast and would recommend the bar food rather than the dining room for dinner. Lovely friendly staff.

Had an overnight there with my wife for her birthday., having upgraded to an executive room. The first impression of our room was not good, especially when we got to the door, which has signs of recent repair around the lock. It looked as though the door had been forced open and had been screwed back together. The room itself... More
