We did our booking through Booking.com which indicated our room would be ready from 12.30 although we were told that was wrong when we got there about 12.50, normally it would be 2.00. We had just had a 5 hour drive and were going to our friends as soon as we could. Despite this a very capable young man invited... More

We booked this hotel as a stop off from driving back from Scotland, after reading the positive reviews. I dont know if some of these reviews are written by family and friends, but this hotel was nothing like the reviews we read. No one at front if house in our arrival, left hanging about. Another couple who arrived at same... More

The Black Swan is a hotel/bar/restaurant that has been refurbished to a high standard. The quality of the fittings in the rooms, the comfort etc is all very good. the only downside with all this is it's a little characterless but does make for a very comfortable stay. the hotel was happy to store my bike in their shed which...

We stayed just one night on a recent trip but I wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is very tastefully refurbished but has kept a lot of original features which gives the whole place a charming feel. Our room very beautiful. One thing to note is that whilst we had a bath there was o shower so if... More

We booked here for a 2 night stay on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews, and weren't disappointed. Lovely hotel, with good food and friendily, helpful staff. There is not much in Culgaith, but you don't anything else when you've got the Black Swan! The only minor criticism was the wifi signal appeared quite tempremental.

My son bought me a days hire/drive of vintage Morgan for my birthday, after a wonderful 150 mile drive round the lakes we chose to eat in the Black Swan to finish the day. We were not disappointed, the pub is furnished to a very hire standard (comfortable not stuffy posh!), A good selection of excellent food with some local... More

Very clean, pretty, warm with smiling welcoming staff, aesthetically pleasing service and presentation and gorgeous food. We stayed when doing the C2C bike ride and our bikes had somewhere safe to live overnight. Don't hesitate to book.

We booked in here for a stop-over on the way back from a holiday in Scotland. The service was great from the moment we walked through the door and the staff were friendly and helpful. We booked for dinner and enjoyed a beautifully presented three course meal. Compliments to the chef! Our room was over the bar lounge but we... More

A little off the beaten track, but better for it. Food was well prepared and service OK, even though they were very busy. Plenty off the road parking. Wi-Fi was good and strong, no problems there. Fed up being forced to make a longer comment!!!
