The Hotel pictures looked nice on the web site and the location was excellent, close to town with a nice view on the loch and had its own parking space. The sitting areas with the fireplaces were nice and cosy, so we were quite looking forward to our stay. Unfortunately, the room was not clean, with a rusty and moldy... More

I visited the lime tree with my family on a very cold, wintry Monday night. We were greeted by a friendly face and invited into the warm restaurant with an open kitchen where we could see our meal being prepared. I was not expecting the food we were served, it was excellent. You know the phrase 'punching above your weight'... More

Great location right near town. We had two rooms both of a good size. One was very modern and one a little more traditional with a lovely window seat and a view of the river. The lighting in our traditional room was poor as was the shower pressure. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a lovely log... More

We could not have felt more comfortable in this warm, inviting and well-located hotel. Our room overlooked the loch and was spacious, cosy and furnished with a super-comfy bed. Staff at the hotel are really friendly, welcoming, remember what you like for breakfast, and generally good fun to talk to. They were really helpful when we needed an early breakfast... More

We stayed in this restaurant with rooms during a west coast rail trip. It is well positioned on the loch side, and our rooms had good loch views. The food was excellent. We had dinner and a hearty varied breakfast. The cooking is very imaginative and expertly prepared. The owner puts a great deal of effort into planning and testing... More

Stayed here with a family member in October for three nights. It was an excellent base for exploring the area, and being on the edge of town much was in walking distance. Rooms were clean and breakfasts were excellent. Also ate one night in the restaurant and enjoyed the food. Would have been a bit easier if there was more... More
