.....because part of it was great, part awful. A very friendly welcome from Mr Host. We were shown to our very small double room and warned that sometimes it takes a while for the shower to warm up. He was not joking! It took nearly 15 minutes for any hot water to appear. Bedding and towels etc. were clean but... More

After focussing on the positive reviews of this hotel, I booked a two night stay as part of our trip to the Highlands. I was happy enough with the room. It had a great view and was clean, but a little dated and I felt it could have retained it's 'old world' feel but could have been done a little... More

When we pulled up we were pleasantly suprised at how ideallic looked but once through the doors it felt like we were in a time warp back to 1950's, the place was spotlessly clean but decor and fittings were like you would find in a period drama. our room was so hot and we couldn't open the windows because of...

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay here; there were 4 couples in total. One of us had one of the front facing loch-facing rooms which was huge and had a wonderful large bed; the view is stunning. The others had garden facing rooms, all a little smaller but all very comfy it was reported. We found the Lodge to... More

Our fifth visit and we still love the place. Set beside a beautiful sea loch, it has great charm and if you have a large loch facing room, great, comfort, character and style. The Savoy it is not, but at £46 pp B & B, one cannot expect that, and if allowance is made accordingly, it is extremely good value.... More

On a tour of the west of Scotland my husband and I stayed for one night at this really characterful lodge. We had a large room with a wonderful view over the Loch. No television in the bedroom but this hardly mattered as there was a cosy lounge with a log fire for watching TV if that is what one... More
