We have stayed here many times. The rooms are not spacious but most have fab views of Ben Loyal. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfy. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a good lounge area and a public bar. The food is excellent. We will come back again!

It's an authentic hotel at the very North part of Scotland, where we stayed a couple of nights. The room was in the main building and facing the old Castle. Even if they were rustic, our rooms were well equipped, quiet & comfortable. Convenient Pub within the hotel & a nice lounge to relax and enjoy an evening whisky !... More

Very friendly country hotel. The view from our room was fantastic, overlooking the fields, loch and castle Barraich. At dusk and dawn red deer were roaming in the fields below. Excellent food and very friendly staff. There is a seperate lounge for guests if you prefer not to be in the bar/pub side. In the morning we suffered from a... More

We were a mixed party of seven, two older couples, one single and young couple with baby. Our room was very nice with lovely view, although the bathroom was a bit dated it was spotlessly clean with nice toiletries. Good tea tray. Unfortunately the village had a power cut on our first morning and therefore kitchen unable to cook breakfasts,... More

First impressions are important and sadly The Ben Loyal fails to impress. The reception area is dowdy and cluttered and there is a pungent musty smell. Our bedroom was adequate although the cramped en suite was in need of renovation, interesting to see a rubber band holding the shower lever in the "off" position. The staff were hard working and...

Stopped here for lunch on our way round Coastal Scotland camping. It was a beautiful sunny day and the barman was immediately friendly and chatty, really made us feel so welcome. We ordered a burger and fajitas from the lunch menu. Both were delicious and huge portions for hungry campers! The barman also kindly let us charge our phones while... More
