Silver glitter on the bedroom lampshades to a lot of lilac throughout the bedroom and lounge suggested the owners were trying hard but maybe not getting it all right. The bedroom was packed with little details, and we ran into a few "rules" that maybe reflected the challenge of running the local bar/pub directly alongside something appealing to a more... More

We called into this hotel today for a light lunch on a day tour of the area. All we wanted was a sandwich of which there were the usual options available on the menu. Our youngest son wanted a plain cheese sandwich rather than the advertised version with tomato and pickle so my wife ordered our lunch, clearly specifying that... More

It was OK. Big room, not especially new or modern-looking but clean and comfortable; all the amenities. Great view. We were aware the wifi wouldn't work in the rooms but we couldn't get it to work anywhere. Too many people connecting perhaps. The staff themselves were all lovely, but I suspect there weren't enough of them (it was peak season)... More

Our first impressions of Ben Loyal Hotel were more favourable than we had been led to expect from the reviews we had read. However later on they appeared to be short staffed and our request for someone to repair the tv in our room was not met. The hotel had much to like eg good views from our room but... More

Friendly and efficient check in staff and a tidy, clean and fairly trendily decorated room, if a little on the small side. There was a cot bed ready for our little one, but it hadn't been made up. The wifi was iffy, but the beautiful views from the dining room made up for the lack of the Internet. The dinner... More

We had a really enjoyable pit stop here and felt it would be ideal to come back for a few days. The food, service and prices were excellent. The magic of this place though is the atmosphere. Just the right balance between peace and activity. A few days to read a bit, drink & eat and, for me a bit... More

This was a nice place with a beautiful view from the dining room. Our room was in an annex across from the main building and was quiet and comfortable. We took a nice walk before having an adequate dinner. Back again for breakfast and then on our way. I would recommend this as a good place to spend the night.... More

Had a lovely time here, the room was spacious and clean with stunning views of the castle and Ben Loyal. Had our tea here and ordered fish and chips, I was warned it was a mammoth fish and she wasn't joking, it was massive, tasted delicious but I couldn't finish it, despite my best efforts. Breakfast was very nice, cooked... More
