We stayed in this hotel for two nights as part of an organised tour and therefore I cannot comment whether it was value for money. It is a little out of town so, if you don't have a car, you would probably use a taxi although it is a walkable distance. Our room (very spacious and comfortable) was on the... More

We stayed several nights at the Silver Dart Lodge based on a recommendation from friends. The lodge is very clean, has a great view of the lake, and offers very nice breakfasts and dinners. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice as well. We also had a drink one evening in the bar, again that was very nice... More

This hotel was selected purely for it's location. The price was reasonable and the rooms seemed pretty nice. We had a ground level room which had a walk-out patio, kinda cool. The room was nicely appointed. The wireless reception was also nice and strong. We were lucky to find an online deal with this hotel where breakfast was free each... More

I was only here for 2 nights but would have loved to stay longer. The location was stunning - overlooking the lake - and so conveniently located to town and other attractions. I really enjoyed sitting out on the deck looking over the lake in the morning. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the restaurant also was excellent.... More

Stayed here for a week while on a golf vacation in CB. A good central location so that you can commute to all the island's courses in a bit more than an hour (Cabot links, The Lakes, Highland links, Dundee, Bell Bay). Breakfast was good, both a la carte and buffet. Very help staff
