We love visiting the Ben Lawers Hotel to "get away from it" and our latest visit was another great success. It's our first visit for a couple of years and noticed a few changes - new windows, decoration and en-suites in the bedroom and new staff - Jana and Jerry. They were extremely welcoming and friendly and the food was... More

We have just spent a week with friends in a holiday house almost next door to Ben Lawrrs Hotel. We ate almost every evening in the welcoming restaurant and cannot speak highly enough of our experience. The couple who run the hotel are delightful, and the food is superb. The choice varied throughout the week and always satisfied the varied... More

Stopped by to refuel on our way home from walking in the area. Lovely coffee and yummy warm scones, served with jam and cream, likely homemade. Very friendly staff and cosy surroundings, would highly recommend.

Small hotel in an isolated location, hence no local competition. I suspect that in recent years it was allowed to run down somewhat. However, under the current proprietors it has clearly been given a new lease of life. Customers are treated with care and commitment by a dedicated couple who strive to make your visit, whether just for a drink... More

We stayed for two nights at the Ben Lawers Hotel in June 2015. The room was well appointed, with a very comfortable bed, tea making facilities, a hair dryer and toiletries. The couple running the hotel were very welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent and they made an extra special effort to accommodate my husband who is vegetarian by... More

We nearly drove past this original hotel in the highlands, but glad we didn't. It doesn't look much from the outside & even as you walk in you probably question your decision to do so, but then you meet the managers Jana & Jerry who couldn't be any more welcoming. The rooms are homely, as expected but the ensuite looks... More

a long established small hotel by the banks of Loch Tay (note, the address says 'Aberfeldy' but Kenmore is the nearest village). Upgraded now as a pleasant, cosy hotel with a good bar and restaurant. Friendly and reliable and good value for money. Currently open Wednesday - Sunday. Problems with wifi at the moment, which will no doubt be sorted... More

The room was good, but the beds uncomfortable. The limited staff (2) gave very good service, but we were disappointed to find that the hotel was only open 5 days a week. There was no sign of the owners during our 5 day stay, although we think they live in an adjacent house.
