This family run hotel is friendly, homely, relaxed with great lawns for kids to run around. There are games (and books) in the common areas which we enjoyed playing whilst having refreshment waiting for our dinner. The staff are like extended family that make you feel welcome and at home. They could not have been more helpful, kind, casual, attentive... More

All people there were very friendly and the meals were very fine. The Bistro is very nice and the dining room is clear. Many car parking paces are there and there is a smoking area in the garden, not on the street.

I booked here after speaking to the owner and explaining that two of the people I was travelling with had mobility issues. He was extremely accommodating, and made sure we had rooms easily accessible. On arrival, we were very happy with our rooms. Lovely big, comfortable beds. Great shower, with large bath sheet towels. Breakfast was fab! All in all,... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Brander Lodge, it was in a great quiet location, the food was good and the staff were friendly and very helpful, the only down side was the room it had this massive bed crammed into a single type room, the room and toilet were well kept and clean, but the room felt cramped, you...

Although I suspect it is a little time since our room had been refurbished, it was clean, had a new and very comfortable bed and a great shower. We had dinner twice and on both occasions enjoyed the laid back friendly atmosphere. There was a wide choice of dishes and everything we had was well cooked and presented. Great place... More

This is our 2nd visit to the Brander Lodge Hotel, and can honestly say is was most enjoyable. Last time we stayed in the Chalet, however on this occasion we stayed in the main hotel. We ordered dinner in the bar due to a wedding reception being held in the main dining room. Food I felt was not as good... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great food. Lovely shower and comfort in the bedrooms but furniture in bedroom looking a little tired but this did not detract from an very enjoyable stay in a beautiful area of Scotland.

We arrived about 2pm to spacious inter-connecting rooms. This was a new experience for us, and one which I would really recommend. My kids are 4 and 8, and they LOVED having their 'own' room, own tv and bathroom. I was helpfully shown a shortcut to the room from a side door, very handy to reach from the carpark. Rooms... More

Pretentious but shambolic establishment - Fawlty Towers comes to Taynuilt - complete with Manuel in the dining room, in grubby jeans and trainers ! Food very ordinary and like everything else overpriced.
