Just returned from a one-night's stay and would recommend the hotel for the hospitality and helpfulness of the owners and staff alone. Very friendly, very attentive, and more than happy to give a lift to and from the train station for 3 travellers who didn't quite realise how far from the station the hotel was/is... Our room was of a... More

Overall we had a good overnight at Brander Lodge - rooms, service and food were all very good. The owner was very pleasant and accommodating. We had two dogs with us and they were both made very welcome. We didn't dine in the bistro, however the menu and restaurant looked good. We would definitely return.

Stayed in the nice and spacious chalet. Very clean, good size kitchen dinning area with all that you need, great amenities. The staff was very helpful. We will definitely go back. Good place as base for traveling. Nice ski resorts at around 1 hour drive.

Stayed here for a night during a trip around Scotland. Owner David was very knowledgeable, especially on his Whisky, which he had a good selection of. Nice rooms, great amenities, breakfast was nice and good location close to Oban, Glen Coe and Loch Lomond. Would recommend and certainly go back.

Seriously I had one of the best seafood chowders I've ever had in Scotland. I've travelled in New England and Nova Scotia and the chowder at Brander Lodge definitely rivals these. Thick, creamy and hearty laden with fish and mussels. Mmmmm I'm salivating thinking about it now. It was divine. We were pampered and indulged and I'd definitely return. We... More

Friendly family hotel. On arrival hotel staff very helpful, room clean and also bathroom (a clean bathroom is very important to me). Only had a bar snack as time was getting on, but this was very nice. Cooked breakfast was spot on and set me up for the day. An after thought, I should have asked if I could have... More
