My party of six, including children, decided to visit this hotel for an evening meal. We were told the previous morning that there would be no need to book for a Thursday night, but we should arrive between 6.30pm and 7pm. This, we did, close to 7pm. On arrival we were told we could order drinks but we would not... More

Room just looked old and although floor space was OK because of the eves you had to stoop. Oh and the advertised wifi in... More

We chose a larger room facing the loch and am I glad we did. The view from the room was superb and you just wanted to sit there and look. We were the only ones booked in the night we stayed, yet the service was excellent and the lady who helped us with breakfast was lovely and did everything possible... More

Went for a weekend stay and had a really good experience at this hotel. The room was spotlessly clean with interesting and very appropriate furniture. The views from all the windows were stunning!!! The staff were all friendly. All the food was fresh, well cooked and nicely presented with very reasonable, affordable prices. We especially liked the interesting and varied... More

we stayed in the kames Hotel for 2 nights. Our room had a fabulous view even the mist over the hills was awesome. The bed was comfy and the room had everything we needed. All staff we encountered during our stay were welcoming and attentive and the atmosphere was friendly and homely. A lovely restful break.
