We only stayed at this hotel as it was the designated National Holiday hotel... Thankfully, as one of our party stated, its not where you are but the company you are in... This hotel is in the middle of nowhere but the views are spectacular ( from the front not from the rooms ) . The welcome was warm (ish)... More

We boarded our National Holidays at 8am on Sunday morning in Middlesbrough, our last pick up was in Newcastle, so why do National Holidays need to take us all the way across country to Gretna Green then back across country to Arrochar. we arrived there at 6pm (10 hours on a very warm coach) the delays were due to traffic...

we stayed here on a 3 day National Holiday break to see the Tattoo. The hotel was a bit dated but clean. The food was lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. The views from the hotel and our bedroom window were breathtaking.

The room was lovely recently refurbished the views from the room and hotel are out of this world. The staff are all... More

I have just returned from the worst 2 days I have ever spent in my life. I stayed in the Claymore Hotel in the most disgusting, filthy room I have ever seen. The whole place is in desperate need of a clean. My room was like something from Dickens. The view from my window was that of a brick wall.... More

Many thanks for your comments on trip advisor. The 50p charge for coffee/hot chocolate is only for cappuccino, hot chocolate and latte coffees - every other hot drink -black/white coffee, americano, espresso and tea etc. is included in your Bay inclusive voucher. I hope that this will not deter you from staying with us again soon. Kind regards, Gary Watson. More

We stayed at The Claymore Hotel recently and requested a room with a shower because reviews said that very few rooms had showers. What we got was a very basic, musty smelling damp room. When we opened the door we were hit by this stale, musty smell. The bath room. apart from having a shower could not have been more... More

Many thanks for your review on trip advisor. We don't often get reviews like this and I can only apologise if you felt the room was substandard. If you had brought your concerns to the duty manager at the time we would have gladly moved your room. I'm delighted that you found the staff friendly and helpful. Regards, Gary Watson. More
