Had the misfortune to visit the Oaktree Inn food & service was dreadful, when we complained to the manager (Kirstie) she was downright rude & obnoxious how some people manage to get jobs I will never know avoid this place like the plague.

The Oak Tree Inn is the centre of Balmaha, all village life seems to revolve around it! You could almost sense that they felt that this meant they didn't have to try with the service because where else could you go. It was either impersonal and rushed or lethargic and unenthusiastic. The coffee at breakfast was undrinkable, though the latte... More

Spent a couple of nights late June. In one of the cottages a short walk from main building. Room was clean and facilities very good. The buffet breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Ate in the main restaurant on the first night and the bar on the second. Both meals were very good. The bar has an excellent selection... More

Called in for lunch yesterday and the service and food, alongside local beers, was simply excellent. If only everywhere made the same effort! Will definitely be back and recommend to family and friends.

Wonderful and more quietly smaller dreamy place. Very nicely in the hole Lomond situated. The pub is first-class and very comfortably. Food and drinks is to be recommended very much. The different overnight possibilities offer something for all purses. There are still other B&Bs nearby. From there one can make small and big wanderings or walks in the hole Lomond,... More

We decided to drop in for late lunch after doing a lot of walking and found the staff pleasant and very efficient, we dined inside as there are less flies etc. My macaroni cheese was served with garlic bread and was tasty, my friend had the steak pie served with nice veg and potatoes plenty of meat in the pie...

We stayed here for one night while walking the West Highland Way. We first had to wait as there was no one at the check in desk, staff were walking by us, but no one asked if we needed help. After someone finally came, we checked in and were shown to our room which was very clean, but small, we... More

Hi folks, thought I’d drop you some notes on our trip up to the Oak Tree Inn. Well we arrived there last Saturday about 3.15pm, after 250 dry miles, and found the staff very friendly and helpful. Got booked in and went to the well stocked bar for a few beers, lovely selection of real ales and quite a few... More

A group of 4 of us ( plus dogs) sat outside for Sunday lunch. It was busy but there seemed to be plenty of staff and no-one appeared to be waiting. Unfortunately those staff were dropping off and picking up dishes but no-one was cleaning the tables, which were filthy as well as being covered in greenfly and bits from... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. The room itself was clean and comfortable enough. However it would have been nice to have a wardrobe to hang clothes in as we had a suit and a dress that would have benefitted from hanging properly! Couple of things really let the place down for us. The chambermaids seemed to like... More
