By and large the hotel was good with the exception of dinner on the first night which looked like it had been cooked before and re-heated in the microwave! Hence we did not eat there on the second night!! Room was very comfortable and warm even though it was on the small side and overlooked the road although there was... More

I stayed at this comfortable, quiet hotel whilst doing a course in a nearby town. Absolutely blew away with the value for money, the relaxed atmosphere and the surrounding areas beauty. The bar and restaurant were perfect, serving great food with lots of choice and all types of Beers, Ales and Cider on tap. Very hard working staff and generous... More

Went on a one-night Groupon deal. Nothing to complain about as the room, dinner and breakfast represented very good value for money. Free car parking and free wifi, despite earlier reviews. Would definitely do again.

Stayed here recently on 2 night Living Social deal which at first seemed good value. Hotel looks nice from outside and the interior is also nice. Rooms are a bit on small side and have only double beds where most hotels have at least king size. There is very little wardrobe space. It has only an open space with room... More

Stayed here for one night with my family including 2 children under 5. Food and room was first class. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially Joanne behind the bar who really looked after my grandson, making his stay more enjoyable. The family room was brillant. Lively bar and great music. Top class

We purchased a Groupon for Spa with Afternoon Tea at the 'Spa at Ostan Loch Altan' and decided to book in for an overnight stay at the hotel. When we arrived we discovered that the spa is not part of the hotel at all but is in a house to the rear of the hotel & separately owned. So really... More
