Excellent food,both breakfast and dinner. The view from the dining room of the loch are fantastic. Warm family atmosphere with the owner being on site. Way off the beaten track so nice and quiet. Rooms are kept clean and tidy by the hard working Romanian staff. Not all things work all the time in the bathroom department but acceptable. Will... More

Loved the location and the accommodation. The hotel staff were fantastic and professional in every way and the restaurant food was first class. being dog friendly was a bonus. The hotel is ideal for heading out to the beautiful local areas. We were concerned about some negative reviews prior to staying but we need not have worried. its not the... More

Well where do I start. Stayed here for 3 nights and I must say it was such a disappointment. We travelled all the way from Worcestershire to a dump absolute joke. Accommodation was horrendous, the toilet broke after I used it and it nearly flooded the bathroom (I had to ask for another room) the water was brown (yeah ok... More

Friendly staff, all OK. Nice food in restaurant and super breakfasts (try the kippers). There were 6 of us and we all enjoyed ourselves. Great views over the loch and a quiet location. Good selection of beers, wine and spirits. Special mention to Beatrice who worked tirelessly to make sure service was good.

well, we booked at one of the shows and in the pictures we saw at the show it was a fantastic offer. Like everyone else, went home and looked at the reviews and wonder what we had pay for. Anyway, we booked for one of the rooms at the back, but because of the water rushing down to the lake... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay here. I travelled with my husband, 3year old daughter and little dog. We booked a loch side apartment which was perfect for us. The bedroom upstairs was large and nicely presented, though our little girl slept in here and we had a sofa bed downstairs. The view was amazing and the... More

vomit smell, broken floor, hole in ceiling, deck dangerous with rotted railings. Staff were awful. The ambience was Eastern European due to loud voices of foreign labor shouting at each other in native tongue. What an embarrassment for Scotland. Went across the Loch and stayed at Taycraggan... Worth it to get away from Portsonachan misery.
