We booked a wooden lodge that belongs to the hotel for November 2015 and came to Scotland with a few friends in a short tour to visit the castles. Minor issues we encountered, like mould in th shower and squeaking noises from the windows hinges. But I am not here to complain about this minor things, just the unprofessional service... More

We arrived to be told that although we had paid to upgrade our hotel room to a loch side view we were being up-upgraded to a lochside suite - this meant a loch side self catering cottage - because work was being done in the hotel rooms. There was a notice on reception which said because the water was so... More

We stayed 3 nights, wish it has been 3 weeks, but hey ho. Staff were excellent as usual, Gary, the manager couldn't do enough for us and the other staff were phenomenal.... More

This is a really nice easy place to stay. We had a newly redecorated loch-view room and it was lovely. We'd read reviews saying the hotel is 'tired' - not so. It's very comfortable and clean and the rooms have everything you need. The owner is onsite and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is right next... More

For what you pay as part of one of the deals you cannot fault it. We stayed at the hotel between the Xmas & the New Year and had a very pleasent stay. We read all the iffy reviews and feared the worse, but everything was fine. Not your 4/5 star accommodation, but you are not paying 4/5 star prices.... More

To be honest, we booked this for the lovely location and didn't have high expectations of the hotel. It looked a bit tired on the photos we had seen and although that turned out to be true, it was much better than we expected and the views made up for that. The staff and guests were all very friendly and... More

We had a family room at the rear for 1 night and a family room at the front for two, when it became available. Definitely recommend the room a the front - the view is fabulous. Food was great - suited us all (2 children age 8) Surroundings great. Long way from anywhere - you need a car!
