Like many of the other customers we met on our visit, we had all arrived with very low expectations after reading many of the TripAdvisor reviews...and were all more than please try suprised. The location was beyond spectacular, and every member of staff was polite, helpful and extremely accommodating. We stayed in a Loch side apartment which was very clean... More

We purchased this break at a Food Fair and after reading the reviews were not very hopeful! Our fears were completely founded! On arrival the older of the two receptionists was very unhelpful and quite aggressive. We have stated that we would require two rooms and this was confirmed via email but on arrival we found that they had only... More

We stayed in the hotel, our room overlooked the back of the hotel, so no stunning view. The room was tiny and not very clean, very dusty chest of drawers. Our bathroom had a shower off the bath taps but no shower curtain. Our towels were not changed and the bathroom was not cleaned on a daily basis. After two... More

Having purchased a three night stay at a very reasonable price whilst at the Ideal Home Exhibition, I was very apprehensive about this trip with my daughter, especially after having read one or two not so glowing reviews. It is, as warned , in the middle of nowhere which is a very good thing in my opinion. The setting is... More

My partner and I are a young couple and booked our stay at a local agri show. We chose to stay in the hotel with included breakfast. We paid £198 for the double room for three nights. Once we read some of the reviews we were a little worried!! We made sure we had plenty of bottled water as we... More

We stayed in 'Jura' which is a chalet overlooking the lake. The accommodation has a kitchen and dining area with the bed and bathroom upstairs - all floors overlooking the splendid lake. The accommodation is very good, the only let down is the shower room on the ground floor. The shower doesn't have a shower door, which when having a... More

We stayed in one of the loch-side cabins along the road from the hotel. We had a three bed with sauna, patio with built in barbecue and both bathroom and shower next to the sauna. The kitchen was well stocked with a dishwasher and washing machine as well as cooker and fridge. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable.... More

We were exceptionally pleased with the food and service at the Portsonachan Hotel this past weekend. It could not have gone better - the food was delicious and the wait staff were perfect. The management were friendly and helpful. Its a beautiful, calm and relaxing place to spend some time. I'm really looking forward to going back again. Highly recommended!

Arrived early 3 hours early, after a 6 hour drive. Staff bent over backwards to ensure our accomodation was ready early, we were in 1 of the lodges "Duart". On arrival at the lodge almost 3 hours before our check in time we found a 2 storey Lodge with upstairs and downstairs bathroom, a fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher and... More

This hotel is a disgrace, it's tired, worn out, unhelpful, poor service and fails in every respect. Having booked at the NEC and specifically requested the rooms adjacent to the hotel overlooking the loch they gave me the coach house! I would not keep my dog in there. They refused the loch side rooms saying they were all booked and... More
