We booked a 3 night package a week or so in advance because some friends who had already booked persuaded us to join them. We were offered an apartment in 'the Coach House'. It was indeed a former coach house which had been converted some time ago. It was dark, damp and cold and desperately in need of some TLC.... More

If you are looking for a filthy, dilapidated hotel with friendly but incompetent staff and inedible food this is the place for you! The hotel was supposedly rennovated in 2010 but I saw no sign of this; windows and doors wouldn't open or close properly, paintwork was chipped and tatty, light bulbs didn't work or were non-existent and the television...

Please look closely at the good reviews, the majority of them are from people with 1 or 2 visits. The reason for this is that they are false reviews put up by the hotel, as to boost up all the mediocre ones from real guests. I made the mistake of booking this hotel through a show, I booked a lodge... More

Like many others we booked a 3 day stay at a show, then read the reviews thinking we had made a mistake. However we were pleasantly surprised. We had a lodge which we were offered for a small cost with two bedrooms a sauna and two bathrooms. The view from the lodge was great. We found the staff friendly and... More

We got a special deal for three nights at this hotel whilst at an exhibition. Once home, we read some off putting reviews of the hotel but when I phoned to book, I was assured by the receptionist that all would be well. We arrived and it was beautiful.The long, single track road had many passing places and it was... More

Like many others we bought a 3 night break at a show for a bargain £99 each B&B. Whilst at the show we checked some dates, and were told we were in luck we could have a lochside apartment for bank holiday weekend. Indeed the apartments were marked on the leaflet so we knew where we were staying. We rang... More

This hotel has a beautiful location and the building itself has so much potential. We stayed 2 nights on our trip further north and then one night on our return journey. Our room was the furthest from the reception and up 2 flights of stairs with no lift and no help from any of the staff. It was fairly clean... More

The location of the hotel cannot be faulted, we could see Ben Cruachan from our bedroom. The service was willing but unreliable and the food really was the poorest quality possible. We fixed the toilet ourselves, the television tuning was fixed half way through our stay when after 2 reminders I fetched the person responsible and escorted him to our... More

As we neared the Hotel we were full of delight as the view was spectacular. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived at the hotel. We had to wait 10 minutes to book in as there was no-one on reception. Our hearts sank as we looked around to see lots of dead flies on the window sill. We were shown to... More

We stayed at this hotel last week, having booked for 3 nights we loved it so much we stayed for an extra night. We have certainly have no complaints and the people who do complain should get out into the real world where life is never perfect. Our apartment was clean and spacious, the bed comfortable. A fresh bottle of... More
