Just returned from a 5 day trip with Lochs and Glens. Our forth trip with them but the first at this hotel and they have it down to a fine art.
The coach was warm and comfortable and safely driven through icy roads. We were greeted by a member of staff who boarded the coach and quickly handed out room numbers, so there was no queueing at reception ,just welcoming staff pointing you in the right direction ,within 5 minutes of arrival we were in our room and our luggage delivered to the door.
The room was clean, comfortable and cosy , it was -7 outside.
The log fire in reception was a cheery meeting place as we gathered for our evening meal, which you had to check the times for as they are on a rota, there are 3 sittings but in different areas of the dining room so your allocated table is yours for the duration.
The set menu always had 3 or 4 choices for each of the three courses. At £146 for a 5 day trip we did not expect a la carte but we couldn't fault the basic good food, well cooked and presented , served by smiling, courteous staff.
The entertainment, which isn't compulsory, a local musician, bingo etc. would not have suited
youngsters but a mid week trip in early Feb is bound to be full of pensioners, a lively bunch even so.
Breakfast was superb, choice of cereals etc., whatever you wanted, the full Scottish fry up was a delight, no grease, and endless tea coffee and toast, we were set up for the day.
The hotel overlooks the river and the loch , we did a pleasant walk up through the woodland and alongside the viaduct which feeds the hydro scheme.
Did three jolly trips to, Edinburgh, Blair Athol castle and Pitlochry.
Overall a good break, couldn't fault it, still don't know how they do it for the price! Great value.
