“Good food shame we were charged twice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

At the time seemed a good place to stay. Good location, good food, bunks adequate. However this was two weeks ago and we have not had a refund for the over charging. Having been charged twice we were further upset by being charged more than the web site stated. We now have to go through the banks to get a refund. Beware. If you have to stay here pay cash.

We stayed here in early June. Had a lovely time couldn't fault it, nice couple running things and met a lot of nice people too :-).

P.S amazing sandwiches the next day ... never had camembert & apple sandwiches before but after walking miles on the moor were a big treat!!!

Thanks again

All the best & we'll see you again soon Andy & Wee Joan

We met a very friendly couple, after a day's walking on the West Highland Way. Okay, you had to make your own bed and we slept with 7 people in the bunkroom. But the food was very good and it was a great experience to sleep on a railway station that is still in use. (the last train ran at 21.30 and the first in the morning at 8.15; no problem for us)

Arrived after walking 19 miles on our west highland way...to be greeted with Steve the owner shouting "CLEAR OFF" then swaying out the door and laughing loudly.
We couldnt believe how drunk he was .When he then tried to show us to our room he nearly fell from the platform onto the tracks.
He was supposed to bring us our bedding and came along three times forgetting each time what he came along for ...
We went to the common room for a coffee ,and had to keep from laughing at Steve trying to serve 3 guests there dinner .
We had been fortunate enough to bring our own food and drink and if it was a party then Steve and Helen would make good company as they certainly know how to party (even if it was on our drink)
Steve then informed us he would be there from 5 in the morning .....the other guests had breakfast booked at 7.30 and by the time 8.00 oclock came one of the guests went to his caravan to wake him up .
We are extremely easy going people and take things as we find them however, I feel its a bit of a shame about this beautiful wee sleeper.It could be a really good place to stay if indeed it was cleaned up (allot) and had decent bedding provided.
Steve and Helen really should not be drinking to this level when they have paying customers to attend to.We wont be returning as long as they are in charge and thats a real shame.

Don't stay here. If you must, do not give the owner your credit card details. I was harged for 2 other peoples accomodation as well as someone elses washing!!!! I was not even offered a refund.
The couple that run the sleeper were also not very nice. When they weren't arguing with each other they were slagging off the other guests.
Terrible experience.

We stayed in different hotels for the 6 nights of our West Highland way walk and I really enjoyed staying here. The rooms are basic but very clean, the staff were really friendly and the food is not cheap but it was the best out of everywhere we stayed. There was somewhere to dry our boots and wet clothes which is excellent. The restaurant is very relaxed which is perfect after a long day walking and it was great that the staff picked us up. If you are looking for luxury then this is not for you, if you are looking for somewhere that is comfortable, value for moneym friendly staff, good food and you can dry your clothes this is perfect. We are going to go here one night and walk just that part of the WHW, just so that we can stay there again.

Room Tip: Phone before you get there, to give them notice to collect you from the car park,
