Billed as a romantic luxury hotel, we had high hopes. A long way off the beaten track. Arrived to an average welcome and the staff watched as my heavily pregnant wife and I struggled up the maze of back stairs to the room. Which at best was shabby chic. True, the views were great over the loch. The whole hotel needs serious money spent on it - the outside is in a bad state, interior is well worn (dining room sports a heavy green paint slapped all over it), and tennis court completely overgrown. The food was ok, although the award winning chef has now departed. Given the location, it is a captive audience and the prices reflect that. Take your own booze and sandwiches for a picnic (nothing else to do during the day) as it is not value for money. It has the capacity to be as good as the other reviews state, but certainly not worth the price nor the time to get there. Caveat emptor!
