We received this as a gift which was lovely. When we tried to book it through the internet we were told that the only day available to us was weeks away. As this was the middle of March we thought something wasn't quite right. My wife called and explained that it was a gift voucher from the hotel and suddenly we had a choice of dates. From what we have been told and I don't know how true it is but 5 PM had an afternoon tea deal and the hotel was limiting the numbers that could book on any given day. Now onto the day in question, if you have never been to Cameron house the setting is stunning on the banks of Loch Lomond looking towards Ben Lomond.
Afternoon tea to be honest wasn't very good, if you are a coffee lover be warned the coffee is dreadful. I had one sip and went to find the waitress to ask for some tea.
The sandwiches were arranged around the outer edge of the plate and there was not that many. The waitress who was on herself and very young was struggling to cope with simple requests, such as can we have some strawberry jam rather than the raspberry. The scones were lovely but on the small side.
Regarding the drawing room. the housekeeping is starting slip which is disappointing as the building deserves more. There are also far too many tables squeezed into the room which makes it feel cramped which is an achievement considering the size of the room.
I know we can all look back and say things used to be like this or like that however my recollection of Cameron House of old was always that it was trying to be the best, this fell far short of that. To be perfectly honest if you enjoy afternoon tea go elsewhere the only real positive of the day is the location of the hotel.
