We stayed at The Inversnaid Hotel in Feb/March 2013 as part of a Lochs & Glens coach holiday.
Before travelling I had read some of the Trip Advisor reviews, particularly the negative ones.
Having experienced the hotel first hand it seems that most of the individuals making those comments had missed the point.
The Inversnaid Hotel is owned and operated by Lochs & Glens Coach Holidays.
The hotel is really set up for customers on their coach tours, in particular the meal times.
The breakfasts and evening meals are timed specifically for the coach tourists.
When the coaches are out during the day the hotel is virtually empty, staff do attempt to cater for passing walkers but they are not the hotel's raison d'être.
We had travelled with Lochs & Glens in the past and chose the Inversnaid Hotel as the result of the personal recommendations of other visitors.
We were not let down. The hotel is completely charming, situated in a beautiful secluded location on the shore of Loch Lomond.
The exterior of the building had been recently re-painted.
The hotel's interior is decorated in typical Lochs & Glens style, with tartan curtains and carpets throughout. It is warm clean and welcoming. During the evening the hotel lobby was warmed by two open fires.
The staff, mainly European migrant workers, were all very efficient and pleasant.
The meals were good. When we stayed they were in different sittings according to the various coaches.
Our room, 240 was spacious and modern. It was on the second floor overlooking the adjacent Arklet Falls.
The icing on the cake for me was the daily journey in the hotel launch, across the loch to the coaches which were parked at Inverulglas.
Would we we stay again? Definitely!
But we'd also like to try some of Lochs & Glens other hotels, notably The Highland Hotel in Fort William and the new Ardgartan Hotel on Loch Long.
