We booked an executive room with a loch view for two nights dinner bed and breakfast. On arriving we found the room had armchairs with holes in the arms, cigarette burns on the floor and the window would not close without leaving a gap you could stick your finger in. We asked for another room having paid extra for the... More

Stayed for 3 nights and found the hotel comfortable and relaxing. Had a lovely big room overlooking the Loch. Only downside was very poor water pressure so the shower was a trickle! Delicious food. Bit too formal in the restaurant for us so ate two nights in the bar/lounge. Food still excellent but atmosphere a little more relaxed.

We arrived at Loch Rannoch very excited after a stay in another McDonald Hotel in Aberfoyle. We got into our room which was a small double but the view made up for it. Wonderful views of the Loch. All was perfect until I tried to have a shower. To say the shower gave just a trickle of water is an... More

.Great location, Food good, staff excelent. Bedrooms a bit tired but clean and comfortable. I think its a bit expensive in the grand scheme of things.Don't mind paying a premium for a nice hotel but room let it down with eighties furniture.

We had an excellent study st the Loch Rannoch Hotel. Food was excellent as was the friendly staff. Couldn't do enough for you. The location is central for the area and easy access to Pitlochry, Aberfeldy, Blair Atholl and more.
