We thoroughly enjoyed our short break in an absolutely stunning location. The room was very comfortable with a great view of the loch, and the dinner of a very good standard. All that was missing was having the log fire lit!

We stayed here for our 42nd anniversary courtesy of The Sunday Post completion. Our room overlooked the Loch and Schehalian mountain. Stunning! The room was very comfortable. The staff were all extremely professional, efficient and so friendly.

A great 2 night stay on B&B autumn deal B&B terms. Outstanding value - if our room was a standard room the executive rooms must be very special. We had outstanding views from our room over the Loch and beyond. The staff were very welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed to show genuine interest in their guests and their wellbeing. We ate...

This is a nice hotel, in the middle on nowhere. If you want quite (and lots of nothingness), then head here. Nice bar with open fire, lots of board games to chill out with the wife (or family). Great pool. No life guard though - so look after the kiddies!! Rooms are a little "80's" looking but TBH, you go...

We visit every year and just love it. I agree that the hotel is dated in parts but I feel this adds to the charm. We had a lovely meal at the bar then played board games around the fire. The most beautiful location and lovely to enjoy. Great staff

Visited here in November for 2 nights with a £99 voucher for B&B for 2 which seemed like a bargain and an ideal relaxing weekend. Location of the hotel is more or less the middle of nowhere.

We've stayed here several times but on this most recent visit we noticed how tiered and dated the hotel is getting, it needs an up grade. The decor is sad and nothing matches, too many tartans! We had a very bad dinning experience, £68.00 for some soup and pasta and it wasn't even great pasta. Its a shame because we...
