Basically the wait to order is far too long, the wait for food is not to bad because it is freshly cooked, however 3.5 hours for a three course meal is a bit much considering we were probably only eating for 30-40 minutes of it. However Very good food and nice rooms. However some beds are tucked extremely close to... More

We were made very welcome by the staff - everyone was very friendly & obliging. The hotel was a little tired & shabby in parts, but clean & comfortable. The food was very good - I particularly liked the roast pork - just delicious & very tender. Good-sized portions too. Breakfasts were tasty with refills of drinks & toast, &... More

Very nice well appointed rooms. Quite homely. Comfortable bed; all beautifully clean. The food in the restaurant is absolutely superb I'd thoroughly recommend it!! At £78 a night it's not budget, but it dor deliver.

Visited here with my family in June. Food was delicious, great menu choice and reasonable priced. Vegetable Risotto was amazing as was my Pine nut tart?? For dessert. Portions were a good size. Lovely to sit and look over the Loch, lovely chilled out experience. Service was good, couldn't fault it.

Visited the restaurant with a party of family and friends for dinner, having booked in advance. Out of a total of 12 choices of main course, the waitress said that only three were gluten-free, and there was no offer to adapt any of the others. Nowadays most eating places are much more coeliac-friendly and offer a good range of choices.... More

Soups very poor and disappointingly small portions. Chowder thin, watery and only tasted of fennel. Ham and lentil bland. Lamb hot pot child size portion at best. Vegetable accompaniment consisted of 2 small new potatoes, 1 floret of broccoli and 1 of cauliflower and a smear of carrot puree. Complained about portion sizes but response came back.

Food good but overpriced a smoked salmon salad cost us more than the sirloin steak! Service slow and impertinent! We mentioned home made bread was with the salad, she argued, saying no that was with the soup! Did we want to check the menu and after we asked for some bread she brought a basket of supermarket sliced bread! She... More

We completely enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Staff could not do enough to help in any way they could. Evening meal and breakfast was decent enough. Rooms and public areas clean. Opportunity to mix with the locals in the public bar and hear the native tongue being spoken. Only downside was the shower which reacted to water pressure and... More

Stunning location on the banks of a beautiful loch, and very handy for trips to the magical Callandish stones and some gorgeous deserted beaches. Also lovely walks right on the doorstep and the staff, who were very friendly, helpful and approachable, were happy to advise on routes and outings. The meals were freshly cooked and delicious, and the cooked breakfast... More

An excellent dog friendly place to stay. We got an 'outside' room with very generous space and our own front door!! Ate the most amazing piece of roasted cod for dinner in the bar (where doggie came too and was given a doggie bag - large piece of tasty fish skin). Staff were very pleasant and helpful. After a tasty... More
