“Setting for the Adams family!”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

What a fantastic setting but who designed the interior of this hotel?? It is soooo dark it doesn't reflect the lovely setting of the loch at all. Our room was like a funeral parlour dark walls the lighting was poor, we had to ask for another standard lamp which still wasn't enough to give a nice atmosphere to the room. Even the light shades are dark which is pointless.
We ate in the boathouse, we have been before it has a nice atmosphere lovely and bright. The staff have dreadful t-shirts on so it was hard to know who was working and who was a guest, this was partly due to 3 members of staff walking passed us with no greeting set all. The meal was 'ok' overpriced as usual. The service was as good as the mcdonalds in balloch. Overall I would say go to the duck bay, a much better menu and professional staff not young kids serving.

Having stayed at Cameron house twice this year I can honestly say we will absolutely be staying again next year. I think with this hotel especially you are much better off staying for a few nights, there is so much to do and if done over a couple of days there is nowhere better to do it.

In the summer myself and my girlfriend stayed in a standard double room and although the room was lovely the hotel was very busy and so the service was just ok. The golf complex, The Carrick, along with the Spa is exceptional - massively recommend this as something to do whilst at the hotel. The Spa is the best we've ever been to, the Golf isn't far off. At night we ate at both Duck Bay next door (highly recommend) and then also the bar grill as part of the hotel. Overall the stay was good apart from a few things which I think could have been slightly better.

On our second return to the hotel, November 2013, I can report we had the best hotel experience we have ever had. This hotel, it's service, the food and it's surroundings has absolute set itself apart. We stayed in one of the Whiskey Suites - well worth paying a bit extra for - and wow was it worth it. The grill bar meal we had was exceptional and the whiskey experience at the bar in the hotel afterwards was brilliant!

Overall, I'd suggest winter instead of summer, the scenery from the hotel is breathtaking. In terms of accommodation there isn't a bad option at this hotel, but for a truly fantastic stay it's worth staying in a whiskey suite. Food and drink in the hotel is superb and the staff are fantastic, especially the management team.

Absolutely recommend staying here!

We stayed here for a one night spa break which we could not fault. The spa was beautiful and the spa staff were very pleasant. Our room was lovely but we had booked a twin room and were given a double. We mentioned to the brunette receptionist that the room was a double room and she informed us that it would be changed with Turn down service. She either did not know hotel policy or was palming us off as the room was never changed and I later saw in the room on a card that you have to request a turn down service by calling a number. She also did not change our restaurant booking. I will mention the concierge who made our stay fabulous and were on the ball throughout! A beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting just needing a little push at reception.

Just love this place! Took my mum as a treat for her 80th with family. The reception staff ( Sophie I think was the ladies name )were so kind and sent up a tray of sweets with a birthday message and upgraded us to junior suites with lovely loch views. The swimming pool is great - lovely and warm and a good size for swimming. Also a great jacuzzi and sauna. This is all in the hotel and included in our room rate. The concierge and his team are great and parked our car for us they were very friendly and helpful. Thanks for another great stay! Look forward to coming back.

Just back from an overnight stay at Cameron House, from start to finish the service was excellent, used the valet service, Russell was a lovely and very helpful young man. We had the tasting menu at Martin Wishart's restaurant, food as always from MW was amazing, service was excellent, thanks to Mark the restaurant manager whom we have met at Leith and the Honours in Edinburgh, he made us feel really welcome. The Scots bar is a must, lovely cocktails and whiskey. Breakfast was very good too, a great selection. We will definitely go back for a longer period. Location overlooking Loch Lomond is Awsome.

Room Tip: A Loch view is a must!

Could not believe how dark the rooms were, the lighting was really bad, mind you it was on the dark side throughout the hotel. The room had an enormous comfy bed and apart from the noisy fan (room 14) couldn't find fault with anything else. Breakfast very good. Has a really nice swimming pool with pool table and table hockey upstairs. We chose a garden room as it was the most reasonably priced - but to be honest not much of a "garden". Valet parking was a nice touch.
Minus - No magnifying mirror in the bathroom
Plus - Has to be the views...

We recently attending a wedding here and stayed the entire weekend. What you would expect for a Scottish hotel, tartan everywhere, fireplaces, dark and cosy. Right next to the Loch so beautiful view from the bar. Lots of activities on this property so you can go any season and enjoy it. Rooms were good and cosy... not the most modern.. so a few things in the room could use some refreshing but nothing major. Had a huge bed which was very comfy. We had an issue with keeping the heating regulated but was fine in the end. Restaurant on hotel property is excellent as well. Worth it, stay here.
