We stayed for two nights at the end of Sept 2011 and thought the hotel was great.The owner and his wife who run the hotel were very accommodating.Our room was more than adequate with stunning views over the loch.The bathroom was different class,the spa bath was superb and after we lit the candles and opened a bottle of wine we took full advantage of it relaxing after a long drive followed by a long walk.With a large and very powerful power shower and lots of extra little luxuries i have to give it ten out of ten.(11 out of ten if matches had already been there to light the candles ).
We never tried the dinner menu as we had made plans to eat out in Fort William which was a big mistake with one of the choices we made,the italian restaurant called Stables was absolutely shocking.
we ordered a traditional Scottish breakfast from the menu and although it was very good we had good banter explaining to Stevie the owner that he had to get rid of the hash brown and replace it with a tattie scone and square sausage otherwise call it an English breakfast.The lounge area's were also very nice with again the stunning views and plenty to do with the amount of puzzles and boardgames available to use.
I have read other reviews on here and i never experienced the poor quality others have.I travel a bit and regularly stay in hotels and have learned not to build my expectations up with pictures or reviews of where im going to stay.some of the comments i have read are wholly innacurate.
My own negative points regards this hotel is that i would like to have wine glasses and an iron with board in the room as standard.
From what the owners have told me there is constant refurbishment and upgrading going on during the close season.I will stay again next year and hope to be impressed again with the new work thats getting done.
