This trip was taking advantage of a KGB deal to go and see the West Highland Railway, so expectation was not really high. What a pleasant surprise. You have to be going by car to get round this area, and there is plenty of off road parking available. The surrounding scenery is stunning - literally on the lochside with spectacular views. The greeting is friendly and very efficient. You know that you are not going to get a great room on a deal - maybe so but this room (17) was pleasant to enter, and although the bathroom is small, the other boxes get ticked. Clean, reasonably comfortable, modern flat screen TV, tea/coffee making facilities. The other impressions just make the whole stay more pleasant - some effort has gone into keeping the decor OK - the dinner menu may be limited but it has some choice, and the meal arrives hot - the staff are really friendly and I got a real impression that they care about what they do. Morning is good too - the shower is nice, and the breakfast is a lovely cooked one, and it arrives hot. At this point, you may start to think all is too perfect, but yes there are some negatives, albeit small ones for our trip. The building is old and probably extended many times - this means that there are many level changes as you move around to bedrooms so there are lots of steps which could be a challenge to some. If you are an early riser, you may have to wait quite a long time for the water to get hot for your shower. Did those spoil our stay? No, not at all. I really enjoyed the stay here for 3 nights. And I would go back.
