This was to be our rest hotel with a bit of luxury while doing the West Highland Way. We walked from Trydrum enjoying our mini heat wave in April, arriving just after 1pm we sat out the back on the sun deck until our 3pm check in time (room may have been ready but we were not in a rush)
Even though there were more than a dozen walkers getting a drink before walking further or checking in you had to wait for anyone to come behind the bar and they would disapear as soon as they served.
The hotel is very modern, clean and plenty of room. We checked into our room which was large, but we had paid for this, not a great for your money, but there is not much competition in the area.
Dinner was ok, nothing special, service slow again.
For breakfast it was a nightmare for walkers, not served until 8am, by the time we had been shown our seat and our order taken it was 8.30am, 3 members of staff trying to serve guests from the hotel and the bunkhouse, very slow and you got forgot about. food was ok when it arrived, didnt get coffee I had ordered or toast. it was way past 9am before we left, so no quick starts for us that morning.
All in all it was a bit of luxury let down by the lack of staff, double the price of a similar hotel in fort william, if I could get the same room at half the price I would stay again.
