“Excellent accomodation”

This was our third stay at Ben Lawers and as before, the accommodation was excellent. Spotlessly clean with everything you could need to make it a superb and comfortable stay.

The views across Loch Tay are breathtaking especially as we had terrific weather with brilliant sunny days and even managed breakfast on the balcony (in March!!). The house is "upside down" so you get the best views from the lounge upstairs.

The only thing to note is that the wifi is painfully slow but that is hardly the fault of the owners. We will definitely be returning as we love the area for walking and the accommodation is the "icing in the cake".

Homely and very comfy. Ben Lawers is the perfect get away from the city. The view of Loch Tay is breath taking and the house is spot on with all you think you might need. More expansive than a night at the Hilton but totally worth it!

“Beautiful setting, amazing apartment, perfect place”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My partner and I have visited and stayed in the area many times, including Taymouth Marina. We love Kenmore so much we are getting married there next year and many of our family are staying in Taymouth Marina so we really couldn't recommend it highly enough.

We recently came up for the weekend and had a lovely time in Ben Lawers, having BBQ's on the balcony, going for lovely walks and enjoying a glass of wine over looking the Loch Tay. We were very lucky to have amazing weather too, it really is a perfect setting. The apartments are great, well furnished, well stocked, beautiful views - you could stay in your apartment the entire time and never tire of the view. They also have the most comfortable sofas ever!

The staff are really helpful and friendly, there is lots to do near by for couples/families/friends including the lovely Taymouth Marina Restaurant.

We will definitely return.

“lovely property, great view a few small issues”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

this is a very well situated property in a small development overlooking Loch tay. Its in the front row of houses and therefore has an excellent view. It is well decorated and equipped altho I think we now expect some consumables to be provided,ie dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc which weren't. On our visit the broadband was not working and there were no instruction booklets, for the Television/DVD/ freeview boxes or for the washing machine, dishwasher or heating system. We mastered them all but these items are getting more complex all the time and instructions would help a lot.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay but apologise about the couple of issues you mentioned. It is our policy that washing up liquid and dishwasher tabs are left for guests and I will certainly take this up with the cleaners. I will also look into the lack of instructions as these should have been available for you. Thank you for raising these points as it is always so helpful to get this kind of feedback as it enables me to keep on top of these little things that I may otherwise not be aware of. Hope we have the pleasure of accommodating you again sometime. Many thanks, Angela

Just about perfect accommodation.Starting at the entrance room for rucksacs and walking boots, bedrooms good storage , comfy beds and good quality bedding. Roomy family bathroom plus en-suite off second bedroom. Well-equipped kitchen and utility room with washer. Balcony with a great view across the loch and no midges whilst we were there. Efficient service and prompt reply to emails. Wi-fi variable (not the fault of the owner.)

“Fab-u-lous”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Wonderful views, well equipped cottage with plenty of mod cons.
Attention to detail is very good.
A couple of problems we had were attended to swiftly and efficiently.
internet access was a bit hit and miss over the weekend but the location is quite remote on the plus side our mobile had the best signal we have ever had!

Thank you for your kind words, we really appreciate you taking the time to put this review on TA. I'm afraid the WiFi speed is a BT problem but I am constantly working on them to get it improved. The joys of our wonderful, rural location! Many thanks, Angela
