I booked a Saturday night (£20 supplement) at the hotel as part of a 5pm.co.uk deal which included 1 night accommodation, 2 course dinner for 2, bottle of wine (for your room) on arrival, breakfast. The deal was really worth it £90, we have stayed at the hotel before around 4 years ago and really liked it so snapped up the offer when we saw it. The rooms are large with great views but are in need of some work (some areas of mold in the bathroom and around the window). We were in the end rooms, in the building with the slanted roof. The views of Loch Leven and the surrounding mountains are great. Also if it was better weather there were picnic benches outside our room that would have been great.
The bottle of wine we received via a voucher for the bar and we expected this to have been a 'cheap' bottle of plonk (this has been the case at a previous hotel) but in fact we were offered an £18 bottle of Pinot Grigio from the bar with ice bucket - great! We booked a table for dinner and were put in the back room that was deserted at the time but was soon full and buzzing as the hotel was fully booked. There were some minor things with dinner, having to wait a bit longer than normal etc but the food and service was fine. The menu offered as part of the deal was good, no complaints.
( Though I was annoyed to see the same offer 1 month later with a different 'voucher company' £15 cheaper at £75).
The bar area, I still think needs a bit of work. It is lacking in atmosphere because if is too bright and is more of a hotel lobby than a bar. Perhaps more booths, corners and tables would be better. It really is just alot of couches in a brightly lit room with no music.
We remembered that the last time we visited the hotel we had breakfast in our room for an extra £2.50 per person, so went ahead and did this again. The breakfast was outstanding, a full cooked breakfast, tea, coffee, croissants, muffins, orange juice. All included in the price. Really enjoyed having this in our room with our nice view.
I would recommend the Isles of Glencoe but wouldn't want to pay the full price of accommodaton as it is in need of some refurbishment, but the management appear to know about this and the price we paid was more than reasonable.
