I stayed here three times on business during 2011.
It is a beautiful spot right next to the loch, where I went for a walk in the evening at waterside. When I went again it was colder and I walked down to a bar about 100 yards further down which contains a bowling alley.
On arrival at the hotel I was met by a very friendly receptionist. Great first impression, then they offered me a glass of wine which after a long drive was greatly appreciated. What was really impressive was when I went back for another visit the receptionist welcomed me and even remembered my name weeks later.
The room was very comfortable. On one occasion I stayed at the rear facing on to a very large car park I think for the theme park. That night several cars decided to use it as a racetrack but that only lasted about half an hour and was before 11pm so my sleep wasnt disturbed. The next time I was in a room at the front and it was very quiet.
I have to comment on the food. Breakfast was excellent good cooked option with cereal and usual healthy options available. The evening meal was a very pleasant surprise and for an individual business traveller I found the quality and taste very enjoyable also well served. The staff were excellent in every aspect. The only real issue I found was an initial problem getting a wifi signal in the room however when mentioned the hotel sorted it out quickly. This hotel was recommended to me by a local worker and to be honest I would also consider staying there for a private break.
