We had our Wedding reception here and we could not fault this place a tall. All the staff were lovely. Helped us out a lot. A lot of our family were staying here as well for an over night and they all enjoyed there stay. The Alona went way and above our expectations and nothing was ever too much trouble.In our Honeymoon suite we had a small bottle of champagne, strawberries with choc and a wedding card waiting for us when we went into the room we thought that was a lovely touch. A big Thank you to all the Alona staff for looking after us and and our guests. We would defo recommend.

I had seen the murder mystery night advertised locally and thought why not!

What a night! It was fantastic! The food was top class, I had the soup to start, then the beef. One of the nicest cuts of beef I've had in a long time! The staff were fantastic! Very attentive and friendly!

The murder mystery night itself was brilliant! Great fun, everyone seemed to enjoy it and then had a boogie with the disco!

The hotel room was great! Clean, spacious and a walk in shower! Breakfast was also very tasty no square sausage :( however the breakfast selection was large! Great for soaking up the alcohol!

All in all, a great night! Will remember it for a while! Cheers Alona :)

we have just spent a weekend for my husbands 80th birthday and the staff, the food and the environment we found excellent. We had a large party for dinner on the saturday night and the service and help was really good. Everyone was very impressed with the food. A wee group played music all night and it was very relaxing to listen to. The views of the loch and park were lovely and a nice place for a brisk walk around the loch. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the reception staff were most helpful on arrival and during our staff - especially Gary with the welcoming glass of wine! Very typical Scottish hospitablity.Would definately recommend this hotel to others.

We arrived on the 23rd of March. We were warmly welcomed by Gary at reception and immediately felt at home. We received complimentary drinks which was a nice touch as we were celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary.
Our room was excellent! We were moved to the front due to a wedding reception being held and we greatly appreciated this. The room was spotless. The only fault I found was the lip marks on the glasses in the bathroom which was slightly off putting however there were coffee mugs we could use instead. My boyfriend visited the bar later in the evening to get some ice for our drinks and a new glass. He immediately commented on how helpful and polite the bar staff were.
Breakfast was delicious. Staff were again very attentive and the view over the loch was lovely and really made for a relaxing breakfast.
We only live 10 miles away but will definitely be back! I cannot stress enough how lovely the staff were. It really made our stay. They are a compliment to the hotel and they should be rewarded for their polite manner and professionalism as well as being so friendly and helpful. Thank you to everyone for making our stay so enjoyable!

Lovely hotel with good sizes bedrooms and nice bathrooms. Good restaurant for lunch or an evening meal.

Great breakfast buffet, well worth a visit.. Good deals through late rooms...

The walk round the lake takes just over an hour..

Room Tip: Top floor overlooking the lake. For a nice view .
