I absolutely loved this hotel!
The hotel has the most wonderful location, stunning views, and the drive to the hotel is just beautiful.
We arrived at lunchtime and decided to head to the bar, where we managed to spend a couple of hours sampling lunch and drink! (well it was an awful day outside!). We checked in and was shown the menu for the evening which is a set menu. My other half was not keen on the main course and they were very happy to provide another option.
Our room was fantastic, with views across the Loch, comfortable bed (although not overly big) and a big bathroom with a seperate roll top bath.
Dinner was at 8pm so we headed to the bar earlier for drinks where we met with other diners/residents. Yes everyone went into dinner together but as they do not cater for a huge amount of people then it didn't feel quite like the mass exodous the previous reviewer had commented on. Food was fantastic as expected and the wine list brilliant.
Breakfast was served in the same room so had the views across the bay, which was lovely. It was just a pity we weren't staying for the 2 nights that we had orginially planned...I am already trying to plan when we can next go back.
