“Beautiful location and very comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We were using this hotel as a starting point for walking half of the West Highland Way, so our stay was for one night only. Our room was very well appointed; the bed was comfortable and the en-suite clean and pleasant. Walker's shortbread biscuits on the tea tray! We ate in the bar for our evening meal, which was very good; I particularly enjoyed my chocolate sponge pudding with chocolate and orange sauce. Breakfast next morning was very good. We met the very affable owner with his lovely dog Hector, and we returned at the end of the walk 5 days later to have Sunday lunch before returning home. A good experience in a stunning setting - only caveat, beware the midges!

Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us while you walked the West Highland Way. We also wish there was something we could do about the midges, they can be quite bad in the summer. We hope it doesn't put you off returning in the future.

We went to this hotel for a late afternoon/early evening meal after taking a trip on the loch lomond ferry to Inversnaid. We both only wanted a single course due to our filling breakfasts at our b&b (see Ben Bheula). It was 5:30 & unfortunately the restaurant menu was not available until 6pm but the staff offered us the sandwiches/toastie options. Just the job. We both had haggis, cheddar & red onion toastie. When it arrived it was a full panini with curly fries & salad. It was a meal in itself & my wife was unable to finish hers. I being a gentleman tried in vain to assist but failed to finish it for her.
I think the price was about £7each

We spent one night there on the 10th September, the only disappointment was we didn't stay longer, we where touring Scotland and had to be in another place the next day, we will be returning next year for a little longer. The hotel is in an idyllic location with great views of Loch Lomand, the scenery is breathtaking, the hotel staff were very pleasant the rooms were clean and the restaurant was very good, there is a nice well stocked bar area to sit and unwind after your day. Looking forward to next year.

Room Tip: Rooms at front have views of Loch

This hotel is in a beautiful magical setting and we had a lovely stay, for two night. The food was good and all the staff polite and hard working. They were busy and the staff were trying hard to cope. The staff were all hard working young girls and they did a good job, keeping a clean and friendly hotel. We had a very happy stay there. The rooms are small, that's why they have a lower Mark.

Arriived here by pure accident when a booking via hoseasons went wrong, so glad it did. I booked the lodge as a birthday surprise for my huband for the last few years it it was bliss. Packed the car up with supplies and never moved for 4 days. It was more expensive for us as its an 8 berth and there was only 2 of us, but well worth it. The lodge braw, views wow, staff very attentive and food in hotel braw with huge portions. Dont know where people get the bad reviws. Awe well home to be there in our wee lodge this november all going well.
