“almost perfect”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Great staff, good food. Nice size room, great blinds and curtain, so room was nice and dark. Wifi, not too bad, better downstairs in bar and restaurant. Helped with luggage (thanks James). Fitted us into restaurant for dinner, which is very busy with locals. Only issue, and a big one, was no pressure in shower. When I mentioned this in the morning, they had also had another guest say the same thing. They apologised, and would get it looked at. Overall very good, would stay again, and hopefully have a loch view.

Jackie (assistant manager) provided excellent customer service, warm and welcoming, showing an interest and we felt our custom was valued. The rest off the staff also were friendly and helpful.
Room 2 had a lovely view across the loch, comfortable bed with modern facilities. Maybe a wee bit overpriced but we would return.
Food at the restaurant was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced.
Thank you for a lovely stay.

We stayed local and unfortunately dinner wasn't available. However, our host recommended the Village Inn. Although it was extremely busy, you would never have known that by the staff manner. They were so nice and pleasant although the were rushed off their feet. They made us feel as if we were the only important customers in there and listening to the chat they were having with other customers, they were the same with them. The food was delightful with a very extensive menu. The portion size was so generous, we had no room left for desert. We would consider travelling to it again just for dinner/lunch. Worth an hour and a half drive. The price was less than £30 for 2 steak pie and potatoes/chips and two veg. Washed down with a soft drink and a pint. Lovely.

We only ate here in the passing but the food was fantastic as was the helpful & polite staff. The Inn was packed, every table full but the level of service never dropped! Very reasonably priced too. Fantastic character in the decor & a homely feel. Will certainly return & stay here in the future. We were recommended this Inn by our b&b host Paula.

My girlfriend and I have stayed twice and love it here. It is fantastic in every aspect! The rooms have been clean both time, the staff friendly and the food is top notch. The bar/pub section is also great and boasts a wood fire and a great selection of ales. The breakfast is also fantastic in the morning. There are always deals on for staying here and we are already planning our next visit.

We've just spent a night at the village inn after walking the cobbler. It's in a great location on the side of Loch Long and a great place to have a drink. The beer garden is perfect. The staff were very welcoming and the room was very nice(looks like it had just been refurbished). My only complaint is we were in room 5 which was on the ground floor and it sounded like Shrek was staying in the room above with the amount of thudding every time they walked.
I would advise booking a table if you stay for a meal as it gets booked up. It is definitely worth eating here as the food was very nice.
If your thinking of going i'd book the Village Inn, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor as it's a old building with very noisy floorboards

Had a great nice stay here. All the staff we came across were really friendly and the location is just perfect, right on the loch side with beautiful views. There is also a really nice walk up the hills behind the inn.

We had 3 meals here and all were really tasty (although the description didn't always quite match the menu). The food was fresh and portions were a good size. Very good choice for breakfast in the morning. We had room 2, request this one! The views from the bed are beautiful and it's just been redecorated to a high standard.

Only downside is that you can't set up a tab so have to settle up each time, not a big issue but would be good to be able to leave a deposit and then settle up on check out.

Room Tip: Room 2: Beautiful views over Loch Long.
