One of the best choices we ever made - and this is mainly due to the
athmosphere of the place. This was our first time in Scotland and we
just looked for a cheap and decent plave to stay near Loch Lomond.
This we found - and so much more. We got a real warm welcome from the
staff, we felt like coming for a private invitation. Well, the lovely
Lobby added to this feeling as it looks like a living room from the
18th century. We felt instantly drawn back in time - we could have
been in one of those Jane Austen films. Wonderful. Horses were
missing, though ;-). The rooms are large, furnished in style but
simple. The bed was perfect with lots of pillows. We had a wonderful
view to the surrounding landscape - no other houses or streets in
sight, just a large number of sheep. This was also the only sound we
heard, meeh-meeh. Will not forget this. The bathroom was large but
was very basic and needed renovation, this is the only negative
comment I can make. No wifi in rooms (this adds to the 18th century
feeling) but there is free wifi in the Lobby. Breakfast was ok if you
are Scot (full scottish breakfast with black pudding, sausage, bacon,
beans, mushroms etc), for German standards it is a bit heavy. Well -
this added to the feeling we so enjoyed.
In short: Perfect place for a typical holiday, good value, very
friendly staff and a perfect lobby. Only 4 points because the place
needs renovation in bathroom and also the exteriour. We would come
back anytime. And thanks to the lovely staff.
