“bargain!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Stayed here after getting a laterooms deal for £39 b&b for 2!!. Knew the hotel from previous visits to killin but hadnt stayed there. Nice new conservatory overlooking river, friendly welcoming staff, cosy open fire in bar, great breakfast were all the plus points. The downside as had already been mentioned is the tired looking interior, especially the stairs and corridors. Surely wouldne take too much to freshen up to rate this hotel even higher. Our room over looked river, was small but clean and comfy. I will be back for sure.

My husband and I spent 10 days here in September. The hotel was the small established kind of place we prefer over the modern sites - I can stay at modern places when I travel in the U.S. We used the hotel location as a base to travel south to Glasgow and north to Inverness with shopping in Pitlochry and trip to the west coast near Oban. The room was clean and warm with all the amenities you need. The food was plentiful and we never had a bad meal (Steve liked the bar/beer of course). I can't say enough about how friendly the staff was. Traveling for us is all about the people you meet. I would definitely stay at the Killin Hotel again.

Visited the Killin hotel yet again on Saturday night.....
Phoned the hotel direct and got a room £10 less than late rooms....result!!
The hotel is getting better, brand new windows, conservatory etc. Bar was its usual sociable self.
This is not a 4* spa resort....it is a comfortable, pleasant scottish hotel with good food, reasonable drink prices and a bar well stocked with single malts.
If you don't like the Killin Hotel it's probably because you are used to plastic shoeboxes by hilton..........

Room Tip: New annex rooms are highly reccommended.....

I feel a little uncomfortable rating our recent experience at the Killin Hotel because we literally paid nothing for our rooms. However, this was the offer so I wasn't anticipating 4* luxury. We arrived to a very warm welcome but it was apparent immediately that this hotel is run down and needs a lot of attention. Obviously a lot of money has been spent on the lovely conservatory but not a lot on the decor/facilities in general. This is a big old property, run on a shoestring but it would be a pity to see it close down. We had a very nice meal on our first night, plenty of it and reasonably well cooked and presented though a little over-priced. Spoilt I fear by the drunk owner at the bar (well on the floor actually) later in the evening. What a pity his behaviour and that of his friends let the place down. However, we did our best to ignore them so our break wasn't spoilt. Breakfast was ample and again well presented. Our second night was uneventful and we left after the two nights having enjoyed our visit but I doubt I would stay again. The rooms are shabby and chilly though they have everything the traveller requires and more. The corridors/stairs etc are really scruffy and hostel-like but I think work might have been ongoing there - well they certainly had the builders working outside my son's room. The staff here are lovely and in the main couldn't do enough, particularly the girl from Ilkley who was a credit to the hotel (sorry I didn't get your name). We are NOT complaining, particularly as the offer was so fantastic, but I'd love to come back knowing the management/owner had begun to love the place and give it some TLC.

Room Tip: I would check out the room on arrival before you accept it.

This looked as if it had been a lovely hotel in the 1960's but has fallen into disrepair. I can see others have taken photos similiar to our experience. The rooms were very shabby and in desperate need of repair. We were there for 2 nights. In our first room the bed was broken and in the end we slept on the floor as it was more comfortable! The shower room was tiny and the floor was moldy. In the second room we could not have a shower as there was no water coming out of it and took about 30mins to run a bath 4inches deep! However, the bedding was clean and the staff were very helpful. We got this on a deal and would have been very upset if we had paid £180 instead. Luckily we saw the Fault Towers style humour of it! Killin is LOVELY though and the local pub down the road was excellent!

Beautiful surroundings and a refurbished hotel provided a relaxing stay for us. The food was great, staff very helpful and room cosy and very clean. Definitely worth a stay on you way up north as only a drive from Glencoe and even more stunning scenery!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Loch!
