Great 3 night stay as the middle part of our tour of the Clyde. Hotel was easy to find with plenty of parking in front .Owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. An outside cigar immediately brought forth cushions for the garden furniture. Passing through the entrance hall, the restaurant was on the left and on the right a couple of lounges and the bar. One of the lounges was a conservatory with views looking out over the loch. It was great fun watching motorists speeding towards Kennacraig to make a ferry deadline.
The bedrooms were comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities, but a little cramped for two people - bit of juggle to open the door carrying very much. Shower room was in comparison reletively spacious with plenty of toiletries. Food was excellent with a varied menu - particularly enjoyable was the smoked salmon on the breakfast menu. Bar was well stocked with a great range of whiskies - but watch the prices - I was slightly shocked at the cost of three measures of a wooded expression of the Springbank Longrow !
Would definitely stay again.
