Stayed here for a night on my birthday. We paid extra to have one of the Loch view rooms. The rooms in that small block look like they have recently been refurbished, very modern interior lots of room, nice comfy bed and the underfloor heating was a bonus on a cold November day. Decent sized patio area looks out across...

We stayed over for business, stayed two nights in two different. The first room was a twin room with two single beds, one of which was rather creaky. We arrived around 8pm on a Sunday evening and the room was distinctly chilly. Despite turning the radiator up (it had been turned to lowest setting) there appeared to be no heat....

Visited the Stagecoach with my son whilst touring Scotland. The people were most welcoming and friendly. We had a good chat with the locals and the barman whilst having a drink,and the food was tasty and filling. Beer was well looked after and the room was perfectly okay. The position of the place right on the loch is superb also....

It just ok. The beds are ok if you have no back issues . The price is ok. Wifi is free but touchy. Must give notice for dinner, give notice and pay to use hottub, the shower is like bathing with a sprinkler, place smells like fried food and old wood, its rather odd old ugly decor. Now the pros:...

Dear Caymro, Thanks for your feedback. I am sorry to read that you thought our Inn was just OK! I guess one of your party have a bad back and this resulted in a poor night sleep, however the person who had no back problems had a good night sleep?...

We drove 20 miles to the Inn for dinner only to be disappointed. We sat down at 6:45 at a table set for dinner next to the bar. We were greeted by Lizzie who asked what we wanted to drink. When she returned with our drinks I asked for the menu only to be told that as we hadn't booked...

Sorry for your experience on this occasion. We did have a large function in the restaurant at 7pm on the evening you came for dinner so there was a wait of about 30 minutes. Apologies for not informing you of this on arrival. Please don't let this put you off returning to dine with us, but do book in advance...
