Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Immediately on opening the door, you are greeted by a roaring fire and friendly staff and locals. The hotel is a little dated but is suitable for what we needed it for. The rooms could do with a refurb, but if you're there for the great outdoors, they are fine. The wifi wasn't brilliant, but once again, if you're there for nature, it's perfect. Breakfast was great.

Pros: - Beautiful location. Very rural and peaceful, I’m the middle of nowhere located next to a beautiful river surrounded by hillsides. Stunning - The food is out of this world! The fish and chips genuinely ARE the best fish and chips I’ve ever had. The Scottish breakfast was gorgeous. The haggis is the best I had the whole time I was in Scotland. Really, really good food! Cons: - Not the warmest of places. Not especially made to feel welcome. There is some banter that takes place but it’s quite awkward and unsure whether the staff / owners are joking or not. - Paper thin walls. The walls in the bedrooms are so thin you can hear ever single word that is spoken by your neighbours! Not great when you’re trying to sleep. - Tired. The hotel is beautiful, but hasn’t had any upgrades for some time. The hotel itself maintains its character and Scottish heritage; this is wonderful. However, the beds and other furniture in the rooms is tired and uncomfortable, shower drain blocking during use; those kind of things. Wouldn’t wanted to stay longer the night we did. I would recommend this hotel as a pass through for sure! For the food if nothing else!

Had a wonderful one night stay at this hotel in Aug 2023. Comfortable and very clean rooms. High ceilings. Hot showers (pull the shower cord, wait a minute and voila, hot showers). Tea kettle and related amenities, water bottles in room. Absolutely gorgeous setting/stunning backyard. Owner (I think he was) also doubled as our barman and was super friendly. This was our favorite hotel of the 5 we stayed in last week. Is it luxury? No, and the reasonable price reflected that. Yes, the breakfast options are tea/coffee and full scottish. But it was not a problem for us. The eating area is warm and comfortable (better than the pictures online). It is a very old building (500 years?) and had the related quirks and charm that my son, husband and I really enjoyed. I would absolutely stay here again.

This is Fawlty Towers without the charm of Basil Fawlty! Let’s get the plusses out of the way first - the hotel had vacancies and the room rate was under £100. Now the negatives: Decorations tired Thin walls Surly owner grunts at breakfast if you ask for anything other than a full Scottish! Refused to poach an egg and required 24 hours notice to provide a boiled one. This guy purports to have worked in the finest fish restaurants in the world - perhaps none of them served eggs! No cereal No juice Dirty cutlery There were 4 beers in the bar and on no night were they all available. They can’t be bothered to change the barrel, they just ask the customer to compromise accordingly. Staff bad mouthed local pubs but we found they served far superior food. Do yourselves a favour and avoid this one. If you want the laughs without the grief just watch Fawlty Towers on catch-up!

We chose this hotel for an overnight stop en-route based on the good reviews and it’s location. I do not understand the 5 star reviews or the overall rating of 4.5 stars. It certainly does not merit those. This is a very basic hotel in a remote location. The room we were given was small with a small shower only bathroom. The room was generally clean, but in need of redecoration. We visited in Sept 2022 and they were unable to provide evening meals because of unfortunate staffing issues. The cooked breakfast was sub-standard, possibly for the same reason. It is inexpensive, so maybe we were expecting too much. If we’re passing through that way again we will pay a little more and stay in the village of Killin, not very far away.

We stayed at the Luib Hotel for one night recently while spending a few days in the area and really wished we'd stayed longer. We both loved this historic old inn, set in beautiful Glen Dochart. Our hosts, Sue, John and Ray, were very friendly and welcoming - and nothing was too much trouble for them. We had the best night's sleep we've ever had away from home - in fact the bed was so comfortable I found it very hard to get up for breakfast. I'm glad I did as it was a particularly good breakfast (Lorne sausage, tatty scone etc). Our room (spotlessly clean) was at the front of the building and I'd been concerned about traffic noise, given its location on a main road, but it didn't bother me at all. There was very little passing traffic at night anyway. Very pleased to have found this little gem and we look forward to coming back.

This is a small hotel (ex drovers lodge apparently) set seemingly in the middle of nowhere. It is quiet,comfortable and a great place to relax. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are well decorated and comfortable. Food is tasty but limited vegetarian options.
