It was hard to rate this one as I thought many things were great. But keeping in mind the rate is on the high end I did expect excellence but came away with "okay that was nice but not great". The area of Glenfinnan is so beautiful and the house hotel itself is both historical and mostly well taken care of. The wood burning fireplace in the lobby is a nice touch, the run down dining room not so much. I found it very odd we weren't given a key to our room but "if asked for could be provided-we don't have a problem". Well yes, nobody has a problem until there is a problem and then it's too late. The furniture in our room was beautiful and the view was outstanding. The overall decorations seemed somewhat thrown together or oddly placed and the bed linens while clean were fit for a cheaper chain and definitely a step down from the B&B from the night before. Dinner was excellent, and with meal, dessert and drinks high(about 75 pds) but I felt reasonable for the quality. Breakfast, included, was adequate. My shower was moldy with pink and black mold, I had to ask it to be cleaned which they did but I shouldn't have mold to begin with. All in all it was a nice stay/experience but one I wouldn't repeat.
