“Beware the voucher”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

Booked this hotel for trip down memory lane with voucher which assured us we were getting a special half price deal. However when we arrived the room turned out to be in a small annex called the cottage which meant the room was as small as was possible to get basic double bed to fit with heavily combed ceiling and a dirty broken window. Access was up a narrow stair and furnishings were old and poor. On the plus side we did find the second pillow hidden in the wardrobe.
The dining room looked dull and so we ate in the bar which was better with reasonable pub food Staff were friendly but overall the hotel very tired . Would not recommend,and do not expect to get a room in the advertised hotel rooms if you go on a special deal. Very very disappointed and delighted to be home.

Stayed October 2012

got this deal online £79 plus we paid an extra £10 for a loch view please ask for first floor, we had a lovely room it wasnt huge but big enough for a weekend, sheets and room was very clean, we got shown up right away after arriving about 3.30pm, dinner was 7.30 or 8pm as there was a wedding on , we prefer t eat later so 8pm was fine. I really enjoyed my meal pate then salmon and desert, my husband paid £8 more for steak and he isnt a fussy person but the steak was nearly raw !! when he asked for medium, what let this hotel down was the staff in the dining room who did not have a clue they put a steak down to my husband then realised it was for someone else and whisked it away just as he was going to put his fork in it. so dont pay the extra for the steak, wine was superb we had a red cant remember which one but was about £18 we then went out to the George a livier pub and got chatting to a couple. great thing about this deal was we got vouchers for the castle and that would have cost us £20 !! so in the morning we got up for breakfast large selection of fruit juices cereal fruit and also the buffett hot meal, when something ran out they were quick to replace it and i only needed to wait 2 minutes on a fried egg, also there was sausages which i did not like, bacon was good black pudding yummy beans tomatoes and fresh toast brought to your table with jam and marmalade and a pot of tea each. on a whole the breakfast was good value considering what we paid, and also the late check out at 1pm, if you dont want breakfast stay in bed or get it to your room haha, i went back thinking i could go back to sleep but couldnt but it was nice and relaxing not having to rush to go away, husband got newspapers and sat downstairs and had a nice read then off to the castle, got home about 5pm, a great overnight, i might add the receptionist was brilliant she was foreign but i dont know from which country, but the staff they have in the dining room some spanish i think were not on the ball, which did waste it a bit, we had to ask for our wine just before the main course came

Room Tip: i dont think this has a lift so i would ask for a loch view first floor

We booked our wedding lunch here. From the time of enquiry until the actual day we experienced professional and friendly service. We had contacted other venues and their very slow and disinterested attitude made the decision easy. Robbie, Margaret and all the other staff made our day extra special. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced as the portions were very generous. We will always pop in when we visit Inverary, Great staff and food!

We stayed here for an overnight on a Glasgow's Great Deal. It was well worth the money for the deal as the food alone was excellent. The staff are all lovely, polite and friendly but the the hotel itself is in need of an overhaul. Our room had everything we needed but was small and dated. Our dinner was faultless and even though a surcharge was added for the mussels and the steak, it was worth it. The hotel is ideal for an overnight.

Reviewed 15 September 2013

stayed two nights, hotel was warm and friendly, food very good, when the restaurant menu on the second night wasn't to our taste we were offered alternative food from the bar menu which was the same high standard as the restaurant. Staff were very attentive to our needs.

The only down side was our room which was not in the main hotel but the annexe attached. We were asked at check in if we had booked through Easy breaks and when we said yes we were given the annexe. The room itself was fine and clean but was attached to the kitchen which was a bit noisy as well as the noise from the a/c unit. The bathroom looked into the town car park and the window had plain glass not frosted, although there was a blind. we did not like having to go outside to get to our room.

We would stay here again but not in the annexe.

Room Tip: annexe not recommended

I visited in September for a Wedding Lunch and thought the whole hotel exuded friendliness and comfort - the staff were very attentive and the meal itself beautifully presented, Their roast beef was positively melt in the mouth! Even if you go to visit Inveraray and merely stand at the front door looking at the view it will be worth it,
