We stayed at the Cruachan Hotel from Friday 13th April to Monday 16th April. The hotel downstairs was clean and modern however, once you reached the first floor it was obviously dated. The rooms were clean but were small (room 133) the bed was a double and although I am not big my husband is and had difficulty fitting his 6t 1 frame in the bed. There was a plastic sheet over the mattress which caused us to get very hot and sticky, which we took off. The storage space had no drawers or doors so for those of us that do not want our under garments on display it was a bit annoying. Breakfast was good, however, when there was a full dining area they struggled to serve everyone and we did have to wait about 20 minutes for the full cooked breakfast.
As the heating was by storage heaters we struggled to get the temparature in the room right, it was either freezing cold or boling hot.!!!
The walls are paper thin so if you are planning any night time activities you may need to make sure there are no noises.
Overall a good hotel, for the price, it just needs a bit more organisation and perhaps sound proofing!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Cruachan is designed with a traditional Scottish Highland façade and whilst the hotel has been, continues to be, sympathetically upgraded and modernised internally to provide all modern comforts, it has not lost its original character. The hotel has an enviable location overlooking Loch Linnhe and beyond the loch to the Morvern Hills. Guests can sit on the terrace outside the hotel in the summer, watching the boats on the loch and enjoying a quiet drink. ... more less
