I stayed in the Cruachan about 2 yrs ago and loved it. We got a lovely room with loch view, 4 poster bed and a lovely breakfast for £75. The price is now £105 pn, which I do not think is worth it. The hotel has been revamped, looks lovely but they have taken away the Scottishness of it. All modern, with no Scottish features, which includes the staff, well we did hear one Scottish accent, but most of the staff were of Asian or East European. Our room was clean the bed was comfortable, TV too small, but had all channels. Wardrobe is open plan, no doors, but a bit on the small side Our view was of a back wall. The hotel was quiet, but the floors are not, very squeaky floorboards, and the people above us sounded like they were wearing hobnailed boots as they moved around, bit annoying. Staff were friendly, albeit they could not get our drinks order correct, that would be due to the language barrier, us being Scottish. They really need to get a more Scottish feel about the place, and maybe hire more locals. I know Americans, Italians etc are here to see Scotland and would prefer the Scottish theme. I would not stay here again.
- 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
