Booked in for a few days on our wedding anniversary. Right from the start we were impressed by the hotel. Check in was fast and efficient with Alan the concierge taking our bags to the room. He took the time and gave us a brief look at the Brasserie, lounge, Gin bar . He took the time to explain all of the quality equipment in the room from the Nespresso machine, Bluetooth radio and went and collected fresh milk for our tea and coffee. He was an ambassador for the hotel, well done. The room was fantastic, excellent linen, robes, slippers, quality toiletries. Very well decorated and a Phillips smart TV on the wall. Huge bed, Very very comfortable.
The view from the balcony was breathtaking with a fantastic view of the loch.
The food was fantastic, so refreshing to have breakfast cooked for you rather than the standard buffet breakfast. Incredible choices for breakfast. What a fantastic choice as well the Brioche french toast and streaky bacon was outstanding as was the cooked breakfast. Portions were more than adequate. Dinner was quite simply outstanding, Best Fillet steak and chips I've had in a very long time, wife just loved the duck.
What can I say about the staff other than every one of them was superb. From check in to check out it would be extremely difficult to pick a single fault with any one of them. They were always attentive, nothing was a bother and I was so impressed with their attention to detail including my wife's dietary requirements. Well done! The Spa is not quite finished (probably about September 2014) but I will certainly be returning very soon. The quality of the fixtures and fittings was impressive, the lounge is so peaceful with outstanding views of the loch.
This place is as good as any 5 star hotel I have stayed in but the welcome and feel of an exclusive and intimate boutique hotel. I wish them every success in the future. I will be visiting again.
