We used this hotel after completing a 26 mile hike that day. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff who were very friendly. nothing seemed to be a problem, we loved the buffet dinner that evening which was first class and gave us a a huge choice of foods. we ate in groups which was different but again very enjoyable as it was nice to meet new people who again were all very friendly. We made use of the swimming pool and Jacuzzi and had an excellent breakfast next morning. It was a little more expensive than normal for us but it was really worth it for the level of service we enjoyed.

This hotel is run mainly for HF Holidaymakers package walking groups, and as such has something of an old-fashioned institutional feel about it. The hotel itself is in a lovely lochside setting with stunning views of the surrounding hills and is well situated to explore the surrounding area. On site facilities include a small swimming pool, and more usefully a spacious drying room after wet days on the hills.

Rooms with more character are in the older part of the building, with modern well-appointed rooms in the new extension.

The staff at the hotel are pleasant, friendly and welcoming, though the level of service is not that of a mainstream hotel. This is also true of meals which are pretty regimented - more hostel than 4* hotel. That said it is clearly much loved by HF Members.

Whilst the setting, hotel building and rooms are great, the service level and restricted dining options mean overall a stay here is a bit pricey for what is on offer.

This costs a third more than a traditional hotel deal for dinner-bed-breakfast deal and twice the price of an upmarket but homely DBB. You do get a very clean indoor swimming pool and loads of grounds, but chances are it will be raining in the Scottish highlands so the drying room is more to the point. So about £40 pounds a day goes on the guided walking. Cheaper than going out and hiring your own guide if you need one (and if you want to do something beyond your normal ability - a difficult scrambly Munro for example- you may find this is a perfect way. Lots of people do, and feel safe). And you have to accept the institutional atmosphere like no service or bar till 6pm even if raining cats and dogs all day. And no wi-fi until you've presented yourself at the office (after 6pm)and asked for a password. That's seriously old-fashioned. Now if you're an independent sort of person or with some walking experience then this is not the place for you. If you want to be led, why not try a mountain festival in Scotland? (just do a search online for 'walking festival' and location and/or month). A lot cheaper, more friendly and more flexible as you choose your own accommodation and evening eating and other activity. And on the subject of food, during my stay the breakfast was quite superb but the evening meal partly or wholly inedible.

Room Tip: New wing is reckoned to be better

We enjoyed a short break- 4 nights - with HF Holidays. We had the 'Bishop's room' on the top floor of the old part of the house, which had probably the best view in the place. Room was huge, if a bit old fashioned, and for future stays we will book a room in the new wing.
As for all HF houses the meals were superb - without exception. Staff were brilliant and could not have been more helpful.
As a few other reviewers have mentioned this Hotel is owned by HF and the majority of guests are partaking of one of the walking packages. If you are booking independently please bear that in mind. The place is great, but is very much geared to HF guests and their activities.

Room Tip: Certain rooms are classed as "premium" and attract a surcharge. The 'Bishop's Room' where we stayed is one such - the view over the lawns to the loch is amazing.

We really enjoyed our stay here at Alltshellach. We were in one of the rooms in the modern extension - the rooms were very modern, decently sized and the bathroom beautiful. The pool and jacuzzi were a great bonus also. The staff were very friendly and made sure we were happy with everything. Breakfast was generous and offered plenty of choice. Note that this hotel is mainly used for package walking holidays. If you are booking online for just accomodation, you'll be in the minority. But this didn't bother us, because we were of only two couples in the hotel that week! (they'd cancelled the package due to low numbers). At only 80GBP per night for our stay, this was excellent value, being the best hotel we stayed at during out week long tour of Scotland.
