We stayed here for three nights during the Commonwealth Games as we did not want to stay in Glasgow for that length of time. Extra tickets after we booked meant we spent less time at the hotel than originally planned and only meant we had one dinner at the hotel. This was an excellent meal looking out to Loch Long and finished off nicely with coffee in the beautiful main lounge. Service throughout was superb with none of that stuffiness that sometimes comes with country hotels and a refreshingly personal approach to guest wellbeing.
Having a drink on the front terrace when the sun shines after a day out in the countryside is a welcome bonus.
Room was the comfortable option, looked out over the Loch, had all that was needed for that length of stay and the Tunnocks tea cakes and fresh coffee went down well on getting back late from the Games.
The staff and owners were always friendly and happy and helped make the stay enjoyable.
We had a different breakfast every day from the menu which was a nice variation. Perhaps a little more self serve for juice and a larger coffee jug might save having to ask for more (though refills were always provided quickly).
Having quickly looked at some recent negative comments, some of these contributors seem to be blaming the hotel for their own lack of research etc. Bear this in mind when reading these.
