My partner and I stayed for four nights in November 2011 and we will definitely return. After a long day's drive from Lincolnshire, our welcome at reception could not be faulted. We had a lovely room, with a massive bed. The bathroom didn't have a bath, but it wasn't a problem for us, and yes the grouting was in need of little attention, but overall we were really pleased with our room (122), which although was by the road (again, this didn't bother us), had amazing views over the loch.
We used the hotel as a base to travel up to the Isle of Skye and Fortwilliam, Oban etc., but we had dinner every night at the hotel, and we just could not fault the food. We sampled everything from Mussels, chicken stuffed with haggis, venison, salmon, scallops - all excellent! Breakfast was also very good - it was a buffet breakfast on the last morning, but every other morning, it was cooked to order and brought to our table (not something I have seen so much of recently).
The lounge was comfy for our wee dram after dinner and the bar was cosy (and the fires were lit, even though it was unseasonably warm!). In fact, a Hollywood actress and the film crew stayed there on one of the nights we were there and as far as I'm concerened, if it's good enough for her, it's good enough for us!
I loved the fact that we felt relaxed and comfortable staying at the Ballachulish, it wasn't pretentious, the staff were lovely, and I liked the fact that it has a certain character and charm.
We also played a round of golf at the Dragon's Tooth Golf Course, next door to the hotel - again very friendly staff and a lovely wee clubhouse!
We can't wait to return to this amazing spot in the highlands!
