We stayed for 2 nights on a great deal which included dinner on first night and a bottle of wine in our room. Our room was lovely, in the modern wing, overlooking the loch. Nicely furnished with contemporary twists, we loved the window shutters.
Staff were welcoming on arrival and throughout. We had an issue with our shower not draining and mentioned this at reception, problem was sorted by the next time we used it.
Our meal was a bit mixed and ultimately disappointing. We had excellent starters of vegetarian haggis stack and local mussels, nice and hot and nicely cooked. BUT for mains we both ordered fish and chips and to describe as mediocre is being kind. The portions were large but the batter on the fish was soggy and pretty tasteless. I had to leave half of mine as it was poorly filleted and full of bones. The chips were not cooked fully enough and the salad had no dressing to give it any flavour.
Still a bit hungry I ordered a dessert of Raspberry Cranachan which was nice so it was 2 out of 3 for me. Would have preferred to have just had the starter and dessert with hindsight.
This meant that we would be going elsewhere to dine on our second night when we would have preferred to stay at the hotel and not have to drive anywhere.
Breakfast both days was fine and there was plenty to eat, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, porridge plus any variation of a cooked breakfast. No complaints here and the service was good.
I don't want this to sound like a negative review because it was an ALMOST perfect stay and we would love to return to this hotel. The staff were without exception a pleasure to deal with, a small tweak in the kitchen and it would be perfect.
