“Perfectly hidden from the main road”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

We arrived here for a 2 day break and couldn't believe our luck when we pulled up.The inn has 6 lochside rooms which we stayed in. It was clean and welcoming.after booking a table for an evening meal then unloading the car, we headed to the bar to try the real ale.we took our drinks into the garden at the lochside.it was lovely to relax. We got ourselves ready for our meal at 7pm.The menu seemed large and there was a specials board but our food was good on arrival.After 3 courses and a bottle of wine we went back to our room with another bottle. The only issue I would have with the room is that the t.v didn't work properly. Even after the staff tried to fix it. It was a bit disappointing as we were paying the same as the other rooms and there t.v's worked fully.This inn is a hidden gem which everyone should at least have a look at.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback. I am glad that you were feeling lucky when you arrived, that you wound your rooms clean and welcoming, found our lochside garden relaxing. I am sorry that you experienced problems with your TV. we have just had the full TV system renewed after the other system failed and now every bedroom is receiving 16 channels. I hope that this will not prevent you from returning in the future and thank you for describing us as a hidden gem.

thanks again,

Jamie

Stayed here to break our journey up north. Room was not clean 2 dirty cotton buds behind bed bathroom was grotty with peeling paper and manky shower curtain. Had an overpriced meal qhile watching owner putting gold balls into loch 7 in total absolute arrogance. Only thing goi g for it was the view and the friendly bar staff. Breakfast waa ok although waitress was overstretched and puffing and panting to keep up .

We've stayed for three days and travelled a bit in the area. The location is really great, the lake and outside tables are great and nearly all staff were really helpful. Great trips in the area, both for hiking and car trips.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback. I am glad to read that you enjoyed the location of the Inn, the views of the Loch and the tables outside. Although I am pleased that you found most of the staff to be helpful, the way that you have worded that, I can't help but wonder if you were unhappy with one of our team? If this is the case please can you email me at enq@cairndowinn.com so that I can look into this for you.

Thanks again,

Jamie

We recently spent one night at the Stagecoach Inn on our way from Fort William to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games. The Inn is in an absolutely stunning location on a quiet end of Loch Fyfe with peaceful views. We stayed in a Lochside room and it was well worth it to wake up to the gorgeous views. The rooms are very modern, clean and comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent and the staff were extremely friendly. Would definitely go back next time we are in Scotland.

We have just spent a really enjoyable 4 days at the Stagecoach Inn. The location was fantastic with stunning views across the Loch and really fantastic food. The room we had was really suited to the 3 of us and the staff went out of the way to make our stay special. A huge thanks to you all and hope to see you again soon.

We enjoyed our trip to this hotel. It was very clean and the food was excellent. The room was large
and we particularly enjoyed the spa bath. There are good walks around the hotel, but entrance to the nearby gardens was a bit expensive in our view. The hotel staff are local, and very pleasant and helpful. The only thing which marred our stay was the jazz band on the Saturday evening. We were offered another room, but declined, as the band played far too loud and the sound was heard some distance away. Moving rooms would have made no difference. We also felt that Scottish music would have been more appropriate during the tourist season.

Dear Veronica,

Thank you for your feedback. Thank you for your positive comments on the cleanliness, excellent food, size of the room, the spa-bath, our helpful friendly staff. I am sorry that the free live music that we had playing in our Bar was not to your taste, I’m sure you can understand that it is difficult trying to please everyone’s taste in music, we have a variety of live bands playing throughout the summer period and some of these are traditional Scottish bands, I can understand your point of view however we are unable to book these for every performance as it is a public bar too and we have to take into consideration what the locals will enjoy too.

Thanks again,

Jamie

We stayed here on our way to Inverary Games last week. It's a very quiet location just off the main road, with a beautiful view of Loch Fyne. Good size twin room with large beds and large bathroom. Very clean and comfortable.
