Went to Loch Long with 2 of our friends on a Mountains and Mistletoe break, through Lochs and Glens. This was our first coach trip and we were a little anxious as we are in our 40's and the youngest on the tour by some margin! Needn't have worried though - had a wail of a time! Picked up on time. Coach was fine. Driver was a really good laugh and informative throughout. Hotel staff were wonderful - very efficient and friendly and polite. We arrived late due to lorry fire on the M6 costing us nearly 2 hours, but were welcomed warmly, checked in quickly and cases brought up to our room. Quickly unpacked and down to restaurant for evening meal. Woke up next morning to snow covered mountains - so picturesque! Room was small, but clean. Bathroom was clean and warm with nice luxury towels. Shower was lovely and powerful and hot. Only criticism was there were no little bottles of complimentary shower gel or shampoo that hotels normally provide (we forgot to bring shower gel, which is only why I mention it) - it might have been an oversight or just cost cutting (it is incredible value so cant grumble either way). Bedding was clean and bed was comfortable, We had a room facing the road, which although nice for views across the loch and mountains, does let in a bit of traffic noise. Walls were wafer thin so you could hear everything from adjoining rooms (like our friends snooring, and the person snooring on the other side!). Meals are at set times as they have to cater for several groups, and we were all on schedules. Food was excellent. Good choice for breakfast - cereals, toast, juice, tea/coffee, full cooked breakfast or choice of kippers, different egg dishes on toast etc. Evening meals were nice too, with a choice of starters, main and desert, followed by tea/coffee in the reception area. I was always full after the meals! Our break included a Christmas dinner and Hogmany dinner and they were good fun with crackers etc. ALL staff were pleasant and friendly and very efficient and dressed up for the part each day. Entertainment was quite good fun - nothing too serious and a good laugh. With the music playing, lots got on the dance floor - even 80 year olds !(boogied better than I could!). All in all, couldn't fault the hotel and its staff - the food was good and plentiful anf they made us very welcome. Would definitely come back and can recommend.
