Stayed with wife on a four night holiday late July 2013. The journey up from the North East was on a full (57) seat six week old Lochs and Glens coach. A steal at £275,000! Both drivers - Michael and Dougie were great with Dougie in particular a mine of information on Scottish history even if he was rather disparaging of England-shire!
Our fourth L & G holiday so we pretty much knew what to expect, which is superb value for money. Ardgartan is the first purpose built L & G hotel and forty years of experience are reflected in its design. Reception areas are light and airy with the lobby offering a panoramic view of Loch Long. Rooms are a reasonable size with plenty of storage and tea/coffee facilities. Bathrooms with walk in showers are excellent.
Food is OK - adequate but dull and portions are on the small side - reflecting the appetites of the predominantly elderly clientele. Bar prices are reasonable - £2.95 - £3.20 per pint.
We were blessed with superb weather - high 20's temperatures and not a drop or rain.
The outings were superb - a trip on the West Scottish steam line from Fort William to Mallaig one day, our own exclusive boat trip through the Kyles of Bute the next and finally a visit to Oban and the Cruachan power station.
So long as L & G keep coming up with interesting itineraries we'll keep coming back ...
