“Lochs and glens holidays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

We recently went to Scotland with Lochs and Glens and stayed at their new hotel. It was an absolutely fabulous holiday. The hotel, the staff, the meals and the excursions were lovely. The scenery in Scotland is amazing. We have stayed at all seven lochs and glens hotels and they are all wonderful.

First time with L & G, although we holiday often by coach. Hotel very spacious, immaculately kept and in a stunning setting. We found all staff friendly, helpful and pleasant and, once we had got used to the system for dealing with coach party meals, found the food excellent and with plenty of choice.

If we had any minor criticism, it would be that a more flexible/varied starter menu for breakfast would be nice - having said that, we heard others asking for fruit juice as well as cereal and they were never refused. We just like fruit on our cereal, not as an alternative, but didn't want to appear greedy!

The evening menu was interesting and had plenty of choice, although slightly disappointing that over an 8 day holiday, we had one set of mains repeated! Nevertheless, we both enjoyed everything we had and the portions were certainly very satisfactory.

Third L&G holiday and first time at Ardgartan. What can I say? Once again, fantastic accommodation, staff, food, drivers, trips out, etc. How can such a large hotel make you feel that you are a special guest and also one of the family. An annual holiday with L&G is a must for me! Just can't recommend it highly enough.

Typical Lochs and Glens, could find no fault what-so-ever. this company have definitely got it right. Hotel excellent, food excellent, staff excellent. only complaint, we were mid-ships on the coach 27-28, the return journey was very cold, the driver was told, one passenger nearby asked him at Wetherby if he was supplying hot water bottles, he made a joke, and the rest of the journey until our arrival in March Cambs remained very cold and quite uncomfortable. apart from this one problem we had a very nice holiday.

Went here on a Lochs & Glens trip. Really nice hotel. Lovely position by a loch. Great food with a good choice. Clean and spacious, friendly staff. All in all we could not fault the holiday or the hotel.

Just had 5 days at this Lochs and Glens hotel which is situated on a small peninsular on Loch Long facing down the Loch. The hotel has been designed to take full advantage of the breath taking views with floor to ceiling panoramic windows in the lounge/reception area and the dining room.

We had a brilliant room on the forth floor which also enjoyed the stunning Loch views, the room was very large and comfortable with both a double and a single bed, a small table and two comfy chairs, plenty of hanging space and drawers plus the usual dressing table with a kettle and all the usual ingredients for tea and coffee and a small flat screen TV. Unfortunately, because of the size of the room, if you are sat up in bed watching the TV it is very small. The bathroom is also large and well set out with an excellent walk in shower but why oh why do we have a washbasin with a central pillar tap which restricts access to the bowl, looks nice but not practical. The room was very clean and kept so throughout the stay.

The food and the service in the dining room is exceptional. With 4 full coaches in each coach has an allocated time slot for meals, sounds a bit regimented but it works very well. The staff are lined up to greet you for each meal and you keep the same table throughout the stay. The meals are served very efficiently in a way which is never hurried but you are never left waiting for the next course and all done with lots of smiles and the exchange of pleasantries. Fantastic. The full Scottish breakfast is a real delight well cooked and very tasty and sets you up for a good days sightseeing. The evening meal has plenty of choices is different every night and again is well cooked and tasty.

We had 3 excellent excursions with a steam theme two on steam ships and the other on a steam train all very interesting and enjoyable thanks to some good weather and two very good drivers who kept us informed at all times with interesting facts about areas we were travelling through and made you feel safe in their capable hands driving the huge 57 seater coach along the winding and narrow hillside roads with admirable skill and dexterity.

There is entertainment on in the evenings which we enjoyed on the first night but on the other nights we preferred to sit in the reception/lounge area which is equipped with very comfortable twin seat brown leather chesterfield sofas and drink in the beautiful Loch views while comparing notes on the days excursions with fellow travellers.

Brilliant hotel brilliant holiday can't wait to go back again next year.

Just back from our holiday with Lochs and Glens and once again had a fantastic time. We have been on several of their coaching holidays but this was our first time to the Ardgartan Hotel. Every thing was immaculate, exceptional staff, very comfortable rooms and excellent food. Our driver
Kevin was a really nice guy and we all had such a laugh with him and he was very informative. Thank you Lochs and Glens will be booking with you again very soon.
