The journey to this hotel is filled stunning views. We arrived promptly and were offered a room at the back or to upgrade to a room with a view of the loch for £10 extra per night, which we took. It was a lovely view out of most of the window. We were pleased to find a place which took dogs.
As we had a dog with us we had to eat outside on one of the three tables on a corner of grass if we wanted a meal so we spoke to the bar staff and ordered.... more than 45 minutes later we had to go in search of our food!! The staff said he had no idea we were outside despite us having said that clearly and having the dog!! The menu was deceptive as it had two price brackets - the cheaper one - which was expensive enough t be the real cost - was actually only a supplement if you had already paid for a meal!!! The larger amount was the real price! I was sad not to have local people staffing the place, but I guess that is unfair in this day and age. Our room was spacious and clean but the corridors were creaky and could have done with a bit of a spruce up and nice pictures etc. Could be easy to make this a really nice place. Some reviewers have commented about negative staff - we found the staff very friendly but a bit 'exchange-studenty' to be very efficient. Breakfast was good with a nice choice including haggis and black pudding if we wanted it!
You get wifi code free by asking at reception.
It's a great central base to discover some beautiful local sites around Loch Lomand and Inveraray Castle (well worth a visit). All in all a nice stay but could have been a little better.
