I have visited the Oaktree Inn a few times over the years and it keeps on delivering on many levels. The staff are just so friendly and welcoming, especially Agnes on reception.
The food is superb and and for a hotel of this size the menu is extensive. One of the things that I like is that you can choose to eat in the bar (with the open fire) or in the restaurant. Either way it is a very relaxing atmosphere. I like not having to dress up - everyone is smart/casual.
I've read some of the not so positive comments about the rooms / bunk house but I have to disagree. The rooms are lovely and so well equipped - ok the walls could perhaps do with a bit more sound proofing but I've never had any bad experiences. The cottages near the Loch are the best and the views in the morning (not the rainy ones) are stunning.
If I want a formal 5* luxury experience and a price to match then I'll go to the other side of the Loch but for my wife and I we think that the Oaktree is a fantastic getaway
For those that moan about the location - surely you know where you are going ?? The moaner's in life will always find something to whinge about !!
Well done the Oaktree - you're doing it well.
