This was our 4th overnight stay at this lovely hotel on our way to the Isle of Mull. Again we had a warm welcome from our hosts Nelly and James. Our room was clean and comfortable as ever. My husband always has steak for his evening meal and says " you cannot get a better steak anywhere". Thank you James and Nelly - see you next year.

My husband and I are just back from a lovely stay with James and Nelly at the Luib Inn - we turned up with our 3 month old baby and 2 lively collie dogs and we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome, thank you. Lovely big room, delicious home cooked dinner and big breakfast and fantastic location. We'll be back for the snow this winter!!!

After a mix up with a larger hotel we were offered the opportunity to stay in the Luib. We could not of been more delighted to have been offered this chance. The hotel is ran by a couple who are both lovely and could not do anymore to make you feel welcome. James runs a well stocked bar and Nelly provides the home made cooking. The rooms are spacious and clean.
If you are looking for a quirky hotel I would defo recommend the Luib and it's 134 malt whiskeys to choose from.

We had a wonderful time at the hotel. It was our first stop of our 10 day visit to Scotland. James and Nelly are very friendly. They are the kind of people who make you feel at home right away. The room was very clean and comfortable. Perhaps a chair could have been useful :-)
The food was nice home cooking. The breakfast more than enough.
Christmas last a whole year at Luib (phone, lights...)
When we left we promised to go back, and so we did at the end of our trip to Scotland.
We had a very good time with the other guests as well. When we left for home we even got a hug from the owners ;-)
We will be back.

Room Tip: If you want a twin, just ask for it.

We stayed here overnight as we wanted to visit Killin the next day. The hosts remembered us and we were spoilt as if we were long lost members of the family. We had a great dinner, special of the night was roast highland beef, there was a big table with other guests and some locals, all in all a fabulous evening and one we will remember for a long time. We are already planning a return visit.
Thank you James and Nelly your hospitality is really something special

This hotel has a lovely location, but unfortunately that is all it has to recommend it.

There is nothing desperately wrong with it, but my subjective opinion is that it is a generally unwelcoming place.

I don't require friendly staff at a hotel, but it helps, and the staff were offhand, as though they had just been having an argument, both on arrival and departure.

I also don't require frills in a room, but they can be nice, but there are none here.

These factors might have made for a two-star review but the hotel is also simply overpriced for what it is. I stayed in a very similar hotel a couple of nights later but paid less than 60% of the price.

The second hotel was - subjectively - more welcoming, also.

I am afraid I, personally, would not countenance staying at the Luib Hotel again.

Quaint old hotel, (over 200 year old) believe it was built as a Drover's Inn on the main north / south drove road, and has always been a hotel / Inn. The hotel is run & staffed by a husband & wife couple who make you very welcome, and are very attentive and friendly. It is an ideal base for hill walking in this area, also for fishing, there is access to the river just behind the hotel.

Room Tip: rooms facing the river are quieter as they are away from the road.
