Stayed here with my partner on a 4 night Lochs and Glens break at the end of April. Our room was small but nice and clean. Bathroom had a bath and shower, heated towel rail and was again nice and clean. Only slight downside was the window was directly opposite the toilet and was not obscure, so had to pull the blind down when using the bathroom. Apart from that, can't fault it. Getting to the room was quite a chore - due to the multiple extensions to the hotel over the years it is like a rabbit warren of stairs and corridors. We are much younger than most on Lochs and Glens and didn't find it too much of a problem, but there were some elderly people who really struggled. Staff were really good - polite and attentive, worked really hard and did a really good job. Food was exactly the same as we had at the Loch Long Hotel (see my other review for that) - which is actually really good. Breakfast - freshly brewed tea/coffee, orange juice, cereals, toast and a choice of cooked. Evening meal was also good - choice of starters, mains and deserts, followed by coffee/tea if you wished in the lounge. The portion sizes weren't huge, but I am not a big eater anyway, and anyway after 3 courses even the heartiest of appetites should be filled. Again the food was really nice and certainly edible. Entertainment was quite good fun in the evenings, although again exactly the same as we had in November last year on Loch Long! There must be a circuit the entertainers are on. Bar prices were not too bad either, but as we are not big drinkers it doesn't cost us much anyway.
The location of this hotel is both its trump card and also its down side.
Down point first:-
It is at the end of a very long, narrow, windy, bumpy road - the only one in and out and takes about an hour on its own to navigate in a coach. Luckily, we only came in and went out once as we got ferried across the loch in the mornings/afternoons.
Once there, you can appreciate the location - simply stunning. So peaceful, but what a view of the mountains and loch. The scenery is simply amazing.
I can't really fault the hotel - the room we had was fine (can't vouch for others, no doubt some could do with a make over), the food was fine and the staff were great.
Would totally recommend.
