“Lovely place apart from the bar/restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Stayed here for one night in September whilst walking the West Highland Room. The room was superb, clean, very spacious with powerful shower and lovely view. The chap on reception was very friendly. Only downside was the bar/restaurant where the staff were polite but not over friendly. The food was good but after a long day's walking there was just not enough of it and compared to other places stayed at on the Way it was overpriced. Breakfast though was very good.

This is a lovely appealing hotel in an atmospheric, isolated spot. We had a double room which was appealingly decorated and spotlessly clean, and the en-suite was good with a powerful shower and a bath. Breakfast was conspicuously good quality. Dinner was served in the bar, and staff seemed a bit overwhelmed - initially they charged us for four main courses rather than two starters and two mains, and brought them all out together. But they rectified the problem happily enough and I got a main course portion of scallops instead of a starter size, so that was recompense of a sort.

We liked it. Would recommend (and indeed already have).

We had a very welcome break here with hotel management trying to maintain our spirits as it poured down outside and we were on a rigid walking schedule. We had a ground floor room which was very quiet. Net curtains would be useful but it was great to have a room which overlooked the loch. Made to feel welcome and so was our little Border Collie. The food in adjoining restaurant was excellent but could have been a bit bigger for hungry walkers

Positive: The location was amazing: the room was overlooking Loch Lomond which was awesome. The room itself was spacious, light and clean. In general, the hotel offers a very comfortable getaway. They also have a lovely beer garden right next to the loch. Breakfast was good.

Negative: Most of the staff were very unprofessional, especially the evening/bar staff. They claim to have excellent pub food - they don't (£11 for their burger is way overpriced, as it's just a cheap bun with meat and chips - no cheese (or option for), no salad, no tomato, nothing.)

A much more challenging day on the West Highland Way so we were glad to arrive here. Our room was well-equipped and clean. We had a shower but some rooms have baths. Food in the restaurant was a little disappointing; I had deliberately chosen local dishes but the cullen skink was average and the salted cod accompaniments were good but there was very little cod.
The setting of the hotel is very good but unfortunately people coming back from the loch could look straight into our room - net curtains would help !!

Very disappointing - avoid room 12 in particular - it overlooks the kitchen, with the kitchen air ducts humming loudly outside the window and the kitchen stereo loud enough to make you think you we're at a disco

Beds were rock hard, room tiny, breakfast pretty bad, with dirty crockery

My wife and I stayed in this hotel on 29th August2013 while walking the West Highland Way. We were allocated a room on the ground floor adjacent to the rear door of the kitchen. We were concerned that there would be noise from the kitchen but this ceased after 9.00pm but there was a continuous humming noise from a cooling fan. I spoke to staff in the kitchen at around 10.00pm and we closed all the windows in our room to reduce the noise. It was assumed the noise would cease when the bar closed. However I checked again at 11.00pm and was advised the the fan would stay on all night and no one else had ever complained about it. We had a poor night sleep as the fan not only hummed all the time but also the level of noise went up and down presumably as the thermostat clicked on and off.
We were advised when paying our bill that the manager would contact us when we returned home to discuss the problem. This did not happen. However when we complained through booking.com we were advised that no-one else had never complained and that we had left our windows open all night...
Maybe we are just too sensitive but we definitely shut windows before trying cotton wool in ears to block noise!!
We stayed at 8 different location while walking the West Highland Way and this was the not only the most expensive but also the only one that gave us cause for complaint.
