“West Highland Way”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

This was easily the worst hotel we stayed at while walking the West Highland Way. Room was pretty basic and the service was pretty poor. Food was unimpressive. Nothing to recommend it other than its location.

After a hard day,s walk with friend met our wives for overnight stay . Beer garden great for some drinks . Our room no. 5 was excellent . Large room , well furnished with large flat screen TV . Bathroom great also and looks recently refurbished . No view from room 5 but not a problem as the view from terrace beer garden makes up for it . Had a meal in bar and my only complaint is the portion I received was very poor though rest of our party had enough . Some entertainment in the bar at night /- singer, so good end to the day . Breakfast was usual fare cereal / juice / fruit / fry up and perfectly good . All in all an enjoyable stay and will return .
£96 per room for my wife and I thru booking.com . Good experience .

Room Tip: Room 5 good size and nicely finished , large TV , nice bathroom . However no view of loch if this i...

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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

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

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

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 !!
