I stayed at the Tyndrum Inn twice in the space of a couple of days. Once in a double room and once in a single.
Now, with the more positive points. The restaurant and bar are quite nice, welcoming places with friendly and helpful staff, good food and alcohol. If I had to guess, most of the money goes into the restaurant and bar and not much flows into the hotel side of things.
The rooms are really baren, the bathrooms are completely retrofitted in a not very professional manner and there's just barely enough room to get around in them. I'm not tall but when I got in the shower I basically had to bend over to shower. Also, the drain was more in name than function. Unfortunately, they also don't seem to have a room to store bike of which there are many as it's the Highlands and a lot of people like to ride their bikes there.
The positive... well, it's one of the few Inns in a very small town on the West Highland Way. They probably charge a bit more just for that. One of the staff offered his lock to me so I could lock my bike outside in a 'kind of hidden' area. As I said, the staff is super friendly. Again, food was quite good.
Would I stay there again? Possibly as it's one of the only games in town other than a couple of camping areas and a Lodge that seems to be constantly full.
It's really close to both of the train stations in Tyndrum and next to the Green Welly Store (gas station and store) as well as the long-term parking area for the outdoors crowd. Location-wise, you can't do much better.
