Unfortunately this is the only place you can stay in Glencoe / Kings Head along the West Highland Way and it really isn't very good! Such a shame and very disappointing. Aside from the staff, who I must admit were friendly and nice enough, the hotel is really dire. It's in need of a TOTAL revamp. Everything was rather dirty: sheets and towels were brownish, windows and mirrors stained and the carpets were filthy. The walls in our room had what I presume was tea or coffee all over them. After a long walk you really want to relax in a clean, comfortable room with nice amenities but this hotel does not offer that! We did have a kettle in our room which was good, but the only place to plug it in was on the floor under the dresser?! Just madness and bad planning! The bar serving food was quite dirty and food was average. The computer and wifi didn't work which was a pain. Breakfast was quite stingy. Considering we paid £90 for a pokey double room with shared bathroom I do feel we were totally ripped off. Another thing to point out is that the shared bathroom was not cleaned in the morning before everyone woke. Considering everyone showers in the evening after their walk and then again in the morning, this should be looked into... But the hotel obviously gets away with it because as mentioned, there is no other option! I know we were in the Highlands and didn't expect a 5* luxury resort but I do feel the hotel could do a few extra little things and make a few changes to make people want to return: they should start with renovating the whole place - you can keep the charm but modernise certain elements! The view was gorgeous but aside from that, nothing was great and I don't recommend. Sorry to be writing this but something has to be done!
