“Good Value”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

This hotel is in a fantastic location , the food was excellent , as was the presentation .
The bar has a 1st class range of malt whisky .....i loved the Deanston !

On the down side the upholstery / seating / curtains in the bar / restaurant , are dated and sagging, and in need of
refurbishing.
The staff did a fantastic job.

Room Tip: Ask to see the rooms 1st for choice.

Just had a week away with work at the Falls of Lora the food in the the hotel was fantastic only off putting was the old lady watching you eat she should put a manager in charge and put her feet up.

Just back from 2 nights in the falls of lora. Walking in is like entering a museum, there is nothing modern about his hotel but that's what makes it special. Lots of quirky ornaments and the place was spotless. We stayed in room 43, a special room with huge bed and massive bath.

Our objective was to relax and that we did. We enjoyed breakfast although the 'big breakfast' wasn't all that big but did the trick. All in all a nice wee break, staff lovely, hotel very clean and food was delicious. Only thing I can say is that it is on the pricey side for what it is (310 quid for 2 nights) but I would recommend a visit to this hotel.

I stopped here for a night with my wife whilst heading to the Hebrides. From the outside the hotel looks a bit weather-beaten, but inside it was very pleasant and warm (a big plus considering it was pouring down when we arrived). All the staff (reception, bar, breakfast) were extremely friendly and professional and the food was good, with a decent selection of bottled local ales.

We had a room in the old part of the hotel on the second floor. I'd specifically asked for a room with a view, and we were overlooking the loch. The room was small but well appointed. The only downside was that the shower was fairly pathetic, just a trickle really. Apart from that, I'd stay again if I needed somewhere to overnight.

Hi I have been there not so far ago. My suggestions below:
Positives
+Friendly personnel
+Very clean
+Heated double bed
Negatives:
-No WI-FI ( there was no mobile internet too )
-Priced for a person not for a room (???)
-Expensive for the low standard (hardly used furniture, lack of pressure in the shower )
-Expensive breakfast costs £12.50 per person (nothing special to eat for the price)

I've been holidaying in this area of the west coast of Scotland for 25 years. During that time I have eaten at the Falls on a number of occasions and there is no doubt the food has improved measurably over the last few years. It's not flamboyant or wildly imaginative but is well presented, nicely prepared and served in a timely fashion by quality staff.
It's very reasonably priced and doesn't require a reservation.
