The hotel is in a great position on the banks of Loch Tay. It has a large bar restaurant area and a full menu with lots of options. There is a tv room downstairs for guests if you want a bit of extra room or are meeting friends. The hotel has just 5 rooms and a family run feel to it.
The room smelled slightly of cigarette smoke, the smell transferred to my bag and clothes meaning it came home with me. The key issue was the electrics; the kettle in the room kept tripping the fuse for the whole floor. It took me 6 resets at the fuse box to boil a kettle. I booked a b&b basis but breakfast started after I needed to check out. The owner told me he wasn't getting up early to accommodate me but I could have a packed lunch if I wanted. Like others have said, staff were a little surly but well intentioned. The shower ran out of hot water the night I arrived. The morning I left the water was warm, not hot. No one was around to ask about the electrics or water issue on the morning I checked out. One night here was £75 for a small double on a b&b basis. For me this wasn't value for money.
We found it rather expensive for the quality of room, furnishings and facilities on offer.
Wi fi wasn't working.
Food was good
The location was perfect for the hill-walking we planned to do, which was our only reason to use this hotel. The woman behind the bar who greeted us and checked us in when we arrived was welcoming and helpful. Pub-grub dinner and real ale was OK. Breakfast was fine. Car parking was useful.
The male owner who dealt with breakfast seemed quite cheerless and grumpy. The room (and whole hotel) is a bit like stepping back into the 80's - drab, run-down and needing some TLC. The bathroom was particularly shabby (broken taps / black mould marks on bath surround tiles / floor tiles loose). One significant complaint is that, although there was a bath (which I was looking forward to enjoying in the morning), the hot water very quickly ran cold, meaning I could not have a bath and instead had to settle for a cold shower. When I told the owner, he expressed surprise and explained that maybe another guest had a bath that morning and used up all the hot water - no word of apology though. Not good value for money, compared to some very recent experience elsewhere.
Ideal location for “Munro-bagging”. Very friendly team, lovely log burning stove (perfect recuperation in front of it with a pint). All set up for Halloween - wish I could have stayed longer!
