Large hotel with a rabbit warren of rooms. Breakfast was fine and everything worked. The rooms are showing their age but are clean and what you expect at this price point. Received an email to say restaurant closed just before we arrived so are in a pub in the village ( oldest licensed one in Scotland ).

It's in a lovely location in Drymen. Public facilities are good. Bedrooms are very tired. Carpets need cleaned. Pillows need upgraded, all sag in the middle. Breakfast was ok, very poor choice. Request for a top floor room was not passed on so ended up on the ground floor. To be honest we were disappointed. Not stayed for a long time & sadly will not be returning.
