Over night stay
On the way to the hotel my wife had read out some reviews and we started to panic, on arrival the hotel looked very big and was set in a beautiful location, getting closer we noticed some fabrication issues with the building. The hotel in general is old but is full of character and added to the experience of staying in old fashioned Scottish retreat. Room was again old fashioned but acceptable, bathroom needs a make over. The view fof Loch Rannoch from the room was amazing. Dinner was good - we had the burgers and onion rings and could not complain. Breakfast was good with great service. Got up to use the gym and swimming pool but was told it would not be open till 9am which was disappointing as most hotels gyms are open earlier. Overall good value for money, set in a beautiful location with friendly staff
