We very much enjoyed the facilities and the view of the loch from the Ben Lomond Lodge, but we found difficulties booking breakfast in the hotel dining room. The staff at the dining room had a rather stand offish manner and were not friendly. We wondered whether this was because we were lodge clients rather than hotel clients although my booking went through the main system. The Lodge staff and the concierge could not have been politer, they were a credit to the resort.. Parking was good on site.
