Renovate rooms and bathrooms like 510------interesting to note comments re 517 and experience would be better. Poorest rooms I have ever stayed in. Breakfast fine---could be warmer---even if first in----evening meal--mismatch-----potatoes and chips on same plate ?---- overcook veg. Hotel could be far better with improvements. Staff attentive and helpful.

Our room 517 was painted a fetching prison grey with dirty marks on walls, cobwebs aplenty and grubby carpets. We wondered why no shower curtain/screen and found that one wasn't needed as the shower was barely a trickle.

There was snow on the surrounding mountains and the hotel had a feeling of fairy tale land. The food at the Claymore was superb with a choice of three starters, three main courses and three 'finishers'. We were... More

Many thanks for your lovely comments regarding your recent stay. I'm disappointed to read that you did not get seats in the function room. We are restricted with seating and numbers in this rom and it does fill up very quickly! I hope that you can return for another stay in the future. Kind regards, Gary Watson. More

Just returned from a National Holidays stay at the Claymore. The hotel is in a beautiful location overlooking Loch Long and the public rooms are very traditional - wonderful as the bar etc were decorated for the festive season.

Reception Staff wasn't very helpful/friendly. Room didn't get cleaned the whole 3 nights I was there. Could do with a lick of paint and freshening up. On a better note the evening entertainment was fab and the food was delicious. Also the views where amazing!
