The hotel is in a beautiful and remote location, and is charming. The staff were friendly and attentive. If you are looking for chic boutique then this isn't it, but if you are after periodic charm and tranquility then this is the place for you. Had a relaxing time, and since I've taken up running, it was a fantastic early...

Dear Jon. H Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you had a relaxing time. A wee bit disappointing to hear that breakfast did not meet a unique experience every day so I have issued some re training for our breakfast team here to ensure quality and continuity...

This is our second visit to the hotel and we were pleasantly surprised with the changes since our first visit. The location is stunning and we stayed in a coach house apartment as we took our three dogs with us, the apartment was brilliant, comfortable and warm with everything you need for a few days stay. We ate in the...

Husband & I were accommodated in Lunga, which turned out to be a one bedroom small apartment/lodge. we had bought a 3 night b & b deal at an agricultural show last year and decided to use this past weekend. The lodge provided had all the space we needed and was clean. The only fault is that the Hotel &...

When you look on the Atlas map oost of us have in the car, it is the hotel marked, not the village. Miles from anywhere, the stunning setting next to Loch Awe, overlooking the mountains is breathtaking. Everyone arriving couldnt help taking photos before entering reception. The staff, although only small in compliment, were, in my view, second to now....

My wife and myself have just returned from a three night stay.

Stayed in one of the lodges for three nights with two large dogs. The lodge was very comfortable, warm, adequately furnished and kitted out. Bedlinen and towels were excellent in quality. The dogs were made very welcome. Loch views and walks were great. The only downside to be honest was the food and restaurant service. We ate in the bar...

Stayed here twice and third stay booked. Comfortable accommodation with loch views. Quality breakfast. Friendly staff. Located close enough to use as base for touring some of Scotland's beautiful countryside, Glen Coe, Fort William, Ben Nevis. Evening meals were reasonably priced as well.

This lodge badly in need of refurbishment, very dated particularly shower and bathroom- On arrival cold and damp. Bedding and towels clean, both toilets smelled disgusting, even after maintenance team looked at it. On the plus side views of the Loch were amazing. Will definately not be returning.

We booked our stay at the hotel almost like timeshare where we paid up front and had a period of time to take our break in.

I was treated to three days away for my birthday in between Christmas and New Year. We were warmly greeted after a 5 hour drive and everything was explained to us including where the water comes from (the stream running down the hillside) and what to do for drinking water which was in plentiful supply. We were told that Millie...
