    All of it - it was fantastic. Brilliant location, excellent room and comfort of bed. Staff were great and food brilliant. Spa excellent.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The grounds were well maintained and there are many fine short walks in the vicinity

    The temperature of the water in the swimming pool was too high.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    The surroundings and the overall comfort of the hotel were excellent. The breakfast in particular was very good.

    Some of the reception staff could have been more friendly. There was no fridge in the room and no internet access without a lap-top.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Relaxation, comfort, friendliness of staff, good food and a perfect setting.

  • Couple
    4.2

    Nice spa and fitness.

    The room was an horror. Apparently if you book via "Booking" you will get the non renovated rooms. Those are dated of the last century, you hear the neighbour snoring. Shaving is almost impossible as the mirror is a meter away from the water basin where you have to choose between boiling or freezing water. It is rather a 2star hotel than a 4 star.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The luxury, the service, the welness en the surrounding. Everything was superb!

  • Couple
    7.8

    The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and the hotel is set in a magnificent part of the Highlands

    The decor and design is a bit old fashioned, complete with 'saxophone greatest hits album' played as background music throughout dinner.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Basically, we were pleased with everything about the hotel. If I had to select a few things to comment on, they would be the wonderful location by Loch Ard, the pleasant and helpful staff, and last but not least our great room---number 320. The view from our room was gorgeous. And the furnishing were nice including a lovely four poster bed. We enjoyed our stay there immensely and would book room 320 again.

    The one thing I would comment on is the problem getting free cell phone access. This probably is due to the remote location by Loch Ard.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Great comfortable rooms, nice location by loch with lots of good walking options in beautiful surroundings. Food fantastic, either room service or in restaurant are great, compliments to the chefs. Nice pool & gym too.

    Shame that wifi not included, would think for everything else then simple to include it rather than having to sign up to bt stuff.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The room was spacious and comfortable. The scenery was breathtaking. Staff were helpful. The food was good in the bistro. After a 86 mile motorbike ride it was like being in another world. The weather was amazing too.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Beautiful location, all staff extremely professional and very pleasant. A touch of class without being intimidating. Lovely modern pool and smashing big room, comfy beds, great breakfast. Well worth a visit,

  • Couple
    10.0

    Everything. Rooms, staff, location, grounds, food, surroundings. It was so nice a proposed to my girlfriend by the waterfall. And she said yes. So wonderful memories of our stay.

  • Couple
    10.0

    The room was great but the staff were absolutely fantastic and the service they provided to our group on our stay was second to none and always very professional and with good humour. A particular big thank you to Betsi who was in charge of the restaurant.

    I have absolutely none. Even the poor weather could not spoil the weekend.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The beauty of the setting of the hotel. The peace and tranquillity. The friendly staff.

    Perhaps some areas need some refurbishment.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    excellant hotel in excellant location

    hotel tried to charge another fee for the stay in the hotel although we had booked for the hotel through Booking .com and paid for it
