    The room was fantastic, good size and clean. Staff were very polite and friendly, were more than accomodating with the trecherous weather over that weekend.

    The only adverse comment would be the check in time. I believe 15.00 is too late a check in. I only stayed for the night and feel that by the time we checked in it did not allow much time before the weather faded to explore the glorious surroundings.

    Superb

    The friendliness of the staff and their helpful attitude

    The hotel is looking a bit "tired" and could do with a makeover in places. Our room for instance was not what we would consider and "executive room". It sets itself out as a 4* luxury hotel but on first glance in some areas this is not what you see. This is in some ways related to the age of the building.

    The staff were friendly and extremely helpful

    The lack of mobile signal meant that one of our party had to use the hotel phone to contact her father who wasn hospital. The charges for using theis phone I felt were excessive, considering you had no choice due to lack of mobile signal.

    Spa facilties, choice of 2 restaurants and location for walks etc

    If there would be anything I'd change - it would be the floorboards/insulation in the room above -my husband and I were woken by the heavy footed people staying above.

    Superb

    staff were all excellent. food excellent, leisure suite excellent.

    there was no lift in our part of the hotel and our room was on the top floor. Floorboards in the room were very creaky but perhaps this is to be expected in an older hotel. We did book the day before and I think it was the last room available so maybe we shouldn't leave it so late next time.

    Superb

    The location was excellent being set on the edge of Loch Ard. There were opportunities to hill walk from the hotel and some of the pleasure drives passed through some outstanding countryside. Overall a great place to relax.

    If staying with children, beware the hot water which was ridiculously hot.

    Fabulous

    the staff at the hotel could not do enough for us and they all worked as a team

    yes the decor could have been so much better the paint and carpets were very tired and there could have been sky in the rooms

    Superb

    I loved the location. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. Our room was great. The food was very good. The gardens were great and the view over the Loch was superb.

    Our room was on the ground floor and it was overlooked by the car park - some net curtains on the window would have been appreciated to give some privacy.

    Very good

    The staff were very attentive. There were extensive leisure facilities. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The scenery setting was breathtaking.

    It would benefit from a little bit of a makeover. The watersports section particularly could do witha facelift

    The location of the Hotel and surroundings as well as looking over the loch, very picturesque.

    I would say the room I stayed in the decore and furniture is a little datated as I expected this to be more modern looking.
