We probably wouldn't have booked this if we had looked at reviews beforehand. We did look at a few before we went and our expectations weren't high.
There are good things about this hotel - the location is fantastic - right on the shore of Loch Awe - the views across the loch, particularly in the atmospheric autumn weather were beautiful.
Unfortunately, the disappointment starts when you check in - the receptionist was brusque with us. There is no lift so we had to carry our bags upstairs and the room was just about acceptable. One of the towels left out for us had a large stain on it and the towels themselves were rather small. The breakfast was fine but a bit disorganised - they ran out of tables on the first morning. We had to get a bowl or cup on the table changed each morning - we couldn't understand how you can lay a table with crockery that obviously isn't clean.
Access to the hotel is by a three mile single track road (with passing places) - the hotel itself doesn't seem worth it when you get there.
It seemed such a pity that it is like this - with a bit of TLC and better staff, this could be a wonderful place to stay.More
