Negative Reviews

A road runs between the hotel and the loch.

There is a road that runs between the peaceful waters and the hotel, a disappointment for those looking for undisturbed views.


Rooms and bathrooms have seen better days.

Uncomfortable pillows, old bathroom suites, and tired furnishings are some of the complaints that lead guests to say the hotel could do with a revamp.
