Good Hotel Guide Review

On a winding road, past woods, ferns and steel-grey lochs, John and Susan Martin’s ‘good-value, well-located’ small B&B is ‘a haven of tranquillity and good food’. The ‘affable hosts’ and their ‘efficient’ staff give visitors a ‘friendly welcome’. There’s no lounge, but a collection of single malts (120 and counting), displayed behind a handsome oak bar, provides enjoyable sampling. Afterwards, a ‘good night’s rest’ awaits in ‘spotless, tasteful’ bedrooms, helped by ‘good double glazing for efficient sound insulation’. Some have views across the main road to fields, river and rising hills; others a super-king-size bed and a small sitting area with a sofa; each has a ‘modern, stylish’ bathroom with plenty of hot water. Breakfast, cooked to order, is ‘excellent’. Within ‘easy access’ of Loch Lomond and the Highlands, ‘even for those of us without a car’. ‘We enjoyed our stay.’ (PB, A and EW, J and EG)

Guest comments

'We stayed in a superior bedroom which had lots of room, a super-king bed, a large bathroom. The staff were all friendly and efficient, John the host especially affable. The owners have leased the restaurant to Veronica and Csaba Brunner who have lots of experience in the restaurant trade. The food they served was fine with some unusual combinations, some of which didn’t always quite work; others were excellent. ' - Alan & Edwina Williams - March, 2017
'On the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs N, providing National Park providing easy access to some of the best Highland scenery even for those like us with no car, helped by the local authorities developmentg of DRT or Demand Resources Travel, a scheme to replace abandoned bus services, that books taxis but only charges the equivalent price of a bus if it had still run. Very useful for visitors as well as local people. Very good value. ' - John and Theresa Stewart Stewart - May, 2016
