Good Hotel Guide Review
On the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, John and Susan Martin’s small hotel – ‘a haven of tranquillity and good food’ – is liked for its ‘ideal location’ and ‘friendly, efficient’ staff. ‘John is a particularly affable host,’ say Guide readers in 2017. After 13 years juggling home and hearth, the Martins have handed over management of the restaurant to a local restaurateur couple, Veronica and Csaba Brunner. (The Martins, and their collection of more than 120 malt whiskies, will still stick around.) Some of the ‘tastefully decorated’ bedrooms have views across the main road to meadows and river, and the hills beyond; ‘double glazing provides efficient sound insulation’. ‘Our spacious superior room had a super-king-size bed and a small sitting area with a sofa.’ At dinner, Csaba Brunner’s menu, accompanied by a ‘reasonably priced’ wine list, has ‘some unusual combinations’. ‘We especially liked the seared duck fillet with a parsnip purée.’ ‘It’s good value, with the bonus of easy access to some of the best Highland scenery – even for those, like us, without a car.’ (Philip Bright, Alan and Edwina Williams, John and Theresa Stewart, John and Elspeth Gibbon)
