Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A wonderful setting beside the loch’ with views across the water to Schiehallion, the local Munro, makes Jade and Alice Calliva’s former coaching inn a superbly relaxing place to stay. The bar and snug oozes rustic-chic charm, with an open fire and white-painted beams, while the first-floor dining and sitting room is breezy with blue-painted beams, velvet-covered sofas and leather armchairs. There are plenty of books if you can pull yourself away from the stunning loch views. Bedrooms are uncluttered havens with muted colours, goatskin rugs on well-worn floorboards, a mix of contemporary and vintage furniture, and perhaps a simple hanging rail. Colourful artwork is a nice touch along with ‘luxurious’ extras including robes, home-made shortbread, a coffee machine and complimentary whisky. All but one room has a bath as well as shower. The ‘very good’ dinner offers dishes such as herb-crusted Perthshire lamb with salsa verde, and home-made ravioli filled with butternut squash pesto. Generous breakfasts include freshly squeezed juice, omelette, smoked salmon and a full grill.
