Nice break for my wife's birthday - stunning get a way location with fab walks. We booked a room overlooking the Loch which was really nice.

Just returned home from a fantastic weekend for a Ceilidh, made lots of new friends. Hotel was full of character, good food and drink. Service was a bit slow at time, but hotel was full so understandable.

Has to be one of the most scenic locations for a hotel in the UK. We had a "classic" room with a view overlooking the loch across to Schiehallion. The room was well appointed but possibly a bit dated in terms of furnishings etc. Cleanliness was excellent. Had dinner both nights in the dining room and the food was excellent....

Had an absolutely lovely overnight stay at the Loch Rannoch hotel. This was the second time we had stayed here and I have been blown away both times. We managed to get a great deal for the hotel that included a three course dinner, overnight stay and breakfast. The hotel itself is in an ideal location overlooking the gorgeous Loch....

Very tired hotel in need of upgrading in all areas. Old fashioned radiators with no on off control making room like a Furness and uncomfortable. Cleaning of toilets not up to scratch and ladies toilets beside reception disgusting. On plus side the chef is excellent and seems out of place in this old run down hotel.

Steeped in tradition and rich in heritage, the hotel invites one to step back to a quieter time, while still enjoying the comfort of a superb hotel.
