Loch view executive double room - good sized room with sofa and a winged armchair, perfect for my husband with a bad back. Good additional makeup/shaving mirror in the bathroom. Room 218 did have a view over the loch but you couldn't sit on a chair and look out. The hotel and room was very clean and comfortable. Drink prices...

Evening meals can be taken a little more informally and less expensively - though less exclusively - in the bar (quality and service still excellent though). My one...

We enjoyed our stay and were well looked after by your helpful and friendly staff. We had lunch in the bar and dinner in the restaurant which were both good but I did feel the price was excessive. In addition, as the hotel was very quiet the £20 supplement for a Friday night reservation could not be justified.

Stayed 2 days DBB in MacDonald Loch Rannoch and had such a good time! Service, food, room, fireplace, pool/sauna/steam room - everything excellent. This was the 7th MacDonald hotel we have visited and this is the best in our experience. The staff all made us feel so welcome, David the manager is a gem. We will return, soon❤️

Spent one night dinner, bed and breakfast here and loved this hotel. We had driven up from Fife and spent the day cycling round the loch. This comfortable welcoming hotel was perfect for us.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the heart of the Highlands, the hotel is situated on the north shore above Loch Rannoch and the picturesque village of Kinloch Rannoch with majestic views of the loch and hills that are simply breathtaking. The magnificent setting is the ideal location to enjoy a break away from busy lives or a romantic retreat. 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. Looking for somewhere to enjoy quality Scottish food? There is a fine selection of meals to be enjoyed in The Ptarmigan Restaurant or the Schiehallion Bar. Here at our Loch Rannoch Perthshire hotel we use only the freshest of ingredients to provide fantastic food, expertly prepared, in beautiful surroundings with superb service. And when you need to unwind, our Leisure Club is the ideal way to relax after a long day. Heated swimming pool, steam room, sauna and gym are on offer to relieve stress and leave you feeling refreshed. For the more energetic, Schiehallion - our local Munro - beckons.
