Got a deal on 5pm. We upgraded to loch side view room's. The extra supplement made the trip a wee bit more expensive, however the price was bumped up by the absolute extortionate price of the bar. This has to be the most expensive place i have ever drank in. I mean nearly £7 for a G&T! Right the room...

Lovely location overlooking Loch Rannoch, open log fire and friendly staff. The swimming pool was warm and the sauna as new. Would recommend the porridge served with honey, red berries and almonds -yum!

As with any Macdonald hotel, the staff at Loch Rannoch were superb! However, the hotel itself seems a little like 'the poor relation' of Macdonald hotels. The room we were in initially did not have any hot water, unless we ran all of the taps at the same time - who wants to do that every time you need to...

The hotel restaurant is excellent, the bar prices are extortionate, for this reason we will not be returning, £4.20/pint. It ruins your whole break. I am sure there's a few nice hotels in the area who'd appriciate the business and not sting you in the pocket like this.

Loch Rannoch is an old hunting lodge, way out in the middle of nowhere. Comfortable and clean. Lovely views from the front rooms (we stayed on the second floor in the older part of the hotel).

The alleged 'executive' rooms are standard rooms with slippers and robes! All a bit shabby inside. Good was nice if not overpriced. The bar prices are extortionate and due to the location (out in the middle of nowhere) they have you captive. Great location if you're an outdoorsy type, which I'm not. Very scenic in November.
