Recently returned home from a National Holiday four day break based at the Claymore Hotel. Despite the tired look of some parts of this lovely hotel it is clear a programme of refurbishment is underway. The rooms are extremely comfortable, the hotel is warm and the staff always ready to oblige, what more can you ask on such a bargain...

Did this trip in early December and what a great time we had. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful. The food was superb and hot with plenty to eat and to have a choice was even better. The gala night was great. The entertainment was refreshing but was let down on the last night....

Wanted to visit this hotel for a long time as other friends had told how welcoming it was. However we visited for a Turkey and Tinsel week with National Holidays and have to say was very disappointed. Perhaps I'd expected something more magical from the experience. A couple of Christmas trees and twinkling lights around the fireplace isn't quite enough...

Many thanks for your review on trip advisor. I just have a few comments to add to your review. The Turkey and Tinsel breaks started on Monday 7th November and ran for 7 weeks. The hotel is decorated from that date and more decorations are added at the beginning of December so that by the time Christmas comes every public...

We went with parent (my in-laws) for the Hogmanay celebration as a one off and our first National Holiday. On first glance and arrival, the hotel is picturesque and in such a stunning location. The bar and reception areas are beautiful, bar is very cosy and welcoming especially when the fire is going. There then serenity stops....the rooms!! Dilapidated, run...

Many thanks for your in depth review of your recent stay over the new Year celebrations although I must correct you on some of the points you have mentioned here. The baths in the room are of standard size and we have had no complaints about them before. The kitchen is more than capable of serving 177 dinners every night...

We went with a group of friends on a National holiday two night break to this hotel. The view of Loch Long from the front of the hotel was very good and it is in a pleasant location. As is often the case with National holidays the rooms are rather tired but they are reasonably clean and warm. The staff...
