We stayed for one evening as the location is very special to us. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was spotless and the views spectacular. The room service breakfast is a must. A stunning retreat and a hidden gem.

unfortunately the hotel is starting to feel it's age and really needs a full upgrade. However it was still a very relaxing time. We had a room over looking Loch Rannoch and even though the weather was poor the views were spectacular. This hotel has an amazing location, the owners really need to make sure the hotel is worthy of...

Enjoyed a 2 night winter break in early February. Room was spacious and clean with fantastic views over the Loch. Found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Food was good and enjoyed the evening atmosphere in the bar after a days walking. Would definitely return.

We had an executive room with spectacular views over the Loch, bedroom was very comfortable and clean. Restaurant meals were very good with attentive staff although service was a little bit slow at times. Overall the hotel is a little bit tired but the location and the general service more than made up for that. Not quite 5 stars but...

We stayed for two nights and the only fault we have with this hotel is the pricing in the bar and the restaurant (felt the food we received in the restaurant wasn't worth what we paid and the pricing for alcohol is quite high) but despite this we had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The rooms were spacious, clean...

I have to say, I was quite disappointed by our stay at the Loch Rannoch Hotel. We upgraded our room to an executive suite with a view of the Loch, which I would definitely recommend doing if you are going to stay. The view was absolutely beautiful, and really the best thing about the hotel. The room itself was large...

We stayed for 2 nights at Loch Rannoch in February. It was wonderful. The staff are all so attentive especially the waiting staff, who were excellent. The food in the restaurant was amazing. We had a fantastic room with beautiful views also. The swimming pool, steam room and sauna were also great. We will be returning again very soon.

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.
