Decided to book a late break away for my wife and I and chose The Loch Rannoch Hotel as our destination. Went with an open mind due to the conflicting reviews. We found all staff to be excellent and very friendly and very accommodating and couldn't fault anyone at the hotel. We thought the bar meals were a little expensive...

Just had a short break here with my wife and kids and it didn't disappoint. Our family room (room 217) was a good size with comfortable beds and had a beautiful view of the loch.

Not too bad stay however I would not recommend since there are many more hotels that offer better. We looked forward to our evening meal to be served for once but we were very disappointed that Fillet Steak was not on menu in Scottish Hotel. The food we did have was not bad though.
