Recent TripAdvisor reviewers have had this to say about Muthu Ben Doran Hotel (we have shortened their comments for length):
‘Food was good, a different meal every day. Good menu for breakfast. Service was excellent and staff very friendly…’
‘Quiet and relaxing. Rooms were clean and tidy, fresh towels each day, food was good with choice, the staff in dining room excellent, nothing a bother and hadn’t to be asked a second time for anything. A lovely relaxing time was had by all…’
‘Just returned from a weekend break at the Ben Doran, and what can I say, it was great! Hard to find any faults with the hotel at all, and for the price, it is amazing value. Externally the hotel is set in lovely grounds, set back from the road, and looks quite classy. The reception area is very welcoming, as are the staff. The rooms are clean & tidy, if a bit dated, but slippers & dressing gowns, really!! Plenty of tea & coffee, shortbread, then a bottle of wine in the room. Dining room & bar are on the top floor, unusual, but with large windows, the views in summer must be breathtaking. The food was well presented by friendly attentive staff, who could not do enough for you. A great base hotel for a visit to the highlands or for a welcome break on your travels, would definitely go again.’
Today’s Big Deal from Muthu Ben Doran Hotel at Loch Lomond National Park is flexible enough to let you create a getaway tailored to you. Once there, you can enjoy a range of activities, from hiking to golfing to shopping.
