‘Room was tidy, staff were helpful. Stayed for one night and I enjoyed it. Food was delicious. Great atmosphere in the bar when it turns to dancing. Great night. I will definitely be staying here if I go back to Balloch for a night.’
‘Our room was very clean. The towels were fluffy and white and the bedding was very comfortable and very clean. Our evening meal and wine was enjoyable and the breakfast was nice and hot and tasty and served by a very lovely lady who was both friendly and informative. All the staff were very helpful. The hotel was very quiet, however, it seems later in the week that it can be busy and noisy. Choose your time. We would stay there again if in the area.’
‘Loved this hotel the staff were super friendly and efficient; the drinks are reasonably priced and the food was lovely. Added bonus was the karaoke and the friendly locals then on to the nightclub in hotel. If u don’t like noise then this is not the place for you. The rooms are clean but basic but all in all value for money.’
