The vote is in a fantastic location, right on the loch front and out loch view room benefited from that. The hotel in general is quite tired and in need of a refresh in carpets and painting. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was disappointing, very little choice and had to ask staff for a number of items they had run out of.
