Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the Loch Rannoch Hotel on a 5 pm deal for 2 nights b+b. Hotel is old and comfy, a perfect base for a couple of days walking. Staff really nice, food good, views amazing, not many facilities if bringing kids and wine prices rather steep. Lovely relaxed hotel with attentive staff. Would use again.

We have stayed in several Macdonald Hotels around England and Scotland and this one did not disappoint. Yes, the building is a little run down and could do with some investment, but that does not warrant a poor rating. Our room was large, well equipped and very clean. Our only gripe was the pillows; they were the worst pillows we...

We took advantage of a Groupon deal as we love this area and, having dined in the hotel bar several times on a previous visit, we were looking forward to a stay of two nights. Traditionally furnished, the lovely old building has a very peaceful ambience, and we were made very welcome by the staff on reception. Our twin room...

We were swiftly checked in by a very friendly and equally helpful receptionist Zoe. My homely and clean room provided a great view over the Loch and I could not ask for a better nights sleep. In the evening we treated ourselves to a meal in the bar and were waited on to our every need by Sylvia and Joe....

We were made welcome on our arrival, everything was as we had requested and the staff were very helpful. They quickly explained the requirements for the Gym, pool and Sauna area, advising that we could collect towels at the reception desk. I had not noticed that there was a fitness center when I made my booking. Finding out later we...

Just returned from a great short break at Loch Rannoch. We had a 5pm Deal - £98 for 2 nights B&B with cream tea & prosecco on arrival ( we did upgrade to an executive loch view room for an extra £40 - well worth it, huge room with great view, bathrobe & slippers, mineral water ) good leisure facilities,...

We stayed at the Macdonald Loch Rannoch Hotel three times during 2007,2008 and 2009. After the quite sudden passing of my sister it took until 2017 to finally return as a group with the intention of tackling Schiehallion (which we did)! All of the staff at the hotel were fantastic, there are too many names to mention, Connor with his...

Spent a couple of nights here last week. Nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We upgraded our room to a loch view which I would recommend. Good food and good selection. Nice pool and sauna but only thing that let this down was the need to go outside to reach it as it's in separate building from hotel. Situated...

Dear Caroline W Thank you for your recent highly positive feedback via tripadvisor, Im glad you enjoyed both the hotel and the location. Unfortunately with our building being a traditional victorian building our leisure facilities had to be built outwith the actual building. Thank you for your kind comments overall, we hope to welcome you back very soon. Marc A...

Dear Jeanette M Thank you for your recent feedback via tripadvisor, unfortunately we do not currently have fully accessible disabled bedrooms with appropriate facilities although this is an area we are working on.

We visited this hotel over the Easter weekend. It has to be the most idillic setting for a hotel ever, just beautiful. We got off to a shaky start at check in. We were given our keys, headed up to our room, which unfortunately hadn't been made up yet, and was still messy from the previous occupants. It was sorted...
