I booked two nights at Comlongon as a quiet getaway for my partner and myself, the first night was exactly that... mostly because it snowed from the heavens and we were the only guests! We both felt right at home from the start. Breakfast was served in the bedroom by the very friendly staff and was perfect. The second night...

Dear Reviewer, thank you taking the time to leave your comments after your stay with us.
