It's been a few years since I last visited The Old Inn but I remember it then as a warm and welcoming hotel. Nothing has changed since then although this time it was an emergency and not a holiday that took me there. Having had to call the Recovery Services when my car broke down, I went looking for wifi...

Tucked away off the roadside is this little gem. The food is delicious and cooked beautifully with a lovely presentation. The menu is quite small but offers a great variety to suit all tastes. Including venison and haggis for those wanting to try it. The staff are friendly and with it's casual atmosphere you can sit and relax and enjoy...

This is a lovely inn in a beautiful area of Scotland. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and relaxing. We had dinner in the bar which was certainly up to the standard of very good pub food. The service was excellent. Breakfast was also very good. Would thoroughly recommend this inn to anyone...

We stayed for two nights in the old inn. We were impressed with our room and the views were amazing from our window. The pub food was standard tasty pub grub however our chicken starter was raw in the middle but was quickly resolved. There was a good atmosphere in the pub but the service was not great. Felt we...

It's many years since we stayed at The Old Inn and it's much improved, not a criticism. Our stay was really enjoyable, lovely room, the staff were superb and I just can't fault it. The food was great, and I've never tasted a more delicious Venison Steak in my life. The only down side was on our last night, and...

Very pleasant surroundings and a welcoming bar and little restaurant. It is not that bad because I stayed two nights and came back later for one more night. However, here follows a little advice for the owners. While you are closed in the winter give the place a thorough clean and go on a course to learn how to create...

Room facilities very comfortable, excellent value for a 3star establishment. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We have a 5 month old puppy, housetrained but at that age you never know! Highly recommended if you are doing the "500". Extensive choice for breakfast.

Very pleasant room on 1st floor with private terrace / balcony overlooking the footbridge. The ensuite shower room was well appointed, with a step up to the shower & heated towel rail. Food was in the dining room overlooking the grounds / car park to the rear. Each table had a tea-light for the evening meal and there were fresh...

Quaint, cosy, good food, our favourite return hotel. So - having read recent reviews I thought I would come to the aid of one of my favourite small hotels in one of the best areas of the West Highlands. This is not a corporate hotel a for those types who have been watching too much Hotel Inspector but a small...

Stopped in early October. Expected to find a quaint old inn. The reality was an old inn in need of modernising and staff in need of training or supervision. No one on reception. Breakfast quite basic. Rooms no better than a budget hotel. Several awards displayed but all from years gone by. There are far better options avavailble.
