Just returned from the Glenisle which was a haven of comfort and service while the weather outside was wet and dismal. Pleasant and attentive staff made sure that our every wish was met while the kitchen provided meals of a very high standard The bedrooms and log fired lounges were also extremely comfortable and rounded off a pleasant value-for-money break.

Helpful, friendly staff who are always attentive and ensure an experience not to be missed. A delicate menu with a clever choice of local food, cooked to perfection which meets everyone's taste. The bar area has a delightful ambiance where a good Scotch whisky can be thoroughly enjoyed.

After staying in the Glenisle Hotel almost every year for the last ten years, we recently celebrated our golden wedding there, with our family. As usual, the staff in the hotel went out of their way to make our celebration perfect. Many, many thanks to the Glenisle, and we look forward to our next visit in the near future.

we had an amazing room with bath tub overlooking the loch and so much space. the sunrise bathed the room in crimson which was stunning to see. Food is excellent including breakfasts. Room 7 is stunning and worth the extra stairs we climber. The staff are very responsive and proud of their hotel
