Arrived on 30th May for 6 day group holiday tun by a coach tour company. Had a disabled room with walk in shower. Waited 24 hours for stool/chair so that my husband could shower. Shower curtain did not reach the floor, so all water going out into bathroom therefore making it a serious slip hazard. Reported to manager but no action taken. Had to use towels to mop up floor. Grab rail on side of shower spray rusting and in need of repair. There was no ventilation in bathroom so when we used shower steam settled and remained on toilet cistern, running down and settling in puddles beneath. Although there was a clean room sticker on door, phone, remote control and kettle, there were other areas in room that left a lot to be desired. Dust on headboard and window frames needed a very good cleaning. Our dinner on the first night was late, and as an apology for this, we were plied with free wine. That experience didn’t change throughout our stay, in fact by our last night, this was a lot worse. If this had be3n my first experience of Scotland, then I would never return. Also on the last night we had to ask for salt, the thing that was put in front of us by a waitress was absolutely filthy and the salt in the container was solid in the bottom. Sometimes not enough cutlery on tables and orders were mixed up. We had a couple of packed lunches provided by hotel, and on one occasion had an out of date by 8 months packet of biscuits. Never, never, never again will I use or recommend this hotel.

Our first stopover on the West Highland way and despite a good price, not the best room. Above the noisy kitchen, smelt of chip fat, and if you shut the window it was too hot. Also, the bed was rock hard with a shiny slidey cover sheet on it. We slept on top of the duvet. Still, quiet at night and we ordered just what we wanted for breakfast off the menu. Decent enough stopover, someone has to get the dodgy rooms. It was us. The place was full, and the staff were great, but very busy and seemed overworked.

We stayed at the Winnock hotel as a family of 3. The central village location is nice and around 20 mins from Loch Lomond, due to this location it means the rooms are quite expensive particularly for what they are. The rooms did have cleanliness stickers on the door, however this appeared to be more for covid compliance than actual cleanliness with old and dirty appliances stashed in drawers. Dirty floors and very dusty surfaces. There were also a number of appliances that didn’t work, lamps and a random bath TV! On arrival there were no towels and complimentary soaps were lacking, for £160 I would at least expect some shampoo! On requesting towels they were provided, however no bath mat or hand towel. The room we had included a balcony, the door to this did not lock and the balcony itself had not been cleaned in a very long time. The decking too appeared quite unsafe. Dinner in the bar was quite nice. However the low point of the stay was a fire alarm at 22.30. From conversations other guests were having this was due to guests smoking in their room, and this was the 3rd occasion that week. We were told that it was ‘vapour from someone’s shower’ however you couldn’t miss the cigarette smoke billowing from guests windows. As they knew this was an issues this should not have been allowed to continue. Covid adherence was minimal with a number of staff (including the manager) walking around with no masks. I understand some people are exempt, however I feel in a customer facing / hospitality environment they should have been working in other parts of the hotel as to not make customers feel uncomfortable. Breakfast was ok, only the Scottish breakfast. The continental breakfast was awful. Two slabs of ham, 2 slices of cheese and a couple of chopped tomatoes. Despite the menu stating yogurt, cereal, and fruit. Service for this meal was equally poor. I would not recommend staying here, the only saving grace was the food. They are cashing in on the proximity to tourist attractions, however do not have the facilities to warrant the high prices. If Glasgow had not been in level 3 we would have stayed in a much nicer hotel for around the same price.

We had a meal in the bar, the food was great, they had some really good gluten free options. If you are on a walking trip you will probably need more than one course, portion sizes are perfect normally but not enough if you've done a lot of walking. People working their were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

My husband & I stayed a night in this hotel at the end of our first day doing the West Highland Way. We found everything to our liking during our stay - nice sized room, comfortable bed, good shower. We had dinner at the hotel and breakfast the following morning which were both lovely. Would recommend staying here.
