Disappointing location

Pros: It was stylish. Good size room and bathroom.
Cons: The room needs some repainting and wall paper repair. A bar fridge and safe would have been nice.
Location: Loch Lomond is a drive away and is beautiful.
First impression was great. The common areas are very stylish but our room could have done with some T.L.C. I know there is much debate about how comfortable beds are, but we both didn't sleep as well as we had been. The bathroom was modern with a shower over the bath. The room had a small table with two chairs plus a desk with a chair. No dressing table but two bedside tables. No safe or bar fridge. It was always warm thanks to a very efficient radiator and there were two opening windows for fresh air. The village was OK and there are a few restaurants, plus one at the hotel. The biggest minus was the distance from the Loch. It wasn't a stroll away and you have to drive to see it. If you plan to stay more than a few days and have the time to drive everywhere, no problem, but my plan of a leisurely walk from the hotel to the Loch's shores was sadly never going to happen.
