Very pleased with our visit to Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa.
Very high praise for hardworking and efficient staff who never seem to leave the place!
The hotel itself has a lovely warm, relaxed feel about the place. The bar and reception area especially with the cosy log fire and armchairs (which we managed to nab for an hour on our first night, it's always occupied, but you can see why)
Our room was ok, the ugraded furniture made it seem a little more modern, Beds were very spacious and comfortable. Bathroom a little dated but did the job! Nice deep bath and powerful warm shower.
We would have LOVED a better view than the car park in our room but for the time we actually spent in our room it was little to grumble about.
Ah the spa.... massage was lovely as was the lady who carried it out, therapy rooms are low lit with ambient music and relaxing candles. Loved the wooden furniture too.
It was a shame that we could not use the jacuzzi or outdoor hot tub as they were being serviced, We were really looking forward to that. Heated pool and steam, sauna room were fine.
The changing room facilities are modern but if I'm honest.... a little grubby, the floor was soaked with old water and showers had soap scum on the base from god knows when. I wasn't totally put off but would recommend these are given a little more attention.
Food was very indulgent (diet went out the window) the taster menu was great value and we really liked that we had freedom to upgrade to discounted ala carte menu if we fancied it. Wine was delicious, they ran out of my favourite on the first night and this never came back in sadly however.... it allowed me to try something new (every cloud and all that)
You couldn't ask more from the breakfast menu, lots of quality items on offer in terms of cereal, porridge, fruit, croissonts. Nice coffee and tasty warm options. My fiance recevied a freezing cold egg on his breakfast on day 2, don't know what that was about. Breakfast is a very busy time and as mentioned before... the staff really go out of their way to make sure you are well looked after.
Have since recommended the hotel to all of my friends and family. Great value if you take the deals. Lovely surroundings in a quaint and welcoming town. We will be back!
