Drymen is a nice village lots of options for dining etc. The hotel is nicely place for that . Staff were friendly & very good breakfast
We only had to pay an extra £5 each to use the swimming pool/ssuna/steam room and jacuzzi for the time we were staying which is a great deal as we used it the day we arrived and the morning we left
No hairdryer in the room Everytime someone used the bar toilet we could hear the hand dryer being used. Breakfast cereals all had the wrong label on basket.luckily I knew what l was what by looking but my girlfriend just took cereal by looking at labels and luckily she has allergies(if someone had nut allergies could have been dangerous)
Helpful receptionist, well located for the village
Room was a bit smelly, shower curtain mouldy. Not enough towels and no shower mat in bathroom. Hotel breakfast was disappointing. Try Skoosh for breakfast, cafe 2 mins out of hotel
Room and beds were clean. Location lovely. Staff were courteous. Food at dinner was very good.
Remote for tiny tv didn’t work, room rather dated, very strong smell of bleach resonating from bathroom into room a little over powering. We were in farthest room 20 therefore had a labyrinth of corridors to gain access and were not impressed by the lack of care in presentation of carpets, which had not been hoovered which therefore heightened the datedness of hotel. I have a family member who has booked a wedding here 2021 and if it was me and my guests were booked to stay I would be cancelling! ... we were not impressed that there was no such thing as a wine list available in a ‘Hotel Restaurant’ and the choice of red wine was limited to 3 and were rather underwhelmed by the Echo Falls Merlot best of 3 choice! ... Eeek!
Room wasn't very clean - no one vacuumed the carpet, towels had dirty stains on them. Walls were paper thin, co we clearly heard people in the next room talking, other guests' TV, running water, closing doors.
