Me and my wife spent 2 nights here as part of her birthday celebrations. We were met on arrival and actually taken to our room by Suzanne. The room was superb, every attention to detail considered, tartan trims, stag soft toy amongst tartan scatter cushions and even a Nessie to share the bath. The lodge and its grounds are immaculate. The bar well stocked with a great selection of Whisky and Gin. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings the food lived up to our expectations, well presented, good portion sizes, hot and very tasty. Well done to the chef. The bar was a great place to sit and chatter with locals and guests alike (extremely welcoming). We had breakfast both mornings, again plenty to choose from and very nice it was. Throughout our stay Ian was constantly on hand to make sure we had everything we needed (I take my hat of to both Ian and Suzanne, they work non stop to ensure everyone is content). I have already recommended this place to friends and sincerely hope to visit again in the future. We arrived as strangers and left as part of the family. It was the icing on the cake to my wife's birthday and I didn't even inform our hosts as my wife didn't want any fuss. Thank you for your hospitality, we really appreciated it. We hope to see you again soon.
We stayed at Glenspean Lodge only one night. We arrived early evening and left after breakfast. Dinner at the restaurant was nice. The landscape and view are amazing! The staff focused and hardworking, no time to chat with guest and extend extra friendliness. The internet/Wifi was absolutely terrible!! If you are looking to disconnect and just relax with the beautiful scenic views, this is the place for you. It was just a little too boring and maybe because of the age of the lodge it was a touch creepy. The room may be THE smallest room i have EVER stayed in. It was only my husband and i staying the night and the room was barely enough space to move. However, it was nice and clean. It met our needs but was not warm and inviting. We chose this lodge because it was close to the West Coast Railway and we were taking the Jacobite train the next morning. It was a 20 minute drive. I might add that you will need to be prepared to have all your meals at the Lodge because there is nothing around. The trip into Fort William (nearest town) would take nearly an hour round trip. This is a lovely remote Lodge, but it was not fitting for us. I would likely not stay here again.
My partner & I booked this place for the end of our NC500 trip as was on our route home - the previous days on our trip we had booked basic b&bs so we wanted something a little extra for our last stop and it didn't disappoint. As soon as you walk in the place it smells incredible and noticeably very well looked after. Our room was beautiful (Turret Room) and the bed was so comfortable! Small issue I would say is the shower wasn't the best it could be however everything else was pristine. Bathroom included mini (beautiful) toiletries. We made use of the hot tub and sauna which was lovely. There is also a games room. Wifi isn't great in the place but we were told that on arrival. We had a delicious dinner and enjoyed the variety of drinks available at the bar until late. Would thoroughly recommend the steak and venison - both cooked perfectly. Hats off to the chef. Service was great from Ian and the team and it's obvious they work hard. (would like to add a wee note about pudding - would be lovely to have some high quality Scottish ice cream - mines had maybe been in freezer too long as was slightly crystallised - pud still good though) - My partner had the Rhubarb flan - was great. Breakfast in the morning was also delicious - I went for plain oats - sounds boring but they were bloody lovely and creamy. Partner had the full Scottish and loved it. Would definitely recommend staying here. If we are in area again we would book here - even just for the food! Thanks Suzanne & Ian for a wonderful stay.
Good place to just spend the night. The bar and restaurant are correct, dinner was good but the breakfast was may be limited. Rooms were ok, clean and comfortable. Surroundings are beautiful but need to take the car to have a good walk.
This was one of the worst hotel experiences we've had in a long time. Our room was so small there wasn't the space to put both our small cabin-sized suitcases out. The bed was small and very uncomfortable. The bathroom was too small for two people to fit in at the same time - and although there was a paper 'sanitised' strip around the loo seat when we arrived the loo hadn't been flushed and so we were greeted by an unpleasant smell in the bathroom. We couldn't attach to the WIFI from our room and were told by the hotel owner that the internet speed is so slow it was often difficult to get on line. I did complain to the owner about the size of the room but was told it was the smallest room in the hotel and as we had booked so late (in March for a July stay) that was the last room left. However, despite being the smallest and undoubtedly the worst room (overlooking the car park) it still cost £140 for a night in which we hardly slept.
We were traveling around Scotland and stayed in a fantastic B and B near this hotel popped in and booked a table for the evening receptionist was great place was lovely .arrived in evening for our booking both staff behind the bar were great menu looked good beer was good.we hadn't been having much luck with accommodation or restaurants so we thought we had struck gold .ordered food had mussels for starter unfortunately they were well over cooked and the white sauce was like porridge not good . We were prepared to let this go because we were so hungry we thought we would wait for mains , I had steak which was presented well and the steak was good slightly under medium as ordered but okay the problem was that the herb butter on top of my steak looked pretty it was frozen solid like an ice cube such a shame , my wife had salmon which was £19 95 and was meant to be poached when it arrived it was dry and looked grilled and was very small and shrivelled up such a shame . Unable to attract servers attention and being hungry we ate it . When the server came to collect plates I mentioned the condition of the salmon and showed the butter which was still frozen the comment was sorry and she went off no interaction from management at all we were then asked if we wanted coffee or desert we declined although we did want to finish of meal with coffee brandy desert and cheese and biscuits .unfortuanatly what started as a very nice evening was spoilt by bad cookin and a lack of attention to detail and our evening spoilt . I felt obligated to giving the staff a tip as the service was good other than the response to our complaint, I wouldn't have normally tipped after having a bad meal . We understand that the place has recently changed ownership and all I can say is please make sure the food is checked and matches up to the rest of the experience.
We recently enjoyed a 1 night stay at Glenspean Lodge. It has been 19 years since we were last here and wondered why it's taken so long to come back. We stayed in the Braveheart suite. This is probably one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in. A lot of care & attention has obviously gone into decorating the whole hotel. Thanks to Ian & Suzanne for looking after us.
Stayed one night while travelling around the highlands. It's a beautiful hotel where the owners obviously take pride in it and it shows. Four poster room was gorgeous and very comfortable. Hot tub was great but I wish we'd been told there were robes in the wardrobe as it would've saved us dashing through the hotel in our towels! Evening meal and breakfast both to a high standard but I did miss baked beans with the breakfast but I guess that's just an English thing! Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone in the area.
My husband has already reviewed our stay but I wanted to add my thanks to Ian for being such a welcoming and helpful host. We had a delicious dinner and enjoyed drinks in the bar til late. Our room was absolutely beautiful, stunning furnishings and a modern and bright bathroom. Such a peaceful and serene place! Had a lovely breakfast the next morning. I would happily have stayed on! Fabulous service, couldn't fault the hotel in any way.
Booked this spot because it looked intriguing in photos. What a,good decision! Greeted by owner Ian who couldn't be more helpful and was on hand all night to cater for all his guests. Great food, great whiskys. Fantastic breakfast. Book it now!
