Just off square.
Unique hotel that was a bit spread out. We had 4 rooms & were separated by quite a walk. Love the access to athletic club, but very odd hours & rules. Kids didn’t get to enjoy pool like planned. Beds & pillows were just ok. We came during a warmer than usual time & our room took awhile to cool down. Visit drymen bakery & deli, Buchanan castle ruins & glengoyne distillery while here. Hit stirling castle on your way to/from. Our group agreed enjoyed more than Edinburgh Castle.

Very comfortable for an overnight stay.
Stayed here for an overnight stop whilt travelling from the South East to Inverness. Hotel was very comfortable. Very large room - spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed for an overnight stop. Our first room had an issue with the toilet flush. Reported to reception and we were moved straight away to the room next door.
