Disappointing first visitPosted 25/09/2013
Pros: Staff and the service they provided were excellent
Cons: Table service would be good at breakfast rather than a buffet
Overall stay was nice enough but wouldn't choose to return. If I'm staying in a hotel like this I expect my breakfast to be served and not buffet style. It was disappointing. The room we had was nice but no view other than rooftop so you would need to check.

Wonderful characterPosted 03/09/2013
Pros: Character of the building
Cons: Basic quality of standard amenities.
Location: See Loch Lomond, Oban, Loch Ness, Inveraray Castle.
Fantastic place to stay. Beautiful paneled walls, stone, class. Bedrooms are sizable but the trim is old. For instance I could open only some of the windows and had to prop them open. Others were painted or fastened closed. The weak extractor fan was overwhelmed by a steamy room after a shower. But the grounds made up for everything. We had an evening drink in a bar room outlooking the river Clyde. Bus boys wear kilts here. Enjoy.

Nice country hotelPosted 22/06/2013
Everything was 5 stars the staff, food, rooms. The only thing was that it is a bit outdated. We were very hot and the room has no AC. The beds are a bit hard. Overall it was good.

One of those "almost but not quite" hotels...Posted 03/06/2013 on Hotels.com
Mar Hall has the potential to be a great hotel, but is spoiled by the little things that make a good hotel into a great one. How many 4 or 5 star hotels nowadays charge for WiFi in public areas? When they print a leaflet, shouldn't the contents be printed the same way up as the cover, and not upside down? The staff are excellent, facilities are good and the location on the banks of the Clyde, superb. But would it really cost that much to give the drainpipes a lick of paint? They are close, but still only 90% there. It's that elusive last 10% that would make all the difference.

Very memorablePosted 19/12/2012
Pros: Atmosphere, the great doorman, middle aged and excellent at his job!
Cons: They should brush up on clients with dietary issues
Location: Beautiful, idyllic and magical setting
Very memorable, food great. The one thing they could do to encourage Celiac persons is brush up on their Gluten intolerant clients.

Fanyasyic building, beautiful views and settings and staff who did everything they could to help. The rooms were spacious and very clean and comfortable. The restaurant served very high quality food.

Fantastic hotel for quiet break!Posted 26/08/2012

Grand romantic getawayPosted 25/08/2012
Pros: The quiet location and grandure of the house and gardens
Cons: The welcome and the lack of attention to maintenance issues
Location: the hotel is set in beautiful woodlands and gardens overlooking the Clyde. It is the quietest hotel we have ever stayed in.
For a luxury 5 star hotel, the fabric of the buiding is a bit uncared for especially first impressions in the lobby and reception area. The receptionist then made us feel very unwelcome by denying knowledge of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World loyalty club of which we were a member. The hotel building and gardens were very grand and impressive and in a beautiful location but would have benefited from maps of the grounds and designated pathways for walks. The room we had was in the main part of the hotel and very large and comfortable - it was the quietest hotel room we had ever stayed in! Overall, the service was very good only soured by our greeting on arrival. We would recommend this hotel for the wonderful period buiding it is and grand rooms, although in need of some maintenance.
