Last week while on business in Scotland I was lucky enough to stay at The Cluny Bank Hotel. I can safely say that it was THE highlight of my visit to Scotland (hotel wise at least, even this gem can't compete with some of the Scottish scenery!)
My room was tastefully furnished and I was escorted to it by mein-host who made sure that everything was acceptable for me! Jules and Lloyd are wonderful people for whom hospitality is the be-all and end-all of running their business, and it shows.
The hotel is small, but with service which would put many larger hotels to shame. In fact I am from Marlow in Buckinghamshire with many Michelin starred restaurants on the doorstep and the food served at Cluny Bank would not be out of place at any of them. In fact while having dinner my mind did start to wander towards The Complete Angler on the Thames in Marlow, the food really was that good and the young lady who served me (sorry I didn't get your name!) was charming, discrete and attentive. All the quality of the top restaurants with none of the stuffiness!
All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to this area of Scotland. In fact, even if you have to travel a bit further, it's worth it!
Thank you for a lovely stay, it's just a shame it wasn't for longer!
