We went to The Claymore with National Holidays and stayed for 4 nights, arriving home last Friday (17th).
The room was basic but clean, the only thing letting it down was the hard lumpy bed and no shower, just a bath, but the view was quite spectacular, even though we hadn't paid extra for a scenic room!
The food was on the whole very good with plenty of choice, well served by our waitress, Angela who always had a smile to greet us with.
The free bar was excellent value and the queue was dealt with quickly. I upgraded my drinks so I could have Couvoisier brandy instead of some unheard of brand; well worth the 50p upgrade price!
The excursions were good, particularly the extra trip to Glasgow with an excellent guided tour by Don, who was drafted in to give our regular driver Joe a day off.
The evening entertainment was a bit hit and miss, but we enjoyed it all nevertheless.
The majority of the other guests were lovely, which was an unexpected bonus, and we even made friends with a few people that we will stay in contact with!
On the whole, it was an excellent value for money holiday, well worth the money.

Room Tip: Pay the extra premium for a scenic room, or take pot luck!

Room Tip: pay the £10 room upgrade as you get a lovely view from the front of the hotel over looking loch long...
