It was with a tear in the eye that I returned to the Loch Altan in September. I've stayed in the hotel every year for the past 20, until Covid came along and we had to cancel the 2020 trip.
We all feared for the hospitality industry during Covid - it was devastating - but I'm happy ro say that the Loch Altan has survived! As soon as I walked through the doors, I got the same warm feeling - it was like coming home.
The entrance lobby has been given a lick of paint - not that it needed it - bit it feels very fresh.
The evening restaurant has just re-opened the day we arrived - we expected a few hiccups early on, but they weren't any. As usual they were so accommodating to our big and sometimes random group.
The bar menu is new. Over 3 weeks I worked my way through everything and can recommend it all - but especially the seafood chowder, the haddock and the steak.
This September was beautifully warm so I can't comment on things like central heating - but as usual there was plenty of hot water - an essential for watersports folk.
As usual I can't fault the place and will back next yearMore
