The Ben Doran surrounded by Alpine forests boasts of a gorgeous mountain view, nestled in its own sheltered seven-acre garden in the mountain village of Tyndrum on the northern edge of the Loch Lomond National Park. The hotel was built creatively with the unique feature of having the dining room and lounges on the top floor to offer guests spectacular views of the beautiful scenery. Another masterful touch can be found in the design of the bedrooms which are extremely spacious and boast all the comforts you need to make your stay at The Ben Doran as tranquil and relaxing as possible.

We read some of the reviews before our 4 day break, but foolishly decided that it couldn't be that bad! How wrong we were. We were initially put into room 20, arriving after driving for 12 hours and over 500 miles. The carpet was stained, the curtains has been burgundy but were so faded they were streak with pale pink and several of the curtain rings were missing. All furniture was very old and cheap looking The small bathroom had a tap that didn't work fully. The room was not dire. When we talked to the receptionist, they confessed this was one of the better rooms, I was ready to leave.

Do not stay at this hotel!!!!!... the staff are rude!! Wifi does not work, very old fashioned decor and not clean in the slightest. Food is disgusting and very over priced for the slop we got served. Waiter was constantly on his phone, no background music. Drinks are very expensive also. The tv signal is is absolutely shocking.and to top it off there was no running hot water. Just avoid!!!
Friendly and welcoming staff, great breakfast.

The room was cosy and the bed comfortable, staff were all very friendly, welcoming and attentive. The decor inside the hotel is quite charming with a few lounge areas to relax in. I found the upstairs bar area to be very relaxing with a nice view over the forest to the Crianlarich hills. Breakfast was great value and plenty of choice of items. Location convenient for many walks and travel to other areas via coach or train. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel is located in a very quiet area, plenty of nature around and a few minute walk to the train station. Great for walks in nature, there are also a few shops and restaurants nearby. The hotel is nice and cosy, very nice staff.
Avoid! Please take note if you are thinking about booking here!

At any cost - avoid this place! Ignore the fake positive reviews! We had paid for 4 nights in advance (unfortunately) and left after a few hours of checking in as it was the most disgusting place we had ever been in. The surroundings are beautiful, it is such a shame that this place is so horrid. This is the only positive - lovely woodland and mountains. We checked in and the decor was very old and shabby and the room smelt musty. There were dirty cups on the side. Then we noticed a blood stain on the bed. We went to reception and asked if they would get us some clean bedding. They apologised and swapped our rooms instead. The next room had the same musty smell , but also a smell of cigarettes and toilet. There were cigarette butts everywhere outside of the window. Dust everywhere. The same dirty cups. Dead insects. Dirt in the bath. Grotty walls and floors. Stains up the walls that looked like dried blood again or a dark coffee. And something in the toilet ...🤮 (I have a photo of this but haven't uploaded as it's disgusting) We then heard loud music being played and tons of shouting ... which (upon investigation) turned out to be the staff walking around with a speaker. The music and shouting was so loud that we couldn't hear the TV in the room (which had about 3 working channels). We discussed staying one night and leaving. Somebody tried our door handle and then ran off - we didn't feel safe to leave our belongings in the room. We were both feeling really itchy from being in the room at this point (we weren't there long and have bites on our skin!). We had another conversation and decided that we could not stay overnight and would rather risk sleeping in the car if we couldn't find elsewhere. We checked out and the receptionist said he understood why (it's obvious they get this often). We emailed the hotel but yet to have a response, they don't care. Please do not give this hotel a chance, you will regret it!!! If there's one positive out of our bad experience, it's that you might read this review and not go! It's not worth a penny of your hard earn money. The place needs to be condemned
