Beautiful,really beautiful. Loved the food, the room ( Gigha Suite ) and the attention to detail. Splendid views from the dining room. Already looking forward to a return visit. Andrew and his hardworking staff really look after you.

Meant to leave this review last month, so apologies to Andrew and his team for the delay! We had only booked for 1 night but when offered the chance to stay for a second night we jumped at it - it's a lovely hotel with cosy rooms, great pub and best of all FANTASTIC food!! Everyone was friendly, helpful and... More

We were very well looked after by Andrew and his staff. The room was spotless, warm and very comfortable with an ensuite with huge corner bath. The views from the hotel are stunning. On both nights the food was of a very high quality - the main menu was fairly limited but on each night there were several specials. This... More

2nd visit just as fabulous as last year's stay. Brilliant weather this time. In Arran Suite and view over the loch is amazing. Food and service equally good. Thanks to Sarah and Aga for great customer service.

My husband and I got married on the Old Pier at Craignish last week - just the two of us, the registrar plus a photographer and a hairdresser/make-up artist as witnesses. For our wedding meal, we had booked a table at the Galley of Lorne Inn, and we're so glad that we did. We had a lovely table to enjoy... More

I recently stayed here. Hotel is nice with good views and tasty food. Owner Andrew was very pleasant and approachable, however woman who showed us to our room had a bad attitude. Also when checking out, other female owner was cheeky and had poor customer service skills.

Dear Greg, I must admit that I have been deliberating for quite a few days whether (and how) to respond to your review.

Four of us stayed at the B&B in March 2015 for 2 nights. Location: The B&B is in the middle of nowhere. Before we arrived, we spent the day in Oban and drove 35 minutes south to Ardfern. It is very picturesque and a beautiful drive. Another day we got the bus to Lochgilphead and hired bikes. I would recommend... More
