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. Given the modern day catastrophes we are all witnessing: mystery plane crashes and disappearances, Ebola, Middle East and African conflicts, the Jeremy Clarkson BBC saga, Zayn Malik leaving One Direction, Man City not being able to win...

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

Overnight stay 29 March 2015. Hotel set on the loch craignish banks at Ardfern with stunning views even on a wet and windy day. The Skye suite commands the best view. Room spacious, comfortable, clean. Loved the huge corner bath especially after a day walking the Crinnan canal, from Cairnbaan, which is a 25 minute drive away. Relaxed in the... More

A pleasant hotel in Ardfern, far enough from main road so no disturbances. The reception was quiet, albeit we visited during winter so understandable. The staff were polite and friendly and the rooms were of a good standard. Most hotels do not allow you dogs, or have specific rooms for dogs to be allowed (which are often sub-standard compared to...

My husband and I had a three day short break at The Galley of Lorne Inn and loved it. The setting is beautiful as is the building itself, I particularly liked the obviously, original, historic bar building. The room was very comfortable and immaculately clean. Staying three nights gave us ample opportunity to work our way through the menu and... More

Our second visit to this lovely hotel and every bit as good as the first. We were in the Skye Suite this time. Lovely room and great view of the loch. All very comfortable. The food is first class, don't expect "nouvelle" cuisine though as portions were very generous. Everything we ate was delicious but would particularly recommend the pate... More
