The hotel is in a quiet part of town and just a short walk from the harbour. The food is top notch and a good price. The staff are always keen to help and there was no problem getting a packed lunch for the following day.

Lovely place to stay. On our tour, looking for different places this came up. Well worth the trip. Our room was really comfortable, although the pillows were a bit hard for me but that's personal choice. Not a full view of the loch but a side view from the window was enough to see the lights from the town -... More

Who'd have thought a midweek golfing trip to the beautiful Kintyre peninsula would unearth this gem of a hotel. Peerless location right on the sunniest spot overlooking Campbeltown Loch, and the dinner was out of this world. The chowder is gorgeous. Service excellent too. A wee stunner!

How lovely! So many superlatives – you are making us embarrassed! We have a number of rooms looking out over that lovely view, but the room you mention has a slightly secluded table and chairs, where you can enjoy the view with your aperitif. We are delighted you enjoyed the food and service and, in addition, as a guest of... More

This is a great hotel, the owners are really friendly, and even Beanie the dog is welcoming, with expectations of a good walk. The food was all locally sourced, and we all enjoyed our meals, the wine list is very good and evenly priced. The views over the Loch from the restaurant are fantastic, watching the sun set as we...

This is an elegant 1884 brownstone mansion, built by a whisky distiller on the outskirts of Campbeltown, and overlooking beautiful Campbeltown Loch. (A plug for the Kintyre area – remote, yes, but not half as wild and rugged as we imagined) The feel of the hotel is that of a Scottish country house, the atmosphere warm, the rooms large-scale and...

My companion and I dropped in here for dinner a while back. This hotel is in a very attractive house overlooking the Loch - splendid position - and there was plenty of parking places up a steep driveway. From then on, it was a little bit odd. We were welcomed and the words were appropriate but we both felt we... More

I am glad you feel the house is attractive, but very surprised you felt you could possibly be 'on trial'? Obviously we are used to welcoming new guests every evening, so we can only think there must have been some distraction just prior to your arrival, so please don't take it personally! After offering you a seat in the lounge,... More

We went for a short break and thought the staff were extremely helpful and efficient. The room was very comfortable and our dog was welcomed and felt at home which made us so much more relaxed.

We are grateful for this lovely review, and happy that both you and your dog felt at home. This is our aim, and the relaxed atmosphere is designed to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible.

Have just returned from an overnight stay B&B at this hotel and was pleasantly surprised at the value for money.
