This was the first hotel we booked for our two week trip to Scotland for one reason: ROOM FIVE! I had read so many great things about this B&B and this room in particular I wanted to ensure we could get a booking before we confirmed the rest of our itinerary. Let me tel you... it was SO worth it!!!... More

Enjoyed two nigths at Francis' & Colin's place! Very nice, warmly welcomed (with a sip of sherry...) so friendly and helpful host! It was no problem after deciding to stay for another night - we just had to change the room! Well - the staff did it for us! Both rooms were lovely, traditional decorated and absolutely clean! Breakfast was... More

We had a front room with a view of the bay and comfy chairs to sit in a watch enjoy the ships passing and the activity on the promenade. Breakfast was wonderful! How can you not like a place that serves oatmeal with a side of whiskey and cream? Delish! The location was good with a short walk into town... More

We stumbled upon this little gem while on an impromptu getaway. Beautiful room and view with wonderful attention to detail. France and Colin were exuberant and attentive hosts greeting us with whiskey and wine. Assisted with dinner recommendation and reservation and arranged for take away breakfast to accommodate an early morning ferry. Thank you for a wonderful memory!

We were welcomed by very friendly hosts, who kindly helped us find a very nice restaurant for the evening. We also appreciated the welcome drink. The room was very comfortable and breakfast excellent. This is perfect location for exploring the area and we really enjoyed our stay at the Kilchrenan House.

We arrived at the guest house, to be welcomed by colin who offered us a small sherry/whiskey. We thought this is the place for us! Our room was on the first floor I think it was room 14 ? It's not the largest room I have stayed in but was clean, had everything we required. (Tea, coffee & lovely selection... More

I loved everything about this beautiful old building and lovely couple running it! Colin is quite the host and Frances and her staff run an awesome dining room & can whip up a wicked full Scotch breakfast! YUM! However, our room (#8) could use a major updating. The bathroom floor was soft and squishy! I felt I might fall thorough... More

Arriving at the address we notice ample parking at front , side and back of property which was great! How ever if there is no spaces for what ever reason there is free road side parking just a little further up the road. On approaching the front door there was a lovely welcoming porch area with fresh flowers a seat... More

From the initial phone call to make the booking, the friendly atmosphere of this place was evident. Frances apologised that the only room left had no sea view but as we only needed a bed for the night, it wasn't an issue for us. Lovely comfy king sized bed and a fabulous breakfast for a very reasonable cost. I'm sure... More
