If you’re looking for en-suite, the height of luxury and all mod cons (though you can get free wi-fi), don’t bother! This is a family run hotel/pub which is very much a part of the community. So if part of your holiday enjoyment is to see how locals live and interact with them, you can enjoy yourself. For me, far... More

The Manager of the Hotel's reputation proceeded him and bets were placed to see if we could make him smile. We failed in a big way. I have never met such a surly Landlord. He told us that he was fully booked in the restaurant then grudgingly told us we could have a table. You ordered at the bar and... More

You get a sense of good,honest, hardworking folk and a close-knit community when you arrive at the Lochaline Hotel. Interestingly, we found out later that 30 St Kildans were evacuated in 1930 to Lochaline, Movern in 1930, whose descendants could account for the very large & fantastic piece of haddock in batter, friendly camaraderie in the bar & warm hospitality...

We had told Sappy we would be later arriving. No worries. 2 rooms held for us. Free wifi. Heat in rooms available. View of loch from front rooms very nice. Very close to ferry. Very good breakfast. Good service from Sally. Thanks!

The hotel advertises itself on 2 signs as you enter the village. It has a car park and a friendly sign above the door saying "failte / welcome". The reality is not very welcoming at all! We entered the bar area which was fairly upside down and tins of paint lying around. No staff so we shouted out and eventually... More

Not much can I say about the Lochaline Hotel; other than its bar being among the finest in the West Highlands of Scotland! Great Host (Charles), great drink/s, great locals, great strangers, You will feel welcome. Cheers.

This is quite remote so the choice of eateries is not huge; we initially thought we'd made a mistake but the meal was good (we just visited for dinner, not overnight). Take no notice of the lack of welcome in the past-its-sell-by public bar. Order your meal - specials board and menu - and you'll be taken into the dining... More

As a mature couple on a cycling honeymoon to Scotland, we stayed in 15 different places in August 2104. This was our fourteenth stop and one of the most disappointing. There is a wonderful view of the loch from the bedroom window but the whole feel of the place is from years ago. The bar is not especially welcoming so... More

Knew it was going to be 'unusual' when we booked at none of the rooms were ensuite. Even so I was not prepared for quite how dated the accomodation is - and the shower rooms were definately below par. Nevertheless, we got a friendly welcome and breakfast was good - again with friendly service. It is a stunning location but... More

A lovely traditional "old fashioned" hotel, lots of personal attention, friendly locals & great value. A wonderful remote location and inspiring views over the Isle of Mull. The food was fresh and quality, with good variety considering that it is a small hotel.
