Our room had fantastic views over Loch Fyne and Inveraray. The room itself is recently renovated with every aspect done to a high standard. The hosts are welcoming and the breakfast was excellent. My only complaint is we should have stayed longer than one night. Bed comfort first class.

Great ambience, service and breakfast. This lovely accommodation overlooks Loch Fyfe- in the Argyll area. We had a lovely view from our room across to Inveraray Castle. Jen and Alistair were great hosts and welcomed us and showed us around their beautiful property. We were able to relax in the lounge room that had majestic water and garden views. Wi... More

We spent two nights at Thistle House on our way north to holiday in Scotland. Very gad that we did. All about Thistle House is excellent. Spotless comfortable rooms with scenic views. Highly recommended. The accommodation is first class. Wonderful hosts made us feel right at home. Good local eating places.

Enjoyed our stay for 4 days. The house is nice, our room is spotless, very clean with simple decorations and so quiet and relaxing. Breakfast is very good. And the owners are very nice and friendly. We were in a family room on our first night then moved to a double room facing the loch which is very nice and... More

Beautiful house in a stunning location on Loch Fyne. The hosts, Jennifer and Alastair were very friendly and helpful. The room was beautifully appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was amongst the best I have ever had. Scrambled eggs and locally smoked salmon is highly recommended! All in all a lovely stay. Would certainly recommend it and we hope to be back... More

The guest house is located in front of a lake, almost in front of Inveraray castle (on the other side of the lake). The rooms are very well furbished, original, relatively elegant and comfortable, with a good bed. They have a quiet and cosy atmosphere. The bathrooms are small, but nice and modern, with a small shower. All rooms have... More

5 of us stayed here. My husband, myself, brother-in-law, sister-in-law and their son stayed. I can't rate this play highly enough. It was one of the nicest B & Bs we have stayed in. Clean, tidy and nice owners. Quiet as well.

I had a really fantastic time staying in this guesthouse in November as I needed a really good rest and wanted some luxury! My husband and I arrived at 4pm on the Friday to be greeted very warmly by the owners, who were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely bedroom with an ensuite bedroom. The view of Loch... More
