What a stunning place to spend a few nights away. Jennifer and Allistair are so welcoming and make you feel at home. The rooms are very comfy and have great views across the Loch. Breakfast is fantastic. We will be back next January.

The quality of decor and splendor in the place has to be seen to be appreciated. The view across Loch Fyne to Invevaray are unbeatable as can be seen in the panorama attached. Full Scottish in the quietest dining room with just a hint of soothing background music is a joy.

We had a weekend here on a very wet and windy weekend, but the warmth of the welcome by Jennifer and Allistair more than made up for it. Like other reviews say it's a lot more than the material items, comprehensive as they are; it's how special you are made to feel whilst you are here. Pouring with rain outside?... More

fantastic hotel in a truly superb spot. Stayed here when cycling LEJOG and can't rate the experience highly enough. The owner even drove us to the pub and picked us up when we were ready to come back. not thats more than good service. The hotel was lovely and clean, breakfast amazing too :-)))
