stayed on impulse and how lucky were we. spotless and I do mean spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, lovely breakfast, friendly hosts, need I say more? glorious view across the loch, just one problem, if you arrive late finding somewhere to eat can be difficult.

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 :-)))

My wife and I had a great stay. The room and en suite bathroom were spotless and very nicely decorated - felt very special. There is a wonderfully cosy sitting room with a lit fireplace; lovely to sit in with a glass of wine and game of cards. The hosts could not have been more helpful.

The whole house is spotless and so comfortable! Friendly hosts. Lovely large beds, plenty of space and gorgeous hot showers. The guest lounge with fire-place is lovely to relax in and plan the next day or to catch up with emails. The breakfasts were stunning and cooked to order. Really appreciated the lovely fresh fruit salad, yoghurt and croissants too.... More

This B&B was absolutely fabulous, the location and views were stunning and only a 20 min drive from Inveraray, where you can find the BEST Indian Restaurant ever :) The house was immaculate throughout and the rooms were so beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The welcome was very nice with coffee/Tea upon arrival and beautiful shortbread. The breakfast likewise was... More

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The house is stunning with beautifully decorated rooms (ours had a view towards the loch). We also enjoyed the separate lounge area with fireplace for the guests, which is excellent for reading a book, watching the garden or loch. Jenifer and Allistair did their utmost to make our stay as comfortable as possible.... More

During our summer tour of the UK this short stay was one of the best. The house looked amazing surrounded by well attended and attractive gardens boasting superlative views of the loch. Our host was most welcoming and attentive. The family room was delightful, tastefully decorated and well appointed, offering a separate section for our son. Breakfast was amazing, generous... More

Staying at Thistle House was a perfect experience. The guest house was very clean and comfortable, the rooms were beautifully decorated and the host was attentive and welcoming. The house is on the edge of a small village, directly next to a loch, so we were able to eat our breakfast looking out onto the loch and at Inveraray castle.... More

One of the nicest B&B's that I've stayed at in Scotland (which have been many). Views were outstanding with Inveraray Castle directly across the loch. Stayed in the Family room, which was at the top/back of the house, so very quite. Rooms and host were excellent. Oh, and the breakfasts were outstanding with homemade jellies, etc.
