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

Having just returned from at nights stay here, I have to say it's one of the nicest guest houses I've stayed in. Room was clean, cosy and warm with a beautiful view over the loch. Alistair and Jennifer are the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was delicious, with a great menu to chose from (I personally... 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

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.

Booked this place after reading the reviews on trip advisor and wasn't disappointed! The rooms are wonderful and the en suite, while small, was immaculate and well appointed. We had great views of the loch as well. Breakfast is hearty and the selection is fantastic. Really excellent Finally this place has a wonderful sitting room where you can play cards,... More

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

We had a very nice overnight stay at the thistle on the 31/October Maggie and I were made to feel very welcome. The house is in fantastic condition and has a warm friendly vibe. The rooms you couldn't ask for better. Breakfast was really good and the location and view across the loch is one of the best. A big... More
