Amazing hosts, really friendly and helpful. Beautiful accommodation set in beautiful scenery. Great price, great place to go to relax and unwind. Great choices of food for breakfast cooked to perfection. Rooms were stunning, great sleep! Would go back in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!

We recently had a 3 night stay at Thistle House at the end of November. The house was easy to find at night as it's well lit up and there is parking space directly outside. We were warmly welcomed by Alastair who showed us the lounge, breakfast room and then our own room. The room was a good size, very... More

My partner and I booked a night away in this hotel after reading some of the great reviews on tripadvisor. We were not dissapointed with our choice. The hotel has some signs which are well lit and clearly visible from the road, which is handy as a lot of these B&B type places can be a nightmare to find, this... More

We stayed at Thistle House Guest House for one night in October and couldn't recommend it more. The rooms were beautifully and tastefully decorated, and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the service was top class. We could pick from a number of DVDs to watch in our room and Alastair brought it to us right... More

Beautiful house in a great location overlooking Loch Fyne, very friendly hosts and comfortable room with everything you could need. Lovely breakfast, vegetarian Scottish breakfast also very good. Communal lounge with open fire was cozy and inviting.

We stayed for one night, on the top floor of the house with a lovely view across Loch Fyne to Inverary Castle. It was all extremely comfortable although I would have loved access to a bath. Bed, linens and furnishings were of a high standard and the whole house has a gracious air of a much loved Victorian family home.... More

A beautiful guest house in an equally as beautiful setting on Loch Fyne. Decorated and furnished to a high standard, we had a very comfortable stay here. Breakfast was varied and plentiful and Jenifer and Alistair couldn't do enough for us to ensure our stay was anything but perfect.

From the outside a beautifull Victorian grand house, with simply stunning views across Loch Fyne towards Inverary. The owners make you feel very welcome and are easy to talk too. Breakfast was nothing short of perfection (And i can be fussy). I would recommend Thistle. Its all you want and need from a B&B that i would class as a... More

Everything about Thistle House Guest House is DELIGHTFUL! Host Jennifer was so friendly and very understanding when we arrived very late on the night we had booked. The room was really nicely appointed, very clean and the whole place is very well maintained. The old world charm of the B&B was so lovely - felt extra special. Breakfast was super... More

We had a very friendly and professional welcome to this very comfortable B&B which can boast beautiful views across Loch Fyne, though right on the A815. We were offered a fabulous breakfast and had a very cosy room
