My wife and I ate here for dinner and it was excellent! We had a table with a beautiful view of the water and this is the first restaurant I've been to in Scotland that had a full pitcher if water waiting for us at the table. We had fried Brie, salmon and pumpkin ravioli - all were very well... More

Had a family lunch here today. The food was what I would term, good bar food. Good portions and fair price. Clean and neat, spacious and unhurried. I did however feel that the service was just lacking the touch that would have made it brilliant - a little slow towards the end of the meal and hard to try and... More

Stayed 2 nights to celebrate a special birthday and we were not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. We ate in the bar and in the main restaurant and found the quality and quantity to our liking. If I was to find fault it was with the breakfast which arrived very quickly after ordering and suggested it... More

Summary: The hotel is converted from the old train station of Kentallen which the owners have maintained the theme and history of the station while having a modern, updated and current hotel at the same time. The hotel offers spacious modern rooms with stunning views and a swimming pool. The hotel is about 5 minute drive from Glencoe, 25-30 minute... More

I've never understood who decided a family room is only for 2 adults and 2 children. Our family has 2 adults and 3 children. As a result like almost always we had to book 2 rooms at the holly tree. That's the first negative but not their fault. The rooms were both excellent, as were the facilities and the food.... More

Very updated and current, the hotel was better than expected. The pool and sauna are nice plusses and this added to the experience. From your room you can look across the firth, or you can walk around the grounds. The only misgiving was the fish in the restaurant wasn't close to what I expected…and would seem to be overrated. I... More

Very good quality hotel, certainly at the top end of what you would expect from a 3 star hotel. We stayed in a Captains Room, which had a small balcony overlooking the loch towards the Ardnamurchan peninsula but the view across the loch was simply breathtaking. The room itself was rather basic, but spacious, clean and comfortable. There were some... More
