Had a pub meal here a couple of weeks ago whilst staying at a camp site up the road. Would have liked to have had an evening meal here but no taxi was available and it was an hour's walk each way. I had salmon salad and my husband had a steak both of which were delicious. You get a... More

Had dinner in the bar here when staying near Glencoe. The location is simply exquisite ... right on the loch and we could go for a stroll while our dinner was prepared. The staff were also very nice and friendly. Food was ok, which would not have been a problem were it not overpriced for what it is. The vegetarian... More

Had a top class meal here while staying in Glencoe. Beautiful setting, friendly service and delicious, well cooked food. Had juicy scallops followed by perfectly cooked venison. Portions are on the large side but managed a pudding too! Highly recommended.

Lovely spot. Nice decor with magnificent views. Friendly staff. Steak pie was't ordinary and could have done with more cooking. The veg were on the raw side, one more minute would have won me over. The mange tout hadn't seen any hot water. Lol. There was plenty of the filling but a scant topping. This brings me to my pet... More

This is the second occasion we have stayed which is unlike us. This is a beautiful hotel that you'll not want to tell any-one about. We stayed in a Captain's Room with a balcony and and a view of the loch and surrounding hills. It was the hottest week of the year and like being abroad. The room s are... More

The setting for dinner is stunning: you can have an amazing view on the loch from any table (either restaurant or bar)!! Wonderful! We went twice for dinner and had chicken broth, smoked haddock chowder, salmon, sea bass fillet, mussels. Overall great food, a bit on the greasy side but very well cooked, original and very balance-tasting. Service is fast... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at end of July. What a spectacular location! Beautiful clean room with amazing view. No balcony but bar terrace is a lovely place to enjoy good food and "drink" in that view. Was a bit dismayed to see the bar terrace right under our bedroom window but it is very early doors for eating and... More

In 2002, my wife and I enjoyed a delicious meal with friends at the old Holly Tree Hotel on the shores of Loch Linnhe in Kentallen, Appin, Scotland---so when we decided to ride our Harley through the Highlands we booked into the establishment as it is today. Wow! In 2007, the hotel was enlarged and upgraded, and the restaurant expanded---providing... More
