Since I needed to work remote on... More

The Horseshoe Inn in Kilmichael, what can I say! My Mother has been hospitalised with dementia in Lochkilphead, being here by myself, the sadness of seeing my mother in the hospital,the solitude I felt during my stay was made more tollerable by the hospitality and the compassion shown by Ian and his family, of all the places in the world...

First of all, I have to say that I haven't eaten, drank or stayed in the Horseshoe Inn - so why am I reviewing it you may ask? Well, we did try to eat there one evening recently, but found that for some reason we had become completely invisible to (a lady I now believe to be) the owner. She... More

We expected more from this small Inn. In the first place we struggled to find it! The address and directions were unclear and we thought it was within the town. Although we had a private bathroom, it was not en-suite, with the bathroom right at the top of the stairs - a bit uncomfortable. The doors are extremely noisy to... More

This is a small Inn, several miles outside Lochgilphead. The rooms are small but clean and cosy, although you could believe you are drunk when walking in them as the floors slant in different directions. There is a reasonable TV reception and Wifi. The staff are friendly and there are two bars to choose from. The Menu is limited, but... More

Travelled to the Horsehoe Inn this weekend with friends and had a blast. Lovely homely, friendly pub with roaring fire. Staff and locals very welcoming. Meals and banter were great. Breakfast was brilliant, just the thing to set you on your way. Thanks to Ian and Roseanne for their hospitallity. Will definately be back.
