Great place to stay while driving to Skye. Cannot beat the price! Not much in the area. Small gas station store for basics a short walk and an old fashioned grocery store and butcher a quick drive away. Oban has a big grocery store, restaurants, hospital and such but is about a 20min drive away. We ate at the restaurant... More

A charming family hotel in a green spot. The rooms are simple and bit small but the service is awesome. Great choice of local food at the restaurant. Full breakfast as very good with lot's of choices as well.

Overall, very friendly - good food and clean. Rooms are small but they are clean and you have access to a lounge, papers and a bar. Good place to stop before going further North. Very fluffy white bath towels which are great after a shower!

The hotel staff are very nice people, very helpful and friendly. The location is great, near Oban, and there is a nice garden. The breakfast is good and the dinner menu was varied with delicious food.

Lovely family owned hotel. I've seen some complaints about smallish room and spotty wifi but I generally don't spend my vacations in my room on my computer so it wasn't an issue for. Food was exceptional btw

very nice staff, friendly and supportive, Nice breakfast, dinner served in room. Bar needs some refurbishment. Overall it's nice but bit expensive. Beds should have actual kings or double , not twin beds joined together.

Our 3rd stay here. Love it. Peaceful, clean rooms, lovely food and fabulous friendly service. Well worth a stay for any occasion 😀. Countryside is stunning here and handy for visiting oban and all the surrounding attractions.

Good service, the room was very comfortable although noise could be heard in neighbouring rooms from the bathroom, could do with better insulation. Very good restaurant. Loved the smoked trout. Good location and very helpful friendly staff. Very good value, would stay again when next in the area.

We booked last minute and unlike many other Inns, B&B's and hotels, they did not gauge! Their rates were their norm and the service exceptional. Beautiful people and environment! Highly recommend this space. They are still updating the common areas, but they appropriately, in my opinion, updated the rooms first. Very comfortable and charming!

This was a return visit. It's a skill to maintain high standards, but this family-owned hotel pulls it off with its consistently warm welcome and excellent service. The problem with Brander Lodge is its delicious menu; the kind that makes you want to try everything, and then come back to sample more. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere is the perfect... More
