Had a wonderful meal here! Excellent service, food really tasty and overall a really good experience! To make it even better we were given a private room as there was 8 of us plus a dog! There was also a rainbow over the bay to top off the evening!

My wife had left her toothbrush at home and at 7 oclock voila a brand new one appears courtesy of Irene (bar staff,among other multitasking) ,just brilliant. Food was wholesome ,tasty,reasonably priced and... More

My wife and I, together with a friend in the village, decided to treat ourselves to a light lunch today. The pub's decor has recently been renewed and the views up the West Kyle of Bute remain absolutely world beating. The welcome we received from the staff was great and the service was attentive. The food was delicious and great... More

Visited the Kames hotel on Thursday 16th April 2015 for dinner with my family. The service was not the best, hardly a smile from the 2 staff on duty, no table service avail so you are up and down to the bar to order. Bacon cheeseburger was tasteless and the batter on the fish was not quite right. Ordered sticky... More

Evelyn - first of all can I say how very sorry I am that your experience with us was not a positive one. As you can probably gather from the majority of our reviews, we are an establishment with a great track record for quality of food and good customer service. Your experience was not one that would normally happen... More

Great room with great views, fantastic food and very friendly staff. Would definitely book to stay... More

We found our stay to be brilliant from the minute we walked in to the minute we left. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. We had views of the landscaped gardens from the very large window. The cost was well worth it. Good friendly staff couldnt do enough for you. Happy atmosphere in the bar. Would highly recommend a... More

Everything about this place is great. staff, food and bar are brilliant and the views spectacular. The perfect retreat yet still with an atmosphere that is beyond comparison.

We visited this hotel to eat lunch twice at the end of 2014. Both times we were met with warm and helpful welcomes and ate good food from a great menu. The menu had excellent specials with the use of local ingredients and also a good light bites/lunch snacks menu. The beer was good and they were both child and... More

Fantastic night at the Kames Hotel - staff were excellent, couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Dinner and breakfast were both top notch. Room had magnificent view and was terrific value for money. Only disappointment was we were only there for one night but will definitely be back.
