4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A nice friendly hotel in a good location. Comfortable bed in pleasant bedroom. Bathroom quite small but adequate although toilet flush and seat in need of maintenance. Had a meal in the bar and this was excellent. The breakfast was also first class. Well looked after from arrival to departure. An ideal stopover when touring this area.

We booked a night's stay for four of us. Our friends booked a twin bedded room. It was a beautiful room with a view over the water. It was bright and spacious. We were given a room on the top floor. Unfortunately it had a low angled ceiling which made it difficult to get in and out of the far... More

Fabulous stay in this lovely hotel. Our room had the best views we have ever had from a hotel overlooking the Kyles of Bute. The food was fantastic, live band on the Saturday night was great and Shelley and Pat who own the hotel made us very welcome and extremely comfortable. Will definitely return.

We had a wonderful time and great food and the prices, service, and speed were fabulous considering 12 of us descended on the already busy pub area without warning. My top tip is to always take a look at the specials board, as there are usually a wonderful selection of local ingredients to choose from.

I stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed my stay. It's a nice small hotel which has nice decor and rooms. We were in the top room with the sloping roof but it wasn't an issue. Breakfast was very good with a big selection of food. Nice location with good view over the Kyles of Bute.

This hotel has a reputation for its restaurant and I'll certainly echo that - our evening dinner was certainly good and the staff very friendly. Breakfast was however a slow and drawn-out affair, waiting 25minutes just for toast. The bar was busy and looked well stocked however we avoided it in favour of sitting by the loch-side. The locality is... More

We found this pub while staying at Portavadie marina. It was hard to find somewhere open in the evening but so glad we found this pub. The food is very very good, home cooked & fresh. The views are lovely If we go back to the same area we will look to stay there too.

Had a great stay here recently. The room was beautiful with a great sea view. The staff are excellent, very friendly and welcoming. The food was beautiful, great seafood in particular. The hotel is very popular with locals and visitors alike and there is a really good atmosphere in the bar/restaurant. Would highly recommend a short stay here or even... More

Great location on the shore of the Loch. The hotel seems central to village life with locals and visitors. It was very busy when we were there in July but despite a full restaurant and bar, the team made sure were were fed
