Super room with a view of the bay - great bathroom - super big bath and the first time I have had a telescope to take in the view! Great base to tour Bute and Cowal area of Argyll - Local attractions include... More

I stumbled upon this little sweetie of a hotel, and was rewarded with a second story room overlooking the Kyles of Bute. First, a visit to their saloon proved excellent fun and a 'wee dram' was consumed. Then, a walk down to the water itself, a little exercise before an excellent fish supper. The staff was very accommodating; one fellow... More

Stayed on Loch Fyne a few miles away on numerous occasions in the past and invariably visit the Kames several times during any stay. Location ioverlooking the Kyles is beautiful, lovely old bar,service and atmosphere good but in my opinion, food in bar is on the pricey side now. Fish, chips and peas good but not exceptionall and at just... More

Decided to spend my birthday away from Glasgow and my brother had told me about Kames on "Scotland's Secret Coast". Stayed away from the Tighnabruich Hotel as the reviews were not particularly positive but the Kames Hotel is a little cracker. Very pretty whitewashed exterior, friendly and helpful staff and fish & chips to write home about - or write... More

This was our first visit to Tighnabruaich - a stunningly beautiful place across from the Isle of Bute. We were here for my brother's wedding, and the reception was held at the hotel. The service was absolutely first rate. The Scottish hospitality was unrivalled! My parents stayed in a beautiful room on the second floor with a grand view of... More

Booked this hotel as a last minute stop off on the way home from Skye. It was a perfect end to our Autumn holiday. We booked a standard room over the phone and were delighted to be upgraded when we checked in. Room 4 is spacious and has fantastic views over the Kyles of Bute. We ate dinner in the... More

The Kames Hotel is very welcoming and a good place to feed a family. We ate in the room off the bar with good views. The fish & chips were delicious. Even when the staff are busy they are always polite and helpful. Overall it's good value. Recommended.
