We have always enjoyed going to this hotel to eat in the bar in the evening. The food is always excellent and the bright room towards reception provides a superb place to eat and enjoy remarkable views over the Kyles of Bute. Highly Recommend.

Last minute decision to stay at the Kames Hotel which proved to be a great decision. On arriving at the hotel we received a friendly greeting. Our room was perfect and the view was fantastic! If you like to get away from everything to enjoy tranquility and beautiful scenery then you will appreciate staying here. The food is great, the... More

We just had lunch in the bar which was pleasantly furnished and had a great view overlooking the loch. Excellent light lunch of scallops in a creamy sauce which was good value and very pleasant service.

With a fantastic view overlooking the loch and Isle of Bute, our room was large and bright with an ensuite shower and all the usual trimmings. Furnishings are luxurious, the bed was extremely comfortable and we felt at home immediately. The bar area is relaxing and the locals friendly. An extensive choice of food is on offer, both on the...

We walked up with the dogs from our hotel in Tighnabruaich to have dinner. Everyone including the dogs was given a warm welcome. The locals were friendly and the food hearty. Views from the bar across the water were lovely as the sun went down. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. They also have outside seating... More

This hotel provides a great all round package. The rooms are good, the location is fantastic and the steak and ale pie is the best you will get anywhere. Once you have had a stroll on the beach relax with real ales in the bar (or outside if it is warm enough) and choose from the menu which always has... More

(the bar) Great location with nice views over the water. A little cold in the bar area but dog friendly so suited us. We had a couple of nice lunches from the bar menu. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

We visited the Kames Hotel on a groupon deal, having never been to Scotland before. After driving 8 hours to get there, we couldn't have been happier with the comfortable room, hot shower, friendly service, and delicious food! Portions are impressive, prices are decent, and everyone was amazingly friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking space too! Would definitely come back... More

The Kames Hotel is lovely. Big old fashioned type of property that has been done up in a nice style. We had a superior room, right at the top of the building that had the most wonderful views. We have two dogs and they were definitely made welcome by the staff and guests. The dogs are welcome in the guest... More

We Were pleased with a good warm welcome at this scenic hotel after a fairly gruelling drive there, which did seem to take forever!! The room we had was small, unfortunately I had not thought to ask for a loch view when booking as had every one else!!! Note to self next time!, and we will be back! Very comfortable... More
