Our stay was for one night. The hotel is a great example of a 19th century country house 'castle'. There are good short walks in the gardens and down to the sea shore, with an amazing thicket of blue hydrangeas on the way. The hotel is convenient for the Kennacraig ferry terminal for Islay, a short drive away. Our room... More

My husband, 4 month old baby and I took our first holiday to Scotland and since our baby's birth. Upon arriving to Stonefield they had already prepared a crib (pack n play) in our well appointed room that had a lovely view of the loch. The aesthetics of the hotel were very attractive and consistent with the castle's history as... More

We did a castle tour for 7 days and had to stay 2 nights in this "Hotel". I found the personal friendly and the service OK. The view from the Restaurant is really awesome and the food was good. The only thing where I feel "ripped off" is the room quality. I'm quite shure they have nice rooms in the... More

For anyone that is looking for relaxation and to literally get away from it all, book up now for this wonderful hotel. My girlfriend and I came to Stonefield Castle for a 2 night break after a really difficult and busy year or 2. It just couldn't have ticked anymore boxes. On the approach to the hotel, you drive up... More

I booked and emailed to ask for a room within the main castle but we were unable to be accommodated due to the castle being fully booked, although it never felt too busy over the weekend. The room in the extended wing was like a tired motel room at the side of the motorway, you could hear your neighbours talking... More

just returned from an excellent overnight stay at Stonefield Castle . Just 5 minutes from Tarbert Loch Fyne. A warm welcome and tour of the hotel. Nice bedroom overlooking the Loch, worth the little extra room rate. Well stocked bar for all whiskey fans. Wonderful restaurant with views over the Loch and served first class food both in the evening... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stonefield Castle Hotel is an outstanding example of Scottish baronial architecture. Built in 1837, the Castle stands high on the famous Kintyre peninsula, commanding spectacular panoramic views over Loch Fyne. In keeping with its unique location and character, many of the original period furnishings have been retained to complement the timeless ambience that is Stonefield Castle. Guests can relax in the traditional elegance of wood panelled lounges with fine corniced ceilings, unwind on leisurely walks through the sixty acres of woodland grounds, or simply enjoy a leisurely pace of life far removed from the stress of city living. ... more   less
