I stayed here last year when working in the area - stayed for a weekend. The staff were very friendly, the hotel overlooks the beautiful harbour and my overall stay very pleasant. The only problem I had was I picked up food positioning whilst in the area, which made the trip home less than nice! Of an evening the bar... More

We were staying in the area and fortunately choose this hotel to have our Christmas dinner out. What a great choice and value for money it was. Food was amazing and fantastic value at the price. Staff were so friendly and attentive. Would definitely go back if we are in the area.

Stayed during the week and it was lovely. Room had all your basic needs but spacious with a very luxury bathroom mirror- perfect for putting make up on!!!! Food was excellent- scottish and hearty and very reasonably priced. As was the drinks. Service was first class. Staff went out their way to help and accommodate you. The breakfast girls were...

Great service and the food was great. I arrived on business for a one night stay. The rooms are badly needing done up and they are freezing although there is a small heater that does the job after an hour or so. The shower wasn't up to much either with poor pressure and wasn't that warm. I suppose you get... More

Food was good (not very good, but good) and the hotel had plenty of ambiance! We ate in the bar (restaurant was very quite) and it was fun to meet the locals (who were very friendly) though you do get the odd strange one!

We visited the hotel on 4th October and stayed for one night. The chef needs to be congratulated. Everything we had to eat was delicious! Overall the staff were the jewel in the crown of this hotel from the lovely receptionist to the waiting staff and manager when we checked out. The room had a beautiful view over the harbour... More

I was here for a meal with a large group on Saturday. The staff could not cope with the numbers of diners and therefore service was very slow. The Pate was very nice but the Chicken Roulade very bland and dry. The sweet was a soggy brandy basket which had an "unusual" taste. Everyone I spoke to agreed that the... More

Ate here on recommendation of our B&B owner and were not disappointed. The outside looks dated, but the location by the sea is excellent with plenty of parking on the seafront and in adjacent streets. We decided not to eat in the bar and walked through to the back room which was clean, light and airy. The waiter was a... More

This hotel has a great strategic for anyone touring the Kintyre , Knapdale and .Cowel Region on a budget. Situated right on the sheltered and pretty fishing village harbour with views from the Bar across to the busy Tarbert Marina, there is no better site for a relaxing break. Downsides are the lack of a Lift so access can be... More

We have just eaten at this hotel & what a find it is.The food was excellent. Plentiful, hot & extremely tasty. The service was friendly without being obsequious and, despite the fact that we ordered before 6pm (when evening service starts), our order was taken without hesitation. The menu caters for all tastes & ages and there is a good... More
