Lovely hotel to stay in a beautiful area of Scotland, we spent our honeymoon in Loch Awe and it was great to return. Warm welcome, and friendly staff. Plenty of walks and places to visit nearby. The first time we went there they were building the hydroelectricity plant, now you can go on conducted tours underground.

My friend and I were allocated a double room, instead of the twin we had booked for our 3nt girls chill break. As there were no twins left, they gave us a 2 bed s/c lodge, still with the included breakfast (nice upgrade!) The lodge was well appointed and clean, including a sauna! There was a limited view of the... More

This is a very comfortable hotel. It is an old building and in areas could do with some updating. We had a lochside apartment and it was very comfortable and had all we required, it was nicely decorated and very clean. The water from the tap is brown as others have said but a large bottle of water was left... More

My wife and I have just returned home, after a most delightful 3 day vacation at the Portsonachan hotel. On the recommendation of the owner who we encountered at the Edinburgh garden festival, we stayed in one of the Lochside apartments (Iona) I am very glad to report that the hotel lived up to our expectations in all respects. First... More

We had this misfortune to stay in this dilapidated lodge recently. There were two tarpaulins covering most of the roof. The wooden balcony was rotted through in places. The promised loch view was only visible from one end of the balcony and even then it was between two trees. The TV was not working on arrival and was only fixed... More

Myself and my partner returned to this hotel, and this time stayed in the Lochside apartments. They are fabulous, with travertine wet room, smart kitchen come sitting area and stunning views. The doors from the living area open directly onto a patio so close you could throw stones in the water if you wanted to. The staff were very helpful,... More

Portsonachan Hotel We booked this hotel whilst at a garden show, I'm sure most of the people who stay at this hotel have come through this route. It would not be passing trade, as the Hotel's biggest problem is its location - three miles along a single track winding potholed road, I had doubts my car would survive unscathed either... More

We visited the portsonachan hotel in March 2014. The place is remote and breath taking, the surroundings are stunning. I was overwhelmed by the majesty of the mountains around the loch, the views from the chalets are sublime. The accommodation is lovely, tv reception is as you would expect being in the highlands, the water is reassuringly brown - it's... More
