We booked for May Day bank holiday for a 3 night stay booked at a show in South Wales. The location is 2nd to none right on the banks of Loch Awe. We upgraded to a Loch view room and was well worth it. Lovely welcome, a good start. Now the fun begins! We decided after our journey to have... More

All the bad reviews about this place are accurate. It's appalling. Rude, ignorant staff. Dirty, tatty rooms. Cheap, nasty food that is badly cooked. If you dare mention something wrong to a member of staff they treat you like something they've just stepped in. Avoid.

Like so many others who have written reviews here we bought a 3 night package at a show. Travelling up from the South East we flew into Glasgow and hired a car for the duration. We had read the very mixed reviews on here before going to Scotland arriving on 26/5/2015. The first impressions were not good. In fairness arriving... More

Just returned, having spent three nights at the Portsonachan hotel. To be fair the hotel is a little tired. Having said that it is extremely good value for money. the staff are very friendly, the food is excellent, the rooms are clean, and the owner is lovely. It is in a fantastic setting right on the edge of the loch.... More

Stayed here with my wife for a 3night break. Our room turned out to be a chalet. How brillant is that. Great scenery from hotel over loch awe to mountains still with snow. Good food and friendly staff. This was an offer at a country fair we went to. If you see hotel offer worth a visit

An old country house, plus coach house and lodges set along the very edge of Loch Awe with breathtaking views and homely comforts. The service was good, the decor a little tired in parts and the food good. The access road was mainly single track, both ways on this Loch side, but really wonderful to drive through when the sun...

We arrived to be told our room was on the second floor - up 2 flights of steep winding staircases - no lifts, and along a corridor to the very end. The room was fairly cold but we did have a heater, there were no towels and less than half a roll of loo paper. (Both rectified after a phone... More

Along with the majority of other guests we bought our break at a show and for what we paid we have no complaints. OK the hotel could do with a coat of paint and the conservatory roof leaked the tired elegance of the hotel was there to be seen. Any shortcomings were alleviated by the staff , they were without...

The hotel stay was gifted to us and I had read many reviews on this hotel, and they varied greatly so we did not know what to expect. The hotel itself is off the A819 down approx four miles of the B840 which, be warned is a single track road, with small passing places every few hundred yards, to enable... More

We also booked at a travel show for the £99 3 night break on easter tuesday We were put in the main hotel in the Macyver room and also had single beds put together which were totally uncomfortable and the mattresses sank down. The room smelt damp and fusty and an electric heater had been left on . The door... More
