This is the most westerly hotel in mainland Britain, situated at the tip of the Ardnmurchan peninsula, some 55 miles from a decent-sized town (Fort William), largely on single track roads. As such, one would expect aspects to be a little more rough-edged than in a town hotel but this place nevertheless has clean, spacious and comfortable rooms, good free... More

Still finding its feet after change of management.Very friendly but they need a house-keeper. A bit disorganized but great food and friendly staff made for it. Rooms, good size and modern. Rooms weren't made-up during day which one would expect from a hotel . No TV in room but hear that this will be rectified.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, I take all these seriously as feedback, good and bad, is important to me. I have taken your thoughts on rooms being made up during the day and we will now be asking customers if they would like this service at the booking in stage, as some customers prefer total privacy....

This B&B has recently changed hands and it would be unfair to be super critical at such an early stage of the new owners involvement. In fact the new owner wasn't there having had to rush back to England for a friend's funeral however Martin who was left in charge could not have done more to try and make our... More

Been visiting sonachan hotel for about 13 years now. Never been disappointed until a planned 3 night stay over Easter weekend. Room was fine but upon arrival was advised that hotel was under new management and that previous owner had allowed hotel to get in a "state". Went down for tea only to be told there were problems getting chef.... More

as you were told at the time, its unfortunate that your experience was so bad, we'd been in the hotel 3 weeks at the time and had only just finished cleaning and repairing, in hind sight we should maybe have cancelled your booking but felt that so long as we kept you informed your options were open. i'm truly sorry...

Had a one night stay, hotel is in a beautiful location. Room was very clean, staff were very polite, attentive and friendly. We were informed that the hotel is now under new management and an apology was offered for the limited menu and lack of working television. However, no apology was needed. Food was delicious and clearly home cooked, and... More

My partner and I have recently stayed at the Sonachan Hotel and had a really enjoyable stay. As I understand it the hotel has just been taken over and what a great place it is. The manager was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him, though a few more staff to help with taking orders could helped... More

My partner and I have just returned from staying in this hotel. Having never been to Ardnamurchan before, we chose this hotel based on the information provided on the hotels website and some great reviews on trip advisor. The hotel itself was basic but in a great location which was what we were looking for as this was a last... More

I am truly sorry that your experience was not all that it should be. This was my fault entirely due to my lack of experience of Easter in this area of the country. We were under staffed, mainly due to a lack of people looking for work here, there is pretty much full employment here. I am now in touch... More

The Sonachan is a relief to find as there really is nowhere else to eat for miles. They can capitalise on this and the stunning location. The guy who served us explained that they were just getting started again hence the limited menu. This may also have explained that the gents needed a spring clean and the outside area tidied...

This place is perfectly located if you love nature and hiking. Helen, the owner, will make you feel right at home, as will the pet donkeys, sheep and dog. Truly beautiful place in one of the most amazing locations in Scotland
