The Isle of Eriska hotel is a stunning place and the service is friendly and impeccable. The food was outstanding - afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. Our only criticism is that, for the money, the spa rooms outside were in need of a spruce up, they looked a little bit tired which was a little bit disappointing given that I... More

My wife and I spent a very happy 2 days here in early September whilst on an assignment in the area. The hotel itself is beautiful and harks back to a more civilised era. Our first floor room was very well appointed and the bed was extremely comfortable. The views from the large windows afford stunning views of the surrounding... More

We did not stay at the Hotel, but my partner and I visited the Restaurant for dinner for a special occasion. From the moment we arrived and were personally greeted at the door, until the moment we left, the whole evening was a wonderful experience. The menu, although small in choice, was huge in terms of quality of the produce... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of your recent dinner with us. It is great that you so enjoyed the experience and that you appreciated the fact that we used as many local products and suppliers as possible. indeed it is one of the main thrusts behind Rosses cooking using ingredients and products which...

We arrived on Eriska around the same time as the weekend storms. Upon blowing into the reception area of this grand country house we were greeted by the delicious smell of a real fire & given a warm welcome. Fiona the head of Housekeeping showed us to our weekend retreat which was the self catering Arnott's House. She gave us... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay at Arnotts house. As you rightly pointed out you could not have arrived in wetter conditions but at least you did not feel obliged to rush out and explore the island- it might have been more of an adventure than you had expected as we clocked a record...

We have just returned from eriska having chosen to spend a weekend with our family to celebrate our golden wedding .

Thank you for writing about your recent family festivities and your stay at Eriska. Eriska was always designed and envisaged as a private house and therefore since my parents converted it to a hotel, country house, it has always been a wonderful place for families and celebration- really as it would have been over one hundred years ago.

Seeking a 5 Star hotel in the Oban area, we booked this hotel by telephone on arrival at Glasgow airport, hired a car and drove up there. Perhaps the easy availability on the day was a first indication that all was not well. Disagreeing fundamentally with other reviewers, the setting and location of the hotel are below average for the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of your stay at Eriska.

Thank you for our fantastic stay at the hotel. Especially the staff, for their expertise and knowledge about the food and about the whiskies. A special thank you to the younger chap who explained about the whiskies to us and made us feel relaxed and really welcome in the hotel. The staff made this hotel a special experience. We've never...

So glad we chose Isle of Eriska as one of 3 hotels to stay on a recent trip to the west coast. There was a genuinely warm welcome on arrival, quick check in and shown around the main areas of hotel before heading up to our room to find our luggage already there. As everyone has already mentioned, location is... More

We are occasional visitors to this lovely hotel and this is our first visit since joining Trip Advisor. This hotel must be blessed with the most idyllic location in the whole of the UK. It sits on its very own private and sheltered island at the mouth of Loch Cerran on the west coast of Scotland. The trees on the... More

The hotel, although a little tricky to get to, is situated in an absolutely picturesque location and grounds. The rooms are nice and the food & wine was excellent. However it was, on this occasion, sadly let down by silly mistakes and when you are paying a minimum of over £400 per-night (with add-ones at every step of the way)... More
