This is an extremely friendly hotel in a stunning setting. We stayed for the 3-night New Year package, which included good food, music and dancing to see in the new year, and a lounge and bar area for relaxing in the evening. The hotel is right next to the sea and is adjacent to the Arduaine Scottish National Trust gardens.... More

I've uploaded a couple of photos which show you the ideal setting of this hotel. You views are stunning and I understand that every room in the hotel looks over the loch. It is an old building which has clearly been added to a few times over the years. The inside is old fashioned and full of character. I wouldn't... More

We recently visited this hotel for Gourmet evening and stayed additional nights, we stayed in Cedae lodges which have fantastic views of loch and surrounds. Room was average with bed and pillows not v comfortable. Furniture largely old. Shower no pressure and of little use. Food was good albeit it did not live up to expectations.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review although it is very disappointing that having engaged with us personally throughout Gourmet Night you did not feel that you could share your comments with us directly rather than through Tripadvisor.

My first impression was ;not the most attractive of buildings as you drive in, but its beautiful loch side setting with resident highland cattle grazing, is revealed in all its glory as you walk on through the homely, friendly run hotel.Great location for exploring on foot, by water or car, wild life and scenery are breathtaking, In November we had...

I am lost for words. This hotel must have the most awesome setting in the UK. We were blessed with an amazing sunset and a glorious sunrise. The room was spacious, though a little tired, but the view made up for it. The staff were tops and the food 1st class. Our first visit was 38 years ago when I... More

Stayed here in August 2014 with my sister. Although the place looked a little run down on the outside, our recently remodeled room was very spacious and well appointed. Our room had a sliding glass door onto the lawn that led directly to the water with spectacular views. Decent cable tv & wifi. We had both dinner & breakfast in... More

We arrived just as the sun was sinking into a glistening sea and were rewarded with the natural beauty that gives this hotel its unique asset... a setting of true tranquility....

Many thanks for your great review and we are so glad you enjoyed your second visit here! Nothing much can be done about the mobile signal, although there are a few cheeky wee pockets of signal if you know where (or ask at Reception!). Hope to see you and your wife here in 2015!
