This hotel definitely has its aristocratic charm, private and discreet. The building itself is not quite as extravagant in comparing some larger country estate; however, the standard room was very pleasant.

If you want to spend 3+ hours at dinner, most of it waiting, this is your spot. We finally walked out as we had spent 3 hours there and we're still waiting for food. One of my worst meals anywhere!

It is very hard to exceed the overwhelming impression one gets when walking into Inverlochy Castle which was, by far, the best in our luxury vacation. This restaurant is measuring up to this challenge by serving excellent food in the most romantic atmosphere.

It was a small Castle but quite interesting if you have the time. It's on the way to Ben Nevis distillery so it's worth passing by. It is free and the information on the signs, helps you understand the history of the castle.

Well worth a visit - rambling grounds with glorious views of the loch and surrounds. We had a most interesting and informative discussion with on of the guides. The restaurant was overpriced and the food average.

We were staying at this hotel, but the dinner was disappointing. There was a wide range of dress, and we were dressed for fine dining, but felt we were not treated well (because we are American?). The courses were slow and a few not interesting. Very overpriced and snobby.

We had lunch in this beautiful castle/hotel on our way to Oban. The property is lovely and our light lunch was very good and served elegantly in the sitting room.

My partner and I visited Inverlochy for afternoon tea. Magnificent surroundings and wonderful location. The staff were very professional, helpful and thoroughly discreet. We tried to book a table for dinner that evening but unfortunately they were fully booked. We will return for a stay and dinner. Highly recommend afternoon tea.

We booked a table in June 2015 and got there and were invited to wait in the salon / tea area while we chose our meal. It took the maître d'hôtel about 25 minutes to get us the menu while no one had bothered to take our coats. That being said, the castle is impressive and the first floor with... More
