We ate in here a few times during our stay mainly because of the kids, but the food was ok nothing to write home about. The service was very bad, the staff more interested in talking & carrying on amongst themselves than attending to customers.

The tables are reserved and the view is magnificent, whether you're inside or out.. We had dinner there two nights straight. We ate in the restaurant the first evening and in the bar the following night. You will see beautiful mountains in the distance and watch as the many boats and ships happen by. The sunsets are outstanding, all seen... More

We ate in the restaurant on the recommendation of a local and we were not disappointed. I could certainly recommend the smoked salmon starter and the vension main course. The portion sizes were good too. The views over the loch and the mountains beyond are stunning. We visited twice and the views were different each time due to the weather... More

We walked here from our B&B down the road, on a very lovely path by the loch Went for an early dinner and had a table by the window looking out over a very dramatic scene as it as alternating, as it will here, between rain and sun. We ordered appetizers/soups and main dishes, both fish, and all was quite... More

I visited recently as part of a party of 12 for a special lunch. Every single member of our party had a delicious 2 course lunch which exceeded expectations. Starters included huge local prawns, delicious smoked haddock chowder, juicy well sized mussels in a cream and white wine sauce. Mains were served with a plentiful supply of well cooked veg... More

This review is in two parts---because our fabulous dining experiences were divided between the wooden terrace deck outside of the Holly Tree Hotel bar (afternoon snack) and the Seafood Restaurant (evening dinner)! Both venues afford patrons the peaceful, breathtaking views across Loch Linnhe (the only sea loch along the Great Glen fault). When we arrived after approximately six hours on... More

Ate here for five nights in the trot while staying up the road lately and it had been recommended. The location right on Loch Linnhe gives superb views from the adjacent bar and restaurant straight across the Loch to the mountains and you can dine as the sunsets in a modern, immaculately clean and well staffed eatery with smiling, young...

The windows overlooking the lake are definitely the big attraction at this restaurant. A word of caution though, if it's a bright, sunny day with little cloud cover, you might want to sit a row back rather than right at the window since it can get very warm, very quickly. We encountered this problem, but the view was so lovely,... More

We live locally and everyone we know always raves how nice meals are at the Hollytree. So we took a friend on her birthday as a treat. Pre-dinner drinks on the terrace with a very beautiful sunset were nice, but the chairs and tables were all wet even though there was no rain on the day, so we had to... More
