Great place with great staff

Chose a great place to stop off during a trip around Bute. Spacious, well designed, friendly staff and nice fare. Also really loved the rabbit randomly housed in a courtyard outside. Plenty of parking, great real ale selection and great suggestions of where to go and what to see.

Family pub with a warm welcome and great menu choice. We stayed on the island for 4 nights and ate here twice. Definitely recommend but you may need to book ahead, especially at the weekend.

Living in Kingarth, we eat and drink at the Kingarth Hotel & Smiddy Bar quite regularly. New Years Eve was the first time we had joined them for dinner and Hogmanay. As usual they did not disappoint.

Really good heartwarming food and a lovely environment at the south of the island. Local town just a short walk away and the restaurant is a great reason for a visit to Kingarth. Lovely helpful staff and a great range of food on the menu.

The food is sublime, and the ambiance is lovely, red walls, cosy , warm and the log burner roaring away this week.... More

A really nice place to stay. The rooms are nice enough and for Scotland reasonably priced. A lot of hotels on the Scottish Islands are overpriced. The rooms are pretty basic but neat tidy, very clean and just what you need if you are exploring. The food was really good. I really do not recognise some of the reviews saying... More
