Steam room and huge bath added a bit of luxury. Interesting menu - food started with wonderful canapés and just got... read more

This place is a piece of heaven. I truly love to escape here and sit outside with their homemade scones and a coffee. Their food is of such a high standard and the service is second to none. I always reccomend this place to anyone I know.

Just had a one night stay here with my lovely wife. We started with a bottle of champagne in the small but cosy (log fire) bar. Champagne chilled perfectly. Waitress charming. Dinner was just brilliant. Between us we had scallops, venison, monkfish, cheese and dessert. All delicious.The canapés and little extra courses were fantastic too. Staying on food, breakfast was...

Fab food and lots of extra's between courses, great staff team. Menu is rather pricey but you are in a beautiful location.

Beautiful location overlooking Loch Voil. really enjoyed our stay here from the welcome greeting, tea & scones, the evening meal, and the feature courtyard room. Almost everything was first class. The only detractors from our stay was that the IPA pump was broken (given location the hotel seems at mercy of brewery engineers to fix); and the haggis at breakfast... More

Very good food based on fresh local ingredients, friendly service and a bright dining room with quirky decor. Choice for vegetarians was a bit limited, but the salad was substantial and inventive.

Very nice décor, very small room and it would not hurt the hotel to organize some complementary activities like walks or other

The Monchyle Mhor hotel is distance from the main road, but it is well worth a visit. You travel through the countryside and along the side of Loch Voil and just before you see Loch Doine you come across the building suddenly in a clearing between two lochs, fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. We were greeted by cheerful staff... More

You turn at the Mhor motel, then travel for 8 miles down a single track road by the loch..eventually you reach a converted farmhouse. Now a great, quiet, quaint upmarket hotel and restaurant. A view to savour across the loch and an experience I will not forget. The reception was warm and friendly, the restaurant cosy and the right balance... More
