Have just spent 2 nights at this newly refurbished hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
From check in to check out the staff were more that helpful. On arrival we were upgraded to the principle room. It has the biggest bath I've seen with amazing views across to Islay and Jura. This room (and a few others up the stairs) had a balcony that would be perfect on a summer night to watch the sunset. It was a little too windy for us to sit and enjoy this time.
The bed was huge and the room was of a high standard, both in cleanliness and decor.
Our breakfast was included and was of normal standard, good selection of items available. Our first sitting there had been a lack of chef so we though the more self service approach was normal but on our second morning normal service was resumed and this was in more keeping with the high standard of the hotel.
We dined one night and the food was lovely, the service was great. The only let down is the minimalist menu but we do appreciate that this is probably a logical approach as it becomes more established and busier.
There is an function room that we didn't see but can only imagine that this would be a great venue for a special occasion.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Putechan Hotel is a former Duke of Argyll’s hunting lodge dating from 1872. It lies on the western edge of Kintyre facing the dramatic Atlantic Ocean with stunning views of the Isles of Islay, Jura and Gigha, together with incredible sunsets. It is surrounded by rugged grounds with an amazing pebble beach, strewn with giant rocks for our customers to enjoy. Take a walk along the beach or perhaps a BBQ while looking out for the dolphins and minke whales. The hotel, now under new ownership, has been extensively refurbished and extended, and can now offer a variety of bedrooms to suit different tastes and pockets; from the bridal suite with roll-top window bath looking out to Jura and Islay and balcony facing the ocean, our 1st floor premier rooms with balconies, ground floor doubles with sea views and a linked disabled room. We can also offer more budget accommodation in our rear facing rooms and ‘bunk rooms’. We also have a fully refurbished and extended Venue catering for a variety of events from weddings (up to 120 seated). Attached to the south wing is the sensational ‘Rock Room’ with one whole wall formed by a massive rock with French doors to the rear and front with stunning views over the ocean. The room seats around twenty and could be used for meetings, smaller intimate weddings, yoga/fitness work-outs, business meetings, or an exhibition hall for local artists. Tell us what event you want to run and we will make sure it is one to remember. The south-facing courtyard is a natural sun-trap and looks over onto the private beach. With practically no light pollution, and clever outdoor lighting systems the Putechan enjoys fantastic stargazing on a cloudless night. ... more less
