Just returned from a 3 night stay at the stonefield castle hotel and what a place it is. You receive a warm welcome upon arrival which also continues throughout your stay. We had a lovely double room with a large bathroom and opulent decor in keeping with the character of the hotel.
The room was very clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant and I would say it was one of the nicesy meals I have ever had and the service was excellent. The breakfasts were superbly cooked and presented - best poached eggs ever! The situation of this hotel is amazing with views of the lochs and we went on a wonderful walk around the nearby island. Definately recommend this hotel and the area of tarbert which is only a few miles away the scenery is stunning and the people so friendly.

Room Tip: pick one with a view of the loch.

Thank you for your very positive comments. I shared your review with the staff at our morning meeting and Head Chef Bryce asked me to tell you that since you wrote in our Guest Comment Book that his” poached eggs were the best ever” he’s hardly sold a fried or scrambled! We are so glad you had a lovely stay with us and hope to see you again in the future.

Attended my retiral function here and it was brilliant. Staff could not have done more to make the evening a success. The hotel was amazing, food lovely and staff friendly and efficient. The breakfast was freshly cooked and good quality food served in the beautiful dining room with the most amazing views. Thanks to the lovely staff for making the evening such a memorable one.

Thank you for your very kind review. It was a delight to have your entire party here last Friday. It’s always good to have reviews posted on Trip advisor by guests but when local folk take the time to tell others how much they have enjoyed their experience at the Castle it means so much to the staff and myself. We wish you many happy years in retirement and always be assured of a warm welcome at Stonefield.

We stayed in the "premier room", larger than most flats. Amazing views of Loch Fyne and the surroundings. Dinner was very nice as well. Not a "modern" hotel in any sense but lots of atmosphere and great service.

Nothing is too much trouble for Anne and her pleasant and helpful team. A. warm and welcoming ambience in beautiful surroundings. Nice touch to have the waterproofs and wellies in the hall, just in case there's a hint of west coast drizzle when you go for your stroll in the grounds! Good food, well presented.

Thank you for your very complimentary review. I will pass your comments on to the team at our daily meeting this morning. I am so pleased that guests are making use of our wellies and raincoats as the grounds are too beautiful not to explore even on a rainy day! I hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Stonefield sometime in the future.

Booked a midweek break at Stonefield and had a lovely time. The grounds of the hotel and views of Loch Fyne are spectacular. The hotel is lovely and the staff very welcoming. We ate in the hotel on our first night and the food was faultless. I get the impression that the menu is the same each night except for the soup and fish of the day. Slightly disappointed with our room, quite dated for a 4 star hotel and I think its time that the anaglipta wallpaper taken off the walls! Breakfast each morning was suberb with plenty of choice. Overall had a lovely time and would certaily return. The staff were great especially the girl at reception with the blonde hair!

Hi, my wife and I had three nights here in Oct. First of all can I say we enjoyed our stay enormously, but should it be 4*.
I felt the room, we had, could have been upgraded as it was a little shabby.
The food was great, but, it has the same menu each night exept the fish and soup of the day.
Breakfast was also very nice, but, there were no papers to read to assist digestion.
There is no pool or leisure facilities, but, the grounds are wonderful, leading down to the loch.
I know Im being fussy, but,these little things are what can make ones stay nicer.
