“Another fantastic stay at Letterfinlay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

We stayed at Letterfinlay for our third time on Friday night where we met up with friends who came over from Ireland. We had champagne cocktails on the decking before a first class dinner. I had the biggest scallops I've ever seen cooked to perfection with chorizo sausage. The staff just could not do enough for us and the standard of service and food was outstanding. We just love this place. The weather did add to our enjoyment as it was wonderful. On Saturday after a superb breakfast - check out the menu - we went out on the Letterfinlay speedboat with the owner who took us to see the Osprey nest at the top of the Loch. He inflated the biscuit for the kids and towed them around the Loch. We then had lunch on the decking again. This place is always a winner for us - we will definitely be back.

We stayed for one glorious summer night at this heavenly spot on Loch Lochy.The room was very clean with a good bathroom layout.The highlights were the friendly staff and the quality of the dinner and breakfast which we enjoyed.The hotel has a decking over the Loch which would have been idyllic if the smoking fraternity had not seen it as their right to spoil non smokers enjoyment of this considerable hotel asset-a pity especially given the availabilty close by of a large car park and other hotel grounds. We look forward to staying again

Nice hotel in a fantastic location next to Loch Lochy. We stayed three nights in two rooms in July 2011. Staff (mostly from eastern Europe) were polite and service minded. Room in hotel was not very large but clean with an nice bathroom, unfortunately without a view. The room could use a bedlamp and sleep was occasionally disturbed by a noisy door in the hallway. Room in Annex was new, large with enough room for two adults and two children but more sound insulation to neighbors would have been nice. Hotel and diningroom was ok but a little worn. The complimentary breakfast was fine and the dinner at hotel was very good and reasonably priced. All in all a very nice stay with some minor problems but I would not hesitate to come back for a second stay.

We stayed in the Periguine room in Letterfinlay House for 2 nights. The room was really nice, very comfortable but maybe a little small if you were staying for longer that a night or too. The bathroom was lovely and we liked that the room was set a little away from the hotel as it was nice and quiet.

The staff were great, although it did seem as though three girls were doing everything and often had to run off to answer the phone before taking your food order! The food was excellent, we had breakfast both days and dinner on the second night and we couldn't fault it. Delicious!!

We were going on the steam train from Fort William to Mallaig at 2.45 so asked if we could check in earlier than 4pm but were told we couldn't. This was fine but then we realised that check out time was 11am and had to wonder how it takes 5 hours to turn a room around! Maybe one of the 3 members of staff has to do the rooms as well!

The views from the hotel were stunning and if you walk along the path outside the hotel there is a small private beach which although very stoney was lovely. We sat there one evening as the sun went down after stumbling across it while taking a walk. It wasn't mentioned in the hotel welcome guide which was a bit strange!

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in this area.

I am sorry you felt it was unreasonable that you could not check in to your room prior to 16:00hrs when our checkout policy is 11:00hrs. As you will appreciate we have 19 bedrooms to clean from 11:00hrs of which is why we publish check in time to be after 15:30hrs.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
