I would give this place a 5 except the road to the Blarcreen is a little narrow and the 4 miles might be difficult for some. The rooms are great with view that look like they are from a painting. Larg, spotless, comfortable. Friendly host and high qualit breakfasts. Good value for an upscale accomodation in a great area.

We stayed here in February for our anniversary and had such a good time, we have returned once already and have booked to go back a third time. Cake and tea on arrival with a log fire burning just set the tone for a great visit. Sian and Gary are lovely and friendly and will do anything to help. The... More

We usually go away for our anniversary but decided to stay at home and we are glad we did. It was well worth it! A last minute deal, Blarcreen House is loved by its owners and this is demonstrated the minute you drive up to the front door. We were greeted by the whole family including two adorable dogs. We...

We were absolutely delighted with our weekend stay in May, at Blarcreen House. The rooms were immaculate, and Breakfast was superb. We were well looked after during our stay by Gary, and Sian who really looked after us during our stay. The House overlooks Loch Etive, with the mountains in the background, the scenery is absolutely spectacular, Brilliant!

All the praise for Blarcreen House is richly deserved. We stayed for a night in total luxury before launching kayaks and touring the beautiful Loch Etive for 3 days with a tent. Sian and Garry did everything to ensure that we had a successful trip and even offered to drive our car back from our launch site. We returned for... More

My wife and I decided to take a road trip through The Scottish Highlands for our 10th anniversary. The first couple of nights were at Stobo Castle, which is amazing, so our bar had been set high. From there we found a last minute room at the Blarcreen House. Because it was last minute, our expectations were low, but to... More

The hostess was kind, welcoming, and friendly. The details and care she puts into the services and decoration are incredible. Breakfast was delicious, healthy, and served with great, happy service, and exceeded our expectations! We especially liked... More

Here's a place where they know how to pamper you. It would be easy to get bored with going back to the same place time and again if the place wasn't as good as Blarcreen House. The attention to detail is superb. Sian and Garry remember what their guests prefer from previous visits and ensure that it's available when you... More
