My family stayed here for one night. The people running the place were pleasant but seemed inexperienced with customer service. The woman who was most likely the manager or owner was very rude and not friendly. There was not enough hot water for all of the guests in the morning and we were given the "it's an old house" line.... More

Worst place we have stayed at...in all of Europe travels. Do not stay here...we had to book because everything else was full and now we know why this place still had rooms. Rooms were overpriced, very dated, strong must odor, and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. We did not get good sleep at all. The "gardens" sadly have been neglected... More

Our stay was a fright from start to finish. I can say the towels were nice. From there it goes downhill. The bed was old and damp and we felt every spring. The shower walls had black grout and there was no water pressure. We were in " the lodge". The outbuilding really .....and every step above was like thunder.... More

We stayed last night in The Lodge. Omg. Black mold around the windows. Horrible synthetic scent to try to cover mold smell. Cheap buckled linoleum in bathroom. Mold in bathroom. Shower on off button missing. walls damaged. Cheap fixtures missing. Carpet in room funky and old. Nice toiletries and bathrobes cannot compensate. This is a bathroom from a cheap US... More

Travelling around the inner Hebrides and the Highlands we thought we would treat ourselves to some luxury with a "hot tub" and four poster in a country house hotel. This place is run down and badly run by the owners. There are not enough staff on at any time. The breakfast was full of cheaply sourced products, the hot tub... More

On arrival I was greeted by the manager who's manner ranged from dour to sour - not a great start. The rooms and the place generally are adequate if a little twee but the sign in the bathroom warning that if you soiled the towels heavily you would be charged for the laundering was another warning sign. I soon discovered... More

mold in bathroom, room very used looking, bed very uncomfortable with spring coil mattress, place needs update desperately, level of service depends on who you deal with, bar out of almost everything, very good breakfast though

There is something very special about the MacKinnon Country House Hotel. (Rick Steves did have it correct when he reviewed it). If you are looking for something with character and warmth mixed with some history, this place is for you. I have to say we also read the reviews and were quite worried about our stay July 13th. Needless to... More

We arrived at the hotel late at night after a long day of driving. When we got there it seemed really beautiful. We were wrong. First of all we did not get to stay inside the main building. But had to stay in "the lodge". To get there we had to walk past som shady looking trailers with garbage all... More

Dinner at MacKinnon House. What a unique experience. We showed up early for a 7pm reservation and made to feel somewhat unwelcome but were ushered to the small bar where there were few drinking options. All beer taps were dry. Almost all the liquor bottles appeared to be empty (all 10 of them) and there were about 5 beers to... More
