This was by far my kids' favorite amenity-wise of 6 places we stayed in Scotland. Watching fishing and jellyfish swim off the pier... the pool, the gorgeous view. Room clean, comfortable and adequate. Thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay here.

Stayed in the Hollytree Hotel for two over night stays a week apart so was in two different bedrooms. The rooms were both very clean and the bed comfortable. We ate in the bar the first time and the restaurant the second time. The menus do vary but the food was consistent in both. Though not a wide choice of... More

Yet another great stay at the Holly Tree. This was our second visit this year and as always was an excellent stay. As soon as we walk in the door we feel like we are at home. We don't even have to ask for our fav room it is automatically allocated to us. Thanks to Donald and all his team... More

Low quality but cleanish. It tries hard to be a 3 star hotel but only just scraps by. Staff were very friendly which keeps this place out of the 2 star rating. Our bathroom was full of spiders and the bed was in need of a new mattress. The public areas felt like a train station waiting room. Food however... More

We have been visiting the area on an annual basis for the past ten years and although the restaurant had been recommended to us, this was the first year that we'd had time to dine there, but we'll make time in future - unbroken views across Loch Linnhe, comfortable restaurant, friendly and attentive service and good food! Please note that... More

Holly Tree has amazing views and is a large hotel compared to the size of most small town hotels in Scotland. The bathroom was a great size and seemed to have had some re-modeling but the main bedroom was a bit outdated. The walls are thin so if you have a noisy neighbor, you are out of luck. The WI-FI...

Spent a few nights at the Holly Tree and had a very enjoyable stay. Fantastic facilities including the pool and sauna. Staff were very friendly, rooms clean and modern with good views. Ideally situated on the main road to Oban. Food great. Will definitely return!

I was part of a group of over 20 motorcyclists who stayed here recently on a biking weekend of the highlands and once again found the Holly Tree Hotel be be an excellent base for our ventures. We stayed for three nights and dined here for both breakfast & dinner, and whilst we had some minor niggles regarding incorrect breakfast... More
