The spa is one of the best we have ever been too. The staff are really friendly and one in particular - Rita, she gave the best deep tissue massage. The restaurant upstairs is also lovely. The view is incredible and the food is lush. I defiantly recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing day out.

Have visited this restaurant now on several occasions, mostly on Sundays and with friends. There are a few moorings which we have used and come ashore and walked up to the spa/restaurant building. The staff are very welcoming, there is a terrace area with stunning scenery and wildlife spotting opportunities. We have seen deer from the terrace and twice seen... More

Visited Eriska for dinner on the last night of a week-long break in Scotland. A solo diner made to feel instantly at home by the staff on reception, in the bar, and in the dining room. Pre-dinner drinks in the orangery overlooking the grounds, before moving into the conservatory part of the restaurant for dinner. Fine dining at its best.... More

What a fabulous location and place to visit. The journey to find this hotel in itself was great fun especially the bridge. Old school Scottish tradition hospitality with a welcoming interior and nice staff. Only went for dinner which was very good but would be a lovely place to stay.

The Isle of Eriska is a fantastic hotel. Well worth a visit. We stayed in a Spa Suite and these rooms are not in the main building they are scattered around the grounds but they are lovely and very spacious rooms. They all have a conservatory (essential in rainy Argyll!) a lounge, a hot tub and a private walled garden... More

Thank you for taking the time and effort to make such a detailed response on Trip Advisor a really helpful guide for guests considering satying with us at Eriska. The Spa Suites you enjoyed were an addition to Eriska over ten years ago but they are based round a conservatory as personally I always like being able to enjoy reading... More

I have memories of landing on Eriska by boat as a child (late 70's), and so it was great to stay at the Hilltop Reserve for 3 nights this weekend as a treat for our silver wedding anniversary. We were rewarded with perfect views and complete privacy to enjoy them. The accommodation was perfect for us; modern and well equipped,... More

Thank you for your kind comments and review which reflected upon all the changes at Eriska since you first visited in the late 70s. The most recent of these was the Hilltop Reserve where you stayed and like all of Eriska we have crafted everything with two considerations, firstly what would we want when we go away and secondly what...

Sadly my family and I usually stay at big hotel chains and do love some of the smaller properties like the Ritz in Montreal and the Boscolo Milano but this was really special and different experience for us. And one worth recommending. The place is real country house, not grand and big but the perfect size to enjoy what the... More

Thank you for your kind review on Trip Advisor, When my parents first opened Eriska in 1974 they set out to offer a real country house experience and were adamant that the size was important balancing the opportunity to have a range of facilities and amenities without the need to be too large or impersonal so with only 23 rooms...

Lots of very good things about this hotel. First, lovely setting on its own island - big enough to enjoy walking around. Secondly, plenty to do - decent short golf course, croquet and putting, swimming pool, table tennis and gym. Thirdly, excellent food. Breakfasts were great, plenty of choice and good portions, dinner likewise with the cheese trolley beating any... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent visit to Eriska.

It is simply more than a hotel or island but it is about... More

Lovely hotel set on its own island. We would have never found it so we were lucky to have driver who knew his way. Has a Michelin 1 star restaurant that did not disappoint.

Beautiful lunch on deck of the spa overlooking the water. Friendly service. Husband had fish and chips. I had lamb koftas, both delicious. Parents had been before and had similar good food and service. Idyllic setting especially if the sun is out!
