We ate dinner in the restaurant when staying it the hotel. We were presented with a spectacular amuse bouche plate, followed by delicious starters and mains. I had the smoked salmon on homedmade oatcakes, followed by the saddle of roe deer. My wife had scallops, followed by cod with cockles. Both were truly delicious.

I was staying in the Taynuilt hotel for 3 nights just over a week ago and had an excellent stay.

Thank you for the great review, I fully agree on all counts, especially our Riedel Glassware, I love it. It really does make such a difference and adds a very easy touch of elegance to our restaurant but they truly are unrivaled for quality, if your buying good wine always go for Riedel.

This was some seriously good food. Locally sourced, packed with flavour, and the best dessert I've ever tasted. Service was excellent, on hand without being over-bearing. It was well priced for the quality of food. Definitely recommended.

We stopped here on our way home from a trip to Glencoe after seeing a reccomendation on facebook.

We visited recently having booked 3 nights DB&B to start our holiday in Scotland and what a great start it was! We were greeted in the car park by the waft of the chef's smoker which we discovered later produced the 'best smoked salmon we've ever had' which is saying something as we love our seafood. We loved the relaxed... More

We were recommended to visit here, very unassuming place from the outside. Food was very good, only my chicken was a let down, quite tasteless and a bit dry and very overpriced, my husbands roe deer however was delicious.
