Knipoch Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Knipoch B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights in May 2013. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was clean and welcoming. We had dinner in the hotel and the food was excellent. There wasn't a huge choice, but there was enough to choose from. We both had halibut, and it was cooked beautifully. Unfortunately, it didn't stop raining, which is hardly the fault of the hotel, but it meant that we had limited options after dinner for a walk so we found the location a bit isolated. The bed was not the most comfortable one that we have ever slept in, but the room was bright and clean, with tea and coffee making facilities

I stayed at the Knipoch Hotel from 9 March until 11 March for my big birthday. Myself and my husband had a wonderful time.

The hotel has lots of charm and character.

We stayed in a room right opposite the loch. The room was spacious, well kept, nice and clean. The bathroom was also spotless.

Breakfast was plentiful and very nice. We also had a couple of meals at the hotel, including my birthday meal and they were also very, very nice.

The owner was very informative about places to eat and visit.

The weather was also very nice, which added to the charm of Oban.

Room Tip: Ask for a room opposite the loch, the views wonderful.

We chose the Knipoch because we were visiting the Isle of Seil (a must) and because it is dog friendly. We stayed Bed and Breakfast for one night. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The hotel was very quiet but the room was fine, breakfast excellent, service very good and it WAS dog friendly with some nice walks from the hotel. All in all recommended.

We were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding that was held at the Knipoch Hotel this weekend. It was a stunning location, the food was just wonderful and the atmosphere of the house was friendly, comfortable and first class. Very attentive staff (who were mostly family ) a beautiful old building, similar to The Manor House Hotel in Oban but much more spacious and with a view to rival any on the West Coast. First Class. Well Done Knipoch.

I stayed here for my Birthday a few weeks ago. My boyfriend booked a weekend away for us. For me, I don't think it was worth the money. It is very dated, and oddly quiet! The only other guests were OAP's, which I think the hotel is more suited to!

The room was basic, old, in need of refurbishment. The bed was comfortable although we couldnt see the TV from the bed as it was so far away!

We ate in the hotel, in what was a small room with a few tables dotted around the outskirts. The food was majorly overpriced, I wish we had gone somewhere else for dinner. It was quite uncomfortable also as it was so quiet and in a small room with other people, felt rather too intimate.

I wouldnt stay again. It wasnt awful, just wasn't for us.

Good food. Good location - only make sure that you sleep upstairs . The noise that filters down to my room was incredible and very annoying. Any footsteps are magnified as booms. I did call reception and they kindly called the people upstairs to tread softly? Staff were friendly and despite the noise problem I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Avoid room 7. Some rooms have a view of the lake opposite - ask for those
