“An amazing stay and Hogmanay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We went to celebrate Hogmanay and explore the area. The hotel is perfectly situated and is surrounded by stunning scenery. The managers, Simon and Christine are extremely professional and welcoming and instantly make you feel at home. They can not do enough to make sure your experience with them is second to none, they are both a credit to the hotel. The food is of a high standard and on the whole mirrors the flavours of Scotland. The standard of service is that of a four star restaurant, and we looked forward to every meal. The bar staff are also very welcoming and has its own character, with particular reference to the good service of Linda, who couldn't do enough to help you. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could expect. Overall we will highly recommend this hotel to friends and family and will defiantly be going back.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the loch, it is stunning

Just returned from a Hogmanay trip to Acharacle (self-catering) but visited the Loch Shiel Hotel for evening drinks and lunch the next day. Even with an inquisitive 2-year old in tow the staff were incredibly friendly, warm and welcoming. When we ran out of tatties for our tea they helped us out there as well.

Next visit we'll just stay at the hotel. Thanks for your great hospitality.

Chris

We went to the hotel for a meal to celebrate our young son's birthday. Wow - they even put balloons on the chairs and got him a wee pressie. Really thoughtful and made him and us feel special. The food was excellent and really good value. Thanks to all of you!

I recently attended this hotel with my extended family. The hotel is fantastic with both the owners and staff ensuring a wonderful stay. Great rooms with lovely views. Good food and a lovely lounge where the range of whiskies' is endless. Will be back for sure.

Warm welcome at this friendly hotel. Bedrooms spotlessly clean & well decorated. Good dinner but service could be a wee bit better - had to go to the bar to prompt staff we were ready to order as the waiting staff seemed to forget about us! But food was good & the fire was on so it was nice & cosy. Lovely cooked breakfast with a good choice. Peaceful location with lovely views & would Definately recommend this & stay here again

We have just returned from a short break at the Loch Shiel Hotel where we received a very warm welcome. We appreciated the flexibility and friendliness of the staff who couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were clean and comfortable with excellent views. The food was of a high standard including local produce and reasonably priced. The breakfast had an excellent choice with delicious home made jams and jellies too.
If you want a break which is enjoyable, affordable and in the most beautiful part of Scotland we cannot recommend the Loch Shiel Hotel highly enough.
Many thanks Christine, Simon and the Team

Room Tip: We had rooms 2 and 3 and would recommend them both, Room 3 was large with a lovely view of the loch...

Can't comment on the rooms, as we just stopped off for food here a couple of times during a week's break in the area. Friendly staff and delicious home-made and well presented food, served up by an open fire. Would definitely visit again if we were in the area - need to try more of those desserts!
