“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

The young couple who renovated the Loch Shiel Hotel deserves a strong recognition. The comfortable rooms enjoy a very nice view over the Loch and the surrounding hills. The menus are various and excellent, you can eat in a warm atmosphere. We have been staying in the hotel for 3 nights and it is a perfect place for hiking hours and days in the Ardnamuchan peninsula. We look forward to coming back.

We dined on the first night of a two night stay on the penninsular [we did not stay at the hotel].
The food was good as was the service.Unfortunately, we were the only dinners in the dining room.The pub and the casual dining area was busy.
The highlight of the meal was the fabulous Baileys Cheese cake with fruit compote.It was absolutely delicious.

Room Tip: We. did not stay here

Excellent welcoming staff ...great location....good food ....lively bar....could not fault anything.

Four of us were on a cycling trip through Ardnamurchan and chose the Hotel over the our normal hostel or bunkhouse. Glad we did because we had a great night.

This is the second time I have stayed at Lock Shiel Hotel, and my parents have used this hotel a few times. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The service, food and accommodation was excellent. We will definitely stay again.

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.
