I see there are quite a lot of mixed reviews about Ardshiel on this site and I would agree that there are some very good points which are well worth mentioning, however, there are some bad points too. I always aim to write a fair review so here goes:
Good points first! The hotel is very close to town and harbour and there is parking available. The waitress/bar staff were very attentive and polite, going out of their way to be nice and welcoming. The breakfast was lovely, the full Scottish breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The check in and check out process was straight forward and fast. Evening meal was reasonable and I particularly enjoyed smoked mussels for starter! They have excellent selection of whisky available and their house red is very nice. The bar area is very nice and they have a lovely garden. Our room had some nice views.
Now the negative points...we had room 9 and although the room was clean and had everything you would need, it was very small with low parts to ceiling. If you are tall then this room would be difficult to move around in. The bathroom was also extremely small and had no heater. The room was in need of an update. Also, we came home one afternoon at 4.30 in need of a shower and freshen up to find our room wasn't serviced even though we'd gone out at 9.30. However, this was promptly sorted when it was pointed out. I thought it was quite expensive per night.
All in all this is a nice place but I'm sure there are better.
