My husband and I have just returned from an extensive tour driving around Scotland - this year have been travelling every month since May including overseas and every occasion staying in hotels. Previous stop to the Argyll was in Aboyne, Aberdeenshire and what a beautiful journey that is, autumn colours and snow on mountain tops, lucky with weather most of the trip. We were a bit worried about parking at the Argyll Hotel but that proved no problem in mid November and we were very happy with our lovely room and views through the large Georgian style window, during day over the water and at night with the bright lights all around. Also remarkably quiet at night despite its central situation.
Staff/management could not have served us better or been more welcoming and helpful , our room and shower room were immaculately clean and very well equipped, more storage we think than anywhere else we have travelled in past months in hotels (one of which did not even have a wardrobe and some no chests of drawers) but prices everywhere we stayed were similar to the Argyll which we thought probably superior to many and very good value indeed especially as we had booked dinner bed and breakfast there. Excellent tv and we liked the way it was situated on the wall above the shower room, easy to watch while relaxing in bed. As my husband pointed out, everything worked - which is more than can be said at some hotels we have stayed in.
If one wanted to to think of any drawbacks a flight of steps up to the hotel and no parking in hotel grounds might possibly not be the most convenient for any guest with physical disability
though my husband and I are not young and had no problem!
The hotel is immaculately maintained but they might have had a problem with some of their ceramic floor tiles that have cracked (some in shower room & main hall) but if that is all one could find amiss then perhaps not too worth mentioning. When visiting famiiy and friends in Scotland we shall definitely want to stay at the Argyll hotel again.
