“Too early, we should have spent more time on the road: but!!!!!!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Another day of sublimely beautiful Scotland, and demanding driving, and we arrived at Chreagh Mhor Lodge to find the door locked and a notice advising that guests might book in after 4pm. This was consonant with our booking advice, and with local practice: but ten minutes in the Lodge’s lounge and a cup of coffee would have been restorative. This was our only quibble, and we did know the conditions and parameters.
The lodge was built in 1890. It is a large and dignified: it has a porch like an antenave, imposing staircases and apposite corridors. Everything is elegant, tidy and sparkling-clean.
Our room was spacious, with a million dollar-view of Loch Linnhe through our window. A good bed, functional furniture, and a large, well-appointed bathroom. A couple of large (but relativey innocuous) paintings on the wall. Importantly, a couple of straight-backed chairs and a table. Complimentary shampoo and shower gel. The Chreagh Mhor Breakfasts are delicious and generous.
Cross the road and you can enjoy time beside Loch Linnhe, on a pebbled beach, with the prospect of seeing nearby otters if you are lucky, … and across the loch the conifer-swathed, double-summited ‘Mountain of the Thunderbolt', Beinn a' Bheithir.
The lady on Reception was generous with her time, suggestions and assistance. She kindly offered advice on where we might have dinner, an old pub named the Loch Leven Hotel. It was an excellent suggestion, we had a perfect and memorable meal, seated beside a window with a view of the loch, seen over the top of the most beautiful of gardens.

We stayed for one night during a half-term break on the West Coast.

We received a very warm welcome, and our daughter was so excited when she was told 'her room' had the TV. The owner couldn't have been more helpful, and even apologised for not giving us her full attention at our time of arrival (she was checking-in other guests too). This was completely unnecessary.

Breakfast was brilliant, with a wide range of pastries, breads, cereals, dried and fresh fruit, yogurt and the option to have a cooked breakfast also.

This was, to our mind, far more than you would expect from a B&B. It's a pity our stay didn't allow us to spend longer at the Creag Mhor. We will most definitely be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 9, a family room at the front of the building with stunning loch views! The brilli...

Our 2 night stay was exceptional, the room was a home away from home; large, comfortable and relaxing. A fantastic range of whiskies for whisky lovers like ourselves with a lovely log fire to sip them by, the perfect combination. The owner and her staff were brilliant; very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We will certainly be coming back here whenever we visit the highlands and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4 which is just above the dining room, lovely big room with a very comfortable bed...

Upon our arrival, we were told our reservations for 3 rooms had been cancelled by someone. They never said by whom or why, we were not allowed a copy of the "cancellation notice" . We all felt duped and our rooms were given to a wedding party, they did make alternate arrangements and we stayed there the following night. However the "upgraded rooms promised were quite dismal. We contacted Visit Scotland Tours to ask, they proclaimed they NEVER cancelled the reservation. And why would they.

We enjoyed our two night stay. Our large comfortable room directly overlooked the loch with great views to the mountains beyond. The modern shower room had thick high quality towels you would expect in a 5* hotel. We met the lady who owns the Lodge and her values were perfectly translated by the young staff. Breakfast was very good with a fruit 'bar' of excellent in season fruits. As Lowland Scots maybe we didn't quite appreciate the quiet scottish music but understand how visitors to Scotland will enjoy this added atmospheric! Apart from the great staff what distinguishes Greag Mhor is the wonderful lounge with open log fire and great whisky bar. The range of whiskies beats many city 'specialist' whisky bars and they still serve old fashioned measures! And, you are asked what type of glass you would like your whisky served in. We were there in October and we think all the rooms were occupied, many for more than one night. We met a young American couple and two young guys from Austria and detected other US accents. This is much more than a B&B. The location just on the north side of the Ballachulish bridge is ideal for exploring the wonders of Glencoe. We will be back.

We stayed here one night, between Glencoe and the Fort William area.
The rooms were adequate, but there was mold in the bathroom shower, and didn't feel as if the room was as clean as it could be.
The property is a bit tired, and could use some "sprucing up".
Having said that, the Scottish Breakfast was excellent, and exactly what we needed to get the day started! There was a bountiful array of muffins, bagels, toast, etc. with juices, and also made-to-order eggs, sausage, unlimited teas and coffee!!

We along with our daughters stayed two nights in September. This guest lodge is well located especially for those of you are visiting Glencoe and the Fort William area. Nice spacious rooms, rich history, well stocked bar and a stylish owner gives this lodge a distinct character.
