A lovely hotel in a lovely destination.
My wife and I stayed for a Saturday night in mid September.
Parking is either in the street or in the village car park about twenty yards away. We had no problem getting a space but I can imagine it might be more difficult during the height of the tourist season.
Check in was quick and easy - I had given my credit card details when I booked the room. We had arrived late and i was slightly concerned that we had not booked anywhere to eat; Plockton has some nice places to eat but these can getnbooked up, especially on a Saturday night. We needn't have worried as the hotel had already booked a table at their restaurant. The receptionist then showed us to our very spacious room on the first floor at the back of the hotel with it's own balcony area (room 3).The room was well furnished and included a free-standing fire pot with a flue to the outside. Probably just the thing during the depths of winter. The bathroom was clean with complimentary toiletries, sewing kit etc. It also had a good, high power shower. There were also bathrobes, a good selection of towels and an ironing board with iron. This room would make a great base for a longer break.
Downstairs is the bar and two dining/restaurant areas.
The bar is great and obviously a draw for then locals. It was pretty busy when we were there but not so busy that getting a drink was a problem. The service in the bar and in the restaurant was excellent and friendly.
There is some seating outside with fantastic views of the harbour and loch.
We had dinner in the restaurant with both of us making use of the locally sourced fish and seafood. I had the monkfish for my main course and it was done to perfection.
Breakfast was included in the booking. We both had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. Again, this was superb, probably some of the best smoked salmon I've had.
