We spent Easter weekend at The Pool House in the Whimbrel room or Boat house as it is sometimes known. This was a bit of a treat for us and we wouldn't normally spend quite as much on a weekend away. However, The Pool House really did feel like it was worth every penny!
The hotel is perfectly placed next to Loch Ewe and I can honestly say I have never experienced such beauty in a location. It was simply perfect with the loch still and peaceful with lots of bird life on and around the water. It felt like we were given exclusive rights to one of the most beautiful spots in Scotland.
The accommodation itself was very well appointed, the bed wonderfully grand and comfortable and the bathroom quite stunning with a deep, luxurious under lit bath. We specifically chose the Whimbrel room for the secluded hot tub from which there are amazing views out over the water. What better way to relax aching limbs after a day walking round Loch Kernsary with a glass of wine in a hot tub?!
Speaking of which, the walk round Loch Kernsary is well worth doing. It's a circular route, suitable for novice walkers and at about 7 miles can be done in around 3 hours - or 4 hours with a couple of picnic stops! Again, the Loch and mountain views really are spectacular and there are are also some very friendly horses about half way round.
Breakfast was of the quality you would expect from this standard of hotel. We can vouch for the full Scottish (exceptional locally produced black pudding and haggis!) and smoked haddock with poached egg and a herb and lemon butter which were mouthwateringly good!
Peter, the host was chatty and knowledgeable but not intrusive and it's worth mentioning the whole family were extremely welcoming during our stay. They even gave us an Easter egg!
We would definitely both give the Pool House a big thumbs up and hope to visit again some day.
