“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

We went as a group of four and we all had the seafood platter. Delicious. Everything was faultless. We also went for drinks over several nights, the bar staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. They gave us all kinds of information about the local area. I would definitely go back.

just back for a 1 night stay at the Holly tree. Fantastic place to break your journey.Beatiful views. Large comfortable,modern room (we were in one of the captains rooms). The pool area was nice and relaxing being able to have a swim after a long drive. Dinner in the restaurant was very good.We will definately stay again.

It was away from the main road, makes it ideal getaway. There was 11 of us and there was enough space for us to move around. Staff at the holly tree hotel was very helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend it to anyone.

We were warmly welcomed by the reception staff and given a quick tour of the facilities including the pool and although our room didn't have a balcony we had a stunning view over the loch. The rooms were modern, spacious and clean which gave a very good impression. Once over the initial getting in and settled we headed for the bar, the staff were really friendly and by the end of our 6 night stay knew and remembered what drinks we preferred. The food was amazing, there wasn't one night were either of us managed to eat a full 3 course meal the food was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented, we chose to eat in the bar the last couple of night as the slightly more relaxed style of food suited us better. The hotel is situated not far from loads of good walks and glencoe so we spent most of our morning walking up mountains and the afternoons in the pool. Be warned though, the temprature of the pool is a little cool for some.

We both had an amazing time at this hotel and are planning on coming back in May

Room Tip: all the rooms that face the loch have stunning views, however if staying out of season don't bot...

From arrival to departure of our 'honeymoon' we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Friendly, helpful and cheerful staff along with an amazing hotel and excellent food menu covering every mouthwatering experience you could want especially the seafood dish. The array of local beverages was also divine.
We spent our days exploring the surrounding areas happy that returning here and having a sauna and swim, was the icing on the cake each day. We are booking our anniversary here this year, without a doubt and we cannot wait to return to Scotland.

We were wonderfully suprised when we arrived with the views across the loch.

We had a Captains room with balcony and the room was lovely and clean. A large room with a large bathroom, with bath and shower.

You could spend all day looking at the view.

Had a meal in the evening, my wife had the Seafood rendezvous which she said was lovely.
I had the steak which again was cooked to perfection.

The staff in the restaurant were very helpful, with the seafood dish. My wife had never eaten oysters before or opened up langoustines. The staff helped her how to do it and she said it was delicious,

The rooms were quiet, with hardly any noise from outside.

Breakfast was good apart from two things. The bacon was anemic and the mushrooms were like tinned mushrooms and fried. They may not have been. The rest of the breakfast was good, the eggs being really tasty.

I would recommend this hotel for other people.

The swimming pool area was nice and clean. The sauna was nice , not too hot.

There are 2 single changing cubicles with lockers outside.

Room Tip: If you can the Captains room with balcony is excellent.

My fiance took me away for my birthday. Our room was lovely, nicely decorated, spacious with a balcony overlooking the loch. Fab bath! Food in restaurant was superb and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The only negative we encountered was in the pool and spa. There were unsupervised children playing which would not be a problem apart from the constant shouting and screeching and jumping into the pool. They made it difficult to enjoy a relaxing swim. The other downside was the lights not working overhead in the pool area which left us with too little light to dress by.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and we will go back
