“A Small Step From Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

What do you want when you stay in a rural hotel - outstanding location, great food and great staff. The Taychreggan has all of that. The service was amazing, the food is outstanding.
We would suggest that the dinning room needs a little warmth to provide an environment worthy of the quality of the food.
Otherwise, it's hats off to Nathalie, David, Pippa and Anna.
Fantastic stay

A beautiful location, but with no activities or even places to walk on-site. The hotel is down a 7 mile long unlit single lane road, which would be problematic to drive in the dark.

The lack of a working shower seemed to be a curiosity, rather than a concern for the hotel staff. It remained broken through out our stay. I would not return.

We appreciate your feedback on our hotel and yes your quite right it is a wonderful location, I am so sorry you where unaware that we are at the end of a 7 mile single track unlit road but we feel this is part of the attraction to coming to a lovely remote tranquil location.
We have 40 acres of ground which you can walk in and around, we have clay pigeon shooting, falconry, riffle range all on the grounds which can be book in advance of your stay, I am sorry you where not aware of theses activities at Taychreggan we do advertise them on our web site and also in the compendium in the room folder.
I was unaware that you had a shower problem and l am sorry this was not dealt with immediately by a member of staff, we have had a few minor issues with our new showers and theses has now been rectified.

This is a charming small hotel which was once a cattle drover's inn, but what luxury there is now! The Taychreggan sits on the shore of beautiful Loch Awe, with views across and down the loch. It is located A few miles from Taynuilt and quite near the village of Kilchrenan. It is the sort of place that a couple might love to spend a romantic relaxing week. The food was superb and the staff efficient and friendly. We can't wait to return!

We had a beautiful 2 night stay in this hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable, and we had one with a wonderful loch view. Food at the restaurant is excellent, and the whole hotel is very welcoming, with a lot of free space on ground floor to relax. There is even a good snooker table!

Quite simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in.

The staff are professional, friendly and more importantly pro-active in their approach to customer service which means they always deliver the very best. I have never before felt so relaxed and assured that no matter what happens during my stay it would be taken care of.

The rooms (having stayed twice) are of the highest order in terms of quality and cleanliness. The room views are quite simply spectacular and the photos do not do the location justice. The views alone are worth the room rate.

The 5 course dinner is fantastic, prepared and served to the highest standard in a restaurant that is not stuffy and allows you to eat in, what feels, like the comfort of your own home.

In summary, this hotel must be visited if you come to Scotland. I have stayed in hotels all over the world and none compare to this.

The management and staff are a credit to their profession.

A two night stay as a birthday treat for me on beautiful Loch Awe with wonderful views from various points in the hotel (including the dining room) and surrounding grounds. Friendly efficient staff , with a special mention for Natalie who greeted us on arrival and took us through the reception process so well. Fiona, the manager, also excelled, taking time throughout our stay to have a chat and ensure that we were enjoying our stay. Rooms are well appointed and bed very comfortable. As for the chef, the man is clearly a master of his art. We had the set dinner on both nights and it was nothing short of fabulous. On night one I had possibly the most fantastic lamb I have ever eaten. Portions were manageable and nicely paced throughout the meal with table service efficient but unobtrusive - well done all. Remote it may be but for me that is part of the attraction and this hotel is certainly well worth the effort of getting to. It is an excellent place and I look forward to returning in the future.

The hotel is located at the end of the road and exudes a wonderful feeling of remoteness. The view onto Loch Awe is inspiring, especially offering spectacular sunset. It is a vintage hotel with all the flair and charm and some drawbacks. The room (Suite) was spacious and the bed comfortable. The bathroom (one thing we are sensitive about) was clean and well cared for. The water pressure was just about adequate. One of the features of Taychreggan is the excellent cooking. Wifi in the common areas worked well (important for the kids) although this is maybe not what you would be looking for in such a location. Service is professional and friendly. Good value for money activities. We had been guests at the hotel in 2006 and had a great experience, although we can understand some of the mixed reviews. Seven years on, 2013, the hotel is much more welcoming. We would go again.

Room Tip: Great views from the restaurant and lounge.
