“Fantastic service and hospitality in a perfect setting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were a group of eight people on a touring holiday and booked the Kilinan Hotel not really knowing what to expect. However it's fair to say it exceeded all expectations in terms of a first class menu with well presented food, very comfortable rooms but not least excellent service and hospitality from the owners and special mention must go to Maddie, who was running front of house when we were there, including serving the food, the bar and surprised us all by serving breakfast in the morning. A big thank you Maddie for looking after our group so well, we really appriciated it.

The hotel as mentioned by another reviewer is off the beaten track but this just adds to make it a very special destination. Although we were travelling in a small group the hotel is an ideal venue for couples looking to get away from it all and just enjoy the tranquility of the surroundings.

I would certainly hope to return again and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Thanks once again for making our stay so memorable.

We called in just for coffee and although it was very early in the day, we were given a very warm welcome. Great coffee - and shortbread to go with it - and brought to us with a smile and genuine hospitality. It is a very pleasant hotel in a beautiful unspoilt area and a place we'd love to return to.

Just the most relaxing place to spend your time. Fantastic location, good touring/walking country, lots to do if you can tear yourself away from the hotel and the very hospitable owners/staff, good food and drink. A real, real home from home. Dogs, too!

Room Tip: Just call and ask!

Superb. Totally off the beaten track, totally peaceful and relaxing. Even somewhere like Oban seemed a world away. Loch view room was very comfortable and spacious. Food was absolutely first rate - amongst the best breakfasts I've ever had while my wife rated the continental alternative highly as well. Staff (it's family-owned and run) seemed to genuinely enjoy the job and were always helpful and cheerful.

A minor grouse was a shortage of space to put stuff in the room - drawers had blankets filling them, not enough coat hangers in the wardrobe. But we would certainly be happy to return and would recommend it to anyone.

The welcome we received at the Kilfinan was heartwarming after our 300+ mile motorcycle trip to get here. We only stopped for a two day short break, wish it could have been longer. The Kilfinan is not convenient to get to, but that is a plus point if you want a hotel in a very quiet backwater. it is significant that to date there are no low ranking reviews for this hotel. I suspect that people seeking this hotel out are not the nit picking type or moaning minnies, they would probably give up on travelling down the long single track road. Instead, we accept that due to its location it wont be like a more conventional hotel and that is one of the biggest advantages. We found the atmosphere, the food and the company all to our liking. The only point I have to make as a possible improvement point, would be to better isolate the vent fan noise. We had room No 7, and I note that this has been mentioned before by another reviewer. However, it would not put me off having this room again.

This hotel deserves a category of its own! but in a good way i hasten to add! no tv,no mobiles, the hotels mobile lies in a pint of water on the bar (seriously) the gardens at the rear along with the livestock are a delight and you are free to explore amongst the chickens ducks etc. The welcome is exceptional, very reminiscent of days gone by! The room was enormous, bed extremely comfortable! There is NO noise!!
The road to the hotel is an experience in itself, wildlife abounds (single track passing place road)
The breakfast was lovely, the evening meals (we stayed for 2 nights) was adequate but not spectacular! But to be fair the hotel does not pretend to be other than what it is!
The staff are excellent Madelon was very knowlegable about the area and its history.
The ar is well stocked and it even has a separate lounge area.
Our room overlooked the churchyard which is no problem but some people might not appreciate the dead quiet neighbours!
