““I certainly wouldn't wish this place to anyone””
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

I only managed to stay here one night and left the next day and found alternative accommodation elsewhere. I found it disgraceful that this place could call itself a hotel does not pride itself in anything. When l read the dining room menu l had a feeling of Déjà vu the menu was a near word for word copy of another restaurant in Oban called Ee-usk the only reason is that we dinned there two days before no imagination chef could not have been able to think for himself if he could not write a menu of his own. We heard nothing but sectarian remarks from staff who where obviously anti-catholic this was very shameful, we told the story to another proprietor of a local business who informed us that staff had in the past do a runner as they thought they where going to end up like the wicker man. If visiting these islands again heaven forbid avoid this hotel at all costs.

The decor is shocking, and the hotel seriously needs investment. However, the food was fine when we visited - possibly better than expected, although let down by desert. My daughter had a hotdog (2 yrs old) and called it 'Dog Food'.....! Maybe she wasn't far off the mark however will give it a second chance next year!

We stayed for two nights earlier this week. The room we were allocated was really nice with a fantastic view over the harbour and an even better one from the en suit bathroom. All the meals we had for dinner were really nice and good value for money.The reakfasts were above average and the service nice and relaxed but efficient too. It is true that the outside of the premises looks a bit tatty but as we arrived in a massive downpour we were just happy to get out of the rain. The bar area is interesting as a lot of the locals seem to practically live here. The language can be a bit choice but it is worth remembering that the local population tend to work hard and play hard too.If it all get's a bit much there is a residents lounge upstairs where the odd sundowner can be guzzled in relative peace.The manageress (Fiona) works crazy hours and is happy to help with any queries. I would definately go back again.

Room Tip: Room no 1 is excellent

Stayed in Scarinish and was hoping to enjoy a few drinks in the bar in the evening. Bar very scrappy and bar staff very unfriendly. Go to The Lodge Hotel instead

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on the 29/30 may, 2012 . It was very homely, clean and cosy. The food was excellent. Would recomend to anyone. Very friendly and helpful staff.
The manager was on hand all the time.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number one, it was nice and cosy.
