We booked in August, and arrived to find the hotel had re-opened under new ownership. The hospitality we received throughout our two day stay was so remarkable, it exceeded expectations right from our reception, by Sarah, through to the time we departed. The personal attention given throughout was a match for the very best of hotels. Barcaldine house is in a very peaceful location. We stayed in a superior room, which was clean, quiet and spacious. The public rooms were also comfortable, clean and pleasant to be in. Of particular note were the comfortable lounges and the elegant billiard room, with a full-sized table. Dining was an exceeding enjoyable experience, with great attention from Michael Riemenschneider, the new owner and chef. Food was all fresh and very professionally cooked and presented by the team, with the dishes set by Michael after he had first fully understood our preferences. This not only applied to dinner, but breakfast too. The new Barcaldine House joins a handful of quality hotels and restaurants that make Oban and North Argyll the seafood capital of the world. We will return.
