Good Hotel Guide Review

Take a breathtaking drive through Glencoe to this former ferry inn (Relais & Châteaux) on Loch Linnhe, with the Morvern mountains beyond. Shaun and Jenny McKivragan were guests here in 2002, and so loved the place that they bought it. The white-painted building stands in a ‘gorgeous’ setting with wide views of the peaceful surroundings. Inside, smartly dressed staff, though ‘very pleasant’, add to the ‘rather formal’ atmosphere. Enter through the conservatory, its vista stretching over the loch; further in, find log fires, books, fresh flowers and a mix of antiques and contemporary pieces in the lounges. Recently redecorated bedrooms are kitted out with iced water in silver jugs, a decanter of Whisky Mac, swanky toiletries, top-end bedlinen; most overlook the water. At dinner, new chef Chris Stanley’s ‘beautifully’ presented dishes – perhaps stone bass, truffle, Pink Fir Apple potatoes, wild leek – are served with ceremony. There’s an ‘impressive’ menu at breakfast, including porridge ‘and a wee dram’. In-room massages are offered, but the greatest tonic is the fresh air (bikes, wellies and packed lunches available). (J and MB, and others). This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

'What a great Hotel! Beautiful location. Small and personal. Quality all the way through our two-night stay. Great attention to detail by all the staff, so professional and charming. Faultless performance from the head chef. Not cheap but worth every penny! Nice touches like tea delivered to room in the morning, with juice at no extra cost. Also colimentary newspaper of your choice. ' - Ian Dewey - October, 2013
'Stunning location with views of the loch and mountains behind. Our bedroom was beautifully furnished with large TV/DVD, and the hotel has a over 150 DVDsto choose from. Soft bathrobes welcome you from the shower and luxury toiletries add to the experience. The hotel has two delightful lounges both with a real log fire. We spent a perfect afternoon sitting next to one, reading a book after a long walk. Dinner was a highlight of our stay. The tasting menu was divine. ' - George Potter - February, 2013
