Good Hotel Guide Review

There’s a touch of magic and romance on the ‘idyllic’ shores of Loch Shiel, where stands the MacFarlane family’s ‘lovely, traditional’ hotel. It is well managed by Manja and Duncan Gibson. Bedrooms are ‘comfortably furnished’, and have original fittings. Garden-view rooms have an ‘enormous’ spa bath, underfloor heating. ‘As returning guests, we were welcomed with chocolates and a handwritten note – a nice touch.’ ‘The atmosphere is akin to staying in a friend’s Highland home,’ say the hosts, so no room keys, televisions, telephones. (‘We asked for a key, though, and there was no hesitation providing one.’) ‘Roaring’ log fires contribute to ‘the warmth and comfort of the place’; fresh flowers and Jacobite-themed paintings add colour. In the bar and restaurant, classically trained chef Duncan Gibson brings a French twist to the ‘excellent’ Scottish menu (‘some superb daily specials’). Try a ‘hot pot’ of traditional haggis; vegetarian haggis comes with clapshot (mashed potatoes and turnips with chive). Young guests are welcomed: there are children’s menus and indoor and outdoor play areas. (A and EW, Lynn Wildgoose)

Guest comments

'The strengths of this hotel are its beautiful location and the welcoming public rooms with log fires. Small family room. The cooked breakfast is wonderful. ' - Debora Paterson - June, 2016
'Beautiful situation. Bedroom and bathroom nicely furnished. Very good bar meals - quality of food excellent; choice of plain and fancy cooking. No TV in bedrooms and you must ask for a key. ' - Lynn Wildgoose - May, 2016
'Our second visit. We stayed in two rooms. Both were fine. The double had a great bathroom with an enormous spa bath and underfloor heating. The food was excellent. Though it was the end of May, there were roaring fires in all the public rooms, which added to the warmth and comfort. ' - Alan & Edwina Williams - May, 2014
