Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Hurray! This is how a good hotel should be,’ crow Guide inspectors in 2016. ‘You immediately feel, as you walk in the door, that they’re keen to make you feel at home.’ Sally and David Ruthven-Fox’s stone house is in remote countryside on the shores of Loch Sunart. ‘Everything is beautifully presented; there are fresh flowers everywhere.’ ‘Paul Arcari, the manager, greeted us and showed us around; the next day, he shook our hands before we left.’ Choose among ‘smart, well-furnished’ bedrooms overlooking loch or garden – one opens on to a private balcony. ‘Ours had a large bed covered in cushions; fluffy towels and lovely toiletries in the bathroom. After dinner, they brought us a Thermos of fresh milk, ready for the morning.’ In the restaurant, chef Gary Phillips’s ‘fancy’, ‘impeccably served’ menus might include ‘excellent lamb cutlets and venison’ (‘shame there wasn’t more variety from one day to the next’). Informal meals are taken in the brasserie. Come morning, tuck in to an ‘extensive’ breakfast, then step aboard the vintage Dunkirk ‘little ship’ for a wildlife trip on the loch.
