Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘a paradise for wildlife, especially birds’, Amanda and Niall Leveson Gower have been hosting guests for 20 years at their ‘handsome’ small hotel. The former shooting lodge stands alone above Langass sea loch, and has views of Ben Eaval. Within its white-painted walls, the atmosphere is relaxed, informal, ‘friendly’. ‘Stylishly decorated’, the main house has a ‘cosy’ bar (stag’s head, wood-burning stove, ‘a traditional feel’), a ‘bright, airy’ dining room and a ‘light, conservatory-like’ sitting room. At every turn, admire ‘fabulous’ views over the ‘pretty’ garden and across the water. Take your pick of bedrooms in the main lodge or in a ‘barn-like’ extension set into the hillside, and reached via a covered walkway. ‘Our spacious hillside bedroom had large, comfy beds and armchairs, fancy throws, rugs on wooden floors; French windows opened on to a little terrace.’ At dinner, Hugh Sawyer, the new chef, focuses on fresh local fish; try the Langass seafood platter – with lobster, for a treat. ‘Angela suggested walks and provided maps’; a favourite is a ‘wonderful’ circuit up Ben Langass, with ‘great views over loch and mountains’.

Guest comments

'Lovely comfortable room in the Lodge, fabulous food : especially the local hand-dived scallops, friendly staff, and magnificent scenery with wonderful wildlife. ' - Philip Bright - May, 2017
'The best stop of our 'grand tour'. A beautiful hillside room with view of loch and garden. Charming staff and wonderful food, Lovely beeaches and scenery. Complete peace. ' - Margaret Wall - May, 2012
'A handsome white-painted sporting lodge with a separate, slightly barn-like, modern extension set into the hillside and linked by a covered walkway and glassed reception lobby. Our ground-floor ‘hillside’ bedroom was spacious, stylishly furnished, with large comfy twin beds and armchairs, wooden floors and rugs, and French windows on to a little terrace with a lovely outlook of garden – and well-stocked children’s play area and hills beyond. A good bathroom. The main house is also stylishly decorated. A cosy bar with a traditional feel and wood-burning stove, a bright, airy dining room and a light, comfy conservatory-like sitting room. Fabulous views across Loch Langass. Dinners were good to very good: excellent ingredients (local fish, meat, etc), sometimes slightly over-worked. Staff were extremely efficient and friendly, and Amanda Leveson Gower was helpful in suggesting walks and providing maps. T ' - S M - August, 0207
