Good Hotel Guide Review

Eddrachilles Hotel is currently closed. It plans to re-open in April 2021. This ‘ideally situated’ hotel, which offers shoreside views of Badcall Bay, with its bobbing fishing boats, and Quinag mountain beyond, continues to win warm praise from readers. The 18th-century house stands in one of Europe’s last great wildernesses, almost beyond the reach of a phone signal, so switch off and relax. Guests love the personal attention from owners Fiona and Richard Trevor. ‘Everyone, young and old, was made to feel very welcome,’ wrote one after a family celebration. There are six sea-facing bedrooms, while four overlook a courtyard garden. They are traditionally furnished and supplied with good Scottish toiletries. ‘Our bedroom offered a comfortable bed and everything we, as outdoor people, needed,’ a trusted correspondent told us. The lounge/bar and restaurant are, similarly, bigger on comfort than style. There is ‘a lovely conservatory area where afternoon cakes were served at no extra charge’. Evening meals offered ‘great locally sourced food’. As we go to press the hotel is between chefs, but we expect continuity, not change.
