Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A more beautiful setting than this peaceful bay could hardly be wished for.’ Next to the exotic Arduaine Garden, on the ‘magical’ Argyll coast, Calum and Rachel Ross’s dog-friendly country hotel is a ‘welcoming, good-value’ spot. Sea views are the main feature throughout. Evenings may be spent watching the sun set over the Slate Islands, part of the Inner Hebrides, perhaps with a ‘really good’ pre-prandial gin and tonic in hand. ‘Warm, comfortable’ bedrooms are spread across the main house and a ‘well-soundproofed’ annexe; all rooms enjoy the view. ‘Our annexe room (somewhat outdated) had a nice big bed; plenty of storage; lots of hot water in the bathroom.’ Fresh towels and treats are provided for canine companions. Five more rooms have been added during an extensive renovation this year, but some things are fine just as they are; a window table in the restaurant lets you watch light change over dinner. New chef Roger Brown may serve Gigha halibut, cassoulet, bacon dust, roast pistachio crust, or perhaps freshly landed langoustines, lobster or crab. In the morning, the ‘wee breakfast’ is not so wee, but ‘well cooked and efficiently served’.
