Good Hotel Guide Review

Overlooking a bay on the Argyll coast, Calum and Rachel Ross’s ‘friendly, good-value’ country house, next door to the exotic Arduaine Garden, is in ‘the most stunning spot’. ‘There’s something magical about the light, at all times and in all weathers.’ In the bedrooms, the sea views are the main feature. ‘Our annexe room was clean and well kept, warm and comfortable (the decor could have done with some updating, though). There was plenty of storage space; the bathroom, small but adequate, had soft towels and plenty of hot water.’ Watch the light fade around the islands over home-made canapés and pre-dinner drinks (perhaps ‘really good’ Crinan gin or Loch Fyne beer). At dinner, chef Roger Brown’s ‘tasty and beautifully presented’ dishes might include guinea fowl with a ‘delicious’ risotto; ‘masses of local cheeses’; a lemon dessert, ‘light and perfect for the end of the meal’. ‘Breakfast was well cooked and efficiently served. I had the “wee breakfast” – what I’d call a “full Scottish”!’ Fido’s not forgotten: there are dog-friendly ground-floor rooms; the coast is nearby.

Guest comments

'A peaceful setting. Lots to do in the area. Our light room had plenty of storage. Good-sized bthroom but feeble shower. ' - Margaret Wall - May, 2012
'A lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings. The staff are friendly and efficient, and the food is excellent in both the dining room and bistro. The peace and quiet in this lovely location is the perfect chill out. They have Highland cattle, ducks and hens to keep little ones interested, and nice walks in the grounds. ' - Andrea McLellan - July, 2011
