Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Log fires were burning in the bar and residents’ lounge when we arrived on a miserable day,’ write readers this year, of a visit to this ‘very efficiently run’ hotel on the Loch Linnhe shoreline, now owned by a distinguished hotelier, Gordon Campbell Gray. ‘The atmosphere is relaxed,’ report Guide regulars in 2018, ‘yet the service is attentive and professional. The ‘spacious’ bedrooms, contemporary in style, are supplied with a luxury mattress, shortbread, Scottish toiletries. ‘In the light and airy restaurant, with a fabulous view towards Lismore and other islands’, chef Sergejs Savickis ‘has maintained the high standards the hotel is known for. His seafood dishes are impeccable; subtle and intense flavours beautifully balanced. We particularly liked a starter of West Coast scallops and a main of pan-seared rainbow trout.’ Breakfast brings freshly baked croissants, Inverawe smoked salmon, home-made jams. ‘We will return.’ (GC, Andy and Sylvia Aitken)

Guest comments

'We loved our stay. The hotel is a magic place, relaxed and friendly, the staff are welcoming. It is famous for its fish restaurant. Some of the fish comes straight from the sea ten metres away! We chose their shellfish platters - really delicious. Quiet, middle-of-the-road music in the background,was hardly noticeable as there was a real buzz in the restaurant. Our room had a wonderful sea view, a comprehensive information folder. The bathroom was small but efficient. Everything was clean and well-maintained. ' - JT - March, 2019
