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 Nick and Nikki Horne’s ‘very efficiently run’ hotel on the Loch Linnhe shoreline. ‘The atmosphere is relaxed,’ report Guide regulars in 2018, ‘yet the service is attentive and professional. The owner was much in evidence and very approachable.’ 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)
