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)

Guest comments

'Beautifully situated hotel on the shores of Loch Linnhe; frequent activity on and around the pier doesn’t disturb the peace and quiet of this stunning location. It has a relaxed atmosphere, yet the service provided by the young and enthusiastic staff is professional. Owner Nikki Horne was much in evidence and very approachable. We had a sea-facing double, well appointed and comfortable. Chef Sergejs Savickis is known for his impeccable seafood dishes, all beautifully presented. ' - Andy and Sylvia Aitken - May, 2018
'The staff are very friendly. An efficiently run hotel. A fire was burning in the lounge when we arrived on a miserable day. The bedrooms are spacious. The restaurant is light and airy, with a fabulous view. We ate a wide variety of fish and seafood, all nicely cooked and very enjoyable. ' - GC - May, 2017
'The bedrooms were beautifully appointed; there are modern large shower rooms. There was even a bird table outside each window to the rear so that the birds could entertain the guests in rooms without a sea view! The staff were exceptionally friendly and professional. My dinner was very nice. I The hotel is beautifully located and reasonably priced. ' - Chris Elliott - September, 2016
