Good Hotel Guide Review
Friendly, folksy, ‘comfy and unpretentious’, Gill and Archie MacLellan’s ‘terrific inn’ stands in ‘a glorious location’ on the shores of Loch Fyne. A log fire, ‘two chummy dogs’ and a wide range of malt whiskies are within. (Look out, too, for trophies won by the local shinty team, whose players have adopted the bar as their unofficial clubhouse.) Guide readers praise the ‘affable staff’ and ‘all-round positive experience’. ‘We went on a dreich – as they say in Scotland – winter afternoon, and the welcome couldn’t have been warmer: tea and cake were instantly produced, at no charge.’ Many of the bedrooms (some a touch old-fashioned) have ‘stunning views’ over the water. Choose wisely: ‘My comfortable loch-view room also came with noise from the busy road out front.’ The residents’ lounge on the first floor is a ‘very nice retreat’, with a view that’s ‘especially fine at sunset’. In the informal bistro, the cooking is, ‘on the whole, very good’. ‘I had an excellent meal: Loch Fyne scallops with black pudding; sea bass fillet and garlicky potatoes; a seriously good Pouilly-Fumé.’ Breakfast is a more straightforward affair, accompanied by a ‘strong coffee’.
