Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Outstanding cooking’ and an impressive collection of rare whiskies attract visitors to Andrew and Rosaline Ryan’s ‘hospitable’ small hotel at the top of the Kintyre peninsula. The 18th-century coaching inn overlooks the loch from which it takes its name; many of the simple bedrooms have views across the water. ‘Ours, at the front with a road and loch view (and some night-time traffic noise), was small and straightforward, with a comfortable bed and a tiny but clean bathroom. All right for an overnight stop,’ report trusted Guide correspondents this year. The decor in the public areas may be ‘a step back in time’, but the food cooked by chef Ross Payne – ‘a fine chef’ – is wholly of the moment: langoustines with the ‘tastiest’ black pudding; ‘superlative’ sea bass and spicy rice. Close to the ferry dock. 1 mile from village.
