Good Hotel Guide Review

The surroundings are vast: well-kept lawns lead to thick woodland; there are waterfalls, a tumbling burn, an old Victorian trout pond and a private beach. Inside this pretty Victorian hunting lodge, however, things shrink down to a human scale, as hosts Laurence and Katie Mackay create a ‘house-party atmosphere’, encouraging guests to mingle over drinks and nibbles in one of the ‘charming’ sitting rooms. Come dinnertime, new chef Michael Scotford serves an extensive menu focusing on Scottish produce: try island seafood terrine, Scottish pork belly; Loch Awe sea trout, seared kale, beurre blanc. Bedrooms, each with its own style, are traditionally decorated with touches of countryside florals; book one with views over the garden and loch. In the morning, wake to breakfast choices including a full Scottish, Loch Fyne kippers and locally smoked haddock, then head out to explore. Ask about ranger-accompanied forest wildlife walks – the white-tailed Mull eagles are a sight to see. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'A wonderful and special place from which to enjoy this magical island. Its remoteness brings challenges (no mobile signal). Its success is due to the warmth, local knowledge and enthusiasm of the owners Vey good food with an emphasis on local ingredients Our bedroom had everything we could wish for. ' - David Birnie - August, 2017
'Laurence was an excellent host. The setting is stunning, particularly if you want to get away from it all. The hotel and grounds are beautiful. Dinner was good - though not cheap. ' - Diana Goodey - June, 2017
'This gem of a hotel has a beautiful situation.The owners are exceptionally helpful - chatty without being intrusive - and the hotel has the atmosphere of a relaxed country house. The meals are high quality. My one comment would be that the menu could perhpas be more varied but when we commented one night that mussels hadnt been on offer they duly (and deliciously) appeared the following evening. The breakfast has black pudding to die for. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable. The mobile signal is weak and the wifi only works in the main hotel, and is weak at busy times - but that helped us really get away from it all. ' - Caroline Thomson - May, 2017
'Lawrence and Kate welcomed us for our seventh visit with grace and enthusiasm. The hotel improves every time we visit and their continual upgrading, decorating and changing provides perfection. The food was very imaginative, with a new menu each night, and now light lunches for those who just wish to relax in the wonderful garden and admire the otters and eagles. ' - Dr Gillian Todd - October, 2016
