Good Hotel Guide Review

A Victorian remodelling of an 18th-century inn, this stone mansion stands tall in a ‘beautiful situation’, with views of Ben Nevis and lawns stretching to the shore of Loch Shiel. It is owned by Jane MacFarlane; Manja and Duncan Gibson have been resident managers for the better part of two decades. Come in to Jacobite-themed paintings on pine-panelled walls; ‘in all the public rooms, roaring log fires, even at the end of May, add to the warmth and comfort of the place’. ‘Comfortably furnished’ loch- or garden-view bedrooms are made welcoming with fresh flowers and a fruit bowl. No room key is offered (‘though there was no hesitation providing one when we asked for it’) – imagine you’re staying with friends. ‘Our Jacobean Suite had a high four-poster bed; in the bathroom, a separate shower and bath, all nicely finished.’ In the restaurant, Duncan Gibson cooks ‘superb’ Scottish recipes with French flair – perhaps roast Lochaber lamb, potato gratin, young leeks. Another day, pull up at the bar, where the menu has ‘good choices – some plain, some fancy, all excellent’. A fine base for the western Highlands; spot golden eagles and red deer from a cruise on the loch. (LW, A and EW)

Guest comments

'The strengths of this hotel are its beautiful location and the welcoming public rooms with log fires. Small family room. The cooked breakfast is wonderful. ' - Debora Paterson - June, 2016
'Beautiful situation. Bedroom and bathroom nicely furnished. Very good bar meals - quality of food excellent; choice of plain and fancy cooking. No TV in bedrooms and you must ask for a key. ' - Lynn Wildgoose - May, 2016
'Our second visit. We stayed in two rooms. Both were fine. The double had a great bathroom with an enormous spa bath and underfloor heating. The food was excellent. Though it was the end of May, there were roaring fires in all the public rooms, which added to the warmth and comfort. ' - Alan & Edwina Williams - May, 2014
