Good Hotel Guide Review

Built for a veteran of Culloden and remodelled in Victorian times, Jane MacFarlane’s stone mansion stands in a breathtaking situation on the shores of Loch Shiel, with views of Ben Nevis and the Glenfinnan Monument. Team Gibson – Manja and Duncan – are long-standing manager and chef. On chilly days, log fires blaze in rooms hung with paintings on a Jacobite theme. Bedrooms have no TV, and no key unless requested, which ‘might not suit everyone’, but adds to the house-party ambience. All rooms are supplied with cut flowers and a fruit bowl. Many have views of the loch and of the 1814 Glenfinnan Monument, perhaps a four-poster bed, a whirlpool bath. There are reduced rates for children, who will thrill to visit the Glenfinnan Viaduct of Harry Potter fame, while the hotel’s classically trained wizard works his magic with Inverawe smoked salmon, Glenfinnan Estate venison, Lochaber lamb, 28-day-aged, chargrilled steaks. You can eat in the restaurant or the bar, where residents rub shoulders with locals, perhaps ‘fresh, thick and flaky’ fish and chips; vegetarian haggis, turnip and potato clapshot. A great place, at once ‘down to earth’ and ‘very special’.

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
