Good Hotel Guide Review
At the head of Loch Shiel, ‘friendly, attentive’ hosts Ina and Kieron Kelly ably continue the tradition of this former coaching inn, where 17th-century travellers stopped in along the Road to the Isles. Traditionally decorated bedrooms are all on the first floor, under sloped ceilings; the best, with a Jacobean four-poster bed, is equipped with bathrobes, fresh flowers, a decanter of whisky mac. Book ahead to dine on Kieron’s six-course fixed menu in the panelled restaurant; his dishes highlight locally sourced seasonal ingredients such as fish and shellfish from the boats at Mallaig, and beef from Highland butchers. Simpler fare is found in the Stage House Bistro, a 1980s extension overlooking a burn.
