Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Old-fashioned in the best way’, the Harrison family’s ‘lovely, eclectic guest house’ on the shores of Loch Ewe is run by ‘friendly, informative hosts who make a real effort to ensure every guest is taken care of’. ‘Sisters Elizabeth and Mhairi are welcoming and obliging; their father, Peter, is full of interesting stories,’ say Guide inspectors in 2017, who were plied with leaf tea and cake by the drawing room fire. The 18th-century fishing lodge has ‘an extraordinary history’; ‘family photographs nearly a century old’ sit well with a dining room decorated to a maritime theme. Each singular suite has views across the water. ‘The walls and curtains in our suite had stars trailing up them and on to the ceiling. The fire had been lit in our sitting room; seats, and binoculars, in the bay window took in great views of the loch. The four-poster bed was enormous; the bathroom, an Edwardian masterpiece.’ After canapés, a ‘well-curated set dinner’ might include ‘beautifully presented chicken with Parma ham’ and an ‘utterly delicious’ Granny Smith sorbet. (‘They impressively catered for a host of dietary restrictions, too.’) At breakfast: ‘tasty mushrooms on toast’; ‘a perfect sausage’.

'A family owned and run hotel that surpasses all expectations. They have created an oasis on the wild coast of Scotland. Their passion and commitment is evident in every aspect. The house is comfortable and eclectic. The views are amazing. The food was a highlight of our trip. Dinner was beautifully prepared; breakfast menu extensive and creative . ' - - April, 2016
