Good Hotel Guide Review

The ‘splendid aroma of peat, whisky and leather’ defines this ‘impressive’ Victorian hunting lodge in a ‘glorious setting’ on Loch Gairloch. Guide inspectors in 2017 swooned into the scent, against an oak-panelled backdrop of crackling fires, deep sofas and uncountable bottles of whiskies and gins. ‘The exceptional service, oh-so-cosy bedrooms and richly comfortable styling make this a special, wholly Scottish place. Enchanting, too: the views of cavorting seals.’ Up tartan-carpeted stairs, individually decorated bedrooms look on to loch or garden. ‘We entered our room to a stunning view over the water. There were glorious pillows on the beds; tweed-covered armchairs in the window alcove; shortbread on the hospitality tray; Scottish toiletries and enormous towels in the handsome, panelled bathroom.’ Ask for a seat by the ‘huge picture window’ at dinner – the vista is a fine partner for the daily-changing menus that use home-grown vegetables, and lobster and scallops caught in front of the hotel. ‘Breakfast hit the spot: rich coffee; creamy porridge with maple syrup; beautifully cooked bacon and succulent mushrooms; a perfect potato scone.’
