Just spent 2 lovely nights at this gem of a hotel conveniently placed for touring Argyle, Ardnamurchan, Lochaber and the Inner Hebrides. We stayed in a Captains Double room that is spacious and well proportioned with great views of Loch Linnhe. Good Covid protocols in place that everyone adhered to ensuring peace and enjoyment for all residents. Staff in the bar and the restaurant were exceptionally helpful adding to a great experience, particularly when enjoying a few moments of sun on the Drinks Terrace. One small gripe was the mussels we had while really fresh, were a bit over cooked and the prawns were drowned in garlic oil, a lighter touch would have been our preference. Other meals we had were excellent with well sourced local ingredients. The swimming pool is operated on limited number of patrons basis which I think helped make it safer but more enjoyable.

This review is based on the restaurant as we were not staying at the hotel at this time. Our party first ate here on my wife’s birthday, 14/6, and we were all impressed with our food choices. The quality, quantity & service here is to a very high standard. We returned here on 17/6 without booking this time and we were accommodated and treated to another excellent dining experience. Finally a big thank you to our maitre de, Gabriel “Gabi” who looked after us on both occasions and is a first class ambassador for the restaurant and hotel in general.

Stayed here for 3 nights with another 3 couples. Covid measures are good here and check in was quick and efficient. We stayed in room 4 and the views over the Loch are stunning. Room was clean and tidy and with current measures room wasn't cleaned, but just ask at reception for anything you needed and they got it for you. Food was gorgeous both for dinner and breakfast and staff very friendly. Walking path beside hotel let's you go a wander to Ballachulish very easily. There are also lodges with hot tubs which we will book next time. This hotel is definitely worth a stay.

Absolutely beautiful. Spotlessly clean, stunning location and great service. Although the weather was overcast, the staff enthusiasm and attention to detail made up for it. Very good and extensive menu offered something for everyone, but the fresh local seafood takes centre stage

This was excellent - the food was great and waiters are really kind. I would put this as one of the BEST meals ever. The food came really quickly and was extremely delicious. Everyone was so polite and the atmosphere was great. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone I know.
