We have been thinking about visiting this hotel for some time and my husband's birthday seemed an ideal opportunity. We were definitely not disappointed. Keith and Christine made us feel very welcome and made sure we had everything we needed to make our weekend special. We particularly appreciated their 'low key' approach to our celebrations as requested! The room, the...

Just home from a two night stay, it was our first time in this part of the world. My hubby was running the Kyles 10 miles on Saturday so we decided to make a weekend of it. We had a warm welcome after a horrendous drive from Glasgow in awful weather and traffic. We were shown around and then to...

We visited the Royal for our anniversary this August and can't fault it. The setting is stunning, set right on the shore front with views over to Bute. We opted for a sea view room, which was well worth the small additional charge, especially as we managed to time our stay for the sunniest three days of an otherwise gloomy...

Another lovely review, I must say the staff did look at me rather funny when I came out with the number "2" birthday candle for your cheese board, until of course I explained it was you 2nd Anniversary.

WOW! Thank you for such a lovely review.

They call it Scotland’s Secret Coast and there is no better place to enjoy it than to stay in Tighnabruaich. My wife and I visited the Royal An Lachan at the weekend and, although they were busy, we were given a warm and friendly welcome by the owners, who seem to be very “hands on” and intermingle well with the...

Thank you for such a lovely yet concise review.

Thank you for taking time to write a review in our defence, it is a sad world that when people do not get their own way, they respond by dramatising the whole event and writing these types of review. If you were to look through the odd poor review that we have, they generally stem from the customer not getting...

As you arrive the magical waterside setting will take your breath away. If you enjoy supremely fresh seafood, comfortable rooms with stunning views, great individual hospitality and an area with fabulous seascapes with an island feel your stay at The Royal an Lochan will leave nothing to be desired.
