Enjoyable short stay. We were the only guests due to it being off season, but we were made most welcome. Minor defects in decoration and some indications of work in progress but nothing to affect our stay. Room (4) was well equipped and had a splendid view, staff helpful and friendly, food good!

The Gigha Hotel steps back into history. The main building is around 400 years old, built as a inn for cattle drovers. The rooms were clean, large enough and quite, given there is a bar in the hotel. The staff is wonderful, almost like staying with family. There are no bad views on Gigha, so any room should have a...

We had a fabulous four-night stay at Gigha Hotel! Our rooms (one single, one twin) were spacious, clean, cosy, comfortable and very well serviced. All hotel staff were welcoming, approachable, accommodating and helpful at all times. All meals were excellent- we had breakfasts & evening meals in the lovely dining room and a lunch one day in the bright Bistro...

We were treated to a very relaxing stay at the Gigha Hotel, from the warm welcome at reception to the amazing food in the restaurant .Everyone was friendly and knowledgable. The bar had a welcoming feel with friendly banter.

I took my husband here as it was a place he talked about with great affection as he worked there for a summer in the late 70s. We caught the ferry on a wonderful day, and the moment we landed on the island we started walking up to the hotel and helped ourselves to the brambles that were growing on...

Family room was ideal with double bed and bunk beds with beautiful view out the front. We were on Gigha on a particularly miserable weekend weather wise so the room was a good sanctuary. There was however a distinct lack of warmth from the staff. Very limited interest and interaction, and during check-out no conversation whatsover - not even to...

We had been in our camper van but severe wind and rain meant we were looking for warm, dry accommodation for a night. Despite staff admitting that they did have accommodation in one of their nearby cottages that suited our needs they were unwilling put linen on the beds and switch the electricity on!! It's fair to say that we...

Well if you come to camp in Scotland the weather can change things, and as Gigha is an Isle it can get all t5he seasons in one day. However you can not publish a review of the Hotel or the IGHT cottage as you did not stay at any of them. So you are well out of order. RE: staff...

We visited the Island of Gigha to visit where my husband's ancestral clan originated. We were greeted by wonderful welcoming people who appreciated these Americans going out of their way to visit. The bar of the hotel is the social center and we were able to meet and share a few "nips" with them. The restaurant offered meals so was...

Walk the main road but also the tracks off it. Also speak to reception at the hotel as they have a map of lots of other small paths that will take you to secluded beaches, caves and Viking graveyards.
