On the long gravel drive down to the hotel we were filled with excitement to be staying at this grande dame on the Loch. The location does not disappoint, a beautiful imposing building set on the side of Loch Awe. The interior of the hotel (downstairs, in the communal areas) are grand but fraying. There are wonderful views from the drawing room, assuming you get the one sofa that overlooks the loch.

As soon as one embarks along the hallway towards the living quarters, the smell envelopes you, a bit like diving into Aunt Maud’s musty handbag. It’s a big place so we still kept hoping, but room was a chintzy overcrowded disappointment, with brown bath water, which is simply to be endured. The food in the restaurant was good, as was the service. Mineral water is a must. Brown is just about manageable to bath in but not to drink. Unless the place gets a major refurb, we wouldn’t return. For the price, we preferred the Kilchrennan Inn.

Room tip: Bring your own water

We came across Ardanaiseig by chance 8 years ago now (through a Groupon deal of all things) and have returned at least once a year since, including having held our wedding there four years ago. The hotel has been through a lot of changes over the years, particularly when it comes to management, and at times its future has looked uncertain as good management couldn’t be found. I’m so glad to say that, in the hands of Christine and David, Ardanaiseig appears to be flourishing, even in these uncertain times. We visited last week to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary and our daughter’s first birthday and were made as welcome and comfortable as ever, despite all the restrictions that are sadly necessary at the moment. The food both nights was great, as was our breakfast, and nothing was too much to ask of the brilliant staff. Thank you again to Christine, David, Gary, Maxine and Carrie for looking after us. We really consider Ardanaiseig our home from home and we look forward to coming back as soon as restrictions allow.

We are just back from a lovely 2 night break at Ardanaiseig. We had stayed here 4 years ago, and had loved it then. It is quirky and original. Similar to a previous review, we had no hot water, but that was quickly resolved by the friendly and helpful staff. With quite a few of the rooms being empty, because of the covid travel restraints, the water had quite a way to go to get to our room. The 2 dinners that we had were excellent, as were the views from the bar that was set up as a mini dining room for the few guests that were staying. We have already booked for a Spring break, and are really looking forward to it.

Room tip: Loch view rooms are worth the extra for the views

We had a voucher for B/B and 3 course dinner and hot cider on arrival, which was good value but I would not pay full price. Staff very friendly and welcoming, room was nice cosy and comfortable but when we went to have shower could not get hot water at 5pm. Not good. All covid rules in place and we felt safe. Dinner was advertised as 2 rosette fine dinning but unfortunately it was far from that and very disappointing as that was the reason we chose to go. Breakfast was fine but still not for a hotel advertising 2 rosettes. Surrounding area lovely. We won’t be back sorry.

Stayed for 2 nights late October with our dogs. Lovely welcome with winter warmer drink brought to room and Hayfield room was great. Yes it is an older hotel with antique furniture and this all adds to the ambience. Dinner fantastic and breakfast perfect. Views and walks ideal and out in a rainy day coming back to warm welcoming hotel was wonderful. Very dog friendly although not over the top e.g. not allowed in dining room or bar. Look forward to returning.
