4/5 Good

Potentially much better.
Two main observations. Firstly, the hotel is very tired snd needs a good spruce up. The entrance is very uninviting, drab decor and lacking a welcome. Weeds at the door step would be easily removed. This theme is repeated throughout, and although the room was acceptable, again there are many little things which could be easily rectified - hook on back of shower room door, waterproof seal at the front of the shower, door that doesnt close properly. A handyman / gardener for 2 or 3 dats a week would make a big difference. On the other hand, the food was excellent, especially the seafood - langoustines, scallops to due for, and very tasty kippers for breakfast. Covid has obviously made things difficult, but this hotel, in the centre of magnificent and interesting landscapes has the potential to be something far more special.

First the good bits - food was really good, staff were lovely and it’s in a great location for the North part of Ardnamurchan. Hotel needs some work, bed had no valance sheet, room door stuck, shower was scalding hot, kettle in room was broken, served cold tea with breakfast, one socket in the room, room was unbearably hot with heating on. Certainly not worth the room rate and way behind some of the B&B’s
