Absolute gem of a place, we called in on spec & really charming hosts Kate & Inka looked after us so well. We had a lovely candlelit meal , followed by proper homemade steam puddings which were delicious , excellent Malbec with it, little things really set it apart like the hand written menu & fresh flowers on each table It was so lovely we popped back in for breakfast the next morning to have bacon rolls & toast & marmalade & excellent coffee , altogether welcoming clean and cosy, with top quality craft room & hand made crafts next to restaurant Warm and welcoming place run by creative , genuine friendly folk , will go back asap to do a craft course & walk in the stunning ancient oak woods nearby

Great homemade soup and cakes. Kate and all there very friendly. Lovely wool from Kate's own sheep. The whole area is well worth a visit and the Ariundle ancient oak wood is something really special. The moss on the boulders shows how clean the air is.

A very warm welcome from staff who are still actively devoted to spinning - They rear their own sheep and dye their won wool. There are interesting books, local crafts, jams and chutneys for sale. We also had a delicious, freshly bake, scones and very good coffee.

Definitely not a chain hotel. Friendly welcome, honest uncomplicated food, warm beds, and great views. You'll find that your mobile phone doesn't get much signal - but this is a place to get away from stress, get offline, maybe go for a walk or a bike ride or watch some wildlife. Personally, I liked some of the geological history. There's a small craft shop, if you prefer that.

Left my food review separately on the restaurant page. We booked the "purple" family room online. T&Cs stated a deposit was required but no means of payment. An inquiring email went unanswered. Entered the main building and waited a few minutes before seeing the sign saying to go to the bar with inquiries. Found the foreign chef who found an American man. While waiting I noticed in the A4 notebook on the bar that for that day the only guests were "grass cutter man" and worryingly, Family X in "our" Purple room. American seemed puzzled that we were not family X and after confusion about whether there were 2 or 3 of us asked us to wait while the room was prepared and offered us some tea which was very nice. Mrs Overall from Acorn Antiques had our room sorted after a while - a large dorm with capacity for 7 or 8. Three beds were made except one pillow which, oddly, we found on another unmade bed. Floor felt gritty, a landscape poster was falling out its frame on the wall, above eye level cobwebs and spiders, dead and living, were plentiful. Sink, toilet and shower seemed clean enough. It was 6pm or so, windows were wide open but radiators were on full blast and it was uncomfortably hot. Turned 3 of them down but 4th was missing the means to adjust. Being a handy-manny type I knew how to remove the TRV from another radiator to turn this one down. The kitchen looked a bit basic. The fridge had an open packet of mini pork pies and a carton of milk with grass all over it. Something tells me this was owned by "grass cutter man." On checking out, Mrs Overall asked how much we had been asked to pay on our internet booking, seemed to think it sounded right and took payment. All in all, this could be so much nicer, cleaner and professional. I had no faith that the booking system worked and were probably lucky they were not full. We had a comfortable night in the end, and there no other options in the vicinity at a sensible price so I am reasonably happy. Nice food in the restaurant was a definite bonus.

Lovely location and a very welcome selection of cakes and coffee after a long walk. Great to sit outside when the weather is good, but lots of seating inside too. Suspect some staff are volunteers and may not be up to speed with card payments, but definately worth a visit.

We visited the restaurant looking forward to a treat but were so disappointed. The proprietor was most offhand, not at all welcoming. When we looked for a seat we noticed several tables were left uncleared and NONE were cleared while we were there. Only one other family were present while with us. Card payment was not accepted as 'machine not working'. From the attitude we were quite sure this was not true. Has the place changed hands since the good reviews?

Stayed for one night with friends on cycling tour. Owner was unpleasant and uncooperative from the start and like other reviews she had to be asked several times before handing over a key to the room. On entering the room it was cold and the floor was soaking wet. We later discovered this was from a leaking shower cubicle. The room was noticibly cold and after to trying to turn the radiator value up we were promised by a cleaner that the heating would become unbearably hot, we later discovered (after a cold night) this was a lie. The room was aired at best. Alarmingly there were several chunks of stale bread under the beds and when we complained the excuse given was a disabled person had used the room previously! The quilts provided looked to be extremely old and paper thin. Towels provided (only after we asked) were torn and threadbare and everything needed a good clean. After an uncomfortable night we were glad to leave and left the room cleaner than we found it. Probably better than sleeping on a park bench, but only just!

Booked this place as it was within walking distance of the holiday cottage that we were staying (group of 10), and to be honest, although the menu ticked all the boxes, being close and licensed was one of the main reasons. When we actually arrived on the Sunday night I was pleasantly surprised at the friendly ambiance that greeted us, warm, candle lit and good music at a decent volume to allow conversation. The menu though small had a good spread of choice which allowed all of our party to be able to choose fairly easily, and when the food arrived, I think all were very pleased with their choices (me, I loved the steak pie, possibly the best I have ever had - and I`ve had plenty I can assure you!). The team (chef & waiting staff) should be really proud of themselves, from the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome, the service throughout had the right balance of professional and friendly, and so allowed you to feel relaxed and enjoy your evening (something that is sometimes lost in a lot of the more pretentious city restaurants). The guys even went the extra mile to serve up a cake we had brought with us to celebrate the birthday of one of the more senior members of the party (FOC) and were happy to take photos for us throughout the night. "TOP NOTCH NIGHT" guys (also reasonably priced) - Many Thanks.

My first impressions of the Ariundle Centre, which offers food, accommodation and crafts, were of a picturesque, old-fashioned chalet-style bungalow surrounded by lush gardens, meadows and woodland. We were warmly welcomed with cups of tea on the house. All members of staff were cheerful, friendly and helpful. Inside the building there is a charming restaurant as well as a small crafts centre. Our meal was cooked to perfection and very reasonably priced. The bunk house is in a separate, similar building. The en-suite rooms are basic, as you would expect, but spacious, fresh and spotless, as was the communal kitchen and dining room. We hope to return. The people who run the centre are delightful and the location just outside Strontian is superb for anyone who loves nature or outdoor activities. This is an area that does not get mass tourism and I hope its friendly, unspoilt, quirky character never changes.
