Just changed hands and the new owner either has no money, no common sense, no people skills or just couldn't care less. According to other guests it was a very good hotel last September. Any decent hotelier or chef would love to get their hands on this place with its views across the water, modern dining room and decent sized,...

Lovely room and views. Dinner grim. Staff rarely in evidence. Wine (list is good) plonked on table unopened. Waited forever for main and after half an hour of waiting for dessert, told it had run out. Breakfast of first day was poor - the tomatoes and sausage were completely inedible - but on second day cooked order didn't appear at...

This is a cracking location, with friendly staff, that lacks a chief or even a cook that can make a cooked breakfast. It was a shambles and on the first day they only had one person on waitressing and it was her second day. Make sure you have transport because the food really let's this place down, the evening meal...

We booked this on an Amazon deal, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We love this part of the country, and arrived in lovely weather and enjoyed sitting on our sea-view balcony the first evening watching a glorious sunset behind the isles of Islay and Jura. The room was clean and comfortable enough, although the balcony had not been swept properly....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Putechan Hotel is a former Duke of Argyll’s hunting lodge dating from 1872. It lies on the western edge of Kintyre facing the dramatic Atlantic Ocean with stunning views of the Isles of Islay, Jura and Gigha, together with incredible sunsets. It is surrounded by rugged grounds with an amazing pebble beach, strewn with giant rocks for our customers to enjoy. Take a walk along the beach or perhaps a BBQ while looking out for the dolphins and minke whales. The hotel, now under new ownership, has been extensively refurbished and extended, and can now offer a variety of bedrooms to suit different tastes and pockets; from the bridal suite with roll-top window bath looking out to Jura and Islay and balcony facing the ocean, our 1st floor premier rooms with balconies, ground floor doubles with sea views and a linked disabled room. We can also offer more budget accommodation in our rear facing rooms and ‘bunk rooms’. We also have a fully refurbished and extended Venue catering for a variety of events from weddings (up to 120 seated). Attached to the south wing is the sensational ‘Rock Room’ with one whole wall formed by a massive rock with French doors to the rear and front with stunning views over the ocean. The room seats around twenty and could be used for meetings, smaller intimate weddings, yoga/fitness work-outs, business meetings, or an exhibition hall for local artists. Tell us what event you want to run and we will make sure it is one to remember. The south-facing courtyard is a natural sun-trap and looks over onto the private beach. With practically no light pollution, and clever outdoor lighting systems the Putechan enjoys fantastic stargazing on a cloudless night. ... more   less
