Having had two fantastic visits to the Ugadale cottages myself, I organised a two night birthday treat for my parents in the Ugadale Hotel. I had already described the fantastic setting and great treatment they would receive there and it would seem it lived up to all their expectations. They found their room very comfortable and enjoyed fabulous views over...

Just back from an Amazing Easter break with the kids. We could not fault anything. The most comfortable bed i have ever slept in. Staff are so friendly, kids are made welcome and the food is beautiful. Best Scottish break ever for us. Loved every second and made some great family memories :)

First time visitors, we booked Suite No 5 (as recommended on another Tripadvisor review) and it is certainly the best room in the house. The bed was extremely hard - but that's always subjective.The quality of the look and feel of the hotel is definitely top notch. Staff really friendly and welcoming - a special thank you to Sandra on...

We stayed in the hotel over the New Year holiday. Stunning drive down to Machrihanish with a stop for lunch at Tarbert, Loch Fyne. The hotel has a real quality feel about it, with well trained friendly staff and a great pub next door (which we ate in as the main restaurant was fully booked). Great value for money. I...

We had such a great time last New Year that we came back again and brought some more family and friends with us. Everyone loved it and had a great time. The food on New Year's Eve was excellent and we enjoyed the music and atmosphere - we even had a wee dance! The cottages were as comfortable as ever...

Just returned from a 3 night break at the Ugadale Hotel over New Year 2013/14. The hotel was excellent and our room had a great view out to sea and over to the 1st tee on Machrihanish Golf Club. The hotel is part of a development called the Village at Machrihanish Dunes which is slightly confusing as the Machrihanish Dunes...

We visited family in Campbeltown who looked after our son. We stayed at Ugadale for two days which was great. The hotel was ideal, the room was lovely, the restaurant was closed as it was winter but the bar / restaurant a short walk away was probably just as good. Only negative was I asked bacon and poached eggs for...
