First time I have stayed at this nice quiet hotel. The room we had had a great view over the Inlet and over to the mainland. The staff were excellent, friendly and happy to help. The food was nice and homely the bar is extremely well stocked with hundreds of malt whiskies and seems to be a hub of the...

Called in here for lunch. Friendly welcome and although not an extensive or particularly imaginative menu, we had soup and a toastie and it was fine. Great location and had it not been raining, it would have been lovely to sit out overlooking the sea.

Great location, but the hotel and rooms seem to need to be refurbished our family room was adequate albeit with quite dated decor. It was a bit strange to have a room without a Windows but instead had two skylights that meant the room was very light very early in the morning. We decided to give the hotel a miss...

My wife and I arrived after the long walk from Sannox. Our reception could not be described as warm or welcoming. Our accommodation had been arranged by the Coastal Walk organiser who had travelled ahead and deposited our bags. The lady who received us rather gruffly mentioned that she was glad they were our bags as they didn't know who...

It is disappointing to write this as the staff were so helpful. However, like other visitors who have written on this site, we found the Lochranza Hotel a disappointment. Another reviewer used the word tired. most appropriate. The hotel has a striking presence in a stunning location. The garden area, with picnic table seating, is eye- catching on arrival, even...

Stayed one night on my way to Islay. Though this hotel has a stunning location, it felt tired and needed updating. Bedroom adequate, but bedding poor. The quilt & pillows were old & not very comfortable. Selection for breakfast was very poor. Only grapefruit segments or a ripe banana, orange juice or cereal, no yogurts plus cooked breakfast available.

We were staying locally at The Butt b&b and needed somewhere to have dinner. Alistair of the b&b suggested the Lochranza Hotel as the restaurant was full and it was the only place within walking distance. Not great on decor but as a basic pub it was fine. Service was perfect, the good pub food served was delicious. The Tennents...

We stayed for one night at the Lochranza hotel on our way to Islay using the ferry services rather than driving up and down Kintyre. We were shown to a room with a beautiful view of the castle ruins and the bay and although the room was lovely, the en-suite was very small. We had an evening meal which was...
