Perfectly warm and welcoming pub and restaurant. The food is fantastic (do try the black pudding and the marvellous scottish breakfast), and the staff is equally lovely. Make sure to spend an evening there, you can have excellent food and a drink, then rest in a comfy armchair and play cards after a rainy scottish summer day! What more could...

Love this place! Love the owners Helen and Andrew and of course Madelon. My second time visiting and hopefully it will not be the last time. We had a taxi from Dunoon and came round the single lane winding roads which was quite an experience in itself. We did sightseeing in the daytime and visited a beer brewary and Invarary...

Ok so no TV, no cell reception and barely any wifi, miles from anywhere. BUT the food is amazing, the staff are fantastic, the view is gorgeous. If you want to get away from it this is the place to be. I would definitely come back again, if just for the goat cheese salad.

Beautiful Hotel with a long history and much character been around since the early 1700's. Rooms were spacious but a bit dated. Mattress was medium firmness and comfortable. Bathrooms have been renovated looks much more modern than i was anticipating. We stayed in the room where you can see the beach and the MacEwen castle ruins. We arrived later in...

We stayed here on the way back from a trip to Islay, we booked very last minute during the Easter holiday - what a great place! An amazingly friendly welcome, and a good room - we had a 2 room suite due to small children, their room had twin beds and room for a travel cot too, then a corridor...

Friendly owners and staff at this family run hotel makes for an idiylic break. Set amid the wilderness that is the secret coast of Argyll you couldn't be more removed from a hectic world. Wildlife abounds and the hotels food is locally sourced, much obtained from their own garden. Quiet it may be but every day brings a new experience....

A small totally charming countryside hotel set well off the beaten track. The rooms are comfy and the service is spot on. Good food....I especially recommend duck eggs for breakfast. A pleasant pub makes for a relaxing spot for a single malt or two.
