The Ugadale hotel is one of the best hotels that I've stayed in. The view from the rooms is breathtaking. Looking up the sandy bay to the golf courses and over to the islands of Islay and Jura. The rooms are really spacious, spotless and well equipped. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. The food is brilliant. Try...

We spent two nights here over a weekend. The staff were very pleasant and also very helpful especially the chap on the desk but sadly they lacked training. At breakfast I had to ask for a glass, a cereal bowl and a side plate as there were none at the self serve buffet. In the bar drinks were placed on...

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your comments. We investigate all comments, both positive and negative and in your case did determine that the days you were with us, especially at breakfast, we experienced an unusually high volume of guests/customers. We had more than 25 customers walk into the restaurant unannounced, which we were not expecting, but we never want to...

Friendly open, comfortable and updated accommodation in spectacular golf & beach hotel in this out of the way location. The open willing and helpful reception staff, well presented rooms, comfortable beds and facilities together with the remote location for deliveries and availability of staff make up for any shortage in training of staff in the finer points of modern customer...

The staff were great, we had a stunning sea view, fantastic big bath and was just a really nice place to go and escape for the night. A lovely sleepy village by the beach. A much nicer location than in Campbeltown itself. Would definately recommend this trip to couples.

My husband and I stayed for a few days for our 25th anniversary. I would highly recommend staying at The Ugadale. The food was great..though reservations are recommended to ensure a table, especially in the pub. The room was very large with a great bathroom. My husband thought the golf was incredible. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was the best I...
