We were with a tour group and found that the whole staff was friendly and hotel was clean and food great. They need a little practice learning how to ring up separate checks for a large group, but that will come. David, the owner, was...More

We have now fully refurbished and added extensive facilities for Weddings making the Hotel a wonderful destination venue. Having been closed for 10 months for Major renovations we re-opened end October 2016 ...Morewith what could be described now as one of the nicest Hotels in North Argyll. Free WiFi is excellent throughout the Hotel and each bedroom has a 43 inch wall mounted TV for comfortable viewing from bed. The warm, welcome, friendly hospitality continues from the owners and friendly local staff team in this family owned and operated country Hotel & Bistro. The tranquil rural setting is in seven and a half acres of landscaped gardens in the shadows of Ben Cruachan at the mouth of the historic Brander Pass in a sun drenched south facing wee Glen. The Hotel has 21 rooms all en-suite compiling a combination of singles in doubles, kingsize and a two roomed family room with a three bedroom Chalet in the front garden area. The superior downstairs rooms have french doors with a terrace to sit on weather permitting and direct access to our gardens and grounds, fresh espresso pod coffee machine, toweling robes and comfortable space. The Hotels internal renovation and refurbishment program is complete and there will be further additions of building with the added facilities of a 30 seat conference room, new reception entrance and 10 additional ensuite bedrooms late Winter early Spring 2016/17 as business permits, with minimal disruption to guests as it shall be completed in a cordoned off area. The exterior of the lodge has now a colonial veranda framing the approach elevation protecting guests from the Scottish weather those few times it is at its worst :-) and has extended car parking lit at night. Our Menu offers freshly prepared and locally sourced food where possible and portions are generous with a more homely nature, wholesome and hearty. Less

Sadly not dining internally that I know of.
The issue is the amount of dogs being transported around and other guests that object to them. No one's dog is the only dog and often there will be a dog that doesn't accept others and the issue escalates. It would be advisable to leave your dog in the car whilst you eat albeit with the window down for air after giving it a toilet run around first.
We originally had a house dog and cat and had to pass them onto out daughter due to guest objections so not everyone is pet friendly in a commercial environment and some people have health issues with pet allergies.
Sorry I cannot be of any help.
Our Hotel is closed for major re-development and renovations and due to past guest issues, the decor and financial investment we will not be accepting pets within the Hotel when we re-open.
