Achamore House has a truly fantastic garden, Achamore House it self has everything you expect from an English mansion. The "hotel" rooms are huge - really huge and decorated in an very nice minimalistic way with taste. On the other hand everything is a little bit worn down. And it is not a hotel - it is more a B&B....

One of our group flying to Gigha in our microlights booked this place on spec., unseen. We walked up from the airstrip in sweltering heat to discover just where we were staying. What a superb surprise this turned out to be! A warm, friendly welcome from Don, the owner, and into very clean and comfortable rooms. You could sense the...

Achamore house is a B&B and unusual in the size of rooms which are huge and the grounds and gardens which are an estate. A previous reviewer seems to be confusing it with a hotel. We stayed on the pink room which has a separate bathroom next door, which was no inconvenience at all and as a result the room...

My husband and I stayed recently and left with mixed feelings. The house and its woodwork is stunning but décor is quite tired. We felt it was really over-priced - £130 for the two of us B&B. Breakfast on the Sunday was between 9.00-9.30 only. My husband is diabetic and had limited choice of cereal - only muesli and crunchy...

Achamore House is a must-stay for any couples travelling along the West Coast of Scotland. My boyfriend and I stayed here and found the whole experience wonderful. From the moment we approached the house up the driveway we knew this place would be special. The gardens are stunning and such a pleasure to walk through, we particularly enjoyed walking up...

I took my mother and my fiancée to Achamore House.  We stayed  in the Tower and Bridal suite. The beds were very comfy, had tea and coffee in the rooms and lots of hot water for a lovely hot bath and the views overlooked the lovely gardens.  The facilities available are great for family trips to Gigha with a dvd/tv...

We spent a long weekend here at the time of the Gigha Music Festival and it was lovely. It certainly wasn't the cheapest accommodation on the island, but we were lucky to find anything when we were booking so late. The house is magnificent, (think shabby chic) the welcome is lovely, and our room was extremely comfortable - the most...

Over the Jubilee weekend my mother, partner and I stayed at the lovely Acamore house on the island of Gigha. The house is amazing and the rooms comfortable and a well appointed.

The house itself is very impressive, big and old, but the rooms are really overpriced. They are really, really cold (no central heating) and the whole interior could've done with a lot of renovation. It looks definitely better from the outside than the inside. The gardens cost extra to get in, and they have been partly closed, too, so for...

“If you are tall, like my husband, not having a shower in the room isn't helpful - check room first.”

“We didn't have an ensuite room - it would have cost a lot more money for very little extra benefit because there are so many bathrooms all over the place and huge fluffy bathrobes provided for walking about in.”

“All the rooms are good and even if you don't have an en suite is a nice experience as there are many bathrooms in the house so chances are you will have the toilet for yourself.”
