We stayed here after a spell on Mull and could not have been happier, visiting local gardens, distilleries etc but still enjoying the breakfasts and dinners at this very welcoming pub by the roadside almost beneath the Connel Bridge. A welcome change from Oban, jast a few minutes down the road. This was quiet, comfortable and not over-run. The bar...

Had amazing fresh local laungistines as starter with garlic butter and salad followed by sea food pie. Very good quality served by very good staff. Window seat looking over the Lorne and an amazing sunset. Couldn't be better

Passed this Hotel on a number of occasions on route to Hotels in Oban. Never considered it for an overnight but always fancied eating there. Recently however we had to stay there as all the Hotels in Oban were fully booked. What a joy. Great hotel and the staff were fantastic. Our room was to the rear so no sea...

Pre booked as found Oban to be pretty full and just as well as people were turned away. Beautiful location overlooking the water. We just took the bus from outside in to Oban. Comfortable room and decent sized bathroom. Breakfast and dinner were good with plenty local fresh food on the menu. Nice bar area to watch the sunset.

There was no view, but the room was quiet, clean, newly decorated and comfortable. We really enjoyed our dinner which I have reviewed separately. The breakfast offered a good...

We stopped for dinner with friends on a beautiful sunny spring evening. Two of our party ordered fish & chips which were excellent- large portion, fresh and tasty. Another friend ordered the chicken and haggis dish which was cooked perfectly and served with fresh vegetable. Our only disappointment was my tempura chilli prawns which I ordered as a main. The...
