Loch Linnhe Waterfront Lodges
Reviewed 22 October 2017 via mobile

Beautiful scenic and quiet location with stunning views over Loch Linnhe from the lodge. Couple of nearby walks with great views (across the road and up the cycle path or along the loch side), otherwise you really need car to travel, especially for shops etc. Fort William itself is about 20 minute drive.

Stayed in lodge 8, which was clean, cosy and provided everything needed. Super view from the balcony over the loch.

Food in the hotel restaurant was excellent. Good stocked bar too. Swimming pool and sauna available for use by lodge guests also.

And everything is dog friendly too! Definitely recommend.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled with family

Located on the north east bank of Loch Linnhe, just outside Kentallen, these lodges are a must for lovers of Scottish Highland scenery.
Tremendous views overlooking the Loch to Sallachan and Inversanda, the odd fishing boat and swooping gulls catching the fish.
Ballachulish and Glencoe close by, 30 minute scenic drive up to Fort William, 45 minutes to the Glenfinnan viaduct & monument.
The lodges themselves are fairly modern, generally clean with good heaters for the colder periods, the big selling point is the decent size balcony overlooking the Loch.
An electric shower over the bath is installed, but due to the cold water, the showers are not hot if using a fast water flow.
Recycling bins are provided in each lodge, electric cooker, fridge, toaster and dishwasher are also provided.
Lodges 1 & 2 are suitable for wheelchair guests, lodges 1 to 4 have parking directly outside the lodges, where lodges 5 to 8 involves a short walk.
The adjacent Holly Tree Hotel provides good meals all day and also has a well stocked bar.
It is recommended that if you wish a meal in the Seafood restaurant, you book it the day before at the latest as it is very popular.
Dogs are permitted in the lodges, with decent walks close by, cycle track 78 along the Loch is an easy walk, where as if you cross the road to the cycle track, a more strenuous walk through the hills is awaiting you. Please note that livestock is present in the hills.

The views from the lodge is fabulous, right on the water’s edge and to be able to sit on the balcony anytime of the day and watch the landscape on the other side of the Loch change depending on the weather was fantastic. The large patio door meant that you had a great view of the Loch from the sitting room.
The Lodge comes fully equipped with all the necessary things you would need in the kitchen, plenty of tea and coffee was supplied.

We tried the restaurant once for dinner, it was OK I ordered a steak and although it was cooked very well, all I had on my plate was a steak with sauce and chips on the side. The steak did look lonely and the plate looked bare, for £23.25 a little something else to go with it?
The lodges are not cheap, you are paying for the view and you can also use the hotel's pool and sauna. The road can be quite busy and there is a certain amount of noise from the road. This only affects the bedrooms in the morning (rush hour) and not the sitting room. Although the road is screened by trees it doesn’t seem to help reduce the road noise. The lodges are not particularly luxurious, but they are comfortable. The bathroom is on the small side and could be a problem if there are 5 of you sharing the lodge (no separate loo). free Wi-fi, although the signal could be weak.
The Lodge do need a bit of TLC, but otherwise they are very clean and an ideal base to explore the area.

The lodges are not cheap but I think you are paying for the view and the fact that you can use the hotel's pool and sauna. The view is fabulous. We were there in April and it was not really warm enough to sit on the balcony, but the large windows meant that you could see it from the sitting room. I loved the way that we felt we were right over the water and could hear the waves. the only down side is a very busy road over the wall at the back which might be noisy in summer. However it is screened by trees and you cannot see it from the lodges. The lodges have everything you need, but not particularly luxurious. The bathroom is very small. Kentallen is centrally placed for exploring south to Oban, west to Ardnamurchan, east to Glen Coe and Rannoch Moor and north to Fort William and Mallaig. We ate once in the hotel, and perhaps it was because it was the beginning of the season, that the service was a bit haphazard. However we will certainly be back. The location is superb!

Lodge was lovely, very comfortable and cosy. All necessary bits and bobs in the kitchen.

The views are absolutely breathtaking, the lodges are right on the waters edge and we couldn't have asked for anything more!

We tried the restaurant for dinner, it was super busy and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Felt the cost was a little high for a self catering lodge, but it was an amazing experience.

Loved the recycling facilities as well, very nice touch.
