#1 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in Knipoch
Nestling beside Loch Feochan in Argyll, Scotland, lays Knipoch Hotel (pronounced neepoch -och as in loch). This four star country house hotel is privately owned and run by the Craig family. We opened Knipoch as a hotel in 1981 when the original building was refurbished with the reception, kitchen and bedroom wing being added. Prior to this it was our family home, with a history. In 1592, Campbell, Thane of Cawdor was assassinated here at the "house of Knipoch in Lorne". In England as well as Scotland, hotels vary and individually owned hotels each have a personality. At 18 rooms (including suites), Knipoch Hotel is small enough to care for our guests personally, yet large enough to be a hotel.

If you want away from the hustle and bustle of Oban, Knipoch is ideal for peace and quiet. We had 2 nights bed and breakfast, we asked both nights to see a dinner menu but nothing was very forthcoming except a ‘ there’ll be a steak, fish or meat of some kind response, so booked meals in Oban, meaning one of us had to drive - no problem Breakfast was nice, the porridge especially, cooked fare adequate Our room was on the 1st floor, lovely and clean, nice size, but bed was a bit hard. Small but clean en-suite, over bath shower with a plastic curtain, hate them with avengeance!! The decor in the hotel very much in keeping with the old house, some would say dated but I liked that, lots of cosy seating areas As it was a beautiful day when we arrived it would have been nice to have a nice area to sit out, instead the outside lets the hotel down, unkept front garden in need of TLC. There were a few metal chairs dotted around and a well worn table so made do with them to catch some rays

At not far off £200 a night, I expect a lot. I was disappointed. The bedroom was small with a tiny tv and a small en-suite. We only saw 2 members of staff, one on reception and one in the bar/restaurant, both of whom were very pleasant. I didn’t see a safe in the room and the bathroom window clasp was broken, meaning our ground floor room was not secure. We only realised this the following morning. The food was excellent - possibly the best dinner of our trip. But of course, dinner is an extra so my point stands about the cost of the room. We went from here to a 5 star hotel in Inverness. Knipoch was approximately 50% dearer and the room wasn’t a patch on Inverness.

Hate being ripped off! Just had a drink prior to possibly dining. Charged £10 straight for a bottle of beer and a can of ginger ale. No calculation done and no receipt given / offered. Didn't bother staying to eat.

Our ferry to the Isle of Mull was cancelled because of bad weather so we had to find somewhere to stay near Oban. Stumbled across this little gem a short distance from town. While the rooms were a little small it was more than made up for with the ambience of the hotel itself and the beautiful view across the Loch over the road. Dinner was a delight with the staff being most helpful. I would highly recommend this beautiful setting for those travelling around the Oban area.

Stayed here for a week in May, was very comfortable, staff were amazingly accommodating and helpful, and the location was great if your looking to stay out the way of Oban but still need access to it every now and then. The dinner didn't start until 7.30pm which was a little late for us but was always good, was maybe a bit limited if staying there for more than a couple of nights, the rooms were a bit outdated but comfy, the whole vibe of the place was just missing something. Again the staff were great, but the hotel itself was slightly lacking in modern aminities.
