Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My 1st time eating at this Hotel. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival. Walked into a lovely atmosphere in the bar and the staff were so lovely. Our meal was superb! I had the Fish in a light beer batter and it...was perfection, so fresh, and huge with salad & chips. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Staff are great and just made us feel so welcome. We will be back & would definitely recommend the Kilmartin Hotel . Thank you so much, we had a really lovely afternoon.More

As a local, what can I say…..it’s just the best wee pub in the area. Warm welcome always, staff lovely, food great, service fabulous and Kilmartin Hotel has its very own long history of being a place to stop consistently probably for the past 300...years! Full of charm and a real west coast pub feel. Generations of the family are portrayed on the walls and I’m sure many more to come. Good job Richard and all the team serving the community and the local area with amazing custom ⭐️More

An older hotel, lovingly cared for by a terrific staff. Rooms have quirky configurations which give them great versatility. Excellent meals. Wonderful, historical location. Check out the museum across the road and take a walk to see the monuments that are literally thousands of years...old. I'd return to this hotel in a heartbeat.More

Nice evening meal in the restaurant whilst staying in a local cottage for the week. The food was good, with lots of choice and fairly priced. Staff friendly and efficient service. Also a nice walk to and from our cottage through the interesting village of...Kilmartin.More

Good food and lovely staff. Kilmartin hotel has a striking position in the village- you won’t miss it on the main road. There is easy parking too. We had a delicious meal of home made chicken pie and fresh vegetables. Good traditional pub grub with...a great menu. Well cooked and served. Good value for money. We will definitely be back.More

We really enjoy jaunts out to the Kilmartin Hotel. Don't expect any frills or gastropub vibes, just solid dependable old fashioned pub fare; big portions, good value, plenty of choice, classic options, Scottish twists. The pub itself could do with an extensive tart up. It's...tired inside & out, outright grubby in parts, BUT don't let that put you off. The staff are super friendly, and the manager is welcoming & runs a tight ship. Squeeze through the tight bar, & there's plenty of space out to the back. There are always lots of vegetarian options available (surprisingly), both on the specials board & in the main menu. Personal favourites include the veggie haggis nacho starter (not joking) & the outrageously large desserts! OH always has the steak & ale pie, & staples like chips & onion rings are always good. Great selection of gins (including Kilmartin Gin - my recommendation) and local ales. It won't break the bank & you're guaranteed to come out super full & satisfied!More

I regret that this review will not comment on the great quality of the food, the pleasant ambience and the staff friendliness. We were looking for a light lunch {eg soup and a sandwich} and were aware that given the timing (14.25) a snack might...be all that would be available. We did not expect to be snapped at that lunch closed at 2.30 pm and nothing was on offer. The surliness of the bar person was so obvious we did not pursue or complain and simply ordered 2 coffees. Given that there is currently no alternative in the area the Inn is missing a great opportunity to build the business and goodwill; and indeed provide hospitality for travellers. The "regulars" at the bar seem to be the same ones as were there when we visited a few years ago - reluctant to move and let us in.More

I have checked with Richard Pate (as Tripadvisor would not allow me to send you his email address) and he has confirmed that dogs are allowed.
