Glenfinnan House Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Glenfinnan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 November 2013

We stayed at Glenfinnan House Hotel for 2 days and found it an absolutely fantastic place to stay. We enjoyed sunny days and warm nights and this good weather may have contributed to our thoughts on this hotel, but not so much. Situated beside Loch Shiel and a short distant from the Glenfinnan monument this hotel is considerably better than excellent. The main lawn leading down to the lake had deer grazing on it when we arrived and walking into the high entrance porch you are greeted with reminders of the origins of this building - for the privledged few in a time when life for most was much harder. Enter the entrance hall with its huge fireplace and magnificent staircase and you are greeted as though you are the owner of such a grand building. Our bedroom - the size of a tennis court (or so it seemed) looked over the loch and the hills towards Ben Nevis. The bathroom was bigger than most peoples lounges with efficient plumbing. Dinner was in keeping with the building with almost faultless cooking that should warrant a one Michelin star - the ambiance of the restaurant was enhanced by a large window overlooking the lake and joy of joys a reasonably priced wine list. The bar here - also used by the 'locals' - stocks far more different whiskeys than anyone could sample not only in two night but in a week.
In summary a quite, enchanting, hotel oozing with charm that is close to being the definitive Country House Hotel. Will I return - absolutely yes (just hope they find a room for me!)

Book a room with a view - its worth it! The trees, the jumping fish, the stars on a clear night - all add up to a relaxing holiday. The real fire to sit next to and read away the late afternoon before dinner was a real treat.

Ths staff were very friendly and helpful, the bed was so comfortable. The only shock in a morning was when the shower stopped, or tunred cold, but once you learnt how to handle it it was part of the charm!

This was our second time here, and it won't be our last!

Room Tip: One with view of the loch is a must!

We were in Arisaig on holiday,, and decided to visit Glenfinnan House on the advice of David the owner of the Cnoc na Faire,,, it was well worth the round trip of 40+ miles. The Glenfinnan is pure magic, from the aroma of wood as you walk through the entrance, to the sumptuous decor and furnishings. The bar area is do die for. If you imagine an old Scottish Hunting Lodge,,,this is it.The food we ordered was fantastic, freshly cooked and served with a smile, and tasted out of this world,,brilliant views over Loch Shiel and the Jacobite Monument,,, this has to be a must to visit.

Having returned to the Glenfinnan House Hotel for the first time in a few years, we were delighted to find it as good and welcoming as ever. A log-fire in the entrance-hall, with the smell of wood smoke, creates the warm, relaxing atmosphere that pervades the whole place. The staff were welcoming, professional and efficient throughout and we were left with the impression of an establishment that is extremely well run but with a relaxed manner and lightness of touch.The food was excellent and imaginative, using the good produce that the area provides. The scallops with cauliflower bhajis, puree and saffron infused florets were simply glorious and we have them as our starter both evenings.

This is a hotel in which we find it easy to relax,due to its glorious location on Loch Sheil - few hotel dining rooms can have a better view - the staff, a comfortable bedroom and spa bath, the anticipation of good food, and the respect that is shown for a lovely old Victorian shooting lodge. Given all that it provides, the Glenfinnan House hotel represents good value for the price we paid.

Firstly the food here is excellent the staff are great and Duncan the owner/chef is a really nice guy, the views from the hotel are worth the money alone. The Thursday night music is great crack. If you are passing here it is definatley worth going in for lunch or dinner.
