My partner, my dog and I stayed two nights in this lovely family owned dog friendly hotel. The outside of the hotel looked freshly painted and very beautiful and charming. It over looks the loch. The inside is very beautiful, charming and clean. Our room was large, clean, bright, and had lovely views from the windows. The staff was very friendly. We even met one of the family owners who gave us and our dog a very big welcome. We ate in the restaurant both nights. The food was delicious with different menu dishes each night. I highly recommend the smoked salmon starter. The smoked salmon was absolutely delicious. The breakfast was excellent as well. The hotel is only about 10 minutes drive from Oban. Dogs are not allowed in the restaurant or the bar area but they are allowed in the very large, comfortable and charming reception area where we were able to have our drinks sitting next to the open fire. Lovely stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 22 rooms (including suites), Knipoch Hotel is small enough to care for our guests personally, yet large enough to be a hotel. ... more less
