Knipoch Hotel

Reviewed 23 May 2014

We recently spent two nights at the lovely Knipoch Hotel, it was blissful. We had Room 11 which had a lovely view, the food was wonderful and on each night the choices were very tempting. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble, even the weather was perfect. We can't wait to have a return visit.

Room Tip: Definitely room 11!

The hotel is set on a beautiful piece of property, very quite and peaceful. Great view of the sea and mountains from our room. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was very good with a good assortment of hot and cold foods.

Spent three nights here in March 2014. Despite typically wet Oban weather, the hotel was wArm and welcoming. Staff were ere unobtrusive to the point of hardly seeing anyone around! The breakfast room was lacking in atmosphere and the service was somewhat stern.

The food was lovely and the

The location was perfect for touring and walking, being outside the town.

Enjoyable!

Stayed here 5th - 7th April 2014 on a 2 day trip to Oban. Really idyllic settings with great views across the loch and the surrounding hills. Very peaceful, quiet and serene away from the busy small harbour town of Oban but only a stone's throw away from it. Good food, great service and great whisky collection of which the owner was only too happy to give us a very full and in depth lesson of the fine art of whisky tasting. Would be very happy to visit again.

I recently stayed at the Knipoch Hotel for 2 nights and I was very impressed from the minute I arrived. It is set in a lovely location a short drive from Oban and overlooking a sea loch. It was very much a pleasent stay and great value for the money paid. A lovely full breakfast was provided each morning which set us up for the day :) Thank you once again for a nice welcome and stay :)

This hotel is one of Scotland's best kept secrets.
The food served is a five star quality with a great menu, both for breakfast and dinner, with the chef providing some additional meals on request.
The hotel is set in a lovely surrounding just a sort drive from Oban with lovely views over the loch.
Rooms are very well furnished, and spotless with guest lounges providing a lovely relaxing atmosphere and the staff all have a can do attitude with no request being a problem.
If you want a break to relax and get away from it all with great food, great service, this is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have a loch view so no matter what room you were vacated you would not be disappoi...

Just south of Oban. We had an emergency stop here with our 5 year old for two nights in October. Delightful hotel, owner/manager, staff and views. Family-run old country house style. Everything happens quietly without fuss. Big rooms with good facilities. Superb food on quite a 'modest-looking' menu. Lots of space and lovely views of the loch just yards away. It would be hard to do better for value.

Room Tip: Suspect all rooms have the great view....

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
