“Amazing time and place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

My husband and I stayed at Greggans Inn for four brilliant days. The atmosphere and the friendly welcome we recieved was the beginning of our stay. The staff, service, food and room were excellent. We enjoyed stunning views and enjoyed the various activities in the area that kept us busy and happy. If you want a wonderful holiday do try this amazing Inn in it's amazing location. We would certainly return.....

Our children booked us an overnight stay and meal for our anniversary - lovely surprise and we were not disappointed! We stayed in Rm 10 - a superior double - which has fabulous views over Loch Fyne. A well appointed, spotlessly clean room. We enjoyed a meal in the Bistro which included the Chicken Liver Parfait and Goats Cheese Starters followed by Roast Chump of Lamb and Roast Breast of Chicken. Food was superb and service was excellent! We will definitely be back again in the near future!

Room Tip: You have to have a loch view

Just wanted to share my thoughts about this fantastic hotel, I was cycling back to Lochgoilhead and seeing as it was a lovely hot day decided to stop and have a spot of lunch, and the Creggans hotel was the hotel of choice, having past it several times in recent weeks, and wow,

I was not let down, the service was fantastic, from the moment I walked in the door I got a lovely welcoming smile from the receptionist (who was on the phone at the time, but still took the time to acknowledge me) and then there was the girls behind the bar, who were nice and chatty, they took my order swiftly, seeing as it was sunny outside I had chosen to eat outside, and when i got outside the staff had already put my cutlery on the table, (didnt have to worry about the meal turning up before the cutlery) My meal came out quickly and was just lovely, I had the Aberdeen angus burger, the chips had been cut from fresh potatoes, (no bought in frozen chips), This just speaks volumes into how much the hotel owners and staff care for the quality of there food they sell a huge plus in my mind, after I had finished my food I asked the waitress if I could fill up my water bottle, with some fresh water, this was not a problem, She even went the extra mile by adding some ice and also gave me some ice,

As someone who works in the trade and strives for excellant customer service I left feeling very happy and will be back many more times in the future, a gem of a place that more than compliments the stunning sceanery of Argyll & Bute

So well done to the staff for a great wee visit

An impromptu visit to such a glorious location for Father's Day fell just a bit short at lunch at Creggans Inn. The menu looked delightful but other than the Loch Fyne scallops that spoke for themselves the rest of our lunch was rather a disaster by appearance and taste. The sea bass from the specials menu were 3 poorly done scraps of tails on a very overdone risotto. The salmon was very dry and under seasoned. The portions were adequate but very large for a 10 year old. My son who ordered the haddock couldn't finish even half of his plate. We were not offered a children's menu!!
The service left a lot to be desired and we didn't feel welcome in the least.
Its such a shame when Creggans Inn is in this absolutely beautiful location.

we visited Creggans Inn twice last week, both times to eat. The service and food was brilliant, good size portions and very tasty, a warm friendly atmosphere. Location of the Inn is fabulous with spectacular views over the Loch.. would recommend visiting Creggans Inn if only for a drink.

This wonderful old inn is a find indeed.Such a beautiful spot right on Loch Fyne.My room was tastefully decorated with views over the loch which change every 5 mins - glorious! Staff vouldn't have been more helpful. Hats off to the chef; the food in the bistro was some of the best I have ever had. I shall be back

Room Tip: Best rooms are those overlooking the loch.

Whilst the rest of the UK was basking in sunshine we endured a filthy, rainswept weekend, but the Creggans made up for it. The location is stunning, the bedrooms excellent and the public rooms restful and welcoming. The staff were capable and friendly and the food was very good. Deserves its accolades.
