We stayed for two nights in January at the Putechan Hotel in a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the sea. It was very stylish with contemporary furnishings and an outstanding view. The first night we saw stars like we had never seen before as the sky was clear - quite unforgettable. I have never seen anything like it since Maui in Hawaii. The champion of this hotel is the chef. Absolutely brilliant. If you like to eat good food, this is the place to go. Fabulous beef and pork on the first night, with chocolate and raspberry creme brulee for pud - utterly fab. The first night we were there I had noticed a chap having lasagne and it looked lovely. On our second night, although it was not on the menu, I asked if the lasagne was available and the chef did a special one for me. How many places would do this? Breakfast was also fantastic. Would recommend this hotel for the most excellent food, wonderful location and friendly helpful staff. Could not ask for more. We will be back!! ps. Do not be put off by the busy road. It is very quiet at night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Putechan Hotel is a former Duke of Argyll’s hunting lodge dating from 1872. It lies on the western edge of Kintyre facing the dramatic Atlantic Ocean with stunning views of the Isles of Islay, Jura and Gigha, together with incredible sunsets. It is surrounded by rugged grounds with an amazing pebble beach, strewn with giant rocks for our customers to enjoy. Take a walk along the beach or perhaps a BBQ while looking out for the dolphins and minke whales. The hotel, now under new ownership, has been extensively refurbished and extended, and can now offer a variety of bedrooms to suit different tastes and pockets; from the bridal suite with roll-top window bath looking out to Jura and Islay and balcony facing the ocean, our 1st floor premier rooms with balconies, ground floor doubles with sea views and a linked disabled room. We can also offer more budget accommodation in our rear facing rooms and ‘bunk rooms’. We also have a fully refurbished and extended Venue catering for a variety of events from weddings (up to 120 seated). Attached to the south wing is the sensational ‘Rock Room’ with one whole wall formed by a massive rock with French doors to the rear and front with stunning views over the ocean. The room seats around twenty and could be used for meetings, smaller intimate weddings, yoga/fitness work-outs, business meetings, or an exhibition hall for local artists. Tell us what event you want to run and we will make sure it is one to remember. The south-facing courtyard is a natural sun-trap and looks over onto the private beach. With practically no light pollution, and clever outdoor lighting systems the Putechan enjoys fantastic stargazing on a cloudless night. ... more less
