Just spent 3 nights at the Putechan Hotel on Kintyre and would highly recommend it for a relaxing stay. location right across from the sea is superb and about 10 miles from Cambeltown.
We were able to tour the whole of the Kintyre peninsula easily from the hotel.
We stayed in a principle room with balcony overlooking the sea which I guess in summer would be beautiful. The room was spacious comfortable and clean.
The food was also very good with about 7 choices from starters, mains and sweets. All food however was freshly prepared and nicely presented.
Breakfasts had a more limited menu especially if you did not want the cooked breakfast, although that was very good.
The accommodation could do with a more comfortable residents lounge rather than just the bar area but there was also a games room with pool table and darts board.
The new owners (from January 2014) and all the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful at all times.
If you want a nice peaceful break with good food would recommend you give this hotel a go.
- 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
