Fantastic hotel. Beautiful rooms with massive beds and big bathroom with bath and separate shower. Beautiful view over the dock. Lovely little bar downstairs. Nice restaurant evening meal was lovely as was breakfast. Not a lot to do in the village tho.

Room Tip: Room over looking the little roundabout was noisy as the local kids gathered there at night

Let's keep this short and sweet. After a 7.5 hour drive overall last Sunday, was a pleasure to arrive at this hotel. Receptionist instantly on our wavelength :o) Room and food lovely - staff were excellent throughout - nothing was too much trouble.

We ate in their restaurant and the food was great. Bar is a little steep on some prices, however it's a great place to stay. Definitely set us up well for the week ahead.

Room Tip: Great views from rooms of the bay. Even on wet/windy days.

Stayed here for a weekend break to golf at Machrihanish and to just chill out. The hotel is a fantastic and much needed addition to the local scene. The rooms are perfect - high quality furnishings, great size, lovely interior design and amazing pictures of Campeltown of old adorn the walls. The service is just spot on - really warm and friendly staff who actually do care. Well done to everyone.

Only criticism is the restaurant. It could never be described as bad - it's just not quite as good as the rest of the hotel experience and not as good as the food at The Old Clubhouse Pub in Machrihanish (same ownership I think).

Overall - highly recommended and puts some of it's big competitors like Gleneages to shame with it's quality and value for money.

This hotel has been refurbished to cater for American and Irish Golf groups. What a transformation! Absolutely wonderful. Hope the rest of Campbeltown takes note.

Just returned from a weekend break. The hotel is first class, and the American owners are showing a good few Scottish owners how it should be done. Great staff, obviously well trained. Refreshing to have local staff also, and they are a credit to themselves and the company. Stayed in a superior room ( 12 ) and it was exquisite- one of the nicest rooms we have stayed in, in Scotland. Very comfortable bed, and everything else was top notch.
Great food and nice bar with nice touches like dedicated (chilled) beer glasses for the array of different draught beers on offer.
We were on a golf/spa deal, but unfortunately the weather did not allow for golf. However Laura and the other Laura at the spa looked after us, and they were excellent.
Also did the whisky distillery tour. Our guide was George, and like the hotel staff, he was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
Hopefully I can get back for some golf sometime soon.

Room Tip: Maybe Higher than first floor- can be a bit noisy from the bar on a Saturday night !
