My wife and I stayed at Kinloch House in July 2014 for one night. The accommodations were similar to staying at someone's old family house -- lots of family pictures around, family knick knacks, somewhat worn furniture, etc. Charming in that way.
The room (2nd floor in building separate from main house) seemed a bit small but was comfortable and quiet. A large sitting room with honor bar is on the first floor of this separate building. It was unseasonably warm, so I was thankful for the fan in the bedroom.
Dinner involves first meeting with a staff person in bar area for a drink and hors d'oeuvres to go over the menu and make a few decisions. The meal was very good and inventive (crushed popcorn on gazpacho, for example). Lots of staff. Breakfast was similarly very good.
It is in a quiet part of the island -- not much in way of shopping options or restaurants nearby.
