Will start with the service of the staff, they are very friendly and nothing is to much trouble.

The views from the hotel are amazing, unfortunately it rained till the day we left, so sight seeing was a rather damp affair.

Only downside i could say about the food was it made my trousers very tight by the time we left........the food is superb in every respect...have never ever tasted black pudding and haggis as nice as that before....the seafood combo main meal was as good as you could get anywhere at any top restaurant in the world.

So to sum up the Holly Tree.....would we stay there again........would we recommend it ???

Definatley without a shadow of a doubt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stayed here last June and visited the area again this May - but staying in a different hotel. We loved this hotel and restaurant last time so booked a table. Not disappointed. The food was again excellent (my started of hot smoked trout was the size of a main course, delicious and fantastic value), service first class and the views amazing. Next time we will stay in the hotel - best food in the area. Well done.

Stayed at the hotel for the 2nd time in early May, once again a fantastic visit. The staff are brilliant, always have a smile & pleasant greeting for you. The food is excellent & the views, well what can I say, I could just sit and watch all day, it changes constantly, fabulous. God willing we'll be back again next year, if not sooner!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 8, which is on the top floor, lovely & quiet, but I would imagine most of the...

What a little gem , got as a last chance, after travelling from the North. Great food, had crab and a beef fillet, excellent. Beautiful sceanery and great comfy rooms. It is surprising how surrounding lift you in an hotel. Will be going back, as it's only 4hrs from Bolton and they take well behaved dogs, he's better behaved than me. Staff spot on. Ginger

Room Tip: Ask for any , your pocket. All good.

What a great place to stay, all rooms have stunning views over the loch. The rooms were very good, as were the beds!! Good size bathroom.
We had a delicious diner aswell. A place to remember and we will certainly come back!

Stayed for 2 nights in April just after Easter. We have stayed at this hotel on 4 or 5 occasions previously and are always impressed (would have stayed more but some years prices have gone too high).
We stayed in a Captains bedroom as they have balconies and are slightly bigger and I think have bigger beds. Mattresses are a bit hard, but then some people may prefer them like that. Rooms are nicely furnished and clean, not ultra modern but serve their purpose well. Most important is the view from all bedroom windows across Loch Linnhe to the mountains the other side and amazing sunsets. The pier and terrace are lovely to sit out with a drink (if you are lucky with the weather as we were on this occasion).
The food in the restaurant for both breakfast and evening meals (we have always stayed DB&B) is second to none and along with the view is what keeps us returning. Seafood is always very fresh and amazing as well as the Steak! Unlike other hotels there is also no financial restriction on the DB&B guest so you can have exactly what you want from the menu.
Service is always good throughout and there is also the small indoor pool which is a great added bonus.

Room Tip: Captains rooms are worth a few extra pounds especially if you go in warm weather
