For us this visit had almost no faults whatsoever.
It is rare to stay in a room with such magnificent views particularly when the sun set over the Morven peninsula, just breathtaking, Scotland at its best. As for the hotel top marks. We had a modern room with its own balcony and the fabulous scenic/sea view, it is worth the extra cost for the balcony rooms. The bathroom was large and modern. The wall to ceiling windows give the room an even larger feel.
Good outdoor area to sit with your drinks all determined by the midges, they were biting.
Dinner can be either in the bar or restaurant and seemed to be more or less the same menu. The restaurant had a few more main course options.
We had smoked haddock chowder, full of fish and taste, excellent. The local langoustines were a dearer option but what a dish, 8 super sized prawns, fabulous. The main course scallops were a decent portion and properly cooked. The only grumble was the expensive rib eye which was chewy, a let down.
The staff were friendly and chatty particularly the guys, at meal service the girls appeared a little distant.
Overall an excellent visit and we will be back.
