Recently returned from this hotel after three lovely days in a Junior Suite (Loch Awe Suite) aptly named. The room has a wonderful view of the loch and mountains. The room is spacious and well appointed with two chairs right by your window where you can sit and take in the memorable view with a glass of sherry, supplied in its own decanter by the hotel, a nice touch. The bathroom is huge, two sinks a huge stand-alone roll top bath and walk-in rain shower. Moulton and Brown toiletries abound. Although we ate in the hotel on each evening we only had the six course dinner on the first night, believe me it is enough, although not huge portions you felt as though you had eaten enough and of course a bottle of wine helps to wash it down. Its nice when the staff look for you to give you your own personal menu designed for the evening with your name on it, just another nice thought. We had a high tea second night as we had lunch earlier in Oban, soup (delicious) sandwiches and scones with cream and jam - heaven.The hotel serves up "bar meals" as an alternative to the fine dining and this was equally as good, we were served Rump of Beef with vegetables and fries, a sweet and cheese and biscuits and coffee if required at a reasonable price again excellent. The staff were all very friendly, Natalie who looked after us the first night and the rest highly efficient at what they do best - look after you. The general manager Fiona was always around for a friendly chat and runs the whole place very well. The hotel was very quiet when we were there most of the rooms available which was nice for us as felt pampered even more! Only downside I have to report was a problem we found with the shower ie no hot water on a couple of occasions, resulting in me having to shower in another room quite a distance from our room, inconvenient and irritating. The pipes were also making some strange noises early in morning, I reported this to Fiona who promised to have it looked at.I would report however, that because of the inconvenience to us we were offered a free drink that evening which was much appreciated. Several people mention the 7mile single track road, it is a bit daunting first time you use it and yes the locals who know it well do race along but just get into a passing place and they are happy to whip past you. Do watch out however, for the HGV's carrying logs and the local bus, we seemed to meet one of them every time we used the road! Its good fun when you get used to it. All in all the hotel is an excellent experience which I thoroughly recommend, its a remote place but tranquil with wonderful scenery to go with it, yes a bit expensive but hey you get what you pay for.
