“Beautiful in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2015

This is an excellent place to stay and dine. The room was spacious (room 8). The view was the loch. The service was extemely friendly and efficient. The food was limited but excellently prepared. It is in a remote location but accessible by ferry. Walking the grounds and the lock shore was very relaxing and beautiful.

Room Tip: Room 8 is perfect

This lovely small hotel certainly punches above its weight. From the moment you arrive you receive a warm welcome from the manager, Paul, and you feel immediately at home. Our splendid corner bedroom had every facility and when we asked for a tea tray one was delivered promptly with a flask of fresh milk - no cartons here ! The highlights of this hotel are its decor and ambience, the friendliness and professionalism of its staff and, above all, its amazing food. With a daily special list of fish dishes, over and above its comprehensive a la carte menu, you are certainly spoilt for choice. The food is superbly presented, of the highest quality and a credit to the chef and his team. Where else, at breakfast, would you be offered home made Danish pastries as well as porridge with cream and whisky in addition to a very wide range of the usual breakfast dishes containing the very best of local ingredients. Anyone fancying a Scottish hideaway overlooking the loch where you can view the seals basking could not do better than Kilcamb Lodge.

We were looking for a little bit of luxury whilst we explored the more remote parts of West Scotland that we hadn't been to before. We weren't disappointed. The hotel and staff were excellent. The food did not fail to match previous reviews and we would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. The ferry journey is nothing to worry about - you couldn't even feel that you were moving.

Booked the restuarant for dinner and Jean was amazingly helpful. Our dog had an accident and we had to change times and days - but no issues. Very dog friendly too, no problem letting them have a run around the extensive gardens. And no issue letting us borrow the loos to change out of our walking gear into something more appropriate for dinner. In fact everything was done with a smile - it makes so much difference.
A quiet pre-dinner drink in one of the two lounges, settled deep into a pair of the very comfortable armchairs whilst we perused the extensive menu and specials of the day, was followed by a great dinner. All served by very attentive and knowledgeable staff. A most enjoyable evening and from what we saw definitely a lovely place to stay. Definitely recommended.

We were given DB&B as a wedding present which included our 2 dogs. The room was well appointed for both humans and dogs alike. Only downside of the room is that there was no hospitality tray, although tea/coffee can be requested.
We enjoyed a pre dinner drink from the bar in the lounge which is very comfortable. Dinner was a delightful experience with delicious and beautifully prepared food. The staff were extremely efficient and very friendly. Would recommend.

This was our second visit to Kilcamb Lodge. We had spent a long weekend here a couple of years ago and had been blown away by the spectacular setting of the hotel, with its beautiful lawn leading straight to the loch. This time we came back for one night en route to our holiday cottage on the peninsula, with our dog in tow, and had an even more brilliant experience. Firstly, it was an absolute joy to return to such a peaceful and beautiful environment. It was just as wonderful as we had remembered. The house itself is cosy and warm, and the big living room is beautifully furnished and the perfect place to have an aperitif before dinner. We were given a dog friendly room - and we were really happy to see that it was in fact a lovely, comfortable room just like the one we had previously stayed in, the only difference being it was towards the back of the house with easy access to the outside stairs that lead directly to the garden, as dogs are not permitted in the living and dining areas of the hotel - which is a great idea as it preserves the tranquility for all guests! They sweetly provided a water bowl, biscuits and a towel for the dog in the room as a matter of course. So, as a dog friendly hotel, it gets absolute top marks and needless to say our dog was delighted at being let out straight into a huge lawn to romp around on! The service was also fantastic. We were greeted warmly and nothing was too much trouble. All the staff we met were extremely polite, friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was fantastic - beautifully done local produce, and was actually better, we think, than when we were last there. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice, and all meals and drinks can be taken (daylight allowing)looking out of the windows onto the loch. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather while we were on Ardnamurchan so later in the week, we came back to Kilcamb after some walking in the Strontian area for coffee and also one day for lunch (langoustines, yum), sitting outside in the brilliant sunshine overlooking the water. It was absolutely heavenly! For us, Kilcamb Lodge is quite a special place. It's a lovely, low-key country house hotel in a beautiful, peaceful setting where, if you are lucky, you can either be out sitting in the sunshine taking in the view, or else get cosy and enjoy wonderful food after a day out in the wilder Scottish weather.
