Loved our one night here and wish we could have stayed longer. A very nice dinner, an excellent breakfast, very comfortable room and, most of all, extremely friendly and helpful service. James took lots of time to advise us on walks and tourist attractions nearby, and both he and his wife made time to chat to all their guests which gave the whole stay a very friendly and comfortable feel. Great customer service, bravo!

After living in Strontian for just over a year, it is always great to be back in such an amazing place with some amazing people. The purpose of this visit was to climb Ben Nevis for charity and to go to the annual Strontian Show Dance. From arriving, we were made very welcome. The rooms we stayed in were excellent and the attention to detail and hosting skills of James and Michelle were great. Dinner on the Friday evening was very busy as it was the show weekend, but Michelle was very accommodating and managed to squeeze us in, which when combined with the great food and brilliant atmosphere from the locals, was excellent as always. As we had an extremely early start on the day of our climb, we didn't have time for breakfast, however James prepared us a bacon sandwich and wrapped it up for us so that we were ready and raring to go. Every aspect of our stay was great and I cannot thank Michelle and James enough for making it a pleasure, as always, to be back in such a special place.

Room Tip: Room 5 (Double Room) has an amazing view of Loch Sunart. Also, if ordering breakfast, the Stornoway...

Friendliness in this hotel was first class. The view from room 6 was breathtaking looking out to Loch Sunart. Room decor was lovely and very comfy bed. Breakfast and dinner was very tasty and plenty of choices and good sized helpings. Residents lounge was very comfortable with lovely couches and plenty of books and music to listen too. Will certainly return if in this area.

Room Tip: Room 6 had lovely view of loch

We stopped for two nights on our biking holiday across the Highlands. Our room was small but clean with an awesome view of the water. The hosts were friendly and solicitous. The food was good average pub type food. There are many wonderful places to hike nearby and I would have liked to do even more of that!

Hotel very nice. Had comfortable rooms and there was a lovely cosy Residents Lounge. Food in Restaurant very good, plenty of choice and good sized helpings. Substantial Scottish breakfast included but porridge was only available in cooler months.

This was certainly an excellent traditional hotel in a wild area, Ardnamurchan in the Scottish highlands. This ancient inn has been carefully refurbished to a very high standard, and run by a friendly couple who produced excellent food. A wildlife hide up the road treated us to many seals, herons and other seabirds. There were otters somewhere but we did not stay around long enough to see them. The Ardnamurchan lighthouse is well worth a visit. This is the town (village, really) that gave its name to the element Strontium. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have views of Loch Sunart.
