“Dinner for 2”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

Second visit this time, with hard to please hubby! We were greeted and seated promptly with drinks in the pleasant bar area,orders taken and the starters of scallops and chicken liver pâté arrived. Hubby said his scallops were awesome and my pâté was lovely too. Mains arrived hubby's locally sourced venison burger with proper homemade chips were devoured quickly and my gin and tonic battered haddock with chips was enormous ( I had to take some home for the doggies) highly recommend that you pay a visit to this delightful inn, bill including drinks came to £45 which we thought was very reasonable for quality and quantity. Service and staff excellent. Just a little request for your sweet desert menu, Scottish Crannock would have finished meal off perfectly although button on jeans might of needed loosening !

We stopped there for lunch on our way to Oban, and the staff could not have been more gracious, more smiling, more helpful. The food was excellent and served very quickly. I do not not know about the hotel part but would recommend as a place to stop for lunch. The staff is actually from the area. Many other places we stopped at during our vacation the staff was not from Scotland and did not know the area.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night last week as we had heard that it had changed hands and had been modernised. There are improvements but there is still a way to go based on the room that we were given which was at the top of the hotel and was rather basic. There was a shortage of hot water and when I switched on the shower early in the morning the noise was like an engine starting up and continued throughout the shower's use.
On a positive note the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was acceptable.

Room Tip: Look for a lower level room.

Thank you very much for taking the time to give feedback on your stay at Taynuilt Hotel your are correct in saying the hotel is a work in progress as we have only just purchased the hotel in December 2012 and reopened it in march 2013 and it is still an on-going refurbishment.
we hope you chose to stay with us again if so please specify that you would prefer a room on the first floor and of any changes we can make to the room to make it less "basic" for you.

Recently taken over by a chef, the hotel is being done up and is looking good. We ate in a small cosy room rather than the dining room. Great food and a wide range of prices. The venison was delicious. Best range of bottled beers I've ever seen and all from the west coast, the beer from Colonsay was excellent. Enjoy!

We arrived at the Taynuilt Hotel early evening and although staff busy we were shown a table and menu promptly. The food was lovely, tasty and fresh. The lady at front of house was very helpful and very friendly and and a credit to the hotel. We enjoy dining out and this will definitely be one to add to the list in or around the Oban area.

That was some meal! Just popped in for some dinner with my mum and was blown away!
We had the scallops to start, fresh from the road in a small fishing village in Argyll, and were lovely and small, but plenty of them all piled up in a sort of tier rosette topped with rocket. And mains were superb! I had the local venison with amazing layered potatoes, beans and a carrot purée that I swear tasted like toffee! And my mum had Gin ad Tonic battered Haddock, which from what I was allowed to have was also very tasty!
Meals were reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of food and everyone was friendly and happy!
Had a great night, next time I will stay over! All the best to the hotel, I couldn't recommend you enough!!

Stayed here with a few family members recently, and had a very pleasant experience. The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. We ate at the restaurant in the evening and the food was very nice - we shared 2 starters and 2 desserts between the four of us as well as having main meals, and we were definitely satisfied with the portion sizes. The breakfast was also very nice - a good selection to choose from for your appetite. Would stay again!
