I have just returned to Oxfordshire from a very enjoyable and relaxing stay of two nights at Arisaig House. The house was recommended and we would certainly return. Sarah who runs the house is charming and nothing is too much trouble for her or any of her staff. The house itself sits in a wonderful location with beautiful views of the loch, if I enjoyed the views in November goodness knows what they would be like on a summer's day!
I have some dietary requirements which I made sure I emailed before our stay and this was dealt with care, professionalism and understanding. We eat dinner at Arisaig each night in a cosy room dressed with charming furnishings, with a large log fire, accompanied by very mellow Scottish music in the background. The food was better than I have experienced in some very costly restaurants or hotels and the attention to detail especially with my dietary requirements was wonderful. You can tell when food is local and fresh and when the cook/chef understands food when they are able to cook food of this quality and variety. Everything was prepared and cooked well and was delicious- and this also included the Scottish breakfast. In fact I found it difficult to choose at breakfast time which is very rare when you have dietary limitations.
The bedroom was very large with twin aspect large windows for a fabulous view of the loch, it also had an extremely comfortable bed, good shower and the sofa and coffee table was a lovely touch to sit and read and enjoy the view.
This is a very different experience to staying in a corporate plastic hotel! If you want a homely, feel, delightful interior design and period furnishings, log fires, personal service and great food in a true Scottish house book Arisaig House - you will not be disappointed!
I had a wonderful time here with friends, and I will certainly return next time with my husband!
It was a pleasure!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Arisaig House is a luxurious but homely guest house offering freshly prepared seasonal meals, picnic lunches, homemade treats and the chance to really put your feet up! Set within 19 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland A typical bedroom will have its share of views: the rose garden, the woodland garden beyond, and to the sea and maybe an island or two. The wonderful light is a constantly changing backdrop with the chance of a finale of a full west coast sunset blazing and gradually fading. Peace and comfort pervade. Our kitchen is supported by its own seasonal garden produce and a positive galaxy of local specialities: Seafood - lobster, scallops, crabs, local fresh salmon, smoked salmon and oysters - in demand worldwide but fresh on our doorstep; venison, game and hill lamb in their season. There's really no shortage of food pleasures at any time of year. Picnic lunches are another speciality, with all that walking country out there and a host of things to see and do. ... more less
