My husband and I booked a stay at this hotel from 18 -21 April Easter weekend 2014 . We had a 20 min ferry crossing , we arrived at hotel and were met by lovely man who we took to be the owner , he covers reception bar etc . We were on half board package an easter special . The hotel is in a beautiful setting overlooking the beach . We were in room 12 which had a view of beer garden and beach great room , tv hairdrier tea making facility. Our first night we had the most amazing battered fish and chips huge portion really lovely soup to start and lovely sweets . Also their is a veggie option . The breakfast was huge full scottish or mackerel choice of eggs , cereal fruit juice. grapefruit or prunes . This is a very friendly laid back kind of hotel . Valerie the receptionist is very nice and helpful , Jamie our waiter from Largs was very attentive , he helped me with my ipad and phone , had a few problems . Our waitress too didnt get her name she was really nice very friendly . We went to both sides of the island we took our car over , but really you wouldnt need it , if you wanted to you could hire bikes or canoes . There is also a campsite albiet small down at the Boat house , where they serve lovely food ,lobsters were 25 pounds , we didnt eat their but heard food was good. The island is only 7 miles wide , lots of wee sandy beaches with one all to yourself well we had . Post office and general store sell most things , girl in their also very nice and helpful . We didnt manage to Achamore gardens , costs 6 pounds I think . Their is also sc accomodation different sizes and costs . These sell up very quickly . Their is only the one hotel on Gigha , cost to take car over was 14 return and about 5 pound return each passenger . We found this beautiful Scottish gem and we are going back for one week later this year . If you want to have a quiet break with beautiful food, brilliant quiet beaches, good service , and you are deciding where to go , give Gigha a try you will not be dissapointed we werent .
