This is a wonderful traditional Scottish Spa hotel in a stunning setting by the river in Oban. We arrived in time for afternoon tea on the lawn, which was served in a silver tea service, accompanied by a bag piper playing.
Our room was large and spacious with a modern feel but with traditional Scottish tweed sofas in pinks to match the blinds and cushions. The hallway was spectacular but cosy with a roaring log fire and sofas. The restaurant food was the best of modern cuisine, served by waiters with impeccable service who's attention to detail included putting the plates down simultaneously.
The swimming pool was spacious and the Spa treatments good. We had a facial, and massage which made me so relaxed I fell asleep in the middle of it. Afterwards we sat in a resting room on chaise lounges and were served apricot sorbet and given jugs of iced lemon water to drink. Sheer luxury.
The surrounding area was stunning, peaceful and dramatic. For the first time in my life I wished I could play golf so i could soak up the scenery!
If you want to experience the best Scotland has to offer then this place is well worth the money.
It's best enjoyed by couples looking for a romantic getaway. And is also dog friendly and has cottages you can stay in as an alternative to the main house.
