We stayed for 2 nights at the start of October. Lovely spacious room. Absolutely masssive bed. Very interesting food - especially like that there is no evening menu and everything is made to your preferences - makes it a bit more exciting! Delicious breakfasts. Yummy afternoon tea. If you're a light sleeper like my partner then the creaky floorboards (and, unfortunately in our experience, extremely loud snorers!) may lead to an interrupted night's sleep. This is obviously no fault of the owners and staff who were extremely friendly and helpful thoughout our stay. Beautiful lounges and impressive billiards room.

Spent 3 nights in mid-Sept. Room, food, service was absolutely outstanding. Michael (chef/patron) and staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. We'll be back.

We stayed here for 2 nights and decided to have dinner on the first night, however, the food and experience was so good that we ate there for our second night too. Our room was lovely, nice touches with rolltop bath as well as shower, our bedroom had chocolates and fruit in the room. There are 2 lovely lounges with real log fires. Totally relaxing. The chef discusses what you like/dont like and then prepares a brilliant meal, either 3/5/7/9 courses. Food quality was outstanding! Thanks Michael!
Breakfast is also excellent and the staff couldn't do enough for us. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this to my friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the lismore room, very roomy, everything brand new and a very comfortable bed.

We booked in August, and arrived to find the hotel had re-opened under new ownership. The hospitality we received throughout our two day stay was so remarkable, it exceeded expectations right from our reception, by Sarah, through to the time we departed. The personal attention given throughout was a match for the very best of hotels. Barcaldine house is in a very peaceful location. We stayed in a superior room, which was clean, quiet and spacious. The public rooms were also comfortable, clean and pleasant to be in. Of particular note were the comfortable lounges and the elegant billiard room, with a full-sized table. Dining was an exceeding enjoyable experience, with great attention from Michael Riemenschneider, the new owner and chef. Food was all fresh and very professionally cooked and presented by the team, with the dishes set by Michael after he had first fully understood our preferences. This not only applied to dinner, but breakfast too. The new Barcaldine House joins a handful of quality hotels and restaurants that make Oban and North Argyll the seafood capital of the world. We will return.

Booked to stay here for two nights but after a day out on the 2nd night we returned to be told the hotel would be closing and we had to move on. Luckily we found somewhere to stay near by where we were told by locals that the owners had many money problems & were known to treat their guests and staff appallingly. No idea if it will open again but my advice is, if it is still owned by the same people then go elsewhere, not worth the money at all.
