We are open to non residents for breakfast, coffee, seafood lunch, afternoon tea and of course dinner

The atmosphere we create is one of relaxed elegance where friendly staff are attentive & efficient yet not too formal. Our 11 bedrooms and suites are all uniquely designed to soothe your mind before enjoying a superb dinner in our romantic candlelit restaurant.

Don't forget we also offer luxury self catering accommodation in our 2 luxury holiday cottages to rent, Bramble Cottage and The Old Smithy, for those who would like a little more independence but with the flexibility of having hotel facilities right next door. The best of both worlds.


Each of the eleven individually styled luxury bedrooms and suites have all recently been redecorated and convey a warm and inviting style of their own. Each room is individually decorated with designer fabrics and wallpapers from such labels as Jane Churchill, Zoffany, Colfax and Fowler and Designers Guild, with styles varying from 'country house' to something a little more 'boutique'. Most of the rooms have stunning views of Loch Linnhe with the Morvern mountains behind.

All rooms have satellite television, DVD and CD players, with a choice of over 130 DVD's to choose from our extensive library. All rooms also have modern iPod docks.  Free Wi- Fi access is available throughout the hotel including all bedrooms. All rooms are of course, en-suite with modern bathrooms with marble tops.
