The people who work here are the business. We arrived on spec after a car problem developed and needed somewhere to stay, and our luck was in. There was a really comfortable room with a fantastic view and it was great. The staff could not have been more helpful - giving us telephone numbers of local garages (thanks Heather for...

Where do you go if you need a fix of beauty and ozone with a dog? Ardfern that's where. The Galley of Lorne is a great Pub Restaurant with excellent clean and nicely appointed simple rooms. We were late arriving but the friendly staff took our order for dinner from the car en route! It's a lively pub, it was...

Very friendly helpful staff. Great comfortable rooms with views of the loch Breakfast was perfect. Bar meals were lovely and the staff very helpful. Friday night the bar gets very busy (seems like the whole village meet up) but its great to see the place so alive and happy. great atmosphere.

We booked the Skye room for 5 nights. On arrival Anna made us very welcome and showed us to our room - comfortable, clean, spacious and the most stunning view over the loch. We ate every night in the restaurant- sometimes 3 courses, other times 2 courses, on one occasion I simply had two starters .... the Chef and waitresses...

My sister bought us this through a Groupon deal. We had a week night stay there which was very comfortable. Room was great with a lovely view of the loch. Even though when looking out the window the decking was there attached to the dining room it was still a lovely view - even on a very wet day! Nice...

Lovely hotel in a beautiful scenic area. Great breakfast as part of the price! Also a very good selection of food on the dinner menu. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms clean, only down fall was the bed, very old and very uncomfortable mattress.

Spent two nights on a B&B at this little gem on a special deal. Great location for exploring the area. Excellent food, rooms are spotless with all the trimmings. Had evening meal on both nights and met the locals, who are very chatty. The staff, I have to give 5 out of 5 for their service. 👏👏👏👏👏👍

We spent a night at the Galley of Lorne Inn, we already knew our room did not have a window, but it was a shame that we could not enjoy the spectacular views of the Loch. It was also a shame that the main dining area was closed so we could not have our meal with the same view. However,...
