The putechan lodge is where I visited a great aunt who lived there in the 60s. The new owners have made a fantastic job in making it such a beautiful place to spend the weekend. It brought back so many happy memories of my childhood. Our room was well appointed although a little chilly but the heater took the chill...

This hotel is fine, we stayed for three nights in summer of 2013. Location is good, rooms are OK although trying to look like a travelodge doesn't suit a west coast hotel. Food attempts to be fine dining but doesn't make the grade and is overpriced for what you get. The 8oz burger does not contain 8oz of burger! Service...

We booked via 5pm website and got great deal, but it would have been worth it even without discount. We had room 1 and, despite poor weather, I did brave it onto the decked balcony. Perhaps the room could have been a little warmer, but they had supplied a blow heater to augment the central heating. The decor throughout is...

Just come back from a two night stay at Putechan hotel. Everything was great - the room was spacious, really comfy beds, a wonderful, wonderful view and a lovely balcony to watch the crashing waves from. We had dinner both nights - lovely food and great value for money. Everyone friendly and helpful. Would love to go back for more!

We stayed for two nights in January at the Putechan Hotel in a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the sea. It was very stylish with contemporary furnishings and an outstanding view.

The hotel is fantastic, the staff are wonderful, so friendly and welcoming.

We have just returned from two nights dinner, bed and breakfast at Putechan and were impressed with every aspect of our stay. In terms of location, the hotel has a beautiful setting right on the beach and is a good base for exploring Campbeltown, Southend and Mull of Kintyre. Bearing in mind that we visited in February, public transport both...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Putechan Hotel is a former Duke of Argyll’s hunting lodge dating from 1872. It lies on the western edge of Kintyre facing the dramatic Atlantic Ocean with stunning views of the Isles of Islay, Jura and Gigha, together with incredible sunsets. It is surrounded by rugged grounds with an amazing pebble beach, strewn with giant rocks for our customers to enjoy. Take a walk along the beach or perhaps a BBQ while looking out for the dolphins and minke whales. The hotel, now under new ownership, has been extensively refurbished and extended, and can now offer a variety of bedrooms to suit different tastes and pockets; from the bridal suite with roll-top window bath looking out to Jura and Islay and balcony facing the ocean, our 1st floor premier rooms with balconies, ground floor doubles with sea views and a linked disabled room. We can also offer more budget accommodation in our rear facing rooms and ‘bunk rooms’. We also have a fully refurbished and extended Venue catering for a variety of events from weddings (up to 120 seated). Attached to the south wing is the sensational ‘Rock Room’ with one whole wall formed by a massive rock with French doors to the rear and front with stunning views over the ocean. The room seats around twenty and could be used for meetings, smaller intimate weddings, yoga/fitness work-outs, business meetings, or an exhibition hall for local artists. Tell us what event you want to run and we will make sure it is one to remember. The south-facing courtyard is a natural sun-trap and looks over onto the private beach. With practically no light pollution, and clever outdoor lighting systems the Putechan enjoys fantastic stargazing on a cloudless night. ... more   less
