Stayed on business. Rooms comfortable although not generously sized. Lunchtime smell of over used deep frying oil had disappeared by dinner time. Good mix of local seafood and staples on the dinner menu should please everyone.

The menu was very extensive lots of good local fresh fish, which is typical of the area. Service was very friendly and welcoming. The bar had a very relaxed atmosphere with a real cross section of...

We stopped off at The Oyster Inn for a drink or two on our overnight stay to Connel Ferry and we're delighted with what we found. The bar is really warm and welcoming, very traditionally Scottish with its old stone walls, wooden booths and log fire. There's a great range of drinks on offer from the bar in particular their...

We stayed at the Oyster Inn 10-12th Feb after it was recommended to us by our parents who stayed over Hogmanay. What a fantastic place! Location is idyllic with gorgeous views out across the water, the Connel Bridge and the Falls of Lora. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful and the food at the bar and breakfast was delicious!!...

My partner and I stayed for one night, just a little well deserved get away. I didn't fancy the formality of a hotel and having eaten at the Glue Pot a few years ago i remembered this little Inn and booked for a night. The Inn is cosy and informal, the staff were attentive and friendly. Roaring fire, cosy and...

I recently stayed here for a business trip and thoroughly enjoyed it, the room was well decorated, the bed comfortable and the shower great. We ate in The Glue Pot as the restaurant was closed for the winter season and I was not disappointed. I had the seafood linguine which was superb and all of my colleagues were also suitably...

This was our first visit to the area and we spent two nights at The Oyster Inn. Excellent location with views over the bay to Lismore & Mull. The rooms were well appointed, fresh and very clean. The menu was quite extensive and offered great seafood, fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. The quality of the food we had was excellent...

Stopped in for a cosy evening meal - we both opted for the steak pie which was over generous in size and a wee bit off putting, had a look around at other dishes coming out and they are all mega mega!
