This time we were in the But and Ben as we had the dog with us, by far the best idea for dog owners. The room like all the other courtyard rooms was spacious and restful with the added bonus of opening out onto the countryside behind... (the dog loved that bit) Relaxed as ever and every comfort thought of, you could chill forever in the homely, chic rooms here. Food was as ever, delicious. I am not a puddings person, but have to admit that the fireworks display of flavours, popping in my mouth, will stay with me for a long time. Banana Rum Parfait with the sharp seville orange compote and candied peel was a real 5th of November in the mouth.... lovely fellow guests, coffee by the log fire, in a word, Civilised. See you next year!

This hotel is some 5 miles down a narrow single tracked road to nowhere. Nestled beneath brooding hills by a gentle loch, you stumble across Monachyle Mhor and it is a joy. We had an amazing room (15) which was large, spacious and airy. The bed was immensely comfortable and, apart from one serious gurgling radiator, we had no complaints - although we felt we needed an engineering degree to work out the bath controls!! There is almost no WiFi of any usable bandwidth, which is one of the reasons why this is a great place to disconnect and unwind. Nice restaurant (reviewed separately) and the Full Scottish breakfast magnificent.

Seaplane lunch experience flying from Loch Lomond. 3 excellent courses seated outside on a beautiful September day. Location stunning, meal and service exceptional. A day to remember

A small, historic dwelling with plenty of character in a stunningly remote location situated in a mountain valley and reached along a narrow, twisting loch-side road. This is a place for rest and relaxation far removed from the faster pace of life and boasts an informal, welcoming, homely and comfortable atmosphere. Wi-Fi was relatively slow and my mobile signal disappeared, thus offering a real retreat where a more manic life-style was completely forgotten. Warm, cosy, comfortable and clean with all facilities, our food allergies and intolerances were noted upon our check-in from friendly staff.
Food quality was excellent but this is refined dining and offers limited choice. With everything selected from a menu and individually prepared and served, service can be slow. There was no breakfast buffet so we had an excruciatingly long wait for everything on the second morning when the small restaurant was full.
It could be described as expensive: 2-course lunch cost £24.00 per person; 3 courses £30.00; soup and a sandwich £11.00. Evening dinner had just one price at £65.00 per person. Alternative eating places are not close.
Staff were helpful although the male waiters still have to learn that smiling and rapport are allowed!
Sufficient parking space is available.
A stay here is not cheap. However, if one places true value on scenery, tranquillity, relaxation and nature, it is not expensive either .. although it depends on our individual viewpoint!

We were invited to stay in this wonderful hotel with friends to celebrate a 50th birthday. After an easy flight to Edinburgh, a somewhat fractious experience with the hire car firm and the sat nav sending us along a rough old road for 7 miles, we eventually and thankfully arrived at this stunning place....Monachyle Mhor. Straight away we felt welcome. Our room [11] was fantastic. Spacious, stylish, very clean and welcoming. As a vegetarian I am very used to making do with what's available but my taste buds were about to be sent to heaven. The 1st evening we had our meal in Mhor 84 just a few miles away. Belonging to the same family we were again made very welcome and sat down to a delicious meal. After an incredibly comfortable sleep, breakfast at Monacyle Mhor was simply delicious and great thought had been given to the veggie option. We swam in a river and the locke and found Robbie Burns gravestone after a steady walk through woodland. Returning to the hotel we had lunch. Probably the best soup we have ever tasted and made even better by the stunning views and fresh air. In the evening it was party time and an old dutch barn, now converted into a function area, had been beauifully decorated and made ready for an amazing feast. A truly amazing feast. This place has to be visited and is worth every penny. you won't be at all disappointed. Thank you to the Lewis family for giving us a memorable weekend.
WE'LL BE BACK!
