    Dark, dinghy and depressing

    We were really looking forward to our stay. Unfortunately the hotel were unable to satisfy our dinner reservations due to staffing issues, which happens, but no effort was made to offer alternatives or assistance in arranging an alternative which, due to the hotels remote location, meant an hours drive. Our room was booked for two adults and an 11 year old child but it was far too small. We could barely walk around the beds and could not open the wardrobe. However, the room had recently been refurbished and would have been comfortable for two people. The nice lounge / bar area was reserved for breakfast (no idea why this wasn't served in the restaurant) but was laid for breakfast in the afternoon so we had to sit in the "tap room" iwhich was dark, dirty and had holes in the roof. It was also frequently silent with no atmosphere at all. There was a large and airy restaurant but this was closed off until the last day. On our last evening the restaurant was opened and the environment and staff were nice but it was like having dinner at my Grandma's (I love my grandmother but she was of another time when it came to culinary matters) The staff were very nice overall but the whole place lacked warmth and atmosphere. It was a bit depressing really.

    Very good small hotel

    Enjoyed a one night stay in comfortable, stylish room. The food and service at dinner and breakfast was very good. Overall the interior of the hotel was very fresh and pleasant. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. Overall it was a very good stay and good value for that area.

    Fabulous place & fantastic views

    Wonderful and welcoming place to stay, with the most breathtaking views, the staff are really helpful and friendly and the food was sensational with plenty of variety on the menu. The room was spacious and clean and big enough to have a travel cot. Thank you for a lovely stay and I would definitely return and recommend.

    Nice hotel in an amazing location

    Nice dog-friendly hotel. Rooms have recently been refurbished and are very nice. Good, friendly service from the staff. Food orders were a little slow coming out of the kitchen, but the staff explained that they were busy and a bit under-staffed. But the food was worth the wait. The location of the hotel is fabulous and the views of the loch from the garden are amazing. All in all, we had a very nice stay. Would stay again.

    Friendly and luxurious + memorable interior design

    Everything was spotlessly clean and brand new when I arrived. The refurbishment of the rooms was state-of-the-art and stylish but took a bit of getting used to as black was a predominate colour choice. After the initial surprise, I found the room had a cosy welcoming feeling and was really impressed by the bathroom. Everything was very comfortable and staff were extremely helpful in a relaxed and professional way. The food choice was varied and interesting and everything was cooked to perfection. My only (slight) gripe was that wine and whisky choices that I made from the menu turned out not to be available. This happened four or five times. On the plus side, the staff were helpful and knowledgeable in providing other choices and even gave me a free glass at one point by way of compensation. I would definitely recommend staying at the hotel.

    Great choice for a stop-over

    Our overnight stay was at the start of September 2020 so it was quiet, which was fine for me. The owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We had dinner and drinks in the bar (seabass - very tasty!) and chatted with another couple and their dog. There is a large dining hall but the bar had more character so we stayed there. As the weather was behaving itself we could sit outside for a bit and gaze over the water. This was tranquillity - it's so peaceful here. There's not much to Adfern but again that was absolutely fine by me. After a long drive from Mallaig, stopping off at Oban, I was happy for some peace and quiet. There is a sizeable boatyard close by and there was a small (well-behaved) group of young sailing types in the bar but I guess it was out of season perhaps. The room was absolutely fine (the Ghia room I think) and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was a decent size with a large shower. The Galley was a random choice as neither my wife nor I were familiar with this part of the country. I'm so glad we chose to stay here though - lovely place. We would definitely stay here again.
