10/10 Exceptional

Charming, stunning and quiet location. Just wonderful in an old world opulence kind of way. We loved it!

8/10 Very good

Beautiful "Remote" location
First let me say our overall stay at the hotel was very good, but the value for the money? When we arrived at check in late afternoon, I was at first shocked when they told me that we could not have the cottage which we had reserved. However they graciously upgraded us to two upstairs rooms with a Lakeview at no additional charge. The rooms were Ichrachan and Tervine. Both were very spacious and nice. Had I paid full price for the rooms, I would have been very disappointed. I happen to also look at the cottage as we drove in, and I'm glad that we did not get that location, as it was a very long distance from the main house. Dinner was very good, although probably about 30 to 40% overpriced. The biggest issue I think for any traveler would be the extended drive on a single lane road through about 12 to 14 miles of countryside in order to arrive at the hotel. This does provide outstanding solitude. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel for someone who desires a tremendous amount of solitude, since the closest town of any significance is about a 30 to 45 minute drive away.

Nice views shame about the value
stayed for two days. Beautiful location and lovely building. However the cost was not value for money. I would think something around £140 per night for a basic room is more reasonable than the £230 we were charged. It is also in a remote location and you have to travel for miles down a single track lane which may be difficult for drivers who lack confidence or who may have disabilities. Food was also not value for money.

Not quite as good as we hoped.
We have been before two years ago and enjoyed so much that we went with friends . It is a fabulous location and in the middle of nowhere. The food , although good quality is minimal and after dinner with nowhere to go , we were hungry.

a real "estate" hotel
not a typical hotel. out in the middle of nowhere. interesting amenities: reading in the drawing room, fishing, nature walks, skeet shooting and motorboats to take out onto the loch (lake). Fine dining

6/10 Good

delightful location but eat elsewhere
Ardanaiseig is in a fantastic location set in its own grounds on the edge of Loch Awe. The staff were very kind and helpful, and the building is impressive with some interesting art. We felt they let themselves down, however, with a disappointing response when we drew their attention to overcharging for our breakfasts. We were charged for four cooked breakfasts (£16.50 pp) for each of the three days we stayed, when in fact there were only three of us and we only took the adequate, but somewhat meagre, buffet breakfasts (still priced rather generously at £9.50 pp). They bundled it all up into the room charge, so it was not immediately clear at the time of checkout what had been done. It took a frustrating number of emails in the subsequent days, during which we received a number of denials from 'reception' before finally getting the £100 odd pounds refunded. The dinner we took at the hotel was also expensive and very underwhelming. We recommend staying at the Ardanaseig but taking all your meals elsewhere Etive at the Taynuilt Inn (dinner only) is amazing, with a wonderful host, and significantly less expensive than Ardanaseig's restaurant, but make sure you book well in advance. The Kilchrenan Inn which is a little closer serves very decent gastropub grub.

I loved this!
This is not a luxury hotel - it's not the most up-to-date or modern. But it feels authentic while being extremely comfortable and having nice amenities like beautiful grounds and common rooms

When in heaven, don't leave
Location was literally the middle of nowhere, which was wonderful. Totally disconnected but treated so well and spoiled by the staff. The room was delightful, bathroom was comfortable, parking, wifi, food and drinks were perfect. Staff was adorable. We couldn't be happier and we will come back. Many more times.
