Good Hotel Guide Review

Wildlife spotters are in their element at this 18th-century lodge in ‘a beautiful setting’ on the shores of Loch Sunart. It once served as a garrison for troops hunting down Jacobite rebels, and was dubbed ‘The Barracks’, but it is anything but barrack-like now. A Guide trusty reports on a ‘major refurbishment of all public areas’ and new bedroom furnishings. The style is traditional country-house comfortable, as befits a hotel in these remote surroundings. Bedrooms have tartans, florals, stripes, antiques, home-made shortbread. One has patio doors onto a balcony, with loch and garden views. Bathrooms, some with bath and walk-in shower, have underfloor heating. You can eat casually in the brasserie, while, in the restaurant, a tasting menu includes dishes such as Angus beef fillet, smoked applewood mash, slow-cooked ox cheek, caramelised onion purée. One reader found the service at dinner below par, but our trusty fared better, with ‘excellent, pro-active service from a smartly dressed waiter keen to ensure warmth and comfort’. Breakfast on a kipper or a full Scottish before a day's mountain-biking, kayaking, boating or wild swimming. (Robert Gower)

Comments about Kilcamb Lodge

The situation on the sea loch is beautiful; perfect for wild swimmers. Attentive staff, very responsive; huge five-course dinner menu; comfortable beds and warm bathrooms. Covid 19 guidelines well maintained. But tired decor throughout the hotel. We felt it was expensive .for dinner bed and breakfast. The same dinner menu came round again within six days. A useful hotel in Ardnamurchan, quiet and peaceful,. - Tessa Stuart - August 2020
Superb country house hotel in a remote and extraordinary setting. My loch-facing room was really a suite with a separate sitting area, and had gorgeous views both as I arrived in late afternoon and at dawn. The welcome was warm, the lounge exceptionally pleasant, and both dinner and breakfast exceptional. - James Steward - October 2019
Beautiful setting on the shores of Loch Sunart with marvellous mountain scenery around. Well furnished and comfortable. Friendly and efficient staff. Delicious food (especially home-made bread at dinner). Wonderful bedside light! - AL - September 2019
