12th September 2021:

The Kilfinan is a comfortable relaxed hotel in a peaceful countryside hamlet. Our room and en suite were spacious and spotless with good quality toiletries and a huge, comfortable bed. An interesting menu of tasty meals and a great selection at the bar. We were made to feel very welcome and recommend the hotel, it’s a great asset to the local community, wish it was our local!

Tips:

There are shops, hotels and cafes across in Kames and Tighnabruaich worth a look. Lovely views and a tidal spit at Otter Ferry, where refreshments are also available. Castle ruins at Toward and Lachlan. Nice walk from the hotel to the beach. Carved stones at Kilmodan church. Ferry across to Kintyre from Portavadie, didn’t go this time but from previous experience another lovely area to explore.

Felt like a home away from home as Helena and Chris were so friendly and accommodating. WiFi was really good and fast, especially considering the remoteness of the hotel. We stayed in room 1 which was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. The owners have strived to stock the bar with locally produced spirits and beer. There is a nice beer garden but the bar has a cosy feel when it is colder and the fire is on. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We had a great one night stay that we wish had been longer. Our dog was so welcomed as well as ourselves. All areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean and COVID safe without it being in our face. Lovely wee outdoor area for drinks - what an evening sun trap. Food was delicious and importantly for us, some of it was local. We will come back again.

Tips:

Take a picnic to one of the many wee beaches and coves and just watch the sky. Slow down here ...

Fantastic hotel, in a remote tranquil location with great access to other areas of Argyll. This truly is a hidden gem and we very much loved our stay. Chris and Helena were the perfect hosts and staying at the Kilfinan Hotel was more like going to stay with friends. You truly do an amazing job and it is wonderful to hear your passion for this lovely hotel. The breakfast was delicious with a great choice and all cooked fresh and to order and so was dinner. Thank you for making my wee mum so welcome, she loved it so much we hope to be able to return again soon. Thank you.

Lovely rural inn tucked away on the Cowal peninsular. The new owners are trying very hard to make a great place to stay, drink and eat. Rooms are quite simple but comfortable, food is local and cooked to a high standard and the bar is welcoming with a log fire or outside seats with a view across the stream towards Loch Finn.

Tips:

Ferries on and off the peninsula makes access quite easy, racially from the west. Plenty of local walks including a short one down to the beach to see the wildlife.

We had a wonderful stay. Our room had a beautiful view, waking up to birdsong—even after a night at their historic bar sloshing pints down—was a real joy. One of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept in and water on tap from a local spring made feeling hungover out of the question. The breakfast options were damn good too, easily one of the best black puddings I’ve ever eaten in a full Scottish, so much so that I am now a convert to the congealed goodness I once loathed. It made me brave enough to try the scallop/black pudding and pea purée starter for dinner that evening, which proved to be absolutely delicious (followed by an even better steak main). The locally sourced toiletries were lovely (and made great bubbles in the bath!). Chris and Helena are great, they’re really accommodating and always jovial, in spite of their clearly packed and tight schedules. It’s really bringing something a little bit new to the area, including a reinvigorated kitchen with tasty local produce, British bev from near and far (who goes to Kilfinan to drink Peroni?), and again (incredibly!) comfortable beds, all while maintaining the historic beauty of the building and its interior decor. We wish them both all the best in the future, will definitely be staying here again.

Tips:

Our only minor setback was being unable to drive, so we were slightly limited in what we could do, bringing blisters galore upon ourselves stoating up and down Kilfinan to the beach and coastal areas. Bring a car, or a bike! In spite of that, hanging around the hotel was lovely, it had an atmosphere that us city-folks only dream of, and if you lack much mobility, otter estate’s beach isn’t more than 20 mins walk from the Hotel, and at low tide you might find more than a few cockles to eat for lunch...

We enjoyed our stay at Kilfinan Hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and both Helena and Chris could not do enough to make our stay perfect.

As the main purpose of our stay was to meet up with our grandson and his family we did not do much sightseeing as we visited them at the holiday cottage were they were staying.

Helena and Chris have made a great start on what for them is a life changing enterprise. Friendly and helpful both of the new owners looked after us well throughout our stay. Hopefully as business builds they can take on more staff, giving them the opportunity relax with their guests.

Tips:

The Cowal peninsula is a beautiful location and for anyone interested in walking and wildlife. A drive along the C11 provides one of the most scenic routes in Scotland.

We really enjoyed our stay Beds were super comfy! Food was great quality Great to be able to bring the dog Obviously some teething problems with service but everyone very friendly so didn’t hamper our enjoyment at all. Teething issues: didn’t get a few things that we ordered/had to remind. No veggie option on menu (no biggie for us but unusual these days). No fruit delivered with the “pastries and fruit” breakfast option. Breakfast menu probably a little limited vs what i would expect for the price. I’d advise putting out jams/butter on breakfast table to reduce delays and workload for server! But again we REALLY enjoyed our stay. Gin was great!
