Make like a laird and live it up, Scottish-style, at the stately Stonefield Castle. This national treasure sits amid 60 acres of gorgeous woodland and gardens, which reach down to the shores of the sublimely beautiful Loch Fyne. Dating back to 1837, the castle is now a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning hotel but remains home to some splendid examples of Scottish baronial architecture and style. Expect original furnishings, wood paneling, ornate ceilings and marble fireplaces.
While the décor is as traditional as you could wish, the hospitality is as warm as the roaring fire you’ll curl up next to with your evening whisky. Tuck into oysters from Loch Fyne in the restaurant, before choosing from a delicious roll-call of enticing Scottish fare, from venison haunch to whole lobster. No evening is complete without a nightcap, of course, so head to the bar for a wee tipple while you plan the next day’s adventures. Might we suggest ambling through the woodland and down to the loch?
How to Get There
Made to feel most welcome on arrival, show to our room personally after check in. Had an enjoyable relaxing drink in the bar downstairs while perusing both the food and wine menus. Dinner wa# excellent with friendly service throughout. Beds were very comfortable so had a great nights sleep followed by a great choice in items to choose from for breakfast. Felt relaxed and happy after our overnight stay would definitely recommend it to both family and friends.
Spent a sun/mon two night break here with our Golden Retriever Mac and had a great time. The room was large and had a modern bathroom overlooking the Loch. We could take Mac into the bar for breakfast and dinner which is always a plus in hotels especially if you don't like leaving them in the room or car. Lovely grounds for a walk and plenty of places to visit nearby. Staff were great and Mac was fussed over continuously. Will definitely be back.
We spent a few nights here with our friends. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome. The Castle itself is set in stunning grounds with lots of walks along the shore or forest. The breakfast/dining room looks out over the Loch which us a stunning view. We booked Loch view rooms but wouldn't bother next time as we spent very little time in our rooms. The rooms can be very noisy as no sound proofing, you here everyone in the corridors. The bedrooms are rather small so would upgrade next time. They are however clean, nicely furnished with spotless bathrooms. The games room was very popular with our partners and many other male guests. They have a fabulous terrace you can sit out on with your drinks. The bar too was very cosy. The staff are all friendly and go out of their way to be helpful and make your stay a wonderful experience. We had unexpectedly fantastic warm and sunny by weather, which was a great bonus. Lovely scenery, visited Oban during our stay. We were all sad to leave but will certainly visit again. Highly recommended
My wife and I stayed here between 18th -20th April 2018, a birthday gift from our eldest son.We stayed in Room 37; our room was at the rear overlooking Loch Fyne. It was a large room with table and seating .
This grande hotel, built in 1837, an example of baronial architecture is set in 60 acres and is approx 2 miles from the fishing village of Tarbert
The restaurant is large with spectacular views over the loch in a very romantic setting.
Sean, the food & beverage manager was extremely welcoming, helpful and an asset to the hotel.
We enjoyed our 2 night stay and would recommend the hotel
Very disappointed for the amount of money we paid for a one night stay. This hotel is catering for the tourists who want to stay in a Scottish castle. Rooms very tired and in need of decorating, we had breakfast which was not good. Staff were lovely and very helpful, however I would not recommend this hotel to my friends.
