The taynuilt hotel is a quirky old gem with all the great characteristics of an old Scottish Inn we stayed the night as we were dinning in the new Etive restaurant, our room was spotless and the bed very comfortable, our breakfast in the morning was as you would expect of a very high standard. We will definitely return 😊

We had a lovely time. The food was great. We were the first guests that got to experience the revamped restaurant 'Etive'. It's obvious lots of thought, care and attention was put into the restaurant and the bar. The service was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. A lovely area to visit.

Had such a lovely few days at the Taynuilt Hotel for my partners Birthday. All the food here was absolutely spot on! Definitely the best scrambled egg I have ever tasted, it just melted in your mouth. At dinner the fish pie was a firm favourite & the turkey...well that was something else!
