Ar­danai­seig Ho­tel - Loch Awe

The Oban Times - - Feature -


The Scot­tish Ho­tel Awards have again named Ar­danai­seig Ho­tel as re­gional win­ners in sev­eral cat­e­gories for their Peo­ple of Ex­cel­lence awards 2017.

With a fairy tale set­ting on the banks of Loch Awe near Taynuilt, Ar­danai­seig is of­ten de­scribed as Scot­land’s most wildly ro­man­tic ho­tel. The 16bed­room Grade 2 listed man­sion was voted Coun­try House Ho­tel of 2015-16 and short­listed in the Lux­ury and Fine Din­ing cat­e­gories in the 2016-17 Scot­tish Ho­tel Awards.

Owned by a Lon­don an­tiques dealer, it show­cases ec­cen­tric or­na­ments and an­tique fur­ni­ture. Stat­ues re­cline in hedges and paint­ings of celebri­ties adorn the walls. Guests can stroll past streams and wa­ter­falls, dis­cover a se­cret walled gar­den and take a boat trip to the ho­tel’s pri­vate is­land.

Renowned as a pre­mier wed­ding venue, its bridal/ honey­moon suite is the ho­tel’s Boat­shed, lapped by the wa­ters of Scot­land’s third largest fresh­wa­ter loch. The ho­tel has 16 rooms plus a cot­tage in the grounds, and can com­fort­ably han­dle up to 50 peo­ple for a func­tion. Ser­vices can be held in a Greek-style am­phithe­atre on the lawns, in tra­di­tional stone-built churches in the area, or in the ho­tel it­self.

One of the lat­est tributes to its po­si­tion as one of the UK’s most sought af­ter wed­ding venues came from the Edi­tors of the Good Ho­tel Guide – They named it their favourite Scot­tish Ro­man­tic Ho­tel for 2017.
