Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Island
The Isle of Eriska, Hotel, Spa & Island is more than a 5-star hotel. Only 11 miles from Oban, it also has spa and restaurant where anyone can escape for just an hour or an entire afternoon.
Non-residents are welcome to take advantage of a host of outstanding amenities, including lunch or tea at The Deck Restaurant, a round on the nine-hole golf course and pampering at The Stables Spa- all featuring the stellar service for which the Isle of Eriska team is renowned, as well as excellent value.
Eriska is under new ownership, and family owned Creation Gem of Hong Kong is committed to preserving the Buchanan-Smith family legacy that has made Eriska an icon of hospitality for over four decades.
The Deck Restaurant combines breezy, contemporary design, first class fare and breath-taking views. The menu is Scottish and moreish, with favourites such as house smoked salmon, rib eye of aged scotch beef and beer battered West Coast haddock and chips, alongside specials that change daily, with local beers and beverages to match. Head Chef Paul Leonard brings to The Deck his ethos of fresh, locally sourced produce that has made the Michelin star restaurant in the hotel so renowned, showcasing the best of the west coast larder, some of which comes from as close as the hotel’s own gardens. Afternoon tea in The Deck is a special treat, featuring a selection of hand made cakes, scones, sandwiches and teas.
For those looking to unwind, treat themselves to first class indulgences or get a routine beauty treatment, The Stables Spa provides a sophisticated and relaxing retreat, where emphasis is very much on recovering the well being of the mind, body and soul. For those who don’t like to fight the crowds, The Stables is the perfect place to enjoy a tranquil, relaxed atmosphere.
Highlighted as an Editor’s Choice in the Good Hotel Guide 2017, The Stables Spa offers a mosaic of services one might expect from a big city facility, but without the intimidation or rush. Guests can choose from a full range of massages, body or facial treatments, holistic therapies and a Rasul mud chamber that seats four.
And when the weather is nice, the nine-hole Eriska Links golf course provides a scenic and relaxing game for any level of player. Visitors are welcome to make a day of it, and combine a beauty treatment with afternoon tea or lunch, and all the nature that the 300-acre island has to offer, from a walk on the beach to a hike on the trails or a round of golf.
Whether you are looking to celebrate a special occasion with friends, enjoy a casual afternoon meal or need a regular beauty treatment, the Isle of Eriska provides a warm welcome. Pre-booking is essential and discounts are available for local residents.
