Ian, Nick and their small team welcome you to the Argyll Hotel in Bellochantuy near Campbeltown in Kintyre. Our aim is to offer you a relaxed home from home experience – and that incudes your dog too (there is no extra charge for your favourite family member!). We are a traditional West Coast Hotel that has benefited from a refurbishment of its Select double / Twin rooms to bring you modern comfort and facilities but still with the time-honoured welcome you would expect from a traditional west coast hotel. The building’s history is one of always trading as a hotel with its original parts dating back to around the 1870s - this is where our smaller but cosy and comfortable Standard Double rooms are located. These too have benefited from a refresh over the winter (with further work due toward the end of 2019).
With our true beachside location – the arcing Bellochantuy Bay with its white sands stretching for 2 miles is little more than few steps off the hotel’s beachside terrace. Both the beach and hotel offer unrivalled views across the ocean to the islands of Islay, Jura and Gigha. You can relax on the terrace sipping whisky or gin from these iconic Hebredean Islands as you gaze across to them. You can also enjoy a range of gins and whiskeys from Kintyre too as well as the rest of Scotland from our well stocked bar.
Kintyre’s remoter, rural location is an ideal opportunity for you to step off the treadmill of life and to slow down and relax for a while; rebuild and refresh. Our Small hotel in a village of 14 houses is the ideal spot to slow down and immerse yourself in the beauty, charm and friendliness of Kintyre.
Kintyre boasts some of Scotland’s top golf courses, surfing at Westport Beach, the 96 mile long Kintyre way (for walkers and off-road cyclists) as well as many other walking and cycling opportunities. With Kintyre being the ‘birthplace of the Nation’, the home of the kingdom of Dalrianda, there is a wealth of ancient historical sites to explore. Ask us and we’ll point you in the right direction.
The Argyll Hotel has 8 bedrooms: 5 double ensuite, 2 twin ensuite and 1 single room with its own private bathroom. Both twin rooms have 1 double bed and 1 single bed so are also ideal as family room or triple bedroom. Additional single bed can be added to allow one of the rooms to accommodate a family of four. All rooms have television and tea & coffee making facilities. There is an iron and ironing board and hairdryers/ hair straighteners available in the hotel which are free to use. Special rates for families with children - please call for details on + 44 (0) 1583 421212
Our conservatory restaurant with the same stunning views (and magnificent sunsets – mother nature permitting) caters for a wide range of tastes with our chefs providing an eclectic dinner menu (with a separate, specific vegan menu available) and Ian’s breakfasts have won wide acclaim (including from the Lonely Planet guides).
