The prestigious Good Hotel Guide has just launched their 2020 edition alongside this year’s Cesar Award-winning hotels – widely regarded as the Oscars of the hotel industry.

To celebrate, we take a look at five award-winning hotels in Scotland, from this year’s Cesar Award winner to those of years gone by…

The Airds Hotel, Port Appin

This year, The Airds Hotel won a Cesar Awards for its quintessentially romantic escapism and exceptional standards, although in years gone by it has also been highly commended by the Guide’s independent reviewers.

Sitting next to Loch Linnhe, with views to the Morvern mountains, this former 18th-century ferry inn is today a chic gourmet destination.

Rooms are equipped with Bulgari toiletries, robes, slippers and whisky mac, and the family-friendly escape also offers delightful touches such as a high tea for under-eights.


Kinloch Lodge, Isle of Skye

The magical location of Lord and Lady Macdonald’s former hunting lodge on the shores of Loch Na Dal is just the start of what makes it so special.

The 2019 Cesar Award Winner is designed to fit in with the environment. Tranquil and historic, everything is done beautifully, especially the food.

Under Roux-trained Marcello Tully’s creative, locally sourced dishes are an ode to Scottish ingredients.


Knockendarroch Hotel, Pitlochry

In magnificent surroundings which have made it a prize destination for walkers and a 2020 Editor’s choice destination, Knockendarroch Hotel won a Cesar Award in 2019 for its immaculate presentation and attention to detail.

A luxurious hotel, it honours Scotland with details such as Scottish Fine Soaps toiletries and a lounge with a whisky cabinet.

Meanwhile, fires burn and views are impeccable.


Burrastow House, Walls

An 18th century escape overlooking the Sound of Vaila, Burrastow House sits on Shetland’s remote west coast.

A home away from home, but with superb food, the hotel offers a warm welcome to guests who travel from afar.

It’s unpretentious and naturally beautiful, as you enjoy the tranquillity of the remote location, watch the world go by as otters dive for fish and cavort on shore.


The Cross at Kingussie, Kingussie

A charming restaurant with rooms in a converted tweed mill, The Cross at Kingussie never fails to delight Guide readers.

Rooms are equipped with fresh coffee, biscuits and Arran Aromatics toiletries.

Wake to the soothing sound of mountain water rattling over stones and enjoy thoughtful details such as canapés with your pre-dinner drinks.
