THE 2019 Good Hotel Guide launched this autumn featuring a record breaking 860 hotels including nine new additions to the Scottish collection.
From elegant B&Bs to luxury country houses, this bastion of independent reviews shares the new hotels in Scotland to feature in the 2019 Good Hotel Guide…
Jura Hotel, Craighouse
Amidst the wild beauty of the most untouched of the Scottish islands, Jura Hotel is a family-owned pub with rooms that offers superb food.
Natural beauty is what makes the island of Jura so spectacular – where there are more red deer than human beings and George Orwell fell in love with the mountains.
Dine on locally caught langoustine and take in there views from this remote paradise.
Kinloch Lodge, Sleat
Situated on the Isle of Skye, Kinloch Lodge is known for its superb food as well as its spectacular location.
As one of the winners of this year’s prestigious Good Hotel Guide Cesar awards, Lord and Lady Macdonald’s historic former hunting lodge offers guests warmth and comfort as well as historic intrigue.
Tuck up by the log fire, take in the views of the neighbouring mountain, and peruse a framed letter from Queen Victoria on the walls.
The Old Priory Bed and Breakfast, Kelso
A traditional B&B on the Scottish Borders, The Old Priory Bed and Breakfast is all about life’s great comforts.
The property dates back to the late 18th century and is a sensual experience from the super pots of tea to the silk-filled duvets and lots of fresh flowers.
A family enterprise, Guide readers particularly praised the hearty breakfasts – worth tucking into before a good day of walking.
Marmalade Hotel, Portree
A Georgian style country house that has had a sleek contemporary makeover inside, Marmalade Hotel balances historic style with contemporary hospitality.
Rooms look out onto the hotel’s landscaped gardens, the harbour town of Portree and the Cuillin hills beyond, and throughout you will find little touches that are intrinsically Scottish, from the natural fabrics crafted on the Isle of Skye to the whisky infused porridge at breakfast.
The Dunstane Houses, Edinburgh
A Victorian villa close to Edinburgh city centre, The Dunstane Houses is richly decorated inside with tweedy fabrics and sumptuous velvet chairs and sofas.
There is a real sense of luxury in everything you do, from a simple cup of tea complete with home made shortbread to dinner which offers contemporary Scottish dishes including hand-dived scallops, for example.
The Ship Inn, Elie
A chic restaurant with rooms, The Ship Inn is all warming fires and hearty pub favourites overlooking the water in this historic village.
Bedrooms have a coastal theme to them, complete with a set of binoculars so you can watch the ships sailing by, and there is a real sense of community that welcomes you, whether it’s chattering at the bar or watching the pub’s cricket team play on the sand at low tide.
Galson Farm Guest House, South Galson
Surrounded by wildlife on the Northwest coast of Lewis, Galson Farm Guest House is an 18th century farmhouse where cattle still roam the beach.
Known for its sense of style and superb fresh food, they pride themselves on their local produce and selection of after dinner drinks, all of which is much welcomed after a day exploring the beaches and mountains.
