Maurice was the perfect host
"Went to Carradales for a Birthday meal. This newly renovated Luxury Guest House is truly stunning with cosy open fires and a lovely calming atmosphere. The menu had a great choice and the food was delicious. Steve is obviously a very passionate chef and Maurice was the perfect host. Would highly recommend Carradales and will definitely return."

Treated with Style and Cheery Professionalism
"We enjoyed the most wonderful evening with Steve and Maurice last week! We were welcomed as friends and treated with style and cheery professionalism. Our starters were delightful, with the mushrooms plump and juicy and the smoked salmon and prawns succulent and tasty. The mains of coconut chicken breast accompanied by vegetable rice and salmon fillet with a crayfish sauce were equally amazing. The sauces offered delicate sophistication evidencing a very talented chef. Dessert of chocolate Bakewell tart was simply stunning and completed the best meal we have eaten in Kintyre in recent years. Thank you, gentlemen - we will certainly return!"

An Exciting New Beginning
"Thanks for a fabulous meal in Carradales tonight and showing us around the old Manse to let us reminisce about our early childhood. You have done a wonderful job in totally refurbishing the house and giving it an exciting new beginning. Wishing you every success with your very promising and exciting new venture."

Exquisite Evening Meal
"First visit to the newly opened Carradales for dinner and it most certainly won't be our last. Steve and Maurice are the perfect hosts and made us feel totally at home. Maurice's experience in hospitality and Steve's CV as a chef shone through in everything they delivered. The seafood starter of smoked salmon and prawns was a delight and the mushrooms on ciabatta really tasty. The mains of slow cooked beef and salmon hit the mark perfectly, leaving just enough room to squeeze in a dessert, the highlight of which had to be the chocolate Bakewell tart - moist with a lovely balance between the sweet smooth chocolate sauce and the lemon curd lining the pastry. Great value and a wonderful experience."
A Charming, Relaxing and Refined Dining Experience
"Beautiful setting. Welcoming professional and polite hosts. A charming, relaxing and refined dining experience. Food, choices, dietary requirements and presentation was well received and enjoyed. We’re regular visitors to Carradale and we’ll definitely be a regular at the Carradales. Thank you."
The Guest House is Fantastic
"A brilliant place to have meal Heather and I had a special evening the Guest House is fantastic the food is outstanding and the hosts Steve & Maurice are two of the most lovely people you would want to meet xx"
Luxuriously Equipped Rooms
"We had a wonderful meal including: local beef cooked in red wine, baked salmon with crayfish sauce, local smoked salmon, orange and ginger cheesecake, rose wine and berry terrine. This was served in the lovely, intimate dining room. Staying with family we did not use the hotel facilities but we were invited to look at the luxuriously equipped rooms. The guest house has been decorated in period with chandeliers and interesting antique pieces, with wood burning stoves and central heating, so without the period drafts! The whole experience was enhanced by the charming hosts, Steve and Maurice."
"We stayed in this beautiful guest house for two nights. The rooms are all different, and named after local castles.This is a very high end guest house, no expense has been spared, which made our stay very relaxing. Steve who is a professional chef cooked us a fantastic evening meal the smoked salmon with prawns and the chicken with a pineapple salsa were a delight. Maurice who is front of house does a great job at making you feel relaxed, and that nothing is to much trouble. There is lots of choice for breakfast, I went for the Scottish breakfast all locally sourced and made by Steve. Give this place ago you will not be disappointed."
Luxuriously , Comfortable and Cosy
"A truly luxurious high end Bed and breakfast Sumptuously no expense spared furnished very tastefully in a combination of modern contemporary and traditional very in keeping with this beautiful historic manse . Not a hotel but the rooms far exceed luxury levels than many five star hotels The beds are large and extremely comfortable , the ensuite is of a very high standard with an excellent shower and a large selection of toiletries supplied Not a restaurant but the food far exceeds many Michelin starred restaurants All this combined with a very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere Make Carradales one of the finest places to stay in Scotland The hosts although relatively new to the area have an enormous knowledge of the whole Kintyre peninsula, and can give excellent local knowledge They are also extremely hospitable and have a very much can't do enough to help you ethos . The professional chef Steve , is keen to point out the locally sourced produce on offer . And explain the excellent and varied menu even passing on some very useful cooking tips . Both Maurice and Steve go all out to make your stay as comfortable as possible Cannot reccomend Carradales enough and eagerly await our return."
Homely & Welcoming
