Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Island in Benderloch, Scotland

Located off the west coast of Scotland is a private 300-acre retreat called Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Golf. Built as a home in 1884 in the Scottish Barional style, this singular hotel on the island houses just 50 guests and is steeped in history. While the building has had a succession of owners and enhancements over the course of its lifetime, it has changed very little with age. The rooms are capsules of luxury adorned with tasteful appointments and regal bursts of color. In the main house, a former billiard room and courtyard have transitioned into a pair of spacious bedrooms, while the addition of a conservatory has enhanced the overall ambiance. A nearby annex is surrounded by lush foliage and features spa suites as well as two-bedroom cottage suites offering some serious seclusion with private gardens and bubbling hot tubs.

The public spaces at Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Golf are extraordinary, creating a welcoming environment with roaring fireplaces, plush sofas and chairs, and exquisite objets d'art. A traditional library reflects Art Deco charm and showcases a wonderful display of whiskeys, spirits and wines, which are available to guests throughout the day. There is also a spectacular restaurant featuring a fantastic wine list. Recreation varies to include horseback riding and golf, plus refreshing dips in the indoor swimming pool, sublime personal spa treatments, and a fantastic multi-purpose sports hall. There are traditional activities, including clay pigeon shooting and croquet as well. The island lends itself to leisurely strolls through the natural terrain. An escape at Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Golf will surely have you wanting to linger a bit longer before returning to the mainland.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Eriska is a Victorian building of great character in a wonderful setting on its own Island. Our room on the first floor was very large and comfortable and deserving of its Deluxe designation. The leisure facilities are excellent in particular the large swimming pool. Service was very attentive and the staff were all lovely and there were very many of them. Dinner was exquisite but .... oh, what small portions. On the first night we didn't clock the small print on the menu saying "potatoes and vegetables will be served on request" and left the table hungry, though the spectacular and generous cheese trolley mitigated this somewhat. By the second night, when the starter of scallops arrived and proved to be ... half a scallop... our British reserve collapsed and we spoke up. The restaurant manager to his credit was suitably embarrassed and apologetic and made us a generous offer in reparation. Eriska has recently changed ownership, management and decor. We came here first ten years ago for our tenth wedding anniversary and this trip was a return visit in part for our twentieth. The last time we felt like guests in someone's private home; this time we felt like customers of a large hotel chain, which was in effect what we were. I appreciate that this is a subjective comment. If you have never been to Eriska before, and appreciate delicious but very small morsels of food served in unusual ways (on a bed of pebbles for example) you will love Eriska. And, to finish on a high note, I'll just say again - the staff were absolutely lovely.

The Hotels staff and the food take this escape to your own Scottish Isle onto a different level. Be ready to relax with complete peace and quiet, in front of the real fires, which keep the welcome warm day & night.

My mum, step-dad, partner and I came for dinner at Eriska in July this year, and had a wonderful meal. My partner and I both work in the hospitality industry and often notice small errors in service, but we genuinely noticed nothing, service was excellent. We had a seven-course tasting menu with an additional cheese course (we were definitely the last table standing by the time the cheese trolley rolled round) and the food was all impeccable. My only complaint would be the decor is a little tired and could do with an upgrade. I believe there are new owners so hopefully they will take this on board.

My wife and I spent a couple of nights in October for a special bithday. Must say it was luxury, with excellent staff. Nice lovely walks throughout the small island. Dining was a great experience, cheese trolley, never seen anything like it.

My husband and I stayed here with another couple for three nights at beginning of October. We booked de-luxe double ooms but ours was certainly not de-luxe. The first room was high up, had no view and was too modern and minimal. We didn’t believe it was a de- luxe so very offered another which was nicer but up yet another staircase. It was considerably better than the first offer, I think it was Tanera.? or similar. Our friends had a suite much nicer than ours although paying the same high price. Problem with theirs was a damp stale smell which met them on room entry. So to summarise , the accommodation was not up to the standard we expected. We didn’t realise the hotel had changed hands a year previously and possibly again recently. There was no Michelin starred chef. The food was reasonably good but the pretentious serving was a bit over the top. By the time we ate we had lost our appetite listening to the descriptions of our meals which went on too long. The cheese trolley was great but again the girl talked us through the trolley four times! The hotel itself does not bear any resemblance to the country house style shown in books available for reading in the lounges. The beautiful wood panelling has been painted over in a gunmetal grey and the decor needs a professional make-over throughout to make it worthy of it’s five star rating. I suppose if you come from outside the UK you may think this Hotel has the ‘wow’ factor but in my opinion ( and those of the rest of our group) it is trading on past merits and does not deserve its present ratings. The staff were good.
