Overlooking Loch Feochan with panoramic views of rugged mountains and tranquil islands, Knipoch Hotel is just a short drive from Oban, the seafood capital of Scotland and a gateway to the Isles.
This historic 4 star hotel dates back hundreds of years, and retains original oak-panelled walls and open fires.

We have a passion for delivering great food at Knipoch.
Our Chef has created a delicious contemporary menu featuring the best of fresh local ingredients from Argyll’s and the Highlands natural larder.
We have a fine selection of wines, local malts and hand crafted gins, and our staff to guide you to the best choice, our cosy wood panelled bar is also a haven for relaxation at the end of the evening.
Every Saturday and Sunday we are also serving a new Weekend Roast from 12 noon to 9.00 pm.

    We had a lovely welcome from staff and were well looked after The seating area at the fire was very pleasing as was the dining room. Our food was good but felt the way the Kedgeree was served was strange, best described as a deconstructed Kedgeree Apart from that all was great although it was a bit pricey and because of that it won’t be a regular trip for us

    We spend our Valentine's Day in this hotel. The food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect. However, we heard our neighbour when we were in the room.

    We have been past the hotel many times over the years and never came in, the colour of the Hotel put us off, it has been repainted and looks great and the inside of the Hotel is fabulous, the dining room is stunning truly wonderful, we where greeted by Louise who is marvellous, the food and the ambience of this Hotel is second to none in the Oban area, we will be back, my wife and I loved it.

    We had dinner and breakfast and both were delicious with good choices Food and drinks are quite expensive but the lovely atmosphere pleasant surroundings and friendly staff are worth paying the price for. We would definitely consider returning if we travel to Oban

    We were welcomed at the door and shown to sofas in front of an open fire ( gas but very real). The menu was interesting with a good choice. The venison was voted excellent. The dining room was small which was nice as I had expected a much larger room. Again with an open fire. Service was excellent. I think it would be a fabulous venue to have a Christmas party.
