Fantastic lodge with beautiful views
5/5 Stars Upfront Review - September 2023
We had a family break here for 3 nights and it was perfect from start to end. The lodge was well equipped, immaculate and so comfortable. We have been going to Hunters Quay for over 20 years now and have stayed in various lodges, all great but this beats them all. The view just topped it for us, just beautiful.
We will most definitely be returning time and time again.
Beautiful Stay
5/5 Stars Upfront Review - July 2023
Absolutely loved our stay here. Could not fault it any way. Lodge was spotless and very comfortable and was well equipped with everything you needed.
Excellent location with lots of stunning scenery and walks on your doorstep. Beautiful views across Holy Loch with an array of wildlife giving us a visit.
Can’t wait for our next visit, well worth the long drive up from Cardiff

Short break at Dolphin Run

5/5 Star Upfront Reviews - June 2023

We had a fantastic few days at Dolphin Run lodge, It was easy to find and in a perfect location with stunning views out over the Loch. Inside and outside it was finished to a very high standard, with lots of interesting and homely touches that really made you feel comfortable and relaxed.
We would definitely return to this lodge as it offered everything we needed for a relaxing and peaceful break.


Fabulous, relaxing break in a special lodge.
5/5 Upfront Reviews - August 2022
Enjoyed our first, but hopefully not last, holiday at Dolphins Run.

Beautiful lodge, really well equipped, dog friendly and in a lovely spot in Hunters Quay holiday Village.

We were unsure what it would be like but the Village is beautifully kept with great facilities.

We'll definitely be back.


Idyllic getaway at Dolphin Run
5/5 Upfront Reviews - July 2022

I booked my holiday accommodation through Argyll self catering holidays and the booking process was very good as well as the communications regarding my booking.
The cabin's location is really nice and peaceful with enough privacy and close enough to the town of Dunoon.
The surrounding area is great with lots to do.
The cabin was very nice and comfortable with everything one needs and more as well as modern and spotless.
I loved the patio area which is very generous in size so you don't feel squashed and has a very nice view.
I would highly recommend Dolphin Run.


Well worth it

October break 2020 in Dolphin Run
We had a fabulous break in Dolphin Run. The chalet was well equipped, stylishly decorated and furnished, and immaculately presented. The sofas and beds were very comfortable. We were fortunate with the weather (bright, sunny and dry) and we enjoyed admiring the lovely view and autumn colours from the outside decking area. Despite the evening/ nights being cold we were very warm and cosy in the chalet. Dolphin Run provided us with a great base to explore the surrounding area. We felt reassured knowing that the chalet had been fogged prior to our arrival. We plan to revisit another time soon.
