I'm guessing its these ones he's referring to: Loche Linnhe Lodges, Kentallen, Argyll next to the Holly Tree Hotel and about 15 minutes north of Port Appin. I've stayed there (under previous owners) so PM me if you want feedback etc. Like everywhere it has pros and cons so it depends what you are looking for.

You could stay at Portavadie Marina, they have different types of accommodation and a bar!!!! If you are looking for accommodation in the area check this out Holidays Argyll - holiday homes in Tighnabruaich, Argyll, Scotland: self-catering, self catering accommodation, rental.
I could sort you out a mooring in Tighnabruaich/Kames.Though the Kames Hotel has loads and a great bar and food!!Its a brilliant part of the world for ribbing as you can nearly always find somewhere sheltered to launch.

We stayed here a couple of years ago. Very nice. The owner wasn't too keen on having the boat on-site due to size of boat/trailer and lack of turning area which was fair enough. At the bottom of the road is a boat yard that has a good slip which is available all states of the tide & a pontoon, this is into Loch Feochan which is a glorious spot & offers good shelter & easy launching. It's 15 minutes to Oban by boat, we used to take the boat round to Oban to do the shopping, I'd drop the missus off by the harbour, she'd nip into the shops & I'd pootle about in the bay
The boat yard charged us 35 for the week to leave the boat in their compound & use the slip as we needed, bargain!!. The cabins were spot on, clean, comfortable & well equipped. The only problem was the MIDGES But it was an exceptionally wet warm spring (we went at spring bank holiday) Apart from that, spot on.
