Nice hotel right in the centre of town. Good price and the staff where very pleasant and helpful. Food was excellent. My only disappointment was when I asked for the wine list and was told we only do red or white, fine what type, red or white. The choice was little one class bottles. I would stay again.

This hotel is very dated and tatty looking! We had room 5 and although I could not fault the cleanliness in the room I did feel the shower could do with an extra scrub! The bedroom had 2 large bedside cabinets that are too big and close to the bed, my partner and I kept knocking ourselves on them as... More

I was touring the Kintyre peninsula and the Argyll Arms hotel was a good location on the route. I was soaking wet when I arrived, but was made to feel welcome, and encouraged to bring my bike inside for security. The room was fine, although the view looked out over a roof and a tatty-looking building opposite. I would have... More

Stayed three nights while on business in Campbeltown. Mistake. My room on the second floor was reached via dark and dingy corridors and stairways with worn and stained carpets. The room was dark and freezing cold and looked on to a derelict building with boarded up windows just a few feet away. Later that night I discovered the window was... More

I stayed at the hotel for one night on business and I would agree with other contributors. My room was clean and I had a comfortable night's sleep. I am afraid that try as I might I couldn't get much hot water the next morning. I ate in the restaurant and had a reasonable meal. The whitebait starter was very... More

I think grand old lady is the best way to describe the Argyle. In the past I has obviously been grand but is now showing its age. Don't let this put you off. We stayed here two nights while walking the Kintyre Way. The staff are very friendly, the rooms were large, comfortable with plenty of hot water and the... More

Stayed here for work overnight and read the reviews prior to arrival. Food was good and the staff eerr friendly. The decor is dated and the hotel would benefit from a makeover. The wifi signal is very poor and I needed to sit in reception to get any work done. Nice stay overall
