The hotel is in a fantastic position, overlooking the loch, it's a shame the interior didn't meet up to standards! The rooms are small and dingy, the corridors need some decorating. We booked this as it was supposed to be dog friendly, which is was but only by two of the staff! The young lady that checked us in and... More

My route into town approached the hotel from the rear. I prayed that this wasn't the Argyll, but it was!. The reception, bar and dining room are all in good shape. From the first stair things go downhill. This place is very tired and shabby. I don't care how busy staff are there is no excuse for dirty laundry on... More

I really hate writing negative reviews, but this place just doesn't deserve better than a 2 out of 5. The whole experience in a word: shabby. The reception, meaning how we were received, the manner of our reception was just so unwelcoming. There was clearly some confusion with the two rooms we booked, but we just sat there in silence...

We are just back from this hotel, we stayed 2 nights DBB, first impression from outside was disappointing as it looked rather drab. We arrived an hour early and asked if we could check in.Vanetta who was on reception was very unhelpful and unwelcoming and really should not be greeting guests as her manner is terrible! There was a mix... More

The hotel from the outside looks a bit dated, could do with a coat of paint. Inside the reception area very pleasant and the welcome was very friendly. Our room, a bit dated and small but clean and a comfy bed, the bathroom was clean with a fairly good shower. The bar and lounge area was nice with a good... More

4th or 5th time we've stayed here over 10 years to break a journey for the night. Very helpful friendly staff, good bar meals, nicely kept beer, car parking and views. No soundproofing in floors Most uncomfortable bed ever and needed decorating 10 years ago. Still not done. Shame. Could easily make this place great Wifi available but very intermittent,... More

Dingy, dirty, smoky, outdated hotel that's well worth avoiding. Also, the management leaves much to be desired. We booked a room online and paid £80 in advance on our credit card. When we arrived to check in (at 3 pm), we were informed that the room had "water damage" and so was unavailable. We asked to see the room to... More

The hotel was very nice though old. The room was very cozy with not much room for 2 people and luggage but was comfortable and overlooked Loch Fyne. The reception staff was kind and helpful. We chose not to eat supper there but found the included breakfast to be very good and filling. We even were able to taste a... More

We spent one night in this hotel. The only problem we found were the lots of stairs even in corridors however it was nothing when compared to rates of other hotels in the area. The room was clean and tidy, bed very comfortable. Hotel is situated on the promenade and could easily go for a walk in the evening and... More

Arrived early afternoon and reception was very helpful. Our rooms were on the first floor up a turret stair. No Lift so be prepared to be exhausted if you have more floors to negotiate. Room was a little tired and the toilet had a mira electric shower that was very weak.The light above my bed did not work. The bar... More
