We usually stay in one of the downstairs rooms as my husband has mobility problems, either one is very comfortable and quiet; the family room has wet room facilities suitable for disabled guests. The bar/restaurant is always busy, not surprisingly because the food is excellent. Staff are friendly, helpful, and patient! Breakfast is freshly cooked to order. Love the Arch!

We stayed here overnight whilst heading south from Orkney. I have really mixed feelings about The Arch Inn - some things were really excellent, whilst others were below standard. The location is brilliant. It is located on the side of the loch, with magnificent views. The have a small parking area at the front, but there is free packing close... More

Very small room upstairs. No lift. Only a little parking on the street in front off the inn which faces the water. Lovely view. Bit noisy as people leave the bar. Good restaurant attached to a busy downstairs bar. The room has an en suite, but, as is common in the UK, the shower is in a very narrow bath... More

This was my 4th time staying at The Arch Inn and as always the staff where very friendly and helpful, the food was superb and the room was very nice and very clean. My only criticism is that the TV in the room was very small but apart from that I can't fault it.

Really pleasant and helpful staff, Our double room was spotless and comfortable, lovely sound nights sleep. You can walk out of the... More

Just about average room really. Nothing special. Quite minimalist and cheap feeling for 100 quid. Alright so does the job. Booked on the day as well so maybe that's why paid so much. Basically nothing special at all and typical pub really. Would recommend. Clean and typical. Would go elsewhere though just because this place has no character and feels... More

Called in without pre-booking and bar/reception staff were lovely and very helpful. Two couples travelling on motorbike tour. The rooms were well presented, modern and spotless. Food in their restaurant could not be better. We all had different dishes and they were all delicious. Would go back without a doubt.
