We stayed at this hotel as we were attending a wedding. I don't feel that we got our moneys worth for the room. I have stayed in cheaper hotels that are much nicer, and was disappointed with what we got for what we paid. There was a lot of renovation work going on in the some of the rooms, maybe... More

Lovely location. Nice looking traditional building. Adequate room for the price and the Spa/Swimming pool is a great addition. However me and my partner decided to eat in the hotel's restaurant due it being on site and we were more than dissatisfied. We waited for 40 minutes or more for over priced food that was very average for the amount... More

The Balloch arms is a very busy place so book early. It has the old world Scottish charm I remember from my days living in Scotland as a boy... and it is a 5 minute walk from the oldest licensed pub in Scotland too. Buy the package that includes the Scottish Breakfast (much bigger than an English breakfast and first... More

A good save by the manager otherwise this would be a one star review. Hotel perfectly fine for the money - wifi signal strong but very slow. Rooms comfy and generally well decorated. Some work going on to tidy the place us but nothing that should inconvenience anyone. Our only bad experience was eating at the restaurant in the evening.... More

Lovely hotel with pool and spa. we arrived very late but staff were really helpful. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and comfortable with all facilities you would expect including a bath. Only stayed one night but wish it had been more.

We have stayed here often in the past its comfortable, and clean but we were disappointed in our room it was roomy enough for a family room but badly needed decorated. Very tired with peeling paint. Food good and excellent spa and pool. A bit of TLC wouldn't go amiss. This was our second stop in our west highland way... More

We stayed for a night to have a look at Loch Lomond. Wasn't the nicest room although for 90 pounds you cant expect too much. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and nice staff. It is a good option for a quick stop-over if your going somewhere but not if your looking for somewhere fancy.

We stayed in this hotel 2 nights for a local wedding. We selected the hotel as the pictures on the site looked good and it was a Best Western, entitling my partner to a room upgrade, due to status with Best Western. Our alleged upgraded room was shabby and looked out on road barriers, which had garbage standing next to... More

Interior of the hotel is second rate throughout. Wallpaper was peeling off the walls in our room and a pervading smell of damp everywhere. Floor boards creak, doors squeak, windows rattle. Everything feels like it's just about to give up the ghost. While staff are friendly they are also slightly useless and unresponsive. Wifi is listed as "high speed", but... More

Dear Guest I thank you for your comments, as stated in the management comments to your fellow occupant of your room I tried to explain the issue we experience with the supply side of the broadband speed to the area. The refurbishment of the main corridors is its final stage and I look forward to the completion. Yours sincerely Volker... More

Hotel is shabby, with peeling wallpaper, dirty carpets and freezing tiny rooms. overpriced. Although the staff where all very nice. we had to be moved rooms but picked the best of a bad bunch, very disappointing stay for my friends wedding.
