We stayed at this hotel in May 2015 and unfortunately we don't have an awful lot of positives to share. The positives that there were include the lady on reception was friendly and helpful when we were welcomed into the hotel; the room was an okay size and there was a nice view. Beyond that we didn't really have a... More

What a great wee hotel. Bridget, Jan and the rest of the team deliver excellent service and hospitality. Food is good value, quick and tasty. To be honest the place could be doing with a refurbishment but you can't blame the team for that as it is spotless. Would have been 5 except for the decor.

I stayed here for two night when on business in the area. The hotel is clean tidy and well organised. The room was clean and spacious. My complains are quite minor. The toilet leaked slightly meaning it made a loud noise every or so. The hotel was a little dated in places but the room had been re decorated recently.... More

The Ardencaple hotel's bar and restaurant used to be my 'local'. Visiting it again, after a number of years, I found it just as friendly and welcoming as it always was. Bar has been refurbished but menu is the great value it always was. It continues to provide ideal meals in size and quality for seniors! I recommend anyone visiting... More

Superb service over the Christmas break. Rooms are a decent size, quiet and warm but dated. Food is standard low end pub fare, not great but honest and does the job. Service sets this hotel apart however, very friendly and accommodating, thanks very much folks.
