Had a great stay here with my husband and baby boy, staff are very friendly and helpful, our toilet was blocked and manager got it fixed straight away. Room was clean and views of loch are beautiful. Food great value.

What can I say about this very special hotel, I rang at 23.00 at night and Sam talked me through the whole booking process to save me money. We were staying here to visit our son who is based at faselane which is 10 mins away. The staff are so fantastic and friendly they made us feel like we were... More

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.

It's clean, friendly, (very friendly infact) we travel almost 40 miles round trip, by bus & train, if having a drink, by car if not having a drink. I've never seen or heard the people your talking about. Are you sure you were... More
