Lovely hotel over looking the loch. 15 minutes walk to town and shops. Very friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Room was suitable and pleasant, but not amazing. Hotel has its own bar and restaurant which had nice atmosphere and very reasonably priced food and drink. Stayed here for a wedding at Loch Lomond which was a 15min / £20 taxi... More

The staff at the hotel are brilliant especially Bridgit and Jan, nothing is too much trouble and they are always happy and smiling. The beds are comfortable and clean, the hotel itself is clean and quiet even though it is always busy. The food is great and not overpriced, the breakfast choice was good and hot food was very quickly... More

Staff were very welcoming and helpful but the hotel is in need of a full refurbishment. All a bit run down. Could do better with the breakfast (undercooked eggs, tasteless beans, etc.). A pity as the view from the front beer garden is good.

The staff is great but the room was in very poor condition. Clean but peeling and stained wall paper on the ceiling, marginally comfortable bed. Bathroom was updated and clean but shower is tiny. There is no reason these basic issues should not be addressed. Not worth the money.

The Hotel is well situated in between Helensburgh & Rhu, it looks tired from the outside. Inside the staff are wonderful, rooms are clean and comfortable, more light would be a benefit. Food is good. The only problem was a disco on Saturday night right under my room, enough said. I would certainly return if in the area.

On arrival it was just as well we didn't have any kids with us - as we approached the reception the hotel manager started swearing and shouting and then ran off outside while we were left standing there! Not a very good first impression and not very pleasant to be greeted in such a way! She returned several minutes later... More

Very helpful and friendly staff on my arrival. I stayed in Room 208 for one night and it was nice and clean. There was a few things I noticed - the old fashioned windows let a lot of noise in from the passing traffic; it also looked like they have had problems with part of the ceiling with once must...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ardencaple. Good sized room, cleaned & serviced daily. Very friendly, helpful staff. Good quality food at value pricing. Would recommend without hesitation will return if ever in the area again.

Room overlooking fan from kitchen so very noisy and the smell of the kitchen greets you as you climb the stairs, avoid room 213 like the plague. Wallpaper coming off the ceiling in the bedroom and I the en suite. so first impressions are not good at all, not good at all. Booked a twin and room was made up... More
