I almost feel a fraud for putting in a review without actually going in but I couldn't email the hotel directly as it was the old website. Hence the reason I've put average for ratings. Please read this review bearing this in mind. I have a soft spot for the Victoria for a number of reasons but it is in... More

This hotel has changed hands again and is now under new management that also own a hotel in Lochgilphead. Its early days but it was evident that the changeover needs some further professional input, the bar was good but there was a serious shortage of quality wines , no wine list available and when asked for a wine cooler for...

My husband and I enjoyed a one night stay here and were made very welcome. Tarbert is a great little fishing village with lots of character and the Victoria Hotel was a great choice for our overnight stay. We arrived in the afternoon and enjoyed a wander along the quayside and a drink in one of the harbour side bars.... More

We spent a lovely 3 nights at this comfortable hotel in Tarbert. Pascal the charming french chef and his wife Jacquie ensured we had a lovely breakfast cooked to order each day, and the food in the restaurant was first class. Popular with the yachting community, this hotel is in the process of upgrading, and our room had a power... More

Had a great stay, warm welcome, the rooms have greatly improved since Pascal took over. Food was great as usual. Every thing is cooked to order so takes a little longer to arrive. We had front room overlooking harbour.

We are staying near Lochgilphead for the week while my husband is working down here. We arrived on the Sunday and travelled into Tarbert looking for somewhere to have dinner on the Sunday evening. Passing the Victoria on the way in looked lovely but thinking we shouldn't stop at the first place we see so carried on and tried two... More

Hello all Just popped into the Victoria hotel and was given good real coffee and toast with free high speed WIFI connection. Excellent service and hospitality. Very hard to find good wifi connection in this area so this find was a real bonus Liz

Check in is at the bar. You immediately get a comfortable, perhaps a little basic but friendly feel. Our stay in fact exceeded that. Our room overlooked the harbour and was very comfortable. The bed/linen was of a very good standard - a great sleep. The best part of our stay was the food. Food quality was extremely high. Some... More
