The staff tried their best but the food was mediocre at best and despite ample warning the kitchen couldn't cope with a party of 15. The waiting times were enormous. Tip from the chef in the party trim your menu down and stick to what you are good at. Steak pie and fish was fine. Cement Brûlée was ambrosia custard... More

Susan graciously accommodated us after a hotel further up the street refused to honor a confirmed reservation with Travelocity. I was travelling with my husband and six-year old son, so we needed two beds. Susan graciously fit a small bed into a room that was clearly only meant to fit the king bed already contained therein. She really helped us... More

What a great wee hotel! The owners were very helpful and had the most adorable son. A great breakfast and the room was grand. You are close to a beautiful river which I found very romantic. You are 5 miles away from Oban which could be a blessing or not depending on what you are after on your trip but... More

I stayed at the Loch Nell Arms in Room 4. I booked earlier in the year and was advised that it had new owners Rudi (Ruud) and Susan. I think they took over in April. There wasn't much of a change when I arrived but as I say my room was great value for money - very clean and my... More

My husband and I recently visited for an early evening meal. We had enjoyed a meal here when the current owners were just starting out. Once more we were warmly welcomed by our host to a quiet restaurant. He was very attentive, pleasant and had a good sense of humour. Soon the room began to get busy. He remained calm... More

I stayed at the hotel for a few days in May. The owners, Ruud and Susan, make you feel very welcome. They even thought about the kids by having a playroom for them. Meals are great with self made chips, loved it. I can really recommend the chocolate marquise as dessert. My room had a balcony with a beautiful view... More

I consider myself well travelled in the uk and abroad. In the interests of credibility I've hitchhiked across Europe spending £10 a day and on other occasions frequented 6 star hotels. Given the budget price bracket of the hotel. The Loch nell arms hotel is excellent value with superb, attentive, warm, generous and hardworking staff. If your looking for accommodation... More
