Absolutely stunning views from our room (5), with the setting the hotel should be fabulous but there appears to be a little bit of under investment. Various items need upgraded. There is is window in the restaurant and it is obviously the double unit has failed and it does detract from the view. Overall tho staff were very friendly if... More

Many thanks for taking the time for writing a review. You are absolutely correct to point out the failed window in the Restaurant but please don't think we have missed it. We have a whole series of new triple glazed windows going in which we ordered a few weeks ago and have been awaiting delivery from the firm in Oban.... More

We were disappointed ! We were allocated room 9. the room is very small and in need of a full makeover. Room 9 is sold as a superior room, it is definitely not superior in any way except perhaps in the context of the other rooms in the hotel. The rate of £114 per night for this room is excessive,...

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review and we are so sorry to hear that you found your stay disappointing. Room 9 was totally refurbished 2 years ago and had a brand new ensuite shower room fitted, sorry it was not to your taste. The rooms in the main house are individually designed and whilst smaller than... More

This hotel's location has to be one of the best on the Scottish coast. The views are glorious. The hotel and restaurant are excellent, the staff welcoming, friendly and professional. Rachel Ross (Proprietor) was especially helpful when I had an unexpected medical problem. The adjoining NT gardens are a beautiful bonus. We booked for one night and stayed for three!

I recently attended a small family reunion dinner at the Loch Melfort Hotel and I cannot rate it highly enough. The welcome as we arrived set the tome for a very happy evening. The staff gave us unobtrusive, friendly attention and the food was superb. I am just sorry that it is so far for me to come back from... More

It couldn't be a nice spot looking west towards a group of coastal island and there is a National Trust of Scotland garden in the grounds (for which you have to pay if you're not a member). The hotel is very comfortable and our room was light and spacious with a balcony on the side with the view. We had... More

With arguably the finest panoramic vista of any hotel on the West Coast of Scotland, the Loch Melfort Hotel is a very special location in Argyll which you will keep wanting to return to (as we have on numerous occasions over the last twenty years). It is a relatively short distance from Glasgow and the Central Belt, but in a... More

My husband booked us a night here a surprise anniversary gift on the Solstice and it was so memorable. Our room was stunning and the view over the Loch was incredible. We had a lovely meal in the fine dining restaurant with another stunning view and every member of staff was good humoured and charming. We were able to walk... More

OK accommodations about 20 minutes outside of Oban. Fantastic view of the sea from the rooms, which are spacious, but kind of blah in appearance. Beds ok. Restaurant ok. Nothing fantastic except the view. And the midges, tiny bugs, were awful in the early eve. Take a head covering insect net! Driving back and forth into Oban for dinner was... More
