What a lovely place. Even though the weather was awful most of the time while we were there the staff (especially Sarah) couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our stay.. The food and especially the fine wines and whisky sat by the cosy fire in the lounge we tried while we were there were excellent! The hotel is in... More

We went to Melfort on the spur of the moment, booked 2 days prior. We were pleasantly surprised to find a truly lovely hotel in a very pleasant setting. The views from every room were of Melfort Loch and out towards Islay. The highlight of our weekend was the food! A really great choice of good food, beautifully cooked and... More

We found this wonderful hotel quite by chance. We had planned a short trip to Argyll and it popped up on a voucher site. We liked the location so booked - and what a delight! From the stunning setting to the excellent service, the fantastic food to the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, this hotel exceeded all expectations. Our first visit... More

My wife and I have booked in to the Loch Melfort Hotel for Valentines weekend. As my wife has various dietary limitations, I have contacted the hotel to highlight the problems. No problem for the hotel...they are doing their utmost to cater in advance for all her dietary needs. So reassuring that they do care and try to assist. We... More

We visited at Loch Melfort again at the end of October, and I have pondered a while before posting this review, largely because I have always felt able to recommend the hotel and restaurant on the experience of past visits. Sadly on this occasion, I felt that our visit was not up to the usual high standards. We opted for... More

This is an extremely friendly hotel in a stunning setting. We stayed for the 3-night New Year package, which included good food, music and dancing to see in the new year, and a lounge and bar area for relaxing in the evening. The hotel is right next to the sea and is adjacent to the Arduaine Scottish National Trust gardens.... More

I've uploaded a couple of photos which show you the ideal setting of this hotel. You views are stunning and I understand that every room in the hotel looks over the loch. It is an old building which has clearly been added to a few times over the years. The inside is old fashioned and full of character. I wouldn't... More

We recently visited this hotel for Gourmet evening and stayed additional nights, we stayed in Cedae lodges which have fantastic views of loch and surrounds. Room was average with bed and pillows not v comfortable. Furniture largely old. Shower no pressure and of little use. Food was good albeit it did not live up to expectations.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review although it is very disappointing that having engaged with us personally throughout Gourmet Night you did not feel that you could share your comments with us directly rather than through Tripadvisor.

I am lost for words. This hotel must have the most awesome setting in the UK. We were blessed with an amazing sunset and a glorious sunrise. The room was spacious, though a little tired, but the view made up for it. The staff were tops and the food 1st class. Our first visit was 38 years ago when I... More
