We have just returned from a few days break in this wonderful hotel. The staff were so helpful and courteous, The restaurant is amazing with wonderful views over the sea. The food is outstanding with an excellent selection of local fayre. All in all it was a lovely experience and well worth a visit. We will definitely be back.

Loch Melfort Hotel hosted our wedding and we could not fault it. The sun even came out for the day. The staff were great and we'd like to thank them for making sure everything was great on the day and throughout our stay.

The hotel location is marvelous, right on the loch, so we were expecting a wonderful experience but , on the whole, left a bit disappointed. On the positive side, as previously said, the location is magnificent; the staff is pleasant and eager to satisfy requests. For example, we arrived on a cold , wet day to be offered fresh milk...

Stayed here 1 night at the end of September 2014. The staff were all so helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived and they showed us to the room, and through the whole stay.

Having been recommended to us based on the views, this did not disappoint. Absolutely amazing vistas from our room, the dining area, sitting room ... the lake, mountains and grazing cows: nature at its best. Service in the dining room was friendly and warm. Our bedroom?

We stayed for two nights at the hotel, having won a short break in a competition. On arrival, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, actually showing us to our room, not just pointing in the direction. The room itself was in the Cedar Wing, which as mentioned in previous reviews, is in need of some modernisation. However, it was... More
