We booked through a very reasonable Groupon offer and had two rooms for 2-nights in the Cedar Wing that had great views, but fell short on a number of fronts:- 1/ The room smelt musty. 2/ The toilet had hairs on the floor and in one location where you certainly do not want to find hairs. 3/ Large cobweb (12”...

We spent a night here during a bank holiday weekend and have mixed feelings about it. The room was in the main building and was perfectly adequate. The bar area was a little shabby and lacked atmosphere and seemed to mostly be populated with an older crowd. The restaurant has one of the best views in Scotland. It's a shame... More

Many thanks for taking the time to write and review and sorry that on this occassion we did not meet your expectations or 'modernity'. We will investigate what happened to your coffee as the normal procedure is that you are asked after dinner if you would like coffee in the lounge and then the bar staff serve you. There are... More

Stayed one night as we were travelling to Oban the next day. We stayed in a standard room as the hotel was full. We had a lovely welcome when we arrived and were taken to our room which was good. The room was very clean and decorated in a contemporary way. The views were fantastic and we had a balcony... More

The chalet rooms are starting to look a little dated and tend to transmit sound from other guests, but are very spacious and comfortable, with huge patio doors overlooking an absolutely stunning view. Bathrooms have been updated and work well, peat tinted spring water may look odd but is good to drink. Bedside lights are too heavily shaded to allow... More

My journey continued from the lakes to the west coast of Scotland. It was an epic journey with just about every Loch and hillside that part of Scotland has to offer. I was pretty tired by the time I arrived. A friend had booked this hotel for me as I was uncertain where to stay. The "Cedar wing" is actually... More

We stayed at Loch Melfort Hotel for a family get-together in June.This hotel has truly spectacular views , looking towards Jura across the loch. The recently refurbished bedrooms were ideal, and the bed ( and pillows!) were supremely comfortable. The owner, Callum, is extremely hospitable and has obviously managed to put together a very personable and friendly staff. The National... More

The hotel design is a sort of American "motel" motif attached to the main building. Wifi is available in the main building only. Was explained when being shown around that hotel is a "sort of cellular dead zone" and that proved to be true, although the wifi connection in the Bistro was strong. This hotel touts itself as having the... More
