I've visited the bistro bar at the Loch Melfort hotel many times over the last 20 years, but have been very disappointed the last few times. I ordered a cream tea last time I visited, and a plate arrived with a scone floating in a pool of double cream - very strange. I gave them the benefit of the doubt... More

The Bistro Bar has fantastic views but the food and service is very poor / slow. We had to return the crab sandwiches as there was hardly any crab in them - they came back with a little more crab and bits of shell. Quite expensive but there is little competition so they can get away with it.

View fantastic. Food poor and expensive. Very small portions. Two burnt child size slices of garlic bread. Drinks expensive. Polite but inflexible and inexperienced staff. I assume due to winter closure new staff recruited every year.

Excellent bedroom accommodation. High quality restaurant food. Cheerful staff and good service. Location on west coast of Scotland is outstanding with Oban and Lochgilphead within easy driving distance. Scenic walking and sailing. Probably not suitable for very young children

We stayed here for one night with our dog on our way home having taken the pretty route from Inverness to the west coast via Fort William and Oban. We called in on the off chance and was greeted by friendly staff who arranged accommodation in one of the chalets attached to the hotel which really suited us with the... More

We recently stayed here for a long weekend with the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club, the service during the weekend both from reception staff and restaurant were excellent, as well as help given during the planning stages beforehand. In addition the location and views are exceptional and the food lived up to the high standards we had expected. An added bonus... More

Stayed for 4 nights in early April; lots of rain but the views over Loch Melfort are wonderful. Rooms have been renovated and are comfortable; ground floor ones have french windows to a tiny seating area looking out over the loch. It's not jet-set luxury (no gym, pool, business centre) but you don't need any of that stuff up here.... More

Just had a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Loch Melfort hotel for a couple of nights. The highlight of this hotel are the stunning views over the loch, all the main lounge area's and both restaurants have large panoramic windows. We stayed in the Cedar wing in and upstairs room with large patio windows and a balcony, once again... More

We spent three nights at the Loch Melfort Hotel with fifty members of our car club. There are a lot of plus points for the hotel - wonderful situation overlooking the Melfort Bay with Arduaine Gardens a hundred yards away; clean comfortable rooms with easy to regulate heating system; friendly staff; large car park, lounge and bar. It would have... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in April 2015. Chose the best weeks to go as the weather was beautiful which made the views Even more spectacular! Stayed in the cedar wing , lovely double bed with balcony leading directly onto a lovely grass patch right near some highland cows. You can walk right down to the sea edge. There is... More
