We stopped by here on our way to Oban from Kennacraig. Great view and pretty decent food. We had pizza and a caesar salad. Both freshly prepared and pretty good. We would stop again.

We took up a free mooring in Asknish Bay and an early dinner at the Chartroom 11 Bistro. We now know not to take our dinghy to the little sandy beach again, it means a longer walk along a busy main road to get to the Loch Melfort Hotel and our dinner.

Enjoyed excellent lunch today (18 June) in the Chart Room. Highly recommend before exploring the neighbouring Arduaine Gardens. Afterwards return for cup of tea outside taking in the beautiful views. Next time we will stay for a night or two.

There is no denying the breathtaking views and beautiful gardens surrounding this place however the horrible food and customer service was beyond disappointing. We started with a garlic pizza to share that was clearly purchased from their local supermarkets frozen food isle and unfortunately lacked any sort of flavour. Our mains were equally disappointing, my father ordered a meat pizza... More

We ate in the Chartroom bistro. This room is fitted out in a modern style with breathtaking views through panoramic windows. The room is bright and cheerful and the staff pleasant and efficient. The food whilst not outstanding was good.

We only ate in the Chartrom Bistro at lunch - it has a varied menu and the high standards we have come to expect at Loch Melfort Hotel. They also have an evening menu.
