“Not a cosy or well designed place but the food is awesome.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Looks as if the 1980s stood still for this place. Guess some might like that but we were not impressed. The bedside table was not by the bed owing to a short flex for the lamp- sounds trivial but for £90a night you expect the basics sorted out. Decor very basic ie not cosy. The bar/dining area has a good view, which mercifully detracts from the interior; said interior is harsh and bare and looks like ikea on a budget. BUT my god, the chef can cook!!! Go for the food, the man is a genius. Scallops with bacon were sublime and the soup was gorgeous.

“Thumbs down from us”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We arrived here at 1.45pm for late lunch after waiting for what appeared the only member of staff to acknowledge we were there we were told that chef finishes a two so if we want food can we order.
Urmmm let's at least see a menu!!!
We decided to leave.
Sorry but in this economic climate i think staff should try a bit harder, there was four adult all hungry and very thirsty!!

“Arrived as strangers - left as friends.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We stayed at the Frog for six nights over New Year. Our room had a wonderful view of the marina and castle, and was spotlessly clean. Food was fantastic thanks to Eddie the chef, bar and restaurant staff could not be faulted. One of the best Hogmanay's we've had in a long time.
We enjoyed it so much we are going back in the middle of March.

Had a superb dinner; with great service and friendly staff. Really liked it. Had been a bit concerned it might be a bit too cafe-ey, but it surpassed our expectations and then some

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We stayed once again en route to Campbeltown and were not disappointed. Lovely room, great location, friendly staff, fantastic food. Our dog was welcome too, which for us is important. We'll be back.
