“Comfiest beds, biggest breakfast & was well looked after by the nicest of people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

A wee impromptu over night/run on the motorbike traveling from near Kilmarnock. Beautiful run on the way up Loch Lomond side (lovely different run on way home via helensburgh) had a fantastic night, with good food & good local friendly welcoming atmosphere in Bem Arthur's Bothy. A wee gem of a place that gives you the full package, great value for money & then looked after by Diane in the B&B was just the cream on top.

Easy to find and ideally positioned right by the loch. The rooms were lovely: warm, clean, cosy and beautifully decorated. We were travelling with our 18 year old daughter and the family room was perfect as it's actually two rooms, one with a double bed and the second with two singles. The view from the window, overlooking the loch and the hills behind, was stunning, especially in the early morning sunshine. Breakfast was just right, served in a dining room overlooking the gardens and the loch. The staff were all great too, very welcoming and attentive - special thanks to Diane! If all bed and breakfasts were as good as this one I'd never stay in a hotel again.

I just booked a room here as a last minute, good value place to stay for one night on my way further North, but was very impressed with the place. The room, staff and food were all superb, not to mention the beautiful surroundings! I'd definitely recommend it to anyone and will look them up first if I'm in the area again.

Our daughter paid for a weekend away for us as a Xmas present so we took advantage and went for our wedding anniversary, we arrived around 8pm in the pitch dark, as this little gem is amongst mountains and loch just beautiful, the staff were concerned as we had said we would arrive around 5pm it was really nice how they were concerned, we were shown to our room small but beautifully decorated, extremely clean spotless infact, very warm as we arrived on a very cold night.
We quickly unpacked and popped next door to have a meal again whay can I say absolutly gorgous then off to bed we went, we woke to the most fantastic view of snow covered mountains and a vast loch at the bottom of the garden you would say, that is how close we were.
Breakfast was delicious cooked by Diane lovely lady, looked afer us extremely well a credit to this establishment.
This place is a must for a visit and we will definatly going back......just a quick mention the girls in the pub next door wonderful also customer care second to none is all I can say as I work within the Hotel industry I manager a 46 bedroom hotel on the Wirral and these members of staff were a credit.
Only down side was that early morning workers were a little noisey leaving for work very early but hey the rest was great,
Well done ladies xxx

Room Tip: Room 2 beautiful.
