“Last food stop of the week-end”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We had been away on the west coast bringing the yacht back to her winter berth, and had eaten out all week-end, The Ardencaple was a welcome place to eat as had been dining at some very expensive places on the previous nights, with some disappointment!
The food was tasty and hot with friendly helpful service, and the 5 of us had nothing but praise for the food and service.

“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

The 'Caple maybe isn't the most salubrious hotel but for a nice selection of pub food at reasonable prices in a good atmosphere it's very good. A main course and drinks for a family of four is about £40.00 and you can choose from pasta, burgers,fish and chips, curries, roasts or steaks. Nice staff too.

“Great Value, excellent staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012 via mobile

We have stayed at The Ardencaple several times over the years and it did used to be a bit tired however since a refurb of the rooms I can not fault it.

In the years we have been visiting I have to say the staff are an absolute asset. Nothing is too much trouble and they are fantastic with children. It's rare to find staff so dedicated to customer satisfaction.

Overall this is a great place to stay and the breakfast is fresh, hot and cooked to order. The meals in the bar are pretty basic but you get what you pay for and everything is tasty and served with a smile.
