Entrance Hall impressive, outside renovation urgently needed.
Food Ok varied meals in evening 5 courses for main. Breakfasts varied. Service adequate
View of Loch from our small double bedroom disappointing, Fir Tree obscured main view, first day. Only view of loch through small side window. Bedrooms need decorating clean but tired decor. Bedroom floor creaked at every step taken. Bathroom had to be plastered whilst there - running repairs, Water pressure very good and hot water.
Renovations started whilst there, Peak weeks in August, scaffolding up outside of room completely obscuring view from 2nd day.
Evening entertainment much to be desired.
General area very quiet no shops at all only 1 small tea room and above Only hotel at the Loch Lomond where the boats were hired from.
Loch really picturesque. Great as a day trip area but not for stopping long in. No refreshments where boats were but elaborate WC's.
Booked through WA Shearings, tour company cannot fault except still waiting for an answer from them about scaffolding problem.
Marks out of ten - 4 at most for hotel - but 9 out of 10 for tour company.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated within one of Scotland’s largest national parks, the Tarbet has had a rich history as a resting place for travellers for over 400 years. The present building dates back 250 years and was built in the Baronial style. The exterior has recently been redecorated and the hotel presents an impressive first impression even today. There are a total of 69 rooms arranged over two floors, some of which offer spectacular views. The surrounding scenery is second to none, as the hotel looks out over Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond from its location on the banks of the Loch itself. Admire the beautifully decorated restaurant where some tables overlook the loch and take advantage of the spacious entertainment lounge with bar. The Tarbet also has the benefit of a comfortable residents’ lounge with board games and books to help you relax and unwind. The perfect end to a great day’s sightseeing. ... more less
