We used Shearings vouchers, received after a ghastly coach holiday, to have a self drive break at this hotel. We paid extra for a room with a view which was fantastic. The room was large, warm and very comfortable with a lovely view of Loch Lomond with Ben Lomond behind. All the staff were helpful, polite and friendly. The public... More

Apologies for the late review. I accompanied my mother on a 4 night break with Shearings, hoping it might be the first of many. The trips were fine, driver nice, can't fault the fantastic scenery and great location - especially liked the train journey to Fort William. Unfortunately the same could not be said for the food or the hotel.... More

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
