Certificate of Excellence
A small, family-run establishment, the West Loch Hotel dates from around 1780, and is well known locally for having some of the best food in the area. We are well placed for guests passing through, and for those wishing to spend longer in the area, exploring Argyll & the Isles. Ideally located for people heading on the whisky trail to Islay (just minutes from the ferry), most guests find our large whisky selection the perfect start to their adventure! A charming, former coaching inn, the hotel has been sympathetically modernised over the years, retaining many of its original features. Our rooms are dog-friendly, with a choice of double or single rooms, and we have also got family rooms available for those travelling with children. Able to cater for small events, from birthday parties to weddings, we always go the extra mile to make sure your special occasion is extra special.

Stayed one night prior to catching ferry to Islay. Would rate somewhere between 3and 4. Room fairly standard. OK bathroom with decent shower. Good breakfast. Didn't eat at night ventured into Tarbert. Staff all pleasant enough.

Spent one night before heading to Islay. A short drive to Tabert and also to the ferry. Comfortable rooms and a good selection for breakfast - the full Scottish was huge. Lots of parking with a restaurant on site.
