Had a great meal, really enjoyed it for the most part. I ordered my steak well done and it came out rare, which I didn't complain about, I just ate the corners and passed it onto my brother. I just wasn't in the mood to cause a fuss and was looking forward to dessert and a calypso coffee.We were then... More

The staff was very friendly upon check in and the food was phenomenal! However, my husband and I had an early ferry to catch and were told by the wait staff to check with the staff before we left to see if we had any charges. We went down at 6:30 am to leave the key and check out but... More

Have now had 3 excellent meals at the West Loch Hotel with family and friends. Very friendly and helpful service. Food served quickly and to a very high standard. A real range of different dishes available on the menu. Clean plates all round, every time we have gone the quality has always been maintained. Costs are reasonable, not the cheapest... More

We were surpised how many nationalities were staying and up scale this little hotel was, and how comfortable we were made to feel, the food (especiallt the scallops) was fantastic, the room was small but well equiped and very clean, but had a fantastic view. Staff were all smart and friendly, nothin was too much trouble. Great stay

Arrived off the late ferry, was given a meal in a very cosy restaurant that was very very good, had a drink at the well stocked whiskey bar and had a great nights sleep in a really comfortable bed in a smart room overlooking the beautiful loch. And all at a great price. Will be back as soon as i... More

We came upon this hotel when looking for somewhere to stay after deciding our booked accommodation was below standard. When we enquired about a room the receptionist was extremely helpful and thankfully there was a twin room vacant. The room was fine if a little dated and the plumbing definitely needed sorting out but it met our needs for the... More

Absolutely fantastic hotel. The most comfortable hotel I've ever stayed in, the beds were fantastic and the lounge was incredibly comfortable. Really could not ask for more on that front. That and the Wi-Fi is fantastic, be aware however the mobile signal is very limited so if you're a serial texter then be prepared to be away from your phone.... More
