The hotel is beautifully sited on the shores of Loch Melfort. There's rooms in the main part of the hotel & more in an attached 2 storey extension. Having a (most welcome) dog we were in the latter in a perfectly adequate ground floor room with patio doors out onto a small open private patio which lead directly onto the... More

We had booked this hotel for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary We had expected more luxury for the price. Our 'superior' double room was generally in need of upgrade, it lacked cosiness and was within an annex with an external stair and a corridor giving access to main hotel. The bathroom was a bit basic, the Mira shower... More

We were here in June for several nights with our group of 15 / part of our Scotland Nat Hab trip. Lovely spot / very special view / friendly & helpful staff / good food in their restaurant (halibut, venison) and our room was very comfortable.

Had an overnight stay at Loch Melfort. Room in the annex was very acceptable and nicely appointed. Restaurant meal (dinner) was absolutely superb and above expectation. Hotel location is great with superb view from the restaurant and room. By way of constructive feedback for the owners there are a few areas which disappointed :- 1. Drink prices. We were invited...

We didn't stay here overnight but just popped in for drinks on a lovely sunny afternoon. We sat outside to make the most of the weather and to enjoy the spectacular view and it was lovely! The staff were friendly and welcoming and overall it was just time well spent. Thank You.

We visited 3 years ago. The room was clean and the view good - apart from the weather!!!! We ate in The Bistro this time - it was ok albeit over-priced we felt. The staff were extremely courteous and friendly. We had the continental breakfast which was ok but felt it could maybe have a few additions - didnt seem... More

As previously stated the views are great, both from the rooms and restaurant. We did have some issues with the food however, which we were expecting to be much better. On the first morning I asked for porridge which arrived after about 15 minutes, but was luke warm at best. On the second night we ate in the bistro. I... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here as a nights stay was given to us as a gift. The hotel is easy to find on the road, the views are amazing and the staff are very attentive and friendly. However, the door to our terrace would not lock. The staff were quick to come over and try to fix this but... More
