This hotel is beautifully located with the most stunning views of the bay. However the rooms feel like a B grade motel. They are simply appointed, nice bathroom, tired, ordinary furnishings and when you walk in there's a musty smell. We could easily hear footsteps from the floor above. If you do stay here ask for a first floor (second... More

This hotel really does have the most wonderful views. Most of the rooms are in the Cedar Wing which, as other reviewers have said, it rather like a motel but a motel with floor to ceiling windows looking out to fantastic views! Our room, in the Cedar Wing, was a little tired but our main complaint was that the walls... More

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review and we are sorry you did not find your stay peaceful. We do have 6 dog friendly rooms, which are extremely popular, so we do recommend you ask for an upper floor or main house room if you aren't keen! Our chickens are very popular with guests - they are... More

Saw a good deal on Groupon for this hotel and phoned the hotel to check their dog policy. During the call, I was told I could book at the same rate as the Groupon offer. On checking out, I was charged the full rate (double the price) and when I queried this I was told the e-mail confirmation stated the... More

The view of inner Hebridean islands shimmering in Loch Melfort will leave an indelible memory. We had this view every morning and evening, not only from the bedroom and the Hotel restaurant, but also from the adjoining Bistro. The food in both venues was of a very high standard, well cooked and presented by an engaging staff. The only unstable... More

Recently stayed here in one of the superior rooms in the cedar wing with family from America. Had a great time, the staff were very helpful, the food was wonderful and the views were lovely. Our only mistake was in only booking one night before moving on. Will definitely return for a long weekend break.

Another excellent stay at Loch Melford. The location has had many accolades but the excellence of the welcome and food should also be praised. The owner/hosts make every guest seem special and this is reflected by the youthful well trained staff. The dining experience is first class and I would recommend the local venison which was cooked to perfection.

The bedrooms were very well equipped. The bathrooms were equipped for disabled guests which is quite unusual and good to see these days. The bed was really comfortable and I slept really well despite the somewhat tired looking bed linen. For dinner I started with duo of house cured local halibut (both ceviche and cured), with a salad of summer... More

Thank you for writing a review and I have passed your comments onto our Head Chef. We are encouraged to use less seasoning these days for health reasons, but there is always salt and pepper on each table. We note your comment about the bed linen - we do all our laundry in-house and it is replaced each season, but... More
