Stayed at the Argyll arms hotel with 2 friends for 3 nights, Found the hotel quite easily but what en eyesore when we walked through the front entrance. The hotel is VERY VERY dated. We Visited the hotel in the summer of 2003 & were not very happy, but after reading the trip advisor comment from the new owner (Mrs Wemys) which clearly states that they have spent a SUBSTANTIAL amount of money on updating the hotel, I do not see any difference to the hotel in the slightest. The rooms are exactly the same, though the cleaners do work hard to keep the rooms clean.
The wallpaper & carpets are old & worn out. The dining room is very nice but the carpet is in much need of repair!
Food was very nice but the menu is also in much need of updating, I feel the chefs may be creative but are not been given the chace to shine due to the style of the menu, It does not have any unique dishes or something different for people to try.
Staff were very friendly & helpfull, but it is not a good sight to have a cleaner standing at reception for the duration of our evenings chatting to the waitresses, stinking of smoke & drinking juice.
Nice place but a lick of paint & a bit of understanding would go a long way.
