We have stayed at the Loch Fyne many times and can't fault it. Thanks to Marc and all his team, all very professional and welcoming. The meal as usual was lovely. We're just sorry our stay was so short.

Fantastic location, food high quality, spa is a great differentiator but a few small things need some attention.
In no particular order; dining tables lacked table cloths and heavily damaged surfaces just looked scruffy, dont serve the toast as soon a breakfast starts as its soon cold, serving staff should hesitate before whipping plates away as soon as the last mouthful is taken, bedside lights too dim to read with, travel lodge have better mattresses. Lastly and a first for me - a 2% credit card charge on checkout.
I would stay again but a manager from Crear hotels really should stay and have the guest experience

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 110 - 114 unless you enjoy a view of a sea container

We arrived for a girlie weekend, and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is overlooking the loch, with stunning views. Snow capped hills surrounding the scottish landscape. Our room was very modern, and nicely decorated. Dinner on first night was lovely and the service was superb. There was plenty choice for breakfast. We sampled the leisure facilities and took full advantage of the outdoor hot tub. Would fully recommend this hotel and will be back someday. We got a special deal,which was great value for money.

Room Tip: Our room was 206 which overlooked the back car park. Not the greatest view, but for the price we pai...

I have been to the loch fyne hotel many times , first time for my boyfriends 28th birthday , who is now my husband and ready to celebrate his 40th . I work for a large and well known travel company so therefore have travelled the world and stayed in many hotels , and the loch fyne is one of my favourites that i would recommend to anyone . The bedrooms are spotless and traditional with everything you need including iron and ironboard ,we have stayed in many different rooms over the years including the suite at the front of the hotel with beautiful views over the loch . the pool is really good as well including sauna , steam room and outdoor hot tub and changing facilities as well with lockers . The food ...well what can i say amazzzzing , the 6 coarse taster menu is excellent and if you wish you can also order from the other menu with a small supplement . The breakfast is really good as well , help yourself to cereal , fruit , juice there are lots of choice with a cooked breakfast to order if you wish . The staff can't do enough for excellent service and they do work long hours .. please don't forget to tip they deserve it . Nice lounge area with great views over the loch , they only negative comment i could say is a little entertainment in the evening would be good as we usually walk down to the george after dinner as they have enterainment most evenings .Overall this is a great hotel for all ages and families well worth a visit .

We stayed here for one night and what a night!

We arrived mid afternoon, you can't book in until 3pm, but we were allowed to use the leisure facilities. The changing rooms aren't the best as there are only 2 small toilet cubicles and 2 clear glass fronted showers, so you can't be shy. However, the view from the pool area was stunning. Views were out over the loch and mountains beyond. There's also a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and outdoor hot tub. This could have been a little warmer but this could have been down to how cold the weather was.

The room was lovely and comfy with a slight loch view but nothing to rave about.

The high point was the 6 course taster menu in the evening. Wow!! The food was stunning. You also have the option of choosing from the a la carte menu if any of the course options don't appeal to you, a supplement is charged but it was worth it for the best duck I have ever eaten.

All of the staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also a treat. Continental, vegetarian and cooked options available, all with views of the loch if sitting in the bistro.

In inverary the George is a lovely wee bar to stop for a drink or snack, and on the way back to Glasgow be sure to stop at the Loch Fyne Oyster bar, but be warned, the small plate of mussels is huge!!

As regular visitors and vacationers in Inveraray, this was a greatly anticipated two night break. We again stayed in the Loch Fyne and on a 5pm or Groupon deal. We paid extra to move one night to the Saturday and extra for kids meals as they accompanied us once again. The receptionist asked us to call back next morning and the manager was extremely helpful. When booking over the phone I asked if we could have a room with a loch view & were advised there was one left. So far so good as last visit when in the new part of the hotel, while the room was great there was no view out of the tiny dormer window.

After a good trip up, we checked in and went to room 12. We were really very disappointed at how cramped the room as when we arrived the sofa bed was out and with it being the old wing we had expected rooms to be at least as large as the new part. There was literally no space between side of sofa bed and bottom of double (stubbed toes and banged knees were order of the day for all. We had concerns over security in this part too for the following reasons;
- The hallways were overheated so much that the fire escape doors were wide open with direct access from the rear car park
- The "loch view" was only partial as it was side on looking at a gable end and the flat roof of the restaurant. The windows were old and draughty sash types unsecured and not locked on arrival. After unpacking i attempted to secure the window locks but observed these were badly bent and had likely been damaged during a previous break in.

Staying with the rooms, these were a bit dated and the adjacent stair case sounded like a small posse was charging past when in use. The toilet was also a concern - at least three flushes needed to clear waste as pressure was so low and it took at least ten minutes or more to re-fill. My wife commented that she was glad this wasn't our honeymoon or first romantic weekend or the relationship may have ended abruptly through sheer embarrassment and also not ideal with the wee ones to contend with.

The pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam-room were all excellent but disappointingly the outdoor hot tub was cold, except for the last day when it was slightly warmer than tepid - again, even in last years snow it was really hot - enough to sit through the cold and indulge in a snowball fight. The staff here couldn't do enough to help either, whether lending me a robe when i forgot my wallet or fetching the wee fellas a spare set of goggles when he misplaced his own.

The food was excellent verging on gut busting. I won't dally but check out the menus on line, these really do taste as good as they sound. One negative from my wife is that some 14 months ago we were told that "head office" were working up a kids menu but they could provide fish/chicken goujons, pastas, burger, etc. This time it was the same story so disappointed at lack of choice and that this hadn't been attended to in the interim. Again a big plus for all the staff at all meal times, including pulling off a surprise birthday cake entry for my wife though we missed the effervescent welcome from the past head waiter, Paul - or self styled Pablo.

On return home, we spotted that we had been billed for an upgrade to the a la carte menu on the second night which we hadn't. Only an extra nine quid but annoying none the less.

This must sound really negative but the review was measured against previous visits and regular business trips. I would definitely return as Inveraray was where we were married so for that reason alone we won't stay away. However if the minor aspects are sorted and kids catered for slightly better then the Loch Fyne would have been up at an excellent again.

We cannot give it a "Very Good" but it was better than average so the score ought to read a 3.5

Room Tip: If in family group ask for a room in the new wing as we were very surprised at how cramped the room...
