Reviewed November 1, 2013

Stayed again at the Ardlui a couple of times recently, as a convenient overnight stop en route to the Highlands from the Midlands. As always, the staff were pleasant and helpful, the room clean, comfortable and well appointed, the food well cooked and plentiful. My husbands only criticism is that there is no draught beer, only keg, but he manages to survive a few pints of that so cant be too bad! Special mention for Tracey, the maker of the worlds best "Cheeky Vimto"!.

We were grateful to Matt of Ardvorlich House B&B for taking us to the Ardlui Hotel for our evening dinner. We ate in the inner bar which was luxuriously warm and cosy - after a long, wet and windy day walking. The bar staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu was somewhat reduced but that did not stop us enjoying a really good evening meal - with good beer and wine.

Had a great 2 night break at the Ardlui Hotel on the banks of Loch Lomond.
The room we had(no 15) had a great view across the Loch, but we did find it rather small in comparison to a modern Hotel.
That said this Hotel has been standing for over 200+ years, that added to the experience.
The Staff and service was excellent and both Evening meals and Breakfasts were very good.
1 word of warning if you have small children be careful the hot water in the en-suite sink will be too hot for a child and may scald.
Would recommend this Hotel without hesitation.

Room Tip: Any room on the South side will face the Loch and a great view.

I am writing to review the restaurant as we did not actually stay at the hotel.
We noticed the hotel on passing and decided to go there for dinner after a disappointingly cold welcome at Ben Arthur's Bothy in nearby Arrochar.
The young waitress was very helpful and welcoming our party and had no problems when we asked to pull two tables together to accommodate us all together.
The menu choice was exceptional and did not in any way hinder the quality. The kids meals were excellent and my partner even said that she would have chosen the kids spaghetti bolognese over her adult main because it was so impressive, which it was. It wasn't out of a tin bolognese but real proper bolognese however not so fussy that a child wouldn't eat. The 'adult' meals were absolutely beautiful and just the perfect portion size. The meal was so good that we decided to spoil ourselves with dessert and were glad we did. They again were beautiful with locally supplied ice creams which gave it the local touch.

Overall: an excellent restaurant in a beautiful location and we will be looking to book a stay in the rooms in the coming months.

We stayed for two nights whilst on our way to Edinburgh from Mull. All the staff were very pleasant and friendly, including Hector the hotel dog. We ended up eating in the restaurant both nights (including celebrating my partners 50th birthday) and weren't disappointed - thanks to the "Ardlui girls" for his balloon and the candles in his steak pie :o)
Sadly had to mark you down a wee bit for the decor in parts of the hotel, but all in all a lovely place to stay and would highly recommend.

We always like a bit of feedback from our customers.

Nice location overlooking the loch. Room clean but a little tired looking and dated. We used the restaurant twice and had good food both times (great steak pie!) Best thing was the warm and friendly staff - special mention for one of the girls who we saw on arrival and throughout who had a nice helpful, chatty, but professional attitude - a credit to the Ardlui!
