We went on a National Coach Holiday at the Claymore Hotel Arrochar,Loch Lomond for the Easter Weekend to celebrate my fathers 91st birthday 2014.18th April - 21st April.
We had a great time,hotel a little dated, but food was first class,breakfast and evening meal included,also we had vouchers for free drinks for the 3 days were there
The holiday included tours through to Oban, Calander, and the Trossachs plus a boat trip on Loch Lomond,we had great weather the whole of the weekend, did not have to put a coat on.
Now I know why they call it beautiful Scotland,
The staff in the Hotel were very pleasant and friendly they had plenty of time for you, made a big
fuss over my father on the day of his birthday,We have been on National Coach trips before
and this is one of the best, views were breathtaking over the Loch just outside the front entrance
of the hotel.Will certainly go again.

Room Tip: higher floor better

You picked a great time to visit Arrochar.
The Easter weekend was filled with sunshine and warmth - you were very fortunate!
I'm so glad that your father enjoyed his birthday while he was here and it was our pleasure to fuss over him on his special day.
Looking forward to seeing you again.
Kind regards,
Gary Watson.

We booked up for the National Holidays 5 day Scotland superdeal break. The hotel is in a beautiful location on the shore of Loch Long.
We found the staff to be really friendly and helpful, even the dining room staff who despite being super busy were attentive to our needs.
I think the comments about the hotel being old are a little unfair, yes I agree its not as up to date as some modern trendy hotels but that would be out of place given the location.
In all we had a fab time and met some fab people.

Just returned from a National Coach 4 day Break , Staying at the Claymore Hotel Arrochar, The hotel its self is in need of a facelift , we had three rooms between us and all were a very tired state and one smelt of damp, that was the the bad bit , Staff at the hotel were very obliging and pleasant,nothing was to much trouble for them, Meals were served hot and a good choice from menu for breakfast and evening meal , Being all inclusive we were given 4 drinks per day bar opened 11am 12pm except sunday when it closed at 11.30pm entertainment was ok and they also played bingo if you like that sort of thing.

Having read the reviews beforehand I have to agree with the majority.
The hotel is a bit dated .......but....everything worked in the room......food in the restaurant was great..breakfast and evening meal....If you requested the staff to keep bringing toast then toast was what you got.....staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for you.
We were there on a National Holidays coach so for the price we paid it was certainly value for money....even free drinks every evening.
Now my favorite gripe....WiFi......it was poor in the room but I was already aware of this and if it meant sitting in a public area a couple of times a day then so be it....it was fast enough in the function room....I was streaming radio 5 live when the football was on

Room Tip: When you book ask for a room with a shower
