“Much improved”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

This was our second visit to the Arrochar hotel. Our first was 5 years ago. We found the hotel much improved. We had a clean, well decorated and comfortable room with a lovely view over the loch and the Arrochar Alps. The bathroom was clean and well-equipped. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Service in the restaurant, both at dinner and breakfast was prompt and professional. Our only criticism is the food. At dinner we found it disappointing and bland. We were served small portions with no accompanying vegetables. Breakfast was also poor, as all the food appeared to have been kept warm for a long time.... leathery hard eggs, shrivelled sausages and cardboard bacon, and again small amounts. Thank goodness for the good old Scottish bowl of porridge! However, overall, we would stay here again.

We planned to stay here for one night DB&B, but we enjoyed it so much we booked for a second night!
The hotel is in the most fabulous setting and the views from the rooms, bar and restaurant were amazing.
We checked in and recieved a very warm welcome from the man on reception, we think his name was Attila, he was very helpful and checked us in swiftly. We got to our room, which has been recently refurbished and had everything we needed. We had lovely views over the Loch, which was greatly appreciated.
We went for dinner in the evening and we were greeted by Jim in the restaurant, he was very welcoming, attentive and provided a very good service in the restaurant.
We had a 3 course meal and the food was FABULOUS, all freshly prepared and very tasty! We couldnt believe how lovely everything had been.
The breakfast was just as nice, with a lot of different options and once again Jim was there to greet us!
We would highly recommend this hotel, the reviews and the 2* do NOT do it justice at all.
We hope to visit again soon!

Although I had read some bad reviews on this site we decided to give the hotel a go and we were so glad we did.

Yes it is undergoing renovations but these are being carried out through the day. We found everyone very friendly and the location really is spectacular.

I am wheat intolerant and with a little forward planning by myself and being advised to bring my own bread (which I did) everything went well. We had room service our first night and a bar meal the second night. On our next stay we will try the restaurant.

Our room was clean and the bed very comfortable. All in all great value for money, so do shop around for deals.

We had such a good time 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast , unbelievable value , fantastic location even the weather was good ! Excellent food offered both at breakfast and evening meal and pleasantly surprised that there was additional choice to menu on second night, We had one small problem but we went straight to management (much better to report it at time rather than put bad comments if management isnt aware) not only did they sort it but also made a gesture that far exceeded our expectation, Room clean and adequate. Excellent value and we would love to visit again.

Room Tip: We had a loch view room - stunning view

It was with some trepidation we booked two nights at this hotel. We have stayed many times in the area but after a slightly negative experience at our normal hotel we decided to spread our wings a little. This pretty white hotel on the shores of a loch could not provide a better setting. The views of the Arrochar Alps and Loch Long were breath taking. The room was nothing to set the world on fire but comfortable and very clean. We decided to take advantage of the hotel bar and restaurant, and were not disappointed! The restaurant was well presented and the staff extremely courteous and helpful particularly Carlos who was able to give me lots of information about the specials menu. The menu was varied and cooked to perfection - all washed down with a stunning Pinot Grigio. For me, the treat was the very varied whiskey selection in the bar - who needs a distillery visit with a selection like that?!

Negative aspects? Well there weren't any really! It may look a little tired in places but I am assured by the manager that this is on hand. If the planned work matches the friendliness and enthusiasm of the staff then this little Scottish gem will be hard to fault.

A big thank you to Henriette, Carlos and all the other staff for a lovely stay at one of those rarely found gems - Laura (said manager) must be very proud of the jewel in her crown!

We hope to be able to spend more than just two nights here again soon!

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room with a view of the stunning loch and mountains!
