“Lovely Break”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

My partner and myself stayed here for two days at the weekend and both agreed it was a lovely hotel, you get exactly what you pay for (everything you need). Our double room was clean, good size and had an en-suite, comfy bed, tv etc. We were lucky enough to get a loch room, absolutely beautiful views, Arrochar is such a lovely place to stay. The food was okay, staff were very friendly and approachable- overall a great stay.
However, the windows were a bit dodgy at times, and could do with new curtains as they were hanging off, and the bathroom needs a good lick of paint- particularly the ceilings and the awful looking grout.

Room Tip: Ask for a loch room- we were in 104 which was a good choice.

Just returned from another excellent weekend break here. This is the fourth time we have stayed here since January and each time has been better than the time before. Our stay this time was for our wedding anniversary. Unknown to me my husband contacted the hotel a few days before we arrived to order a bouguet of flowers for the room as a surprise for me. The staff member at the hotel asked if it was a special occasion and when my Husband explained it was our wedding anniversary they insisted on upgrading us to a suite at no extra cost. The suite was beautiful. Loch facing, very bright and sunny, very spacious and very clean. The welcome we received was as usual very warm. The food was excellent and the restaurant staff were very attentive. The entertainment on Saturday night was very good also. The only gripe about the whole stay was that it had to come to an end! We are looking to book again for June for a family members 50th Birthday and we cant wait!!

Stayed 2 night here last week. First room we were given was like a prison cell with no view; wallpaper coming off the walls; cigarette burn on the only seat and a nasty smell. After intervention of a friend we were given another room which was much better and overlooked the Loch. The staff were friendly and did their best to make us comfortable. Food was satisfactory. Lounge area near bar drowned out by pop music . Could be much better if money spent on it. Very nice location however.

Room Tip: Ask for front facing rooms with view of the Loch. Avoid back rooms at all cost.

Stayed in hotel dinner bed and breakfast 13th april. Lovely views and walks in and around Arrochar. Also had a front facing room with views over the water. Can't fault hotel. Room just what we needed. Food very appetising, staff helpful and very friendly and we were even treated to great entertainment that night. All and all a very enjoyable stay and we will definitely be back.

stayed here for 3 nights on buisness very clean and tidy plus very polite and helpfull staff. lovely location and beautifull views. but if you want a room with a view make sure you request one as rooms to the rear have little or no view at all. my room had a wall about 4 feet in front of the window so very little light getting into the room making the room very dull even on a bright sunny day. but having said that the room itself was more than adequate for the price. my only real gripe was the breakfast not only myself but other guests also recieved different items than was asked for also most of the breakfast was cold and served on cold plates which didnt help. the waiters where very pleasant but there lack of understanding of the english language didnt help either

Room Tip: rear rooms have no views. also limited menu so if staying more than a couple of nights will be best...

For the price of this hotel you can't go far wrong. Friendly service, great meal on dinner, bed and breakfast (again for the price...it's not gourmet but impressive given the value). We requested loch view rooms and had a lovely view of the mountains to wake up to which set our trip to the highlands off to a great start. The room was a little dated, but again, for the price I've stayed in much more dated travel lodge's and we had a decent bed, decent shower and everything you need for a budget stopover. It's by no means a luxury hotel but would definitely stay again - it is worth mentioning that it's used a lot by contractors so maybe not the greatest place if travelling alone!

Room Tip: Ask for a loch view room on booking.
