We stopped here for one night to break up a long drive from camping in Jura back home to Manchester, it was the cheapest place we could find for 4 people + 2 dogs in the area. The hotel looks like it was once very grand but is in need of refurbishment now. Location is great, overlooking the loch but the rooms were shabby e.g. peeling/stained wallpaper, stained bath, TV screen with lines accross it. Perhaps we got a bad room because we were travelling with dogs though. The fire alarm went off twice in the early morning but there was no mention or apology at breakfast. Having been camping very basically for the previous 4 nights we were looking forward to a good breakfast but it was sparse and not very vegetarian friendly, lots missing from the menu that they didn't have. I would recommend the cooked breakfast on the Islay ferry over the breakfast we got at the Arrochar hotel! Looked like the hotel had recently been taken over as alot of the nitices still said Oxford hotel. On the plus side, the pottery down the road is worth a look, there is a nice walk up through very pretty woods to the railway station and the loch fyne restaurant ~20 minutes down the road is excellent!
