Late review but thought this hotel deserved one. We arrived on Friday 1stNovember and had two nights here, dbb for a paltry £52 each! I thought with what we had paid it would've been okay at best but having stayed at various hotels throughout Scotland which claim to be 3 and 4 stars, this hotel can rub shoulders with any of them. room could perhaps be described as old fashioned but it was spotless, I mean clean clean, a shout out to the cleaners for that. We were in room 125 which provided a lovely view of the loch, that was just about worth the £52 itself! The weather was torrential rain throughout our stay but the bothy and village inn were close by, cracking places to hole up!
For the price, I thought the meals would be designed to fill a hole but they were absolutely superb. Service was faultless, the restaurant area stunning and it was clear the menu had been thoughtfully created by a talented team and chef, you put those hotels that claim to be a cut above to shame. Every course we had was so good, can't compliment the chef and his team enough, likewise with breakfast, no buffet, served to table, great standard of produce also.
Arrochar is a hidden gem, the nicest place l have been in Scotland( next to Lochgelly of course!)can't wait to try it in better weather!
All of the negative reviews bewilder me, unless you were stung price wise this is the best possible value for money you could get. People expect 5 star standards and are unrealistic, l would say this was easily 3 or 4 though.
Hats off to all staff, so well organised, like a well oiled machine.
Will def def def be back, have recommended about 20 times to others also!
