Beautiful hotel and beautiful location but VERY dated inside. Room 107 was a disgrace - smelled musty and the bathroom was a living nightmare. Upgraded to Room 130 which was much nicer and had loch views BUT it also had dust on the bedside tables, the remote control was held together with dust, grime and sellotape and the 'tv' was a throwback from the 80s. There was no telephone in the room which the manager seemed unaware of - surely he should know what his rooms contain? Squeaky and uneven floorboards everywhere. The fake plant at the top of the main staircase was thick with dust.
On the plus side - clean beds, good food, nice staff.
I'd love to be a fly on the wall if Alex Polizzi dropped in.......
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated within one of Scotland’s largest national parks, the Tarbet has had a rich history as a resting place for travellers for over 400 years. The present building dates back 250 years and was built in the Baronial style. The exterior has recently been redecorated and the hotel presents an impressive first impression even today. There are a total of 69 rooms arranged over two floors, some of which offer spectacular views. The surrounding scenery is second to none, as the hotel looks out over Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond from its location on the banks of the Loch itself. Admire the beautifully decorated restaurant where some tables overlook the loch and take advantage of the spacious entertainment lounge with bar. The Tarbet also has the benefit of a comfortable residents’ lounge with board games and books to help you relax and unwind. The perfect end to a great day’s sightseeing. ... more less
