Just returned from a midweek stay at the Tarbet booked through Shearings.
This hotel offers warm comfortable rooms with tea making facilities, there are quiet areas as well as the bar area in which to sit. Daily papers provided for use in the lounge by guests.
Food is excellent. Served at set times but gives you an hours flexibility so you are able to choose when to attend.
Location: perfect for a get away from life as little in the village except tea room, post office and loch. Cruises on loch but check if operating due to season. Walks in forest behind the hotel, circular and one to neighbouring village. Local bus service runs from outside the hotel if wish to explore but check times for return travel.
Some people may not like the location as isolated, excellent for walkers also if use the trips provided in the tour.
Hotel has entertainment each night, bingo, only for 1/2 an hour, the singers are very good and also provided Scottish dancing 1 evening.
Some areas of the hotel are a little tired but you are only going to sleep in the rooms, to me this was not an issue. It appears to be going through refurbishment at this time which did not cause any disturbance.
Pity about one lounge which was too cold to sit in as this was very cosy looking and quiet but we would have asked for heating to be turned up. So no big deal.
Lovely break, attentive staff, a great time to get away from the hustle of usual life.
- 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
