Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and ate in every night. It is in a wonderful location and is a part of Scotland we had not explored before. The walk out of Tarbert on the Kintyre Way is a must because the views over Tarbert and toward Arran are wonderful.
The food was absolutely excellent and as a good as I have had anywhere. Much better in my view than the swanky London Hotels. The room we were allocated was OK the downside for us was that it had a bath rather than a shower. Having said that the view over the loch and the food more than made up for it.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and could not do too much for you in making your stay as enjoyable as possible.
There is a great selection of Whiskies and a special gin or two from Islay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A small, family-run establishment, the West Loch Hotel dates from around 1780, and is well known locally for having some of the best food in the area. We are well placed for guests passing through, and for those wishing to spend longer in the area, exploring Argyll & the Isles. Ideally located for people heading on the whisky trail to Islay (just minutes from the ferry), most guests find our large whisky selection the perfect start to their adventure! A charming, former coaching inn, the hotel has been sympathetically modernised over the years, retaining many of its original features. Our rooms are dog-friendly, with a choice of double or single rooms, and we have also got family rooms available for those travelling with children. Able to cater for small events, from birthday parties to weddings, we always go the extra mile to make sure your special occasion is extra special. ... more less
