The place itself has all the basics covered well. The place is very scenic and peacful, staff friendly and helpful at all times.
The restaurant looks out to the sand beaches and golf course, so on a good day makes a lovely view while having breakfast/dinner. There is also a decent lounge area if you dont want to go to the bar.
What annoyed us was that despite being told we did not need to book, we arrived at the hotel just before 9pm and yet staff wouldnt serve.
This is simply how it works out in the country, and not really reflective of the hotel itself. It's worth mentioning in case anyone else goes there with expectations of a late meal, since the same applies any other hotel in tarbert.
I would still recommend anyone to check this hotel out. As long as you check the weather first!
- 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
