“Big cosy fire in the restaurant, lovely lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Reasonably priced lunch menu, freshly cooked food big portions with very friendly service as always. There is a big welcoming fire in the restaurant/bar and the setting for lunch is very nice indeed. We were staying at tralee bay holiday park so this was nice and handy for lunch. Big old hotel with good value food - worth a visit

You must try one of the special rooms, they make for a most unusual stay. Some parts need a bit of tlc, the food was much better than our last stay 4 years ago and we could not fault it. Lovely public rooms, elegant and old fashioned. Typical Victorian style stuffed animals in the reception.

Room Tip: The special rooms on the first floor of the original building are all of different and unique decors...

Enjoyed our stay here. A bit behind the times but we were told that updating is planned. The bigger rooms in the main house are the best, but also the most expensive. Food is good and the restaurant is popular with locals, which is always a good sign. Makes a good base for both north and South of Oban and a trip to Mull and Iona.

The Falls of Lora is one of my favorite hotels to stay at, another home from home, you get very well looked after by attentive friendly staff. The quality and choice of food spoils you I always want to try everything but not possible. This hotel is a good stopping off point on the way to the Highlands etc.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front or for one of the individual boutique rooms if you are with a partner

This was our second trip to Scotland and we had to go back to the Falls of Lora Hotel, not just because it is my partner's middle name, but the hotel is lovely. We had the split-level suite upstairs for two nights, and it was well maintained and serviced. It is not often that you get to speak directly with the owner and hear about her travels seeing the Hotel is filled with momentos from all over the world. The Bistro food was good clean Scottish fare, however, the staff don't take constructive criticism very well - they would rather storm off than discuss the issue - but eating was only a small part of our stay. We enjoyed the old fashioned breakfast in the dining room with personal table service - just so elegant. Can't wait to go back a third time.

This is one of my favourite hotels family run and a home from home. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with all you need for a good nights rest.
The menu in the restaurant is very good with a specials board with the days catch and chef's special.
We had two courses and were more than pleased with the quality and presentation of the food.
The beers and wine are very reasonably priced and excellent quality.

Room Tip: A room at the front has the best views but rooms at the back offer four posters and suite type rooms...

We were camping in nearby Benderloch and popped in here to try a spot of lunch on a typically 'dreich' Scottish day! Hotel seemed quite grand and imposing from the outside with a steep set of concrete steps up to main front entrance. The interior is what I'd describe as old fashioned with a touch of grandeur. Lots of 70's floral wallpaper, floral soft furnishings, floral carpets etc, but welcoming nonetheless. We enquiries at the small reception desk about having some lunch and were directed through to the restaurant. Again quite old fashioned, lots of wood panelling, mirrored walls and artificial plants everywhere, but we were given a warm welcome from the lady in charge. We were the only ones in the restaurant so the service was great and quite personal, she brought out some crayons and colouring sheets for our kids which they loved. I had the fish and chips which was excellent. Massive portion and very fresh tasting, lovely light crisp batter, not greasy at all. My partner had the macaroni cheese which he couldn't finish as he said it tasted really oily and buttery. I had a little try of it and yes, it was very oily and buttery tasting (not very nice). The kids had chicken goujons with chips which were very nice. I would go back here, just a shame my partner didn't enjoy his food.
