“Fabuolous food and nice view but quite expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2010

We stayed at the Lohcnell Arms hotel for one night, in a top floor room with a balcony for a price of £100 per night. The room felt quite average, nicely decorated and with a descent sized bathroom (shower) with a skylight window. TV with wide selection of channels but the wi-fi did not work. The absolute best part of the room was to have our own balcony overlooking the water.
The food in the restaurant was absolutely lovely, I ate a fabulous sesame seed flavoured salmon with fresh veg. They also had many choices on the breakfast menu. The staff were very friendly, and it felt like a family-run hotel with a nice vibe to it.

Recently planned a surprise 80th Birthday Lunch for our Aunty. The staff were excellent and could not fault them for service and helpfulness.The sunday carvery is great value and catered well for our large party ranging from 5 years to 80 years.Food hot and plentiful-everyone well fed . Thanks Lochnell Arms you met all our expectations. Would recommend to any locals to host a family celebration here. Nothing was a problem-when we arrived they had decorated our lunch area-which was a lovely gesture

Cosy warm room with lovely comfortable bed. Food great....especially the chowder soup which was heaven. Staff very friendly and helpful, scenery lovely. Already in process of booking another weekend away and would't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a family run friendly hotel.

We had two meals in the restaurant and they were gorgeous. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Lovely spot. We would certainly go back there if in that area and would highly recommend the restaurant. We didn't stay at the hotel so cannot comment but the restaurant was very clean and comfortable.

I stopped off here for a night on business after I'd had a meal there in the summer, that was why I decided to stay for a night.

The hotel staff were very friendly and I received a warm welcome. The food was superb and I really enjoyed my stay there. The room was ensuite and was absolutely spotless with a beautiful view.
I had a very relaxing time and was made to feel very welcome, certainly no faults from this visitor
