The Loch Melfort Hotel has attracted lots of enthusiastic reviews from happy visitors on TripAdvisor:
‘Lovely break. Escaped the snow in Glasgow and spent two very enjoyable cosy nights at the hotel. Our room was perfect. Views stunning and bed so comfy. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome. Food excellent as expected. On the Friday evening a bunch of local musicians piled into the bar and the music was great. Some guests had guitars and joined in too. This is a great spot for a break and we would thoroughly recommend.’
‘Lovely relaxing stay. Beautiful location albeit isolated. Stunning views and very comfortable room. All staff are friendly, courteous and focused on providing a fabulous service, with nothing too much trouble. Food was very enjoyable too.’
