If the most interesting thing about the view from your desk is your colleague’s roots coming through then we recommend a change of scenery.
In particular, we recommend that you drink in the views from the Loch Melfort hotel.
They are breath-taking. The islands of Islay, Jura and Scarba lie across the water from the hotel while the famous Correyvreckan whirlpool is around three miles out to sea.
Give the scenery a spin with today’s Big Deal on overnight stays at this welcoming, family-run, country house hotel just south of Oban.
The Loch Melfort Hotel is an award-winning hotel located on the Argyll coast. Every room has a magnificent sea view and, at just a two and a half hour drive from Glasgow and a three hour drive from Edinburgh, it’s a great place to escape for a getaway break.
Guests can look forward to roaring log fires and big comfy sofas; a 2 AA Rosette award-winning restaurant; miles of spectacular shore line for long walks; 25 individually styled boutique bedrooms and a warm welcome as demonstrated by their VisitScotland gold rating for customer service.

The Loch Melfort Hotel has attracted lots of enthusiastic reviews from happy visitors on TripAdvisor. This is what a couple of very enthusiastic recent guests had to say:
‘Faultless. A hidden gem. My husband, four year-old daughter and myself stayed in hotel… amazing room, view across the water was spectacular. There was even a telescope provided in room. The room itself was tastefully decorated and had a lot of character, it was also spotless. From start to finish our stay was perfect, staff and level of service second to none. Our daughter was the only child in the hotel and was made to feel special and very welcome. Food was delicious and catered half portions for our daughter… Looking forward to a return visit, our favourite hotel by far!!’
‘This is the fifth time we have stayed in this hotel. The standard of service is constantly high in all areas… We have stayed in the main house and in the Cedar Wing. We actually slightly prefer the Cedar Wing as the panoramic windows allow you to enjoy the fabulous view. The rooms are spotless and very well appointed. The food is excellent both in the restaurant and the bistro… staff without exception are lovely. We always leave refreshed and planning our next visit.’
