The sea views from Loch Melfort Hotel 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.

Today’s offer is for a one or two night stay for two in a Cedar Wing classic room including a continental breakfast each morning. Each Cedar Wing room has either a private terrace or balcony overlooking the stunning views.
Both option one and two also give you a £20 voucher towards dinner in the 2 AA Rosette Asknish Bay Restaurant which serves fabulous local and seasonal produce including freshly caught seafood.

The Loch Melfort Hotel has attracted lots of enthusiastic reviews from happy guests. This is what a recent guest had to say:
‘We have just returned from a four night Christmas Break. The scenery is beautiful and the rooms, spacious and very comfortable. The staff are extremely efficient and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious, with a very varied menu and there was an extensive drinks menu. There was a great atmosphere, festive without being intrusive and was everything that we had hoped for. Despite being wet and windy, the hotel was cosy and felt very welcoming to return to. We would definitely recommend this as a great location for a winter break, and would love to return ourselves.’
