A small, family-run establishment, the West Loch Hotel dates from around 1780, and is well known locally for having some of the best food in the area. We are well placed for guests passing through, and for those wishing to spend longer in the area, exploring Argyll & the Isles. Ideally located for people heading on the whisky trail to Islay (just minutes from the ferry), most guests find our large whisky selection the perfect start to their adventure! A charming, former coaching inn, the hotel has been sympathetically modernised over the years, retaining many of its original features. Our rooms are dog-friendly, with a choice of double or single rooms, and we have also got family rooms available for those travelling with children. Able to cater for small events, from birthday parties to weddings, we always go the extra mile to make sure your special occasion is extra special.

We stayed here on the 12th and 13th February. A very warm welcome from Bethany who could not do enough for us. First the negatives. This hotel is situated on a fairly busy road, traffic noise is quite bad if you are in a front facing room. There is a twenty minute walk into

Smashing wee hotel. Great food and lovely staff. We had Room #1, which had a great view onto the Loch. Good size room, comfy bed and very clean and tidy. Dinner and breakfast both very good too. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Tarbert.

Apart from being a lovely place to have a quiet drink this is a real find. My family are associated with Tarbert and have used this hotel for functions. We do not need accommodation in Tarbert but if we did this is a cosy oldie worldy hotel which serves good food and lovely

First time here. Hotel is what you expect for West coast, ok, clean. Staff, however, were extremely welcoming, chatty, helpful and engaging. Couple drinks and we were looking forward to our meals. Dining room was pleasant and warm on a nasty evening. Food... prawn cocktail, too
