We arrived here having been disappointed by many hostelries refusing us access because of our dogs. We wanted lunch.and we were directed to this lovely quirky hotel just 5 minutes from Tarbert.

Been to the West Loch a few times now and the service is very friendly (thanks for the extra large coffee cup and cheeky wine with dinner), food is excellent every time just a good place to go to after a difficult day at work and when the weather is good the views out to the West Loch are great!

Set on a wonderful location overlooking Loch Fyne this hotel has potential. The food provided for our family get together was absolutely spectacular and the Chef and team should be very proud of this achievement. Breakfast was of the same standard. Our only let down was the standard of bed in room 7 as we had very little sleep due...

The West Loch Hotel on the edge of West Loch is in an outstanding location with wonderful views. Both the breakfast and evening meal were top quality and very well presented. Friendly staff and very comfortable lounges made my short stay a very pleasant experience

Welcoming and dog friendly. Delicious and very imaginative food using local produce. The rooms are pretty basic but we will return for the welcome and the food. Well positioned between Tarbert and the Islay Ferry port.
