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. Not only were we and our Westie and Tibetan Terrier made welcome but we felt part of the owners/staff family. If you want a posh hotel where service...

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.

Better late than never ...We enjoyed an amazing evening meal here in September whilst staying locally on holiday. The Sea Bass was gorgeous as was the Venison and my Haggis for starter was beautiful and packed with flavours. It is not that often I can recall what I ate a couple of months later, but it was that good. I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
