It was a real treat to stop in for dinner on a cold miserable evening. The Seafood here is delicious and fresh. Lovely staff and the dog always gets a wee treat too. Definitely be back soon.

I ate here during one afternoon, where I came in after a long travel first by bus and then by foot. After being soaked in rain I was ready to eat anything, so I was not prepared for the astonishing meal I had at West...More

I wasn't overly impressed with the food here, considering the prices charged. If the prices were lower or the food was better I would have given it a better rating.

Choice limited to rather unhealthy 'bar food' - fast food alike. Seafood platter acceptable if hungry. Staff slow and not helpful. I only hope they do a better job for dinners.

Dinners and breakfast very good. The choice of food also very good. Plenty of choice for breakfast, lots of tea and coffee.

The hotel is a mile from town, so a 15-20 minute walk, although there is a reliable taxi service in town if the weathers not to great. Also the Campbeltown and Glasgow buses stop outside the hotel.

  • This restaurant is at West Loch Hotel
With an abundance of world famous local ingredients at our disposal, including Creelers smoked salmon, locally landed seafood, venison and game birds, our chefs create superb meals. Good quality dining and excellent service go hand-in-hand at the West Loch Hotel. You can enjoy both in our light and airy restaurant. 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.
