“Brilliant staff but dated hotel and uncomfortable bed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

The staff were very good, attentive, informative and friendly. The bar and lounge area are nice areas to relax in. The hotel is very dated in terms of decor, furniture and menu. The food tasted lovely but the restaurant music was not my cup of tea, bagpipes in an empty restaurant and the Emma Bunton Album, not a big issue, but it did make us want to get out ASAP. Rooms had all you need but were quite small, although we had special deal so likely to have worst room. I found the bed Extremely uncomfortable and didn't sleep at all, the springs were very prominent and at least a mattress topper would have really helped. Great location and I'm sure some other rooms would have great view.

Got a deal for one night which included a 3 course dinner and tour of the local brewery. Overall a really good deal for what we paid. The hotel was in need of some refurbishment HOWEVER it was clean, the staff very friendly and the food in the restaurant was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a loch view

We had a lovely time in Argyll Hotel. The staff are very helpful and warm, food in the restaurant and bar was delicious. The hotel & room were clean but need some TLC. However if you are not expecting ***** you will be pleasantly surprised. We will be back as we have a great time in Inveraray.

What a lovely break we had at the Argyll. Relaxed atmosphere and very comfortable. Spacious room with a lovely view of the Loch. Staff were great. Food was excellent. All in all a fabulous overnight stay. Thank you, Argyll!

Room Tip: Room 104, triple room (double & single) with a lovely view.

Stayed here for the September weekend. First time in Inverary & thought the place was lovely. We had room 212 which is the 4-poster featured on their website & was very pleased with it. Spotlessly clean & quite large. The public areas are a bit tired but it didn't spoil things for us at all. Breakfast was excellent - one of the best I have ever had.I had dinner here both nights & it was very nice & well presented.The best part of the hotel though is the staff. Special mention to Robbie at front desk & the Mum/daughter/boyfriend combo in the dinning room - nothing was too much bother to them & they actually looked like they were happy to be there. Would recommend especially for the view as you walk out the door in the morning. Loch Fyne Oyster bar just 10 mins drive away too

Room Tip: Room 212 was nice

Just back from a spur off the moment weekend break at the argyll hotel . Booked 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast to recharge my batteries before going into hospital on monday for an operation. We had a fantastic weekend and would like to thank the staff for a lovely relaxing time.

ROOMS :- yes as other reviews have stated the rooms are very tired and in need off upgrading BUT they are spotless clean and adequate. No complaints . We had our dog with us and they changed our room to a bigger room to accommodate.

FOOD :- we were on a dinner , bed and breakfast basis and the food was fantastic. Breakfast was lovely, you could have continental and a cooked breakfast , as much as you wanted, fresh toast, tea, coffee and fruit juices. They also have de caffeinated tea and coffee.
Dinner was beautifully cooked and presented. Couldn't fault it. Three lovely courses . The menu changes each night . We had pate with oatcakes for starters , then hubby had beef and I had salmon and fresh vegetables served in a seperate dish followed by lemon posset and sticky toffee pudding with ice cream. Second nite we had pâté with oatcakes, followed by sea bass and balmoral chicken and fresh veg, then lemon cheesecake and strawberry shortbread with chantilly cream. The food was amazing. COMPLIMENTS TO THE CHEF.

STAFF :- The staff at the argyll are so attentive and friendly. Went out off their way to make sure that all the guests were looked after well. Robbie on the front desk is a star :) , can't do enough for you. Thanks robbie.

BAR AND LOUNGE BAR :- nicely decorated, comfortable and relaxing.

There was also a wedding on at the hotel on Saturday and still everything ran very smoothly.

Thanks to everyone at the argyll Hotel for a lovely weekend. We haven't stayed at this hotel before but would certainly recommend it. It's like a home from home.

See you again in 4 weeks when we will be back for another wee break to celebrate our anniversary.

REMEMBER IF YOU GO TO THIS HOTEL THE ROOMS ARE TIRED BUT CLEAN , they are being done up within the next few months . I believe, BUT THE STAFF AND HOSPITALITY ARE AMAZING. Which makes our break special.

THANK YOU EVERYONE.

This was our second stay at the Argyll this year and once again we had a fantastic stay. Ok the hotel is a bit run down but is seemingly getting a refurb soon but for me the staff make up for it.
The staff at this hotel can not be more helpful especially robbie on the front desk who has been beyond helpful, polite and friendly to us this guy is such a good advert for the hotel and made us feel like nothing was a problem for him.
The food was ok,a bit over priced for what you get but as we are a very fussy family regarding food the restaurant staff where very patient and helpful.
We definitely go back to this hotel every time we are in inveraray.
