“Fantastic staff and lovely food”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed for two nights whilst on our way to Edinburgh from Mull. All the staff were very pleasant and friendly, including Hector the hotel dog. We ended up eating in the restaurant both nights (including celebrating my partners 50th birthday) and weren't disappointed - thanks to the "Ardlui girls" for his balloon and the candles in his steak pie :o)
Sadly had to mark you down a wee bit for the decor in parts of the hotel, but all in all a lovely place to stay and would highly recommend.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a nice review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, Hector will also be pleased. Would you be kind enough to e-mail the hotel at info@ardlui.co.uk and let us know what decor in the hotel needs a wee update, so we can address this. We always like a bit of feedback from our customers.

Nice location overlooking the loch. Room clean but a little tired looking and dated. We used the restaurant twice and had good food both times (great steak pie!) Best thing was the warm and friendly staff - special mention for one of the girls who we saw on arrival and throughout who had a nice helpful, chatty, but professional attitude - a credit to the Ardlui!

Please note this review is for a stay on a camping pod and not the hotel...Loved the camping pod, the location, restaurant staff and restaurant excellent value...however the welcome of vomit everywhere, poor standard of shower block that requires major upgrade and a camping site next to a works yard across the road from the main site very odd...felt like I was in some sort of gated pen...

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you liked the pod and the hotel, although im not sure what is meant by vomit everywhere. The campsite and pods do have a fence around it just for security reasons and unfortunately the roads department are doing a major upgrade to the A82, just 2 miles south of us and they are using the ground opposite the hotel as a site office. This will only be until next spring so if you were to visit again next year, i hope you will have a more enjoyable stay.

Our third time to the cnap mor lodge in as many years .great views from the balcony over Loch Lomond . Hotel is extremely pet friendly which is a big plus for ourselves taking our dog on holiday . Food good in the bar as well as the restaurant , staff very professional ,always get a hello from the owner . only downside in my opinion the lodge needs a little refurb now .whilst this did not retract or spoil our holiday in any way you do notice it if you have stayed before .

This hotel is situated on the shores of Loch Lomond with its own 'Marina' it also has holiday chalets and caravans. The staff were polite and helpful, I use a wheelchair and have a problem with stairs, the staff placed two chairs one halfway up and one at the top to help me getting up the stairs.
The restaurant served quality food from a quality menu, the hotel was very clean and well maintained. We would certainly look no further than The Ardlui Hotel when we next stay over in Loch Lomond.

On our way up to the Highlands we stayed one night at Ardlui. The room was well appointed with views across the loch. Dinner and breakfast were very good with good service. We would certainly return next time we are up that way.
