“Scotish Break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

Just returned from a 5 day break with Locks and Glens ,cannot praise hotel and staff enough, from the moment you arrive you are treated as a valued guest.
The staff were very polite always greeting you with a smile and nothing was to much trouble for them. Food was excellent, rooms were comfortable clean and to a high standard.
The location of the hotel could not have been better situated at the end of Loch Long having fantastic views, (view greeted you as soon as you walked into the hotel). The hotel grounds were ideal for a stroll.
The holiday was great value for money and worth every penny, we will certainly be using Locks and Glens again.

Room Tip: Request a Loch view when booking

Our recent stay at the Ardgartan Hotel completes our our visits to all the Lochs & Glens Hotels. It lives up to and maintains the L & G reputation for:
1. Superb value for money.
2. Location & ambiance.
3. Competent Staff.
4.Good food.
5. High quality fixtures and fittings.
All we need are now are longer holidays on offer.

If it's quality with value for money that you need from your holiday, then "Lochs & Glens" are the Company to travel with.
The Hotel "Ardgarten", which was newly built and opened in July, 2012 is a credit to the Wells Family, who have six other delightful hotels,each with their own characteristics.
Situated no more than fifty yards from the edge of "Loch Long", with it's wonderful view of the Loch and the mountains rising either side, the mirrored image reflecting on the water, a slight mist lingering in the early hours, what could be better than to wake up each morning to such tranquility.
Tucked away from any roadway the approach winds it's way through woodland, then suddenly this magnificent building is in front of you, drawing you in for further delights.
A member of staff quickly boards the coach to welcome you all and to inform you of your room number and time of the evening meal, whilst other members of staff are delivering you cases to you room.
Each room is designed with space and comfort in mind with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space built into an extra long dressing unit with a suitcase stand at the end. Tea making facilities, hair dryer, telephone and TV along with a comfortable armchair and occasional table are all there to give you that home from home feeling.
The en-suite bathroom was also designed with space in mind, with it's deluxe shower and fully tiled walls and floor. Everything about this room was "First Class".
You would think that all the praise so far couldn't get better, but believe me it does. Every single member of staff, from the Reception to the Housemaids greeted you with a smile and a warm welcome.
As a retired publican I speak from experience of the standard of service we all received, and it was obvious that each and everyone of them had been "Professionally" trained in their respective duties. It was a pleasure for me to watch them at work, and the Management are to be complimented on the high standards.
Another part of you holiday is the quality of food, and this was another excellent result. To organise several large parties to eat as groups, and to be given a choice of food, is a challenge to any kitchen and waiting staff, but this was not a problem. The service and quality of food was brilliant.
Included in this package holiday was a daily excursion to various places of interest, with once again very friendly and knowledgeable drivers giving us a commentary of the area and historical information throughout the trip.
For those people that have never been to "Scotland", and who have probably been put off by the long travelling distance, let me assure you that it is well worth it. Comfort, lunch and tea breaks are frequent, so your journey is made as relaxing as possible, plus your driver will keep you amused with a story or two.
My praises for this Hotel and holiday could go on and on, just like the other destinations I've been to with "Lochs & Glens", it's such a pity that some other holiday companies cannot follow in their footsteps.
These past full six days, (Without my Bar Bill), only amounted to £319 with insurance and no supplement for a single person, what could be better value?, I can't wait for my trip next year, which has already been booked, (and it was the last seat available), that's proof of a popular company.

Room Tip: Book early and on the Forth Floor if possible

From the moment you step through the entrance door the "WOW" factor kicks in, for in front of you is this huge panoramic bay window with it's fantastic views down Loch Long. With the quality of all the furniture and fittings throughout this new hotel its easy to see why it has cost nearly £10 million pounds to build. Everywhere is so spacious from the lounge, restaurant bar and function room. Our hotel room was huge with a double bed and a single bed with a table and 3 chairs, vanity unit, drawers, wardrobe and still plenty of space and stunning views down the Loch from the window. The en suite shower was also very spacious but still leaving plenty of room for the toilet and wash basin area. From boarding our coach in Dorset the Drivers made us very welcome and this continued throughout the holiday with all the hotel staff being so helpful. This holiday was fantastic value with such a good selection at all meals nicely presented, we had excursions on the steam train from Fort William to Mallaig, a cruise on Loch Katrine aboard the 110 year old steam driven vessel the Sir Walter Scott, another cruise aboard The Waverly - the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world from Danoon on Loch Long and Loch Goil,and a day trip to Edinburgh with each of these excursions travelling through the picturesque Scottish scenery and all of this for only £319 each.

Room Tip: All front facing rooms have Loch views.

I have recently returned from my first Lochs & Glens holiday, staying at the Ardgartan Hotel, and what a way to start, I really could not fault a thing about this holiday from the hotel to our driver Dave, everything ran like clockwork, the hotel in my opion was superb, the view from my window - breathtaking, I really cannot praise this hotel highly enough, the staff were always helpful and friendly and always on hand to help or answer queries.Well done Lochs & Glens, I can't wait to go again and be thoroughly spoilt.

A fantastic holiday, really lives up to its' Title. we could not have had better weather cruising the Kyles of Bute and the Jacabite steam train was brilliant; views were out of this world. Steve and Brian our drivers looked after us really well as usual. This was our first time at Ardgartan what a Hotel, views and grounds are stunning we saw red squirells and deer close at hand, and great food and staff at every visit to dining room. A personal welcome to our party by Ian at the start with good wishes at the end !
