“Very friendly and excellent breakfast!!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

My family had been staying in the apartment above the pub next door and me and my girlfriend booked into Lochside as they could accommodate our young pup as well. It is located right next to the loch and next door to the Ben Arthur's Bothy apartment which was ideal for us.

On arrival we parked around the back and, although the weather was not great, the views of the loch and the mountains were outstanding. Checking in was simple and quick and the room was very clean, spacious and the views we had from the bay windows were outstanding. All in all, although an overnight, it was something different for us and the Lochside did its job very well. Initially I thought that £70 for an overnight was a bit steep but the more I thought about it, for me my girlfriend and the dog, including breakfast, the price is actually OK.

And the breakfast was huge and absolutely outstanding - something which pleased me!!

Room Tip: We were in room 4 and the view was outstanding

We stayed overnight on the 13th September it was a great experience the room was clean and comfortable and the welcome from the manageress was excellent.

The views from both rooms we had were great. There is a lovely decked area outside to sit and have a drink. The breakfast was thoroughly enjoyable you could choose from a good menu.

An all round good stay and is highly recommended would definately stay again. Many thanks to staff.

Room Tip: We had room 11 next to the breakfast room could have fell out of bed for breakfast.!!

We stayed at the Lochside Guest house and was a bit hesitant when we drove up to it, it was just by the side of the road and didn't look that great from the outside next to a 'old' pub. However, when we got inside it was just so different, very clean and contemporary looking. We stayed in room 10 which I think has been recently renovated as it was very nice. we thought traffic might be an issue but all the rooms are facing the loch and no road noise is heard. The view of the loch was lovely, although the say we visited it was a bit grey outside. One word of caution, Arrochar is a small village and it's best to eat before arriving if you're arriving after 8pm as when we arrived the pub next door stopped serving food (although the chef did offer to make something) and the only place open was a fish and chip shop.

Just returned from staying a full week at the Guest House. We had room 11, just off the kitchen/morning room which worked great for us as we were up early everyday. Would not recommend that room for late sleepers as you can hear the morning chatter at 8. However we loved it as it felt like home!! The views of the Lock were stunning both morning and evening and a cup of coffee out on the picnic area was nice. The chef cooked up the best breakfast that we have ever had in a B & B...made to order. The house staff were friendly and always willing to offer a hand. Always a smile on their faces. Connected to the Guest House is a nice pub where we enjoyed our evening meal.....not fancy food, but good and a friendly atmosphere with many locals. We plan a trip back in the future.....

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Friendly staff, gorgeous views, a nice family sized room and the best cooked breakfast I've had in a long time. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Loch Lomond area !!!
