Thankyou for taking the time to leave a review.

I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and found the time to use our new pool table while having a drink at the bar even though you were here for work.

I will pass on your kind words to all of the staff.

Good luck on your travels and we hope to see you come stay with us again soon.

The spectacular food, staff and general vibe is what have brought me back here time and time again. Last night I ordered a burger with chips(the best chips I have EVER had) and onion rings, when the food came I proceeded to eat my chip and onion rings which where both more than amazing and then when I bit into my burger it brought the meal to a whole other level, to the point where I almost cried, and ever since I have been calling it a “transformicle experience” and it truly was.
This place is truly amazing( again it’s an over used word) and I strongly suggest that you come here!

a team! The staff in the West Loch are truly amazing,as is the service they provide. Massive thank you to then all especially Emma, Matthew and Cheffie! Nothing is too much trouble for them, including making bespoke custard (not on menu) to accompany the gorgeous sticky toffee pudding.
This is our second visit. We came in July and ate here every night. We were so impressed we just had to return! We are delighted too be here again. Do yourself a big favour and go eat (and stay) there. As our daughter says.. the food is transformative!

Stayed overnight with family and dogs after cycle touring. Very welcoming and the staff were super helpful.
Great seafood dinner with a good wine list and a good breakfast.
It's not dead posh but definitely clean and tidy.
Great location looking out over the loch and a short walk to Tarbert.
