We had 2 nights in Melfort House and although the owners were away Dawn, who was looking after the house, made us feel very welcome and at home. We werre greeted with a pot of tea and her home made cake.
The views down the loch were stunning even though it was raining off and on. Breakfast and dinner were delicious with local produce including home grown salad, vegetables and potatoes.
Lots to see and do around the area. All in all a very relaxing enjoyable stay.

Room tip: All rooms are have lovely viewa but the best one is the Loch view.

A beautiful house with stunning gardens and views, we had a super 4 night stay at Melfort House and felt thoroughly spoiled from the moment we arrived. Matthew's breakfasts are a real treat and a special mention for Dawn who looked after us on our last night and couldn't have done more for us even after we'd check out - many thanks for the coffee on our impromptu return!

You really must visit Melfort House if you're planning a holiday on the west coast of Scotland.

Dawn and her helpers from Catalonia made our two night stay in Melfort House one of the best short breaks we've ever had. The excellent accommodation, the superb food, the personal attention and the beautiful location all combined with perfect Scottish weather to give us a memorable experience. If you have the opportunity to go, please don't hesitate. We are looking forward to returning.

So many things have been said about Melfort House in the previous reviews and we heartily endorse them all - what a truely memorable stay we had for 3 nights. The location is fabulous at the head of Loch Melfort, within its own large and beautiful grounds - you really do feel as if you are staying in a Scottish country house.

The rooms are all amazing, we were lucky to stay in the Loch Suite and it is enormous, with fabulous views over the garden and Loch Melfort - you could spend ages just looking out of the window. The decor is stunning and very luxurious - the rooms are also immaculate and very well equipped. The sitting room and dining room are also beautiful rooms to spend time in - you can really relax away from the stresses of everyday life.

You cannot write about Melfort House without mentioning the food - the Victoria sponge cake at tea was very welcome and definitely set the standard for everything else. Breakfast was a real treat - the full Scottish with the creamed mushrooms was really tasty and you must try the chilli omelette, it has a real kick to it. But it was definitely the evening meal cooked for us by Matthew which was the real treat for us - it was lovely to have someone cook just for us and the food was seriously outstanding, far, far better than many restaurants - and this was one of the highlights of our whole stay in Scotland. We would really recommend that you try an evening meal cooked by Matthew and with the added bonus of the fruit, vegetables and salad coming from Yvonne's polytunnel.

We will definitely return as the whole experience was a lovely end to our stay in Scotland and Melfort House is located in a fabulous location, with so many things to do in the surrounding area - there are plenty of walks from the house alone. Everything was just perfect in every way and it is a real credit to Matthew and Yvonne.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights and, oh my, had the most splendid time. As others have noted, Matthew and Yvonne are excellent hosts and go out of their way to make one feel welcome. The house, the food, and the setting are all very special. (The sheep pastures add to the peaceful nature of the locale.) Travel advice is freely volunteered and many worthwhile destinations are within easy reach for a day trip, including extensive gardens, Kilmartin Glen's incredible prehistoric sites and museum, the Isle of Mull, the Slate Islands, castles, etc. It was always a pleasure to return to the house at the end of a day's excursions and enjoy the lounge and grounds while awaiting a delicious dinner in the gorgeous dining room. We certainly hope to make a return visit.

Room tip: I would wager that all the rooms are very attractive; it's just a matter of size and view.
