Historical Traveller Reviews of Loch Fyne Hotel

Fantastic Loch Fyne Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have just returned from visiting the hotel for the New Year celebrations and can only say that they exceeded our expectations. This was our first New Year in Scotland and the whole experience was excellent. The staff and Manager were always friendly and helpful and it is a pity that other hotels do not always follow their example in customer service. Top marks for the food and accommodation and thank you for a wonderful Scottish New Year!

Good, but pricey

from Corran
I agree with comments that this is a comfortable, clean hotel with freindly staff.
The one disappointment were the prices in the restaurant. The food is good, but is, in my-view, £2-£3 per course over-priced. The wine list is also too expensive. I've bought a better year of the wine I had and I think the 'mark-up' on the wines is too great.
Stick to providing value for money. Don't get too greedy.

s the gripe?

from SteamingMariner
Comfortable, well furnished and maintained twin-bedded room. The only criticism of the room would be of the heavily shaded, low wattage lighting that made reading at night difficult. Public rooms well maintained (if somewhat bland in decoration)and staff always very helpful. Food good, promptly and well presented. Magnificent view over Loch Fyne and a short (less than half-mile) walk into Inverary town. Some websites put the distance from Inverary up to 3.5 miles away: perhaps this refers to some other hotel that (some) of the ex-colonials have a problem with. I would certainly return.

weekend break

from porty boy
just back from a weekend at the loch fyne , the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the dining room staff. the leisure facilities were good ,but take care the floor around the pool is a bit slippy.
the food in the dining room was superb and service promt and very polite. the dining room manager "barry"was most helpful.
now the down sides , lighting in the rooms was a bit dim, and the choice of lagers was not to my own taste.
over all we had good time , would certainly go back .

Excellent service

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed at the Loch Fyne Hotel on several occasions with my sisters and friend, and the level of service is exceptional. The welcome is excellent, and all staff are very friendly and look after you very well. This is the reason why we always return for two weeknds in the year. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. Incidentally, the location and scenery is outstanding as well!!

Great view! Very poor hotel.

from Forlee
have stayed in the Inveraray vicinity three times each year for the last 8 years. For those 8 years we've looked forward to snaring a reservation to try out this hotel.

Well, we finally did -- but we'll never be back to this hotel. While it may be situated on the magnificent Loch Fyne, it's certainly not up to par in terms of quality. Reasons:
-- POOR ROOM VIEW AND LOCATION -- We've NEVER stayed in and around Inveraray and NOT had a view of the Loch or at least some scenic vista. At Loch Fyne hotel, we (and all others in the 3 story back wing) were treated to a view of ONLY the back parking lot. Our room, on the first floor, was 10 feet from the car park and, as the window did not have a sheer curtain, we were faced with the options of spending our time in a room where all natural light was blocked by a thick bulky drape OR offering a full view into our room from outside.
-- TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE -- We ordered a morning newspaper and on both mornings none was available for us at the desk. After the first morning with none designated, we asked for them to confirm the order for the next morning. But, again, no newspaper. However, on check-out we were presented with a bill with a charge for 2 newspapers. Brilliant! Also, after arriving at 2pm after an overnight overseas flight, we were informed that check-in wasn't until 3pm and that we could come back then to get our key but couldn't access the room til then. We checked; the room was ready for occupancy -- but, like at least 10 other waiting guests, we had to wait and line up at 3 to get our keys; we've NEVER encountered hotels behaving in this manner -- if / when the room's ready access is given. Finally, we arrived in our room and discovered two twin beds; we called to the front desk to indicate that we'd indicated a preference for a double bed. They phoned back to tell us that they'd checked the online reservation and no such request had been made. We were HOLDING in our hands a hard copy of our confirmation and could see the request as it was confirmed from their website -- but we were still told we hadn't requested this. VERY, VERY poor handling by front desk staff on all items.
-- Parking lot was noisy late at night with cars coming and going and an early morning visit by the garbage removal truck (garbage bin 15 feet from window) meant that sleep was not easy. This was compounded by bright hall lights that were kept on the first night (but not the second). Outside flood lights on the parking lot were lit til 1am.
--- Breakfast buffet had run out of many items and it was ages to refill. One egg, one sausage as indicated in previous notes.

We shall never,ever return here; we kept pining for the atmosphere and the wonderful food of the place on the other side of the lake (never again will we be unfaithful)!

Post New Year Treat

from DeniseArbroath
Had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 night stay from 2nd Jan with my husband & 2 children. Got a special rate of £55/2 nights per adult through Easybreaks and on DB&B it was so much value for money. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to help and to chat to the kids. The leisure facilities were excellent also. The rooms are so clean and spacious and the food was amazing and plentiful. The price of drinks was the only thing which let the hotel down i thought but everything else made up for it. Have stayed here before but it's definately better nowadays. Plenty to see and do around the area, a definate must...go book a stay now!!!

Fabulous hotel, excellent food, friendly staff.

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have had many short winter breaks in the Loch Fyne, by ourselves and with friends and would not hesitate to recommend it. Relatives from Dorset even brave the December weather and drive north to join us for 3 nights - they say it is worth it!

Top Local Tips for Inveraray

Pub The george hotel was really good. We went there for lunch and at night. The food was good and it had a great atmosphere.

Inverary Jail I'd recommend a trip to the Inverary Jail and if you're staying at the Loch Fyne Hotel you get a discount on entry.

A Great Meal I would recommend a meal at the George Hotel in the high street.
