I stayed at a nearby B&B but had dinner here before taking the ferry out in the morning. I quite enjoyed an upscale Scottish meal and had a great conversation with one of the owners as I perused and sampled from their extensive whisky collection. It was a warm welcome on a chilly fall evening. I highly recommend the restaurant!

Was here with my elderly mother and nothing was too much trouble, they took great care of her and made a real fuss of her. The restaurant was well above average and reasonable, the bar was a great place to be in the hotel and the log fires mad a great atmosphere. It really is a nice place to stay

Lovely scenic views of lake across the road; breakfast with a view. Short distance to Tarbert town. Friendly proprietors. Most comfortable feather pillows ever. Fine dining restaurant on site and comfortable bar lounge.

Don't know who's been writing these reviews on trip advisor but I can honestly say the rooms we stayed in were a disgrace. Food fantastic nice downstairs. Screws poking out of the sides of the bed cobwebs all over lights. Slept for about 2 hours

Our visit was a test for a potential visit to Islay next year and we were looking for an hotel near to the ferry. We stopped overnight on our way home from Machrihanish. West Loch is an old building with a comfortable lounge and bar area and well furnished restaurant and rooms. Our room was comfortable with good sized beds...

We were traveling on an early morning ferry to Islay the next day and this was closest to the ferry landing.

Cannot fault this hotel from the Owners enthusiasm to the facilities available. Useful location and handy for the Islay ferry. Wonderful food and a nice room. OK, the shower was restricted but the Owner explained the difficulty and time delay required for upgrading. I would strongly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I ( plus our 2 boxer dogs) stayed overnight before taking the ferry to Islay. At check in we met the owner who was absolutely lovely. Very friendly and you can tell that he is very passionate about his home and livelihood. As we were travelling with my in-laws who have a dog the staff were very...

The hotel is average at best however when up in this area you really struggle for accommodation and the prices reflect they can charge what they like..as others noted the hotel needs some tlc and things like wallpaper falling off and badly finished tiles just need fixed to bring it to a higher standard, the TV is far too small...
