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 pleasantly surprised by the hospitality - great bar - lovely picnic table to sit outside and enjoy the rare sunny afternoon. the only downside was the bathroom there was really no shower just a bath tub with...

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...

Went for a meal at this super little hotel on the second day of our holiday in Tarbert. We. we were so impressed with the food quality that we booked for three other occasions during our two week stay in the area. All the food ( whether shellfish, meat or fish), was wonderful and the deserts were fantastic. The staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small, family-run establishment, the West Loch Hotel dates from around 1780, and is well known locally for having some of the best food in the area. We are well placed for guests passing through, and for those wishing to spend longer in the area, exploring Argyll & the Isles. Ideally located for people heading on the whisky trail to Islay (just minutes from the ferry), most guests find our large whisky selection the perfect start to their adventure! A charming, former coaching inn, the hotel has been sympathetically modernised over the years, retaining many of its original features. Our rooms are dog-friendly, with a choice of double or single rooms, and we have also got family rooms available for those travelling with children. Able to cater for small events, from birthday parties to weddings, we always go the extra mile to make sure your special occasion is extra special. ... more   less
