We were staying just up the road at the Bluebell Cottage. The West Loch Hotel was recommended as a place to go for a good meal. Food was delicious. Service was good. Was given a quick tour of the hotel in the event that we might return to that area one day (hope so). West Loch is across the road;... More

We visited the West Loch Hotel restaurant whilst on holiday to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food was amazing, there were four of us and we all had something different and enjoyed everything. The only down side was that some of the restaurant staff were a bit inexperienced and didn't use their initiative. Overall it was a really nice evening... More

Lovely location with views over the sea loch. Good range of food to choose from, however, we were not shown the specials board! Comparatively expensive dishes for the portion (nouvelle cuisine). Very slow service. We were going to have a dessert but as we were unable to get the attention of any staff decided to leave instead.

Excellent steaks cooked to perfection and presentation was very good. Can eat either in the restaurant or the bar area. Both areas look as though they have been recently refurbished

Lovely food, prepares to a very high standard. Just could not give it more because it was so slow, and a few communication issues with our order, just not exactly what some of our Larry ordered, and they have very specific dietary requirements, which was met, but some errors were made about what we ordered both at dinner and breakfast....

I stayed at a nearby airbnb, but had dinner here. It was a wonderful, fresh meal, and I enjoyed talking at length with the bartender about local whiskies (and sampling a couple).
