Loch Melfort Hotel

In a 'peaceful setting', sheltered by woodland on Asknish Bay, Calum and Rachel Ross's country hotel is 'a very good place to stay'. He is 'very much present, well presented and charming'. Twenty of the bedrooms, each with a balcony or terrace, are in a timber-framed extension linked to the house by a partly open walkway. 'The view from our room was breathtaking: it was light, with plenty of storage, and a good-sized bathroom (though a feeble shower).' Children are welcomed: extra beds can be provided for two suites and certain bedrooms. There are Highland cattle, ducks and hens 'to keep little ones interested'; good walks in the grounds. In the summer, family-friendly meals are served in the Chartroom II bistro, which has a playground in front, and a box of toys and games. In the more formal Asknish Bay restaurant, chef Peter Carr's locally sourced menus might include dishes like sea bass, sweet potato, soured lime and curry spiced dressing. Guests can walk to a small beach; Arduaine Garden (National Trust for Scotland) adjoins the grounds. (Margaret Wall, and others)

  • A peaceful setting. Lots to do in the area. Our light room had plenty of storage. Good-sized bthroom but feeble shower.

  • A lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings. The staff are friendly and efficient, and the food is excellent in both the dining room and bistro. The peace and quiet in this lovely location is the perfect chill out. They have Highland cattle, ducks and hens to keep little ones interested, and nice walks in the grounds.
