Spent a day at Tarbet recently filming for a BBC show. We were based at the Tarbet Hotel, coming and going to the Loch throughout. Ronnie the manager could not have been more helpful in the lead up to the day, and on the day itself. An absolute delight to deal with. Cast, crew and staff all left with a...

How sad. At a point of extreme beauty in the most enchanting part of Scotland you stumble across the definition of disapointment. Looks great - from the outside - and looks out on one of nature's natural beauties, Loch Lomond. Then you arrive, you go through the doors, and as if by magic you are in 1979! Ohhh dear. Is...

Dear Reviewer, Following a letter that you forwarded to our customer care team, I have amended the original response after further evidence came to light. I apologise for stating that you never brought it to our attention as this was the information available to me at the time. You did bring your complaint to the attention of a staff member...

We had wanted to stay in this hotel for some time and reviews were not too bad so we visited in February 2017. The public rooms have been recently renovated and were fine. My initial thought on the room was that it had been a waste of money paying extra for a room with a view which was held up...

Dear Reviewer, While I am unsure as to what room your friends were given, I can assure you that any upgraded room has features that a standard room does not. Your friends may have been given a standard room that had a small view but would certainly not be as grand a view as from room 201. Room 201 is...

We visited in February 2017 with Shearings coach tours.. The hotel is a Victorian building which has been upgraded over the years. It is well used since it is owned by Shearings .

Really enjoyed the stay. The food was lovely, the service was great and the entertainment was good. The view of the loch from our room was beautiful. The only down side was that the hotel needs refurbished as some off the areas were a bit shabby.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated within one of Scotland’s largest national parks, the Tarbet has had a rich history as a resting place for travellers for over 400 years. The present building dates back 250 years and was built in the Baronial style. The exterior has recently been redecorated and the hotel presents an impressive first impression even today. There are a total of 69 rooms arranged over two floors, some of which offer spectacular views. The surrounding scenery is second to none, as the hotel looks out over Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond from its location on the banks of the Loch itself. Admire the beautifully decorated restaurant where some tables overlook the loch and take advantage of the spacious entertainment lounge with bar. The Tarbet also has the benefit of a comfortable residents’ lounge with board games and books to help you relax and unwind. The perfect end to a great day’s sightseeing. ... more   less
