The West Loch Hotel on the edge of West Loch is in an outstanding location with wonderful views. Both the breakfast and evening meal were top quality and very well presented. Friendly staff and very comfortable lounges made my short stay a very pleasant experience

Welcoming and dog friendly. Delicious and very imaginative food using local produce. The rooms are pretty basic but we will return for the welcome and the food. Well positioned between Tarbert and the Islay Ferry port.

Our room was at the front and had good views and very good facilities, though the bed was probably better for those who...

Recent stay at this beautiful hotel with siblings and partners. The view is absolutely stunning with a short stroll to small pier where fisherman arrive wth their catch. The rooms are immaculately clean and beds so comfortable it feels like sleeping on a cloud. The food is exceptional and five star from starter to dessert. The owners were so welcoming...
