The main attraction of this small inn are the splendid loch views from the restaurant although you need a window table or one at the far end to fully appreciate them.

Small Inn on a loch with minimal multitasking staff. Lovely views, good food, desserts to die for, reasonably priced drinks. The room was a little small with lovely water views.but couldn't fault anything. Will definitely return!

Particular mention for Heather. We ate in the bar which was busy with locals and people that had boats moored nearby - made for...

I have read many of the other reviews and had to check to see if I was on the right property listing. Our stay on April 28 got off poorly from the start. We waited about 15 minutes for someone to check us in. There was nobody at the reception desk, nobody behind the bar, nobody at the counter in...

Where do you go if you need a fix of beauty and ozone with a dog? Ardfern that's where. The Galley of Lorne is a great Pub Restaurant with excellent clean and nicely appointed simple rooms.
