On our arrival at the Tarbet hotel, Loch Lomond, we found ourselves having to wait at the reception, despite the only ones been present. Until we made ourselves known to a lady siting in a rear office. She left the reception area and returned with a mature scottish member of staff who made no apologies for the inconvenience of our...

Traditional Scottish Hotel offering clean room,comfy bed,good food served by courteous well trained polite staff.It does not claim to be five star but considering the evening entertainment which was excellent on Friday night was included in the price it was a really good deal. Plus the Guinness was spot on.

The staff were all helpful and pleasant it was everything else about the hotel that let it down. The walk...

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
