Loch Melfort Hotel
A unique retreat, set in 17 acres of gardens and beach on the romantic coast of Argyll in the Scottish Highlands, Loch Melfort Hotel is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We offer a mixture of affordable luxury and comfortable tranquility, with uninterrupted sea views from every bedroom, roaring log fires and deep sofas in our lounges and spectacular coastal scenery to explore and admire.
Watch the day unfold before you cross the water to the islands of Islay, Jura and Scarba, with the world famous Corryvreckan Whirlpool 3 miles out to sea. The magnificent National Trust for Scotland Arduaine Garden is right on our doorstep and a gentle stroll amongst the beautiful rhododendrons, before dining in our award winning AA 2 Rosette Restaurant, or informal Chartroom II Bistro, will make your stay even more magical.
As you step into the warmth, comfort and tranquility of this comfortable country family home, you cannot fail to notice the uniquely informal and relaxed atmosphere – there’s a cosy bar and welcoming sitting rooms with squashy curl-up-and-read-a-book sofas next to our roaring log fire.
The Main House is principally Victorian, built by J. Arthur Campbell in 1896 – and some of the beautiful original features remain, including oak panelling and 19th century family portraits. Wonderful arrangements of fresh scented flowers adorn treasured occasional tables and bookcases. A plentiful supply of the latest lifestyle magazines are available in the lounges, or just sit and look at the view with afternoon tea, pre-dinner drink or night cap.
