Medal-winning hospitality

Loch Melfort Hotel at Arduaine near Oban

Very timely, as we get set for Olympic fever, is the news that Loch Melfort Hotel at Arduaine, near Oban, has been awarded a Gold medal by VisitScotland in recognition of outstanding hospitality.

Since taking over three years ago, owners Calum and Rachel Ross have had the aim to make their friendly, 3 star, family-run hotel, (just 21 bedrooms) one of the best places to stay on the West Coast – and now they have succeeded.

The Asknish Bay Restaurant has two AA Rosettes, with a menu based on seasonal local produce, as well as homemade bread, marmalade, ice cream and traditional Scottish tablet.

This is such a romantic setting for walks along the beach. But whatever the weather, it’s a cosy place: on cold days, snuggle up beside the fire with a dram. Live jazz music every Saturday too.
