Travellers' Choice
As you arrive the magical waterside setting will take your breath away. If you enjoy supremely fresh seafood, comfortable rooms with stunning views, great individual hospitality and an area with fabulous seascapes with an island feel your stay at The Royal an Lochan will leave nothing to be desired. We are however only 90 mins from Glasgow and on a scenic peninsula.

It was probably our fault for accepting the last room available in the hotel - a small, rear facing double overlooking the carpark and the kitchen fans (so windows couldn;t be comfortably left open) when the main point of staying here must be the views to the front. Our room was small, dark and ill designed. The kettle had a lead so short that furniture had to be moved to put the kettle on the floor so it could reach the plug! The room had obviously had some work/redec done recently but still the handle fell of the shower (which wasn't exactly powerful). There were some nice touches to make the room homely but nothing could make up for the inability to sit by an open window and look at a view. The food was the saving grace - dinner was very pleasant and well presented.

We had a short stay in early June. The hotel wasn't full but felt reasonably lively. It overlooks a beautiful deep bay dotted with small yachts and the isle of Bute. A small dining room and a larger informal dining area both overlook the water. We preferred the larger, less formal dining area (both offer the same menu, served by the same staff). The difference seems to be heavily draped table cloths so take your choice. The food is beautifully fresh and well cooked, though at times we felt seasoning a bit bland, even with the focus on fresh local ingredients that should speak for themselves. The wine list was short but had some very good value white and red wines as well as sherries and dessert wines. The hotel seems to be undergoing a make-over which favours deep green

I went there for nothing but total Relaxation and that is what I got. The Food was FABBY and all local produce which is always a bonus. I had a Superior Sea View room at £140 a night. Great Views of the sea and mountains with a Whopping view of the sun first thing in the morning. Great Staff , Great Food (Could be more on the menu though)....but non the less Great place and the staff were fabby....I would have no problem telling all my friends about it. Even thinking of going back again in the future......BUT beware once you are there you are there...nothing to do but relax....

Beautiful views across the Kyles of Bute, rooms were great and well worth the price. Food delicious- set menu in the Crustacean especially good value at £32 per person. A fine Scottish breakfast to start the day set us up for long walks along the water. Only 5 mins walk from Tighnabruaich itself, the same to Kames. Staff extremely helpful, always on hand to get a beer or a coffee. Couldn't recommend this place enough.

Why can't all hotels be like this?! At last we've found an establishment where the client genuinely comes first and nothing is too much trouble. We came to see the area but everything in the hotel was so comfortable we were reluctant to stray too far. And the food was excellent too, all genuinely local produce.
