The Commodore Suite is spacious and well appointed. However, the bathroom, in particular the tiling, could use refurbishment. The sauna was well used following short walks battling against storms Barbara and Conor over Christmas 2016. FreeSat TV, wifi and a phone signal all enhanced the experience. Better weather, a barbecue on the veranda and my bike and canoe would make...

Another lovely Christmas on the loch enjoying the luxury of the house while battening down from Hurricane Barbra, eating nice food and enjoying fine wines! Excellent facilities with everything required to prepare a lovely Christmas lunch, beautiful log fire very warm and comfortable. Santa even found us! Staff warm, friendly and helpful as always. We will be back!

This is a natural harbour sheltered by mountains, in a remote area of the Argyleshire countryside. The pier is actually on private land, but there is access to the water a few hundred yards away. There is a small shop and some equipment for hire.

Myself and the other half have been trying to find the time and a place to enjoy a break where we could switchoff. The Melfort Pier apartments were the ideal solution. The apartment itself is fantastic, all the requirements for switching off, exploring the stunning scenery or a mix and match. Would strongly recommend and we'll more than likely be...

Spent a few days here last week. The flat was immaculate and so comfortable. The weather was not ideal but this was not a problem as the flat was so comfy and peaceful and restful that there was no need to go out. The views are stunning. The kitchen really well equipped. Bed is huge! And a sauna too!

Spent the most incredible week in the Captains Quarters. Went fishing off the pier each morning - which was FAB until we had a visit from the most beautiful seal! The guys onsite are so friendly, hospitable and welcoming - nothing was too much trouble. There's a stunning walk if you drive up the road past the pier & park...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the West Coast of Scotland, just 16 miles south of Oban, the Gate way to the Isle, is Melfort. Melfort Pier & Harbour is right on the shore of one of the most beautiful sea Loch's in Scotland, where the Highlands come down to the sea.............We have 10 Scandanavian houses, all with a different lay out. Some all on one level. Other ones up stairs. Every house has a superb view of the Loch. Our main asset is our unique location,protected on the seaward side by uninhabited islands and sheltered by the hills of the Melfort wood to the North. Our high quality, self contained houses, surround our private harbour. When you are here, we provide you with privacy and the freedom and flexibility to do what every you like. We have 6 houses for the less mobile. 2 Pets per house are very welcome ... more   less
