The Inveraray Inn

The Inverary Inn is the first Hotel you see when you drive into Inverary from the castle. Very nice location. The room was tidy and the breakfast was well cooked. My only remark is that the components of the full english breakfast are on a self-service buffet so it's not cooked on order specifically and therefore some of the components might not be too hot but rather luke-warm. As the village is very small, everything can be reached by foot in a couple of minutes. Only one complaint/suggestion about the room: The toilet in the room had no toilet brush, which should be a standard piece of equipment in any toilet. Also, the walls in our room were very thin, we could hear someone snoring in another room...

This hotel has recently been refurbished throughout. Décor very fresh and rooms bright and comfortable. Only disappointment was dinner facilities. Whilst the food was lovely it was only offered in the bar or conservatory and staff were thin on the ground. Most rooms had a lovely view over Loch Fyne

The hotel was clean and comfortable and although the bedroom was on the small side it was more than sufficient for our needs. The staff were very helpful and cheerful. The highlight of our stay must have been the restaurant with beautiful views over the loch, friendly staff and excellent food (not to mention the very good wine list!).

Had a lovely evening and nights stay at the Inverary Inn. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Rooms are spacious with a large en suite, although we were place on the second floor which necessitated a climb! The conference held in the large meeting room was well organised and catered for over 100 people without fuss. Well done.

Stayed overnight on our journey round Scotland. The room was tiny nothing like the picture on the Web site and very tired looking. Breakfast was really good can't fault that at all and if it wasn't for the waitress who wore glasses we had no acknowledgement off any other staff..wouldn't be visiting again

Struggled to find a family friendly Sunday roast dinner throughout Inveraray. Stumbled here and what a find 2 courses £9-95 3 courses £12-95 superb Served us roast lamb with trimmings and carrot cake to follow xx

Arrived at 14.10 tired, with booking pre paid to be told that the check in is at 15.00 hrs onwards. On complaining that this was unacceptable and asking for a manager was immediately given a room. A bad initial impression! The room no 201 was on the top floor up a spiral main staircase which was a struggle with luggage.The room was absolutely tiny with the double bed taking up almost all the space, the window overlooked the side of the hotel where the petrol station is located and as the window was draughty and not shutting properly it was quite noisy.The toilet roll holder was broken, the bathroom lino had what looked like cigarette burns in it.Money has obviously been spent on the public areas which looked nice, just a pity room 201 and upstairs corridors haven't had any TLC for years.

Overall I found my stay here to be fairly good. The welcome could have been better and an offer to help and with my numerous bags would have helped. The room was small but the stunning view made up for it. I cannot fault the room overall as it was comfortable. Have to say the Wi-Fi was excellent which is rare on open networks. Breakfast was a buffet but I was seated in the bar area the other side of reception which was awkward as I had to keep carrying my valuables with me as I went to the restaurant to pick up the food etc. Quality of the breakfast was mediocre with very little mixed fruit and underdone sausages. However the thing that bothered me most was the overwhelming stench of fish in all the communal areas. If it wasn't for the stunning location I would have scored much lower as much attention to detail was poor.

My wife and myself Stopped here for an evening meal on Sunday 23/4/17 around 6pm at first we wondered if we would be able to get food . Nice pleasant young barmaid told us to pick a table . We were served soon after. We both had the steak n ale pie with mash n veg .Can honestly say one of the best I've ever tasted in a rich gravy n good quality steak . Top marks to the cook and the other staff for making this an enjoyable visit . Would highly recommend this restaurant .

This hotel has an absolutely fabulous position looking over Loch Fyne. The views of the water and distant snow capped mountains are fantastic. The hotel is being refurbished and is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The food in the restaurant, particularly at dinner, is good (although the wine is poor value) and the restaurant manager and most of the staff are cheerful and friendly. The beds were very comfortable. The Inveraray Inn is dog friendly, which was a great plus for us, although it's a bit of a shame you can't take your dog in the hotel bar. So far, so good. Unfortunately, our stay was marred by noise from the bar. There is a bar open to the public which is at the back of the hotel, as was our room. The bass from the bar music is clearly audible until about 11pm or later at weekends. The bass reverberations are followed by noise from departing customers and then the staff calling goodnight to each other. This wasn't a real problem for us, as I am a night owl and my partner is slightly hard of hearing! However, it would be annoying for anyone who wanted to get to sleep much before midnight. What I did object to was, on the Friday night, being woken at 1am by raucous bar customers hooting and yelling in the street. This went on until about 2am. The manager's response when I had a quiet word with him the next morning was to shrug and say, "Well that's where the bar is and that's where the rooms are." Hmm. He also said I should have called the night porter, but that just didn't occur to me at the time and although it might have solved that particular problem it would not have changed anything for future guests. He said he had had complaints about the noise in other rooms at the back but not about the one we were staying in. I'm not quite sure of the relevance of that statement! That, coupled with his air of disbelief and attempt to tell me that the revellers must have come from some other bar, was a disappointing way to deal with my attempt to alert him to a problem. He finished by telling me he would be checking the CCTV (the implication being that he couldn't credit what I was saying) and muttered a grudging "Sorry if this affected your stay" as I was going out of the room. He also told me that he didn't know any hotel managers who didn't hate Tripadvisor! A great shame, because the hotel itself is very pleasant and in a stunning position on the loch. My advice would be to book a room at the front of the hotel and pay the supplement if you don't want to be kept awake or woken in the middle of the night by noise from the bar.
