We had a lovely time over the New Year with our family. The accommodation was excellent and well equipped. We would have no hesitation in recommending Melfort Village to anyone thinking of booking a stay there.
It is now over 20 years since we discovered Melfort Village and we have only missed our annual visit twice in that time. As visitors at the start of the season we enjoy the peace and quiet of Scotland in the winter. You have to go no further than your front door to see the rugged beauty. Our cottage, Garden Cottage is cosy, comfortable and well equipped. It has a nice little garden...hence the name. Most years we view it from the sitting room windows although this year it was warm enough to extend the time filling up the bird feeder. Lots of birds to be seen also red squirrels and this year...more
I was ,greatly impressed by the charm and peace of the location and the obvious thought that has gone into the furnishing and equipping of the accommodation. The weather was perfect, but if we're otherwise there were plenty of indoor activities to entertain all ages. All the members of staff were welcoming and dedicated to making our stay memorable. I look forward to giving them an opportunity to welcome me again, soon! Kind regards, George Paterson
All great at the cottage and we enjoyed our stay as usual. We would like to suggest the following relatively low cost maintenance tasks to be addressed: 1. The floor boards upstairs in lounge and bedroom are very squeaky at several points. This really disturbs persons sleeping in the 2 bedrooms below. Remedy should be relatively simple as was done in Haybarn cottage several years ago. 2. The shower door in downstairs bathroom needs attention 3. A good garlic press and a salad spinner would be welcome additions to the great kitchen.
Very pleasant cottage. Cosy and warm, enjoyed having log burner on but not essential for heat. On-site restaurant pleasant and welcoming, good food, reasonable priced. Music night on Monday evening well worth attending, local musicians as well as some regular holiday makers playing and singing folk songs. Located in quiet area, good for walking with our dogs.
Stayed for 2 nights of peace and quiet in this well equipped cottage in beautiful surroundings. We didn't use the facilities on site but will hopefully be back in the summer months.
We enjoyed 2 full days staying at Melfort Village and on the whole, we really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful, clean and comfortable and in a beautiful location. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and took every effort to make us feel welcome. Our children had the wonderful opportunity to get swimming lessons which were brilliant and reasonably priced, Olwynn could not have been nicer or better for our children. Unfortunately at the time we were there, the pool was cold as there was a problem with the heating and the jacuzzi was only usable on our last day. The play r...more
Stayed in Farm Cottage 3. Very spacious well equipped cottage. Top quality fixtures and fittings. Loved the open fire. Kindling, coal and logs readily available to buy at reception. All staff we encountered were so friendly and helpful. Lovely meal at Shower of Herring restaurant on site. Great music night with local musicians again in the Shower of Herring . We loved our holiday in Melfort Village. A peaceful and beautiful setting. Home with batteries recharged! Hope it won’t be too long till we return!
Its a great place to get away and live with nature for a few days,... very comfortable, clean and a good drive...
Had a wonderful week in melfort village location was great beautiful cottage with log burning stove perfect for winter evenings and great facilities on site would definitely return !!
Wow what a great place, on checking in (hassle free) we opened the door and from kitchen to bedroom everywhere was clean. We had just come from London staying in a 5 star hotel and I can say Melfort village was cleaner. It also felt that they wanted dogs there with a dog box from bowls to biscuits and TOY great magic touch. The dog field is amazing been able to let a beagle off in a secure field is a bonus to us. They are lovely walks and only 20 minutes away from Oban its in a great location too. The games room was good for the kids and will return as soon as we can.
Our recent visit was our first but will NOT be our last!. The accommodation was excellent and all of the activities like tennis, golf, basketball were all free, which was a nice suprise. Even the two well equipped games rooms, swimming pool and full size snooker table were free. Staff were friendly and helpful. Even if the weather isn't great there is so much to see around oban that you won't be bored. All round it was a great stay and we are already looking to book again for the summer.
I booked at Melfort to have a week with my Dad. He has just finished cancer treatment and has a few weeks to wait for results. This break was to help take his mind off things and put my mind at rest that he was coping. The communication with the Staff before and during our stay was great. WG2 is in great condition and very clean upon arrival. We used the pool, sauna and spa pool 6 days out of 7 a great way to relax. I had brought 1 of my dogs along and it was a great suprise to have a welcome pack with treats and a toy included, another thoughtful touch. Cant wait to return with my wife and ou...more
Excellent holiday beautiful scenery lovely staff and facilities.comfortable accomodation and very well kept grounds
First visit to Melfort Village and hopefully not our last! We stayed in the Walled Garden Complex and enjoyed comfortable and cosy accommodation with a great view of the loch. Great little restaurant on site. ...freshly prepared and reasonable food served by owner Kat who was a pleasure to deal with. The swimming pool was lovely and warm and had it to ourselves almost everyday... luxury! Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.... great advertisment for Scotland. Thoroughly enjoyed our week there.
We had a lovely time and we diffenetly coming back. Good place for families. Our kids enjoyed swimming pool and games room. You will find diffrenet attractions for adults and kids. Highly recommended
This was our first time at Melfort and it certainly won’t be our last. We had a lovely time with Brian our dog. Some good walks locally, a great dog field we even had our own little garden. Music night in the shower of herring restaurant was great. Staff in reception were all great and very willing to help and advise. Thank you or a lovely week .
Visited for the first time and exceeded our expectations. We were in walled garden but resort offers a very varied selection of accomodation to suit all tastes. Reception staff were outstandingly friendly and helpful. This was the most dog friendly resort we have visited in particular the pooch welcome pack and access to all of the resort's facilities. We very much hope to visit again in the future and will certainly recommend to our friends and family.
Excellent week in a great little resort. The property was well prepared and had all we required. Dog and kids also had a great week
accomodation great log burner a must at this time of year but adds to the ambiance facilities good staff helpful will return again maybe summer and winter
We were a little doubtful as to the location - just being outside the inner village . But actually it was lovely , beautiful views of the loch and great walks from the front door. Would recommend this cottage .
The only real problem lay in the fact the hot water system is very poor with practically no hot water at bath time despite use of the booster system. It needs power to heat the water every afternoon for say three hours. It would be better if wood burners replace the open fires as heat not great.
A relaxing and very enjoyable stay at Melfort. Lucky with the weather and the scenery was spectacular.
Nice people, beautiful area, comfy and clean accommodation, great facilities. Several local walks mapped out we did the dam one which was very atmospheric in damp misty conditions. Only stayed three nights, but will come back to explore more.
the accomadation was perfect for our pre xmas get away, you will need a car but the scernery round about was beautiful. Highly recomend for a taste of the west coast of scotland
Stayed for five nights over the New Year period. Very comfortable apartment. Shower of Herring restaurant very good and very welcoming.
Very relaxing break. Beautiful setting. Great facilities. Plenty to do. Friendly helpful staff. Everything you need.
The shoal of herring really is very poor now. That’s plenty of characters submitted. No wonder the restaurant is so empty.
Charging £10 a day for electricity is a bit cheeky but over all a lovely place to get away from it all and relax. Was nice and clean and nice loacation. The shower definitely needs upgrading however. We also had a very relaxing massage on site.it was superb. Overall i would recomend melfort to others.
As always Melfort Village proved a big hit again. Stayed in a different cottage as there was more of us and also took over another cottage for two nights. Scattered my husbands ashes and planted a tree/bench in his memory. Everything was perfect.. The company the views the family Scottish music and even the weather. Melfort Club was brilliant very helpful lovely and kind to all of us throuout our stay. Thankyou everyone
Our week in Stables West, Melfort Village was broken up a bit due to work demands but once again found this place a little oasis of peace and quiet. Weather was beautiful all week with some stunning sunsets on Loch Melfort. Having been to Melfort Village before, once again it did disappoint.
This resort was very comfortable and the staff very helpful and pleasant The food outlet onsite reasonably pric d which is good if you have children.A lovely location and complete peace.
