Hat Trick of Honours at Scottish Hotel Awards

Loch Lomond's newest destination celebrates wins at the Scottish Hotel Awards

The Loch Lomond Arms Hotel is celebrating this week after receiving 3 honours at the Scottish Hotel Awards.

The beautifully renovated Luss hotel was named Regional Romantic Hotel of the Year for Argyll and Lomond, whilst General Manager Alastair Borland and Supervisor David Masterton were each awarded Gold Medals in the Manager and Hospitality categories respectively. The awards come only eight months after the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel opened its doors following the historic inn's £3.5 million transformation into a beautifully appointed, elegant and charming destination.

Held in Glasgow's Crowne Plaza, the Scottish Hotel Awards are regarded as the 'Oscars' of Scottish hospitality sector, and saw more than 500 industry leaders join Scottish Government Minister Humza Yousaf MSP and Commonwealth Games mascot 'Clyde' in celebrating the industry's achievements over the past 12 months.

SImon Miller, CEO of Luss Estates, commented: "These awards are a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the entire team at the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel, particularly as they come in our first year. We are especially delighted to be named Argyll's best Romantic Hotel, a category in which there was particularly stiff competition but one which perfectly reflects the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel's commitment to providing outstanding comfort and service in a beautifully appointed environment befitting our stunning and exceptionally romantic location."

The Loch Lomond Arms Hotel is a 14 room establishment located in the picturesque village of Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond. A former coaching inn dating back at least 300 years, in 2012 the hotel re-opened following a £3.5 million transformation by owners Luss Estates. Deftly combining the warm conviviality of the best of country inns with the pristine detail of a boutique hotel, the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel is at once a romantic retreat, dining destination and village pub.
