Guest Information & Instructions
Ceud mile failte ……..a warm Scottish welcome to you
We have frequently been referred to as “The Jewel in the crown”. This is perhaps a slight exaggeration, with a more appropriate reference / metaphor being The Lodge on Loch Lomond Hotel surrounding our guests with our personal and comfortable interpretation of Hospitality, the precious metals bonding together the jewels of the crown being Loch Lomond.
Our situation on Loch Lomond is without doubt enviable. There are very definitely few places if any at all where you can listen to the Loch lap on the shores, the sun rising before your eyes, all from the comfort and slumber of your bed and pillow. Alternatively, where else could you sit and enjoy a romantic glass of Champagne with your loved one watching the sun set over the Loch?
Personally, we never tire of the scenery, it always succeeds on stopping our day, demanding a moment to stand and appreciate the view. No one day is the same and all our seasons each have their own dramatic appeal. Truly nature at its best.
Whilst we would never try to compete with our spectacular surroundings. We hope we at least compliment them in such a way as to allow uninterrupted appreciation without want or need.
The Lodge on Loch Lomond Hotel truly is a unique destination located on the beachfront at Luss and enjoying magnificent panoramic views over Scotland’s favourite loch.
The hotel’s facilities make for an ideal choice for Leisure, Conference and Wedding guests alike. Located only 30 minutes’ drive from Glasgow city centre and with easy motorway routes, it really is the perfect destination for escaping the buzz of the city and soaking up the relaxing atmosphere that being beside the loch provides.
This Loch Lomond hotel is in the area of many renowned Scottish Lodge‘s by Loch Lomond and is only 23 miles from Glasgow Airport , making it easily accessible via the main motorway links to Loch Lomond.
There are 48 guest bedrooms and a range of conference and banqueting facilities for up to 200 guests. The hotels location and it’s very own jetty enables our guests to connect with all that Loch Lomond has to offer.
The atmosphere at The Lodge on Loch Lomond is intimate, warm and charming and the team are focused on delivering a casual friendly approach. Colquhoun’s Restaurant and Lounge are the perfect place to relax and unwind and watch the changing landscape of the loch, the comfy sofas and floor to ceiling windows make this a perfect viewing spot and when the Scottish weather allows our Terrace provides a sun trap for dining and drinking al fresco.
A leisurely stroll from the hotel takes you into the quaint village of Luss and you can explore Scotland’s most romantic church and its fabulous grounds or hop on the water bus down to Loch Lomond Shores for a little retail therapy at Jenners.

Your health and safety is very important to us and in the unfortunate event that a fire occurs, we hope that you will take immediate action and follow our range of security measures! Here’s what you should do;
• If the fire is in your room; make your way out the nearest door and ensure you close the door behind you to contain the fire. Proceed immediately to the nearest available exit route and leave the building. Do not delay your departure and waste precious minutes by collecting your personal belongings – your health and safety is KEY. Make your way to the GRAVEL CAR PARK located adjacent to the Munro Building.
• If you hear the fire alarm, and there is smoke in your room already; please keep low to the floor and crawl to the door if possible to protect yourself from smoke inhalation.
• If you hear the alarm and there is no smoke in your room; head towards your room door. It will be your instinct to immediately flee, but please first carefully feel your door and door handle for heat…this will tell you if there are flames outside your door. If this is the case, please keep your door shut and place a damp towel at the bottom of your door to stop smoke from entering your room. You will be safer on this side of the door until the fire is tackled!
• If you must stay in your room, cover your mouth and nose with a cloth to protect yourself from potential smoke inhalation.
• Call the Reception desk (Call 0) or anyone you can so they can report the location of the fire to the emergency services when they arrive.
• Turn off any heaters in your room
• Fill your bath with water and pick up any container large enough to bail water on the fire if necessary.
• If you hear the alarm and your door is cool and there is not an active fire outside your door, proceed into the corridor. If you have a clear pathway along the corridor, please make your way to the nearest fire exit and proceed to the GRAVEL CAR PARK located adjacent to the Munro Building. Again, please do not delay your departure by collecting personal belongings. If there is smoke in the corridor, stay low to the ground and crawl to your nearest exit.
• DO NOT USE ELEVATOR IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, IN CASE OF POTENTIAL ELECTRICAL FAULTS!
• As stressful as this kind of event can be, you must try to remain calm and collected and listen for instruction. We have several trained staff members who will assist you in the unlikely event of a fire. Your health and safety is our biggest concern!
The pretty conservation village of Luss is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel. A member of our reception staff will be more than happy to direct you towards the village.
A settlement has stood on this site since medieval times although much of the current village dates from the 18th and 19th centuries, having been developed to house workers from nearby slate quarries.
With its prim, identical sandstone and slate cottages garlanded in rambling roses, and its narrow sandy, pebbly strand, the village became the setting for the successful TV soap ‘Take the High Road’ which undoubtedly contributed to its popularity during the 1980s and 1990s. For anyone wanting to escape the crowds, the 19th century parish church offers a haven of peace and has a lovely ceiling made from Scots pine rafters and some beautiful Victorian stained-glass windows.
Luss is a popular stopping-off point for visitors exploring the Loch Lomond area. You will find a visitor centre for tourist information on Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in Luss car park. There are several shops and refreshment facilities located within the village.
