My partner and I spent 2 nights at The Knoll for her birthday, we booked the suite for a special touch and we weren't disappointed. The room and bathroom were beautiful and spotlessly clean. Jen and her staff are really friendly and will bend over backwards to help out. They carried out all my wee secrets for my partners birthday,... More

Such a gem in the lakeside area. The house is charming and everybody made us feel completely at home. Fantastic breakfast too. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The staff are welcoming and nothing was too much trouble even though we were late go or breakfast.

My partner and I had a 2 night stay at the Knoll in August and it was a perfect relaxing way to spend the three days. What the Knoll manages to do is to take the imagery of the perfect venue and make them real - It really is as good as the pictures. The staff also manage to take... More

Apologies for the late review, but have to say we had a lovely, warm welcome when we arrived. Our room was very clean, especially the bathroom. We had a fully functional hospitality tray, good working TV and fluffy towels (dressing gowns were also a nice touch). The only niggles with the room was the bathroom window isn't frosted due to...

Absolutely blown away by the service and the "nothing to much to ask" approach from Jenny and her team. When we arrived late on Friday all the candles were lit in the porch, it had a lovely welcoming smell. The guest sitting room was wonderful. Our room was super. My husband took me for a special anniversary dinner at L'Enclume,... More

Charming and comfortable, with friendly service and wonderful breakfasts. Very good location. Entrance on the crown of a bend, so care required when going in and out! My partner was waiting for a new knee, so we couldn't take advantage of the area's best assets, but would love to return.

My wife and I stayed two nights at The Knoll, on arrival we were greeted by Moira who made us feel very much at home and welcome. Our room (3) was superb, beautifully decorated and spotless, the ensuite was the same. We ate at the Lakeside Hotel (10 min walk) and had a generous discount as we were staying at... More

<y partner and I arrived at The Knoll on Saturday (11th July) for a well-earned 3 night stay at The Knoll. We originally were only staying for Sun & Mon night, but hadn't realised that they didn't serve an evening meal on those nights, therefore extended our stay to include Saturday, so that we didn't need to find anywhere else...

Knollers, Owner at The Knoll, responded to this review

Firstly can I thank you for your kind comments in our visitors book and on check out to one of our team. It's such a pity you didn't mention any of the issues you raised in your review to us personally. The Knoll although small, has someone on duty 24/7 (usually me, the owner) to deal with any difficulties or... More
