Stayed here several years back in a previous job and always was amazingly impressed with accommodation and food. In my new role, I am delighted to be able to come back and it if anything has got even better. The restaurant could not be better with great wines, a huge selection of freshly cooked, innovative menu items and a knowledgeable... More

Perfect room. Very clean and comfortable. Staff extremely helpful. The food was lovely and breakfast choice was great. Would certainly revisit and recommend to others visiting the area or to locals looking for a nice meal.

We travelled up from Manchester for my aunts 90th birthday party and decide to stay for two nights. So glad we did, the room, the food but most of all, the service were excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I hosted a small private dinner party for my wife, daughter and seven lovely guests on 7th November 2014. We were allocated a very comfortable room in which to dine, and which was made available to us all day for decorative purposes. All requests, either in advance or on the day were attended to without any fuss. The dinner and... More

If you are a fan of PBS Masterpiece series, Agatha Christie novels or anything that evokes the experience of being a guest in a traditional Manor style hotel then the Garvock is for you. That experience includes genuine attention to your comfort and needs; superb food; excellent service all within an atmosphere of gentile hospitality. This is truly a gem... More

We had our daughters wedding here on 24th October and everything was fabulous. The help and advice we received from Lorna was fantastic in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself everyone at the Garvock excelled and made sure we had a day to remember . We are familiar with the Garvock and it's quality ,... More

Great place for traditional afternoon tea. Beautiful setting, lovely house, attentive staff who are friendly and helpful. Good views across the manicured garden towards the Forth Valley and beyond. Treat yourself, you will not regret it

We had dinner in Garvock House in September 2014. I left a review following that visit and commented on the relatively slow service but also the fact they acknowledged it and apologised. We went back on Saturday night with another couple and thought the whole experience was absolutely excellent. The service could not have been better. It was an excellent... More

I was only a guest at an evening wedding reception. There was no one at the desk to direct me nor markers to say what room the venue was in. (Some hotels have more than one suite with more than one wedding event). The ladies toilets although clean and stocked were poor in that the locks didn't work and I... More
