Visited duck bay for some lunch recently and was very happy with it. The food was not a la carte but a very hi standard of your typical gastro Sunday lunch menu. The service was extremely quick and all dishes were presented beautifully. The only issue I had was the staff although friendly enough, they never smiled and looked very... More

We came here on our 39th wedding anniversary and had a great meal with very attentive staff and very fresh and tasty food. The food was quick to arrive even though the restaurant was very busy. We then had coffee and came home.

Having stayed in the various other hotels on Loch Lomond my girlfriend & I decided to try the Duck Bay. to say we were delighted with our choice is an understatement... I've never seen such attentive staff & received such exemplary service- from the warm welcome, being fussed over at dinner in the restaurant (which was also superb incidentally), the... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for the first time. We only live a short distance from the hotel, and although we often visit the fabulous restaurant, we had never spent the night - but as our friend was getting married here we decided to book ourselves in for a few nights. Our check in was quick and easy,... More

Restaurant - the kitchen seemed incapable of re-heating my Fisherman's pie, not once but TWICE our wonderful maitre d' even informed me that he burned his... More

We took my parents here for lunch and had the best table in the corner with view over Loch Lomond - just perfect. The food was good, special mention for the smoked salmon which was lovely quality & the finnan haddock - excellent. Thanks!

We had a great time at the restaurant. Staff was really friendly and food (especially deserts) were amazing. The view and the look of the restaurant will make your dinner or lunch a real event. There is a huge parking but I found quite difficult to identify the restaurant as the satnav will stick on the main road when the... More

Spent two nights here while attending a wedding nearby. This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting right on the edge of Loch Lomond. The property was very welcoming and well maintained with luxuriant flower baskets and tubs adding a very bright touch. The rooms were well furnished and the beds comfortable. We thought the rooms were on the... More

We took 6 rooms here for use after a wedding at a nearby hotel. Paying £129 per room, we had much higher expectations than was the reality. The hotel has a pleasant, if unspectacular, entrance but for anyone allocated rooms upstairs they will soon find themselves in the narrowest of corridors leading to the smallest of rooms. One of our... More
