Stayed Beautiful location by the loch. Really nice, traditional style hotel, with lots of wood panelling and relaxing lounge, with friendly and helpful staff making the whole experience very relaxing. Would definitely go again. Restaurant portions on the small side but very high quality. Lots of Wifi connections but often patchy connections - was a fairly remote area though.

We stopped on the spur of the moment to have a cup of tea and decided to stay for lunch. Although they were fully booked they kindly found a table for us with a beautiful view. Lunch was good but a bit on the pricy side, the service was friendly and excellent.

We held our wedding at Knockderry this weekend and it was the most amazing experience. All our guests were extremely complimentary about the location and perfect service. James and Laura from the hotel organised everything for us and it ran smoother than you could imagine. Service was perfect and the staff are warm and friendly. It is the most perfect... More

My partner planned an evening meal here months ago for a surprise proposal, he only briefly emailed the hotel informing them of this and booked a table- (I was completely unaware). Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and showed into a stunning lounge room which was warm and inviting and beautifully decorated. A lovely member of staff who I assume... More

I attended a wedding this weekend and although the setting and venue itself is aesthetically beautiful, I am absolutely flabbergasted at the manner in which the management staff conducted themselves. Now I'd say for the most part I enjoy writing positive experiences rather than negative. However I feel I should make any potential newly weds very aware of the pitfalls... More

I booked Knockderry House Hotel for a birthday present for my husband. There was an initial muddle at the start of our stay but Murdo could not have solved the issue with any more professionalism than he did. It was clear throughout our stay that our satisfaction was top of the list for him and his staff. The rooms are... More

We stayed in the Library suite at the top of the house. Good sized bedroom and ensuite and the sitting room was wonderful, with fabulous views of the loch. We sat in here and watched the sun go down. Our evening meal was very good and the dessert was particularly good, with lovely combinations of flavours. The breakfast is a... More

Beautiful setting and lovely old house but I'm afraid that's where it ends. The food was awful. DInner tiny portions, austentacious and very salty. Breakfast !! 13pounds for one small disc of potatoe underside black. Small hard fried egg and a small disc of haggis that tasted off. There was no flexibility in the menus and very little choice. Menus... More

We enjoyed a relaxing and enjoyable two nights at the hotel. We stayed in one of the contemporary rooms with a great view of the Loch and a really comfortable bed. The coffee machine and welcoming Tunnock's tea cake was a nice touch. The hotel sits in pleasant grounds right next to the Loch. Whilst staying we visited The Hill... More
