Well where to start, We arrived on the Friday slightly frazzled after travelling 5 hours with 2 small children in the car, On arrival we drove past the entrance which is poorly signposted, There is also a strange area of what can only be described as waste ground at the front of the hotel, It mars your initial impression of...

The location was amazing and the bus service although only once an hour took you for a nice scenic ride around the knockderry peninsula and into Helensburgh where 2 train stations connect you to Glasgow at one station and up to the highlands at the other. Management was awful which from seeing other reviews, it wasn't just us thinking that.... More

My mother-in-law booked us three nights at Knockderry hotel as a mystery mini honeymoon. It was the perfect choice for such an occasion. We were in room 1, which was extremely comfortable with a wonderful view over Loch Long. The big, bright bathroom was a heavenly spot for a soak in the deep tub after a day out on the... More

Great place, food excellent, ancillary staff hard working, shame about the management! The only thing they managed to do was upset a Bride and Groom! This hotel is very regimental and does not create a pleasant atmosphere! We found it very difficult to enjoy the evening reception due to the hotel restrictions. Not at all child friendly! Great day soured... More

On a beautiful sunny evening we took a trip down the Rosneath Peninsula for the first time, and came across Knockderry and stopped on spec for food. Being a Monday evening the refurbished Victorian hotel was quiet but we were welcomed in, and provided with good seats in the lounge as we perused the interesting menu. The owners made themselves...

I attended a wedding at this hotel this weekend. I found the hotel itself lovely and the views and location fantastic. The room we had was more than adequate although needs improving for a 4 star establishment. Our weekend went fantastic until 10pm on the Saturday of the wedding when the owner of the hotel Murdo Macleod decided he would... More

I am late with this review , was only prompted to write when I saw the pop up when reviewing another place. I must stress how good the food was too - as we did Dinner B&B. We went here around Aug/Sept 2013 and absolutely loved it. The food was amazing – a tiny dining room and menu was seasonal,... More

We were not aware of the check in time however the very helpfull staff checked us in early. We had booked a contemporary room as my... More

The grounds are beautiful and service friendly. Unfortunately the beds and interior are worn and musty. Overpriced given the shape it was in. Regret not paying attention to some of the reviews I read. Wish we had stayed elsewhere.

We stayed at Knockderry for 5 nights after our fun filled busy wedding weekend in Edinburgh. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind. We had stayed 3 years ago and we knew we had to come back for our honeymoon. We booked the stunning Library Suite for the first 3 nights as a treat! It had incredible views... More
