This is going into my treasure box of memories as a hotel that has got everything and more on my expectation list. The two night stay last weekend 15th August was a gift from my family for a special birthday. Such a beautiful and peaceful location where nothing was too much trouble for the team at Knockderry. For me the... More

Stayed here overnight on the way back from a trip to Scotland. The stay was delightful from start to finish - very friendly staff (and a couple of dogs!), beautiful building and setting, nice room, great food. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights in August and found this to be one of the most stunning establishments. It is worth the detour to visit Knockderry House, and although there isn't a great deal to do in the vicinity, you can just lie back and bask in the warmth and professionalism the entire environment oozes, not to mention the...

I've just stayed at the Knockderry for two nights, only expected to be there for one, but it was so nice we stayed for two. The first night I booked the library suite, which is utterly sublime, the second night it wasn't available but the staff very helpfully put us in room one, which was stunning. The views are breathtaking.... More

We stayed here for three nights during the Commonwealth Games as we did not want to stay in Glasgow for that length of time. Extra tickets after we booked meant we spent less time at the hotel than originally planned and only meant we had one dinner at the hotel. This was an excellent meal looking out to Loch Long... More

I needed a place to stay for a night on a business trip in the area, but as my normal £50 per night B&B overlooking Garelochhead was full, I used Booking.com to find a substitute. I paid £100, but on arrival was told that that did not include breakfast. The website said "1 room left" and I was shown to... More

We visited at the end if July for our anniversary and stayed in the Library Suite at the top of the hotel. It was beautifully furnished with amazing views, helped by the fact that the weather was glorious during our visit. Enjoyed sitting outside for a drink before our evening meal on a sultry evening with no midges! The food... More

My wife and I had an incredibly comfortable stay for two nights in Room 4. Beth, the proprietor, and her staff were friendly, attentive and very accommodating. Our room was large and located in the main house. The restaurant was excellent. After trying it our first night, we decided to keep life simple and eat there for our second night.... More

Less than a hours leisurely drive from Glasgow City centre, probably 40 mins from the airport, we went via Loch Lomond. Arrived at the hotel slightly early than planned, but the friendly staff sorted our bags and showed us to Room 1 which was beautiful and overlooked Loch Long, the shoreline is accessible directly across from the hotel. Lovely bathroom... More
