Went for an anniversary weekend- the hotel is charming, cosy, staff are helpful. The food was amazing, as is the view over the loch. We enjoyed exploring the area round about, including Linn Botanical Gardens in easy walking distance.

My wife and I have just returned from a two night stay - our first visit to Knockderry House Hotel - and left refreshed and satisfied. It is a beautiful, well cared for old house being very tastefully modernised to a high standard, whilst retaining the high quality finish and features of the original house. The two main public rooms... More

\\we stayed in the hotel for four nights while attending a friend's birthday celebrations in Garelochhead. The staff are really friendly, rooms finished to a high standard and my husband enloyed the Tunnocks Teacakes instead of the usual shortbread with the tea and coffee facilities in the room. Breakfast was lovely and freshly cooked to order. We ate one night... More

I was really looking forward to our two-night stay at Knockderry for my other half's birthday as I'd read the reviews and seen the photos - I was not disappointed! If anything, the reviews understate just how fantastic this place is, and the photos definitely do not do it justice! After an entertaining drive to get there through the dramatic... More

A very nice location with fantastic views across the lake. The surounding scenery is outstanding and the drive around the area very scenic. The hotel staff very polite and helpful, the whole place is clean and comfortable. The restaurant and food of good quality. Having breakfast next to an open fire made it so cosy. I would stay again next... More

We had our wedding at knockderry 2 weeks ago and had an amazing day. For us it was really important to have a laid back wedding with superb food and excellent attention to detail from friendly staff. Knockderry delivered on all of our wishes and exceeded our expectations. All staff members were friendly and looked after us and our guests... More

The selling point of this hotel for me was the food - not cheap, but dinner was fantastic and the breakfast great as well. The decor in the hotel is traditional but classy, good local beers on draught and a few nice lounges to relax in. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room had a great view of the... More

Stayed here with hubby for an overnight in a master room. Met on arrival by Laura at reception who was quite possibly the happiest and most enthusiastic receptionist I have ever met! Her warm welcome and attention to detail was a fine start to a first class stay. The hotel is small but perfectly formed with lots of charm and... More

Stayed here at weekend. Went with wife as a little treat. The location is lovely, looking out onto the water and over to Dunoon. The staff are wonderful. Attentive, polite and could not do enough to help. I would say that it was "tailored personal" service akin to a hotel in a much higher price bracket, but with an additional... More

Stayed here on business and was not disappointed. I had a friendly welcome and quick check-in. Room was clean, tidy and warm with a small wall mounted TV. The only problem was a dulce gusto coffee machine that was very noisy while boiling water. It put coffee bits in the hot water spoiling the taste of tea. The evening meal... More
