Stayed here for a couple of nights recently and have stayed before - food always absolutely excellent at breakfast and dinner. Good wine list; staff very helpful and approachable; rooms very comfortable with DVD player - the hotel has a library of films to watch in your room; adequate parking; great lochside views with a beautiful countryside silence to enjoy....

First of all we were misled in terms of the location of the hotel because booking.com gives distances in air miles and not actual driving miles. Arriving from the North, and its free open spaces, we had to drive past an industrial compound and then passed through a property belonging to the Ministry of Defense... We had been so spoiled...

This was a little treat hiding in the Kilcreggan peninsula. Worth the effort to find. The surroundings are beautiful and the food is excellent. Friendly staff and a delightful stay. My only criticism would be that our room in the new wing was noisy and could do with better insulation and although the food was delicious it was a bit... More

I have stayed in most of the hotels around this area and the knockderry is most likely the best I have had the pleasure to stay in. I travel most weeks to the area and found the food to be excellent, the staff's service is impeccable. The owners are so nice and friendly to all, the grounds are beautiful.

We spent two nights here on a recent visit to Scotland. The setting is absolutely beautiful. We arrived in the afternoon. We were checked in by exceedingly friendly and helpful staff and shown our room which was absolutely immaculate. After a couple of drinks on the lawn we dressed for dinner.

We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon, and fell in love with Knockderry. The property is beautiful and a great place to just relax, and the staff was extremely warm and welcoming.

Wonderful location, excellent food and wine. Master room, sadly lacking. Needed dusting under furniture, shower leaked onto back wall causing floor to flood. A little TLC would make this rather expensive hotel perfect for a restful get a way. Include breakfast in the price of a room and we would return.
