The experience is one not to be missed when it comes to being totally looked after from arrival to departure. This was our second visit and it was even better than the last time. The very warm welcome we received and the constant attention to detail in meeting our needs was first class. The room was very clean and as... More

We have just left Cluny Bank after our 4th visit. Once again we had a fabulous stay. Jules and Lloyd always make you very welcome. Between them you get great food, fabulous hospitality and a relaxing friendly and thoroughly enjoyable stay. Lloyds food is simply stunning, always excellent and often a few surprises along the way, Jules always has a... More

From arrival to departure you will be assured of a warm welcome and very high service. Our room was spotlessly clean, warm and very comfortable. Dinner is an absolute treat with fantastic food served nice and hot and with a seamless service. We can hardly wait to return, already booked!

We hadn't stayed for over six years......but will not leave it so long before we return! Our room had recently been redone, and was very beautifully decorated..(not that it wasn't before!). We also had a peek at some of the other rooms and would have been more than happy to be in any of them, all very tastefully thought out... More

Had a meal for my Husband's Birthday in November. All I can say is praise be for somewhere local where the food is exceptional, the Service warm, friendly and efficient and a good time was had by all - well, both of us! The diningroom is a bit dark and the meal and wine are expensive but a real treat... More

Nine of us (six adults, two young people and a child) had a fantastic meal for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. The food was creative and frankly excellent. The "narration" of the sweets by the chef was a highlight! Can't comment on the accommodation as we went for an evening meal only but it was genuinely fabulous!

We are a mature American couple in our 50s & 60s who spent our October, 2014, honeymoon in Great Britain. We relied heavily upon tripadvisor for our hotel & dining selections. Of our 5-nights in Scotland, 3 were spent at The Cluny Bank Hotel. We are not important people who truly enjoy fine-dining experiences. We believe that the other reviews... More

It's like checking into a stately home. Had a lovely reception from the lady owner who showed me to a room I would have expected to pay several hundred pounds for had it been in the lakes or the Cotswolds. Dinner was equally superb and again, very hospitable service. I hope to get back here soon

Having not visited The Cluny Bank for 6 years, all I can say is that Lloyd and Jules have continued to provide an outstanding place to stay and eat. The rooms are amazing and homely, the food is out of this world. Be prepared to try food you have never tried before and PLEASE let Lloyd prepare it the way... More
